The balance, the Jedi, the Sith, and the force is what we all think about when we think of Star Wars. But hold on, because before you make any assumptions for Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, you should be aware to expect the best and we are here to tell you what you should.

All the hype for this movie is crazy, we just want this movie to come sooner. So, when is this movie going to be released? The release date for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is going to be on December 20th. So, there is some time to speculate and wait. 

Every story has a plot that makes the heroes embark on a journey. So, what exactly is the plot for the new Star Wars? The plot explains that the surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more as Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron’s journey continues. With the power and knowledge of generations behind them, the final battle commences.

Even though the setting of the story is unknown, we have some possibilities. So, where exactly does the story take place? When we were researching, we found out that they will be filming the movie at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England, and Wadi Rum, Jordan. With that listing, we could only imagine what the possibilities could be.

FHS Senior Isabel Guilmette says that even though she doesn’t have a clue on the plot, she makes a good point that can tie in the franchise as a whole. She believes that all of the new films are technically a parallel of the original and she’s right. 

Guilmette also believes that this has a great representation of the concept of good versus evil. She even states that the good versus evil concept is what makes the beauty of Star Wars. 

Guilmette believes that the story can go back to Rey’s home planet in Jacui and we would agree. She states that going to Jacui could tie-up the trilogy at the same place it began, and she believes that it is a good way to round it out. So, we can expect that ending it in Jacui might be the best move. 

Another thing to immediately expect is more of Emperor Palpatine. He is the most vicious villain who backstabs his previous master, Darth Sidious. Even though he died in Return of the Jedi, that doesn’t mean that he’s is still alive.

But how exactly is he in this episode? He will be in this episode to explain that the Force creates two powerful people in the galaxy, who can become even more powerful when they join forces, and their power will be far greater than what they could be individually. 

This could mean that Rey and Kylo Ren could possibly be the two most powerful people in the galaxy, who can become even more powerful when they join forces. 

Now, you might be asking yourself who is going to direct and produce it? The ones behind the scenes that we can’t forget about are J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, and Michelle Rejwan. 

So, when this movie comes out in theaters, you can go in blind and experience it – or you could freshen up on your Star Wars history by reading this article. I’m glad you chose the latter.
