New Star Wars: Folks, it’s happening. In less than a month, you’ll be able to watch Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker and all questions will be answered. Will J.J. Abrams end the series with a bang? Will he go risky like The Last Jedi or play it safe like The Force Awakens? Either way the discourse will be bonkers. 

Because after a mixed reception to The Last Jedi and Solo’s box office flop, there’s a lot at stake here.  Abrams also has the challenge of keeping Leia Organa a central character despite the death of actress Carrie Fisher in 2016. But almost everyone involved believes they’ve nailed that.

The Mandalorian and the launch of Disney Plus has brought momentum back to the Star Wars hype train. Hopefully The Rise of Skywalker can give the Skywalker saga that strong conclusion it deserves.
