Star Wars franchise set to conclude

Star Wars franchise set to conclude

Joshua Beer, Staff Writer

The end of an era is upon us. On December 20th, the last Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released. The Star Wars franchise started in 1977 when George Lucas decided to bring his now infamous idea to the big screen. The first installment was Star Wars: A New Hope. Now 42 years later the beloved franchise will be coming to an epic conclusion, however there are still many unanswered questions.

One of the most popular questions is who are Rey’s parents and if Luke Skywalker is actually dead?  Many people believe that Luke Skywalker and Rey must have a connection due to both of them being incredibly strong with the force. As for Luke, he supposedly died at the end of the last Star Wars movie but with him being listed in the cast for the upcoming movie and his death not being 100% confirmed, there are high chances that he is alive for the new movie.

To come full circle it is almost guaranteed that one of these two rumors are going to be true from just the title of the move : The Rise of Skywalker, which foreshadows most likely that either Luke Skywalker isn’t actually dead or that Rey is a Skywalker. 


Obliviously since this will be the last installment of Star Wars there are huge expectations. The past two Star Wars films excelled in the box office, especially for the opening weekends. With that being said when Stars Wars: The Rise of Skywalker releases don’t be surprised if it brings in yet another record income. This will be the third Star Wars movie under Disney which they Bought from Lucasfilm in 2012 for a little over 4 billion dollars. Ever since Disney purchased Star Wars there have been complaints about how the movies just aren’t as good and doesn’t have the same feel as the ones prior. Disney will get one more chance to impress the audience when the last Star Wars movie comes out this December. I am beyond excited for it and cannot wait to see how this amazing journey comes to an end.
