Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was not solely divisive by way of narrative decisions, but in addition infuriatingly inconsistent with the continuity of the saga, main many followers to marvel if Lucasfilm rushed the manufacturing to satisfy the discharge date.
The final entry within the Skywalker Saga noticed the return of Palpatine in a remaining confrontation between the Sith and the Jedi whereas the remnants of Resistance fought the Ultimate Order to resolve the destiny of the galaxy. However the preliminary model of Episode IX as scripted by Colin Trevorrow was fairly totally different than what we bought in The Rise of Skywalker. From what we’ve been informed, the director left the venture resulting from artistic variations with the top of Lucasfilm. That’s why when J.J. Abrams got here on board, he needed to rework the plot and write many issues from scratch.
In the end, this resulted in a plot that feels convoluted and rushed, to say the least. Certainly, since its premiere again in December, Episode IX has come beneath fireplace many occasions for counting on fan-service moments and forsaking a wise narrative within the course of. The film additionally compromised a number of established plot factors, each from The Final Jedi and different Star Wars tasks.
Specifically, The Rise of Skywalker undermined Poe Dameron’s origin story within the official canon. As we all know, Poe was the son of two Resistance fighters who ultimately adopted his dad and mom’ footsteps by becoming a member of the battle after his time within the New Republic Protection Fleet. Nonetheless, the final installment reveals that Poe was a spice-runner earlier than becoming a member of the Resistance.
Clearly, this contradicts the established lore, although it might seem that Lucasfilm is making an attempt to cowl this error up by releasing a brand new novel known as Poe Dameron: Free Fall. The e-book, which can launch on August 4th, particulars Poe’s early years as a headstrong teenager after the demise of his mom on a journey to seek out out the type of man he actually is.
At any fee, that is simply one of many particulars that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker managed to mess up by way of continuity, nevertheless it’ll be fascinating to see how Lucasfilm suits on this new narrative with Poe’s already established backstory previous to the final film.
