A sequel, The Rise of Skywalker was released in 2019.


Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★1/2

"This movie was just as good as the last one, nearly perfect. The small problem, in this film, was that it was too confusing. It still had plenty of good things; the first half an hour (best part of the film by far!), the supreme leader Snoke's plan to destroy the resistance, the resistance's escape of the first order, the war outside the resistance base, Snoke's death, (the second best bit) Luke Skywalker's return to face Kylo ren, Luke's death (I am not sure if he died though).

'My Favourite character top 3 of this movie' is:

1. Yoda

2. Kylo ren

3. Luke Skywalker

Overall a near-perfect film which sets up a (probably) great finale to the star wars series."

Check out all the movies in the Skywalker Saga! Also worth having a look it as more action adventure fantasy with The Lord of the Rings trilogy - also starring Andy Serkis. And there's more master apprentice relationships in Doctor Strange.
