Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Spoiler-Free Review (IT IS FANTASTIC)

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
STAR WARS...
Scrolling text...
Stars and pan to a planet...
All for the last time.

Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker is an excellent capstone to the 42-year-old franchise. Grown men wept openly, myself included, as the Skywalker saga drew to a close after a nine film run starting in 1977. The move hits the sweet spot with its intended audience, older children. My 10-year-old daughter loved it as much as I did even though I have failed to weave Star Wars into our regular watching regimen.  Prepare yourself for Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker spoiler free review!

The movie starts off with multiple exciting  scenes as we see what Kylo Ren's been angry about lately, the latest attempts by Finn and Poe to infiltrate the First Order, and Rey's progress with the force. The crew has been busy indeed. The film goes through multiple archeological quests, we meet old and new friends, and the galaxy hangs in the balance as all villains and heroes confront one another in the climax. That's all I can say without spoiling.




The light-saber fights were the best the series has ever seen. Both Kylo and Rey show their full power against multiple enemies. In one of their several duels, they are so exhausted, the action slows to the pace of the Darth Vader - ObiWan Kenobi fight in A New Hope. The audience gasped with every blow.

The droids are in the fore, but poor R2D2 takes a back seat to C3PO, BB8, and a new droid, DO, voiced by JJ Abrams. R2 is left behind at command for most of the movie. C3PO, BB8, and DO all play key roles solving problems where humans would be lost.

The star of the show is what Roger Ebert called the "space opera" of Star Wars. Good versus evil. Love versus hate. Light versus dark. If you don't like Star Wars, this one probably won't change your mind. If you like Star Wars, you will love The Rise of Skywalker.

The musical score by John Williams in ON THE SPOT. Every moment was made better by the echoes of the Imperial March or the main theme.

The movie has some mild language with some damns and hells, but no four-letters. Scenes are intense with quite a few on screen deaths and injuries, but nothing beyond a typical Star Wars movie. It was appropriate for our nine-year-old, but due to intensity, I wouldn't recommend it for the early elementary ages.



Are you planning on seeing Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker?  We are headed to Disney World next month to check out the new Galaxy's Edge rides, and to compare it to Disneyland!  To read more about our trip to Disneyland, read more here on Traveling Mom.
