Trivia

Many fans were disappointed by how this film disregarded several of the plot threads started in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015), and how it answered some of its lingering questions. Writer/director Rian Johnson stated in interviews that he had read J.J. Abrams' script for The Force Awakens, but Abrams never shared any long-term plans he had for the next two films. In fact, there was never an overarching story outline for the trilogy that he had to adhere to; both Abrams and Lucasfilm gave Johnson almost full creative freedom to develop the story as he saw fit, and they were reportedly enthusiastic about some of his more controversial choices.

Goofs

In the opening sequence the bombers are going to throw bombs on an enemy ship. Since they are in space this won't work. Bombs don't fall down in space. They would need some kind of fire device to fire them down. The canon of this movie confirms that these bombs are magnetic in nature (where?) and would therefore be attracted to an enemy spaceship's hull. If this were true then why not fire dozens of small, fast moving projectiles from a distance instead of using large, slow bombers to deliver the payload? See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Resistance Evacuation Officer: We're not clear yet. There are still 30 pallets of cannon shells in C bunker.
Lieutenant Connix: Forget the munitions, there's no time. Just get everyone on the transports.
[Star Destroyers appear]
Lieutenant Connix: Oh, no.

What Was This???
17 August 2019 | by karsansocratesSee all my reviews

Politically right-wing capitalist need to make money money money, socially inept piece of capitalistic garbage! It was riddled with Asian love interests and men not understanding anything (hey, I am a man and I still do not understand how Mary Poppins survived the void). Being a Star Wars fan now is a embarrassing as wearing those made in China MAGA caps.
