Directed by J.J. Abrams. With Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson. Three decades after the Empire’s defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Defected stormtrooper Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance’s search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
not as pandering as it’s sequel, but I’m still getting more and more unhappy with the film the more I watch it. JJ Abrams can direct a beautiful movie with great ideas, but still can’t world build to save his life.
I have limited hope for the upcoming Rise of Skywalker, but maybe he’s taken some story writing classes since his last movie?
