Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker - 10 Reasons To Be Worried

What plot points are we looking forward to again?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has a lot it needs to accomplish. It has to conclude not only Disney's sequel trilogy, but the entire "Skywalker Saga" (supposedly), while also trying to win back angry fans after The Last Jedi, and being, you know, a good movie.

So y'know, no pressure.

Sadly, it doesn't look like it's going to succeed in all of these areas.

It may be unfair to judge the film since it's still a few weeks away from release, but based on Disney's track record with the franchise and what we know about the film so far, it's tough to be too optimistic. Make no mistake, The Rise of Skywalker is destined to disappoint, at least in some capacity.

It may not be a total disaster (hopefully), but it probably won't be the grand ending one could hope for, and there are plenty of reasons to be worried about how the film turns out.

10. All The Fan Service

As the “final” installment of the saga, there’s a good chance that Abrams and co. will pack in a lot of fan service. Fan service isn’t inherently a bad thing, but too much of it can be detrimental to the film.

This film could easily go the Avengers: Endgame route of having many, many callbacks to previous films. And as great as Endgame was, it suffered from going a bit overboard with it.

The "Darth Rey" we see in the D23 Expo trailer is another example of fan service. There are theories that she may actually be the villain. We don't know the context of Darth Rey just yet, so unless the theories are correct (which, given this trilogy's track record with fan theories, don't count on it), this is likely just a money shot from a dream sequence.

Then there's the possible reveal that Rey is actually, in fact, a Skywalker, or perhaps a descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi, which brings us to...


Aaron Kirby hasn't written a bio just yet, but if they had... it would appear here.
