It’s no mystery that a lot of people weren’t pleased with how Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ended, and with all the noise that’s come out online, HISHE on Youtube has released their take on how the end of the Skywalker Saga should have gone down.
Check it out:
If anything, the video is kind of objective about the film, and merely points out plotholes—like the HISHE videos usually do. Rey could have very well pulled everyone out of the sandpit, and Luke may have been able to help during the final battle, seeing as he’s able to influence the physical world even in ghost form.
Personally, I didn’t like how the film went down, and it kind of tries to tell two stories without any emphasis on character development. I mean, sure Rey is the main focus, but we don’t get meaningful arcs for Finn or Poe in the same vein as The Last Jedi. Not to mention Rose was terribly sidelined; so much for not giving in to the worst part of the fandom, Disney.
For now, the hype has seemed to die down for The Rise of Skywalker. I mean, if kids were able to love the movie, then I guess it isn’t so bad. I just kind of hoped that J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio followed some of the story elements that Colin Trevorrow was going for because it felt like a more faithful follow-up to The Last Jedi.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits digital March 31 and Blu-Ray/DVD on April 14.
