Natasha Kumar By Natasha Kumar May27,2024

Is there anything wrong? save from The Rise of Skywalker, and more broadly from the entire Star Wars trilogy overseen by Disney? This is the question that we are still asking ourselves, five years after the release of episode 9. It must be said that the three opuses carried by Disney following the acquisition of Lucasfilm were released. strongly criticized by the press and the public alike. There are numerous faults, which we will not return to. What then about the qualities of this prelogy, and more particularly of the final episode of the trilogy?

< h2>#6 THE Rey Skywalker/Kylo Ren DYAD

By choosing to update the screen and canonize the concept of the Force dyad, Disney has brought depth to the characters of Rey Skywalker and Ben Solo/Kylo Ren. The Jedi and the Sith have attracted each other like magnets since the first opus, The Force Awakens, and manage to get connected. This very close relationship between Kylo Ren and Rey Skywalker made it possible to break a certain Manichaeism that reigned until then. in the saga, by allowing the first to act of redemption and at the same time the second to doubt its nature.

< h2>#5 the film is beautiful

Despite having done anything with the Star Wars legacy, J.J. Abrams has put on film a frankly beautiful film, where the sequences are filmed with attention to detail, and the staging is relentless. Some magnificent scenes are worth the detour, such as Kylo Ren's arrival on Exegol in a battered temple. by lightning, or even that of the double-crossing duel. the impeccable photography between Kylo Ren and Rey on the wreck of a ship under raging seas.

Star Wars is also about its endearing little characters, often caring and cute, who are striking with their gimmicks. And at Disney isn't doing too badly in this little game (although the company will never match Lucasfilm's R2-D2/C-3PO duo). Above BB-8 and the Porgs, we find Babu Frik, the little alien we met in by Rey, Poe and the others on Kijimi.Little Anzellan was entirely made in animatronics, and animated by five puppeteers. “Babu Frik has 23 points of articulation in his face and perfectly articulated fingers! We could make him do whatever we wanted even if we didn't know what we were going to make him do!” ,revealed Neal Scanlan, who supervised the project. the creation of the creatures of the new trilogy. The most popular character in postology, his species was the most popular figure in postology. reintroduced in an episode of season 3 of The Mandalorian, in which Din Djarin asks the droid repairers on Nevarro to repair IG-11.

The most moving scene in a film which has almost none. After having been released, Defeated by Rey during a fierce lightsaber duel on the planet Kef Bir, Kylo Ren is disoriented. It is then that he receives a vision of his late father (whom he murdered earlier in the saga), who tries to reason with him and show him his love. “I miss you, son. (…) Kylo Ren is dead. My son is alive. (…) Come back.” “I love you” Kylo Ren replies. “I know”Han Solo concludes. A direct reference to another moving scenethat made millions of fans cry 44 years earlier inThe Empire Strikes Back,before Before the smuggler is cryogenically frozen, he exchanges a kiss and uses the same words with Leia.

Another scene, another cult reference. When Rey retreats to the first Jedi temple of Ahch-To, Luke Skywalker's Force ghost appears to him, and gives him one last lesson by taking out his trapped X-Wing ; in water. A feat finally achieved by the Jedi after his successive failures in The Empire Strikes Back while he was still as Master Yoda's apprentice. Disney often abuses fan-service; excess, but this wink is still worth the detour.

From A New Hope in 1977 until The Ascension by Skywalker In 2020, the most famous Star Wars family has always been at the center of the saga. But after Anakin, Luke and Rey, the end of Skywalker finally seems to be taking shape. because even if Star Wars X will take Rey as main protagonist, and will tell how Luke's student will try to rebuild the Jedi Order, after the fall of the First Order , It seems that Disney wants to move on. something else, now cleared of of Luke, Leia and all the past ghosts of the franchise. We imagine more of a handover rather than a renewal of the Skywalker family.
