We have just one word to describe this finale and that word is epic! Yes, we used it once already above but that's because Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker really is packed with everything you hope to see from a finale. As with the previous movies, you can expect to feel like you're on an adventure full of captivating action. Special shoutout to the mini lightsaber battles scattered throughout the film and of course the final showdown. Every action scene was extremely well done and had moments of tension that made it impossible for you to lose focus.

As enjoyable as the action is, it isn't the only thing that makes this a movie we approve of. There are great moments of humour that perfectly placed throughout to help ease some of the tension that quickly builds as you watch everything unfold. Prepare to have your heartstrings pulled because, in addition to funny one-liners, the movie does a great job of using emotional scenes to make this a very well-rounded experience.

Of course, no finale would be worth it without answers to burning questions and thankfully this movie does a good job of bringing closure to the Skywalker story.

If you haven't already watched the trailer, you can check it out below.

  1. Hi Owl!

    This movie was the saddest of all of the Star Wars movies! I loved how they made it.

    My favorite scene was with Rey and Kylo Ren. Rey was fighting Kylo Ren and in the end, Rey accidentally kills Ren for a moment, but then Rey saved Kylo Ren. “I wanted to take your hand. Ben’s hand.”

    I also like it when Han Solo said: “Kylo Ren is dead. My son is alive.”

    I love your magazine, and my favorite part is Snapshot. Thanks for making the coolest magazine for kids. It really matters to kids.
