As you mention the allusions between Tahei & Matashichi and R2-D2 & C-3PO seem to be the most obvious, but the way the film is cut/executed is also similar. “The one thing I was really intrigued by was the fact that the story was told from the two lowest characters. I decided that would be a nice way to tell the Star Wars story…That was the ...

The film very quickly shows a flashback (or Force vision) sequence of her parents and what happened to them, but nothing more. During that flashback scene Kylo Ren has a voice-over and mentions that Rey's parents could have been great but instead they chose to be nobodies. IMO that's a hint to them at least being force-sensitive. The way I interpret it is ...

It's still unclear because we do not know what is necessarily still canon. As many know, when Disney bought Lucas Film, the former expanded universe including Knights of the Old Republic was demoted to "Legends" so that Disney could have a fresh start with the canon. In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an ...

When Ochi was given his mission to fetch Rey, the dagger was created by the Sith to give him the information he needed to locate Exegol in order to deliver her. The runic inscription has the GPS coordinates of where to stand. The shape points to where the vaults are. The existence of the wayfinder and the information it contained were too sensitive to ...

There is a pretty good analysis present on screenrant for the title: Rey then calls out and hears the voices of past Jedi who encourage her that she has the power to defeat Palpatine. The various Jedi lend her their strength and she then uses the Skywalker lightsabers who once belonged to Luke and Leia to kill Palpatine. Luke and Leia are two of ...

No, you are correct. Most Mandalorians do have names... “The character is very much built on the iconic presence of the Man With No Name in the Sergio Leone movies, played by Clint Eastwood, [and] the lone samurai in Akira Kurosawa,” he said. “It’s aesthetically and very, very much narratively built in that kind of iconic lone gunslinger/sword-...

Cameo roles are often uncredited in films. Usually it's to help keep the appearance secret, so the actor's name doesn't appear in a published cast list. In some cases, an actor will agree to appear in a film with the express agreement that their appearance will not be used in any publicity for the film. See Brad Pitt's (very) brief) appearance in Deadpool 2. ...

No. It does not. Near the end of the film, Anakin Skywalker's voice tells Rey: "Rey... Bring back the balance, Rey, as I did... The Force surrounds you, Rey... Let it lift you." So this implies that Anakin did bring balance, destroy The Sith, but it just didn't last. For all intended purposes, he is still The Chosen One (just not necessarily the only ...

Yes, most likely she made it herself per tradition... While it is not shown on screen, it's often known by non casual Star Wars fans, that usually force users, such as the Jedi and the Sith, construct their own lightsabers. Traditionally the Jedi have used "Jedi Initiation trials". The second was not consistent throughout the Order's history. ...

It isn't 100% clear yet if any natural corporeal beings were living (for long periods of time) on Exegol. With the help of the Star Wars Visual Dictionary we can surmise that many of the people involved with bringing The Emperor & The Sith back, were loyalists (Ochi), cultists (Sith Eternal), spirits of the Sith, and alchemist practitioners dabbling in ...

This cannot be answered within the context of the film directly, since none of that kind of stuff has been shown on screen. Not even using the toilet. This is kind of a trope that real life things are never shown and simply assumed to must have happened/existed, but they arn’t important to the story. Assuming there were some females on the Death Star one ...

[This discusses events in older Star Wars movies without spoiler space. Spoiler space is used for The Rise of Skywalker spoilers.] When was Rey born? From Wookiepedia, I'm piecing this together: Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary states that Rey is nineteen years old during the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which ...

Per the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary: the ship is named the Night Buzzard. The Night Buzzard was a modified Oubliette-class Transport used by the Knights of Ren during the First Order–Resistance war. The Buzzard was originally a dungeon ship on Osseriton, a penal world in the Unknown Regions. The vessel was liberated by the ...

When we first see In The Phantom Menace, he is already old enough (50ish) to have had a family, so not impossible for him for having one or more childs.

There are only a couple of possible conclusions... Ochi, also known as Ochi of Bestoon, was a humanoid alien male who was a Sith loyalist serving under the resurrected Dark Lord of the Sith and Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious during the New Republic Era. Sometime after 15 ABY, he was sent to retrieve the granddaughter of Darth Sidious—Rey—from her ...

As Napaloen Wislon mentioned in the comments, A New Hope's dialogue does suggest they knew something about who Luke's father is. Beru: There's too much of his father in him. Owen: That's what I'm afraid of. In addition the 2015 Star Wars Comic Series that takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back includes one arc that features Obi-...

Objects like these are called Macguffins. They are designed to move a plot along somehow, giving reasons for characters to go from one place to another, often times being mysterious. A MacGuffin (a.k.a. McGuffin or maguffin) is a term for a motivating element in a story that is used to drive the plot. It serves no further purpose. It won't pop up again ...

If you remember from the beginning, mace windu said we are keepers of the peace not security. This was in response to palpatine asking for protection for padme. Reluctantly the council sent Anakin and obi wan. Also.. remember padme was being hunted in the first place so she couldn't vote on the military expansion by palpatine. So... At the end when she ...

While not a lot is yet known about them, they are considered to be, Sith Loyalists and/or the Sith Eternal!! Sith loyalists were men who served and aided Darth Sidious and were strong supporters of the Sith Eternal. The assassin Ochi was one such person. And according to Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary the Sith Eternal are The Sith Eternal ...

I would argue yes even though it's not explicitly said because Palpatine sent Ochi, a jedi hunter to find them. This implies that Palpatine knew he would need someone experienced against force users to catch them because Ochi would have had experience catching or fighting force sensitive people.

The answer to this question should be fairly obvious to anyone who has watched all the movies. Star Wars (later re-titled A New Hope, Episode 4) was the first movie released. At that time they couldn't have any idea that this movie would be the blockbuster that it was spawning so many sequels and prequels. Point being it was episode 4! When it came time to ...

Pending an explanation in some comic or novel, it’s unlikely an answer will ever be shown in film form. The reason for this is that it’s entirely unimportant to the story. It explicitly stated that her parents were nobodies – well, they chose to be nobodies, for her safety. Since it appears being Force-sensitive indeed may have some connection with blood ...

The command ship didn't have any planet crackers, if you remember when Finn got his 'feeling' there is a clear shot of the underside of the ship, no gun, so no easy gun exploding. Simply flying above the ship with bombers (of which they had...I only remember a couple) is especially dangerous as there are hundreds of deck mounted guns blasting at them from ...

From movieweb: The Visual Dictionary. Author Pablo Hidalgo has given us some information as to why Kylo Ren is there in the first place. You can read an excerpt from the book below. "Kylo soon outpaces his stormtrooper escorts as he cuts a swath of destruction through the Alazmec who attempt to block his path to Vader's castle - or rather, its ...

Situations and priorities change. Dooku was about to escape, and Obi-Wan and Anakin were the nearest Jedi. Padme was relatively safe, away from the battle, and had clone troopers nearby. Even if the fall had hurt Padme, Anakin would not have been much help as he wasn't a healer.

According to interviews with JJ Abrams, the Leia scenes are mostly compiled from footage that was cut during the filming of The Last Jedi. Scenes and dialogue were rewritten around this footage, and a sprinkling of CGI was used to integrate the new footage into the new movie. https://screenrant.com/star-wars-rise-skywalker-leia-carrie-fisher-return-...

So does this mean that The Knights of Ren were always aligned with Darth Sidious? Yes, that's correct. When Kylo Ren and Darth Sidious were speaking on Exogal, he explains how he had created Supreme Leader Snoke; i.e., that Snoke was no more than an extension of Sidious himself (presumably because of Sidious' physical limitations due to being in such poor ...

I'm going to keep my answer relatively simple because I think it should be. I think there are several levels on which this can be interpreted. Ben Solo Kylo Ren is "killed" and is replaced by Ben Solo. Hence the Skywalker side of him rises and he helps defeat the Emperor. This is all metaphorical of course, but on a certain level, it isn't. There are ...

Just re-watching the movie, and the full line is: Luke Skywalker: I've seen this raw strength only once before, in Ben Solo. It didn't scare me enough then. It does now. So, yes, he's talking about Kylo Ren/Ben Solo.

I recommend watching all of the previous The Skywalker Saga films: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi. You DON'T need anything from any of the TV series (Clone Wars, Rebels, The Mandalorian, Resistance) or the other stand-alone films (...

TL;DR Just watch the original and sequel trilogy and you'll be fine. Long version: It'd be nice if you watch the last 8 episodes and have deep knowledge about Star Wars characters to understand all of the easter eggs and references in The Rise of Skywalker. However, this shouldn't be necessary. This movie is a direct sequel of The Last Jedi and the third ...

I doubt it. It is only in the US, and Spanish-speaking countries, that flan means something similar to custard. In Spanish-speaking countries and often in the United States, flan is crème caramel. This was originally a Spanish language usage, but the dish is now best known in North America in a Latin American context. Elsewhere, including in ...
