With The Rise of Skywalker expected to be a $450M global opening, it's fair to say that Star Wars still holds popularity among all ages! But with this film, comes the end of another trilogy and the final episode of the Skywalker Saga. The movie follows Rey as she searches for the strength of all the Jedis that have come before her. Rey, Fin, Poe, and their loyal droid friends (old and new) must once again take on the First Order to save the resistance one last time. Will the gang be victorious and save all of the free worlds in the galaxy, or will Kylo Ren destroy them all in efforts to become the Supreme Leader of the Sith? Having seen the movie opening night, I suggest you venture out to the theaters yourself and see this one on the big screen, you won't be disappointed!
But with the end of the Saga, what does that mean for Star Wars fans who anxiously anticipate the release of another movie? Get comfortable and study up on the old Episodes, because there isn't another planned release reportedly until 2022. There has been some discussion about who will write, direct, and star in the next films, but fans can expect to hear more details about all of that in January 2020. I'm sure the Star Wars franchise will give us just enough teasers here and there to keep us all on the edge of our seats for the next three years.
And if you need something new to tide you over between movies, you can always tune into the Mandalorian on Disney+. In case you've missed all of the "baby Yoda" memes taking social media by storm, he is one of the new characters from the popular show that started streaming on November 12th. Disney+ has been releasing one episode a week, and the first season will conclude on December 27th. The story follows a Mandalorian, or 'Mando' for short, that is played by Pedro Pascal. A Mandalorian is a bounty hunter who is known for being a strong warrior and a rare find in the universe. In one of the Mandalorians bounty missions, he encounters a child, which fans have dubbed as "baby Yoda". With this series being set years after the Jedi Grand Master Yoda has passed, he's not actually baby Yoda, but he's of the same species and he has certainly captured the hearts of fans across the globe!
