“The Star Wars Saga” is a popular series full of various movies and television shows. The movies all started with the popular director George Lucas. Lucas was able to create this well-known, action, and adventure series in 1977. Recently, the series got taken over by the director JJ Abrams. 

 Abrams inherited the pressure of continuing a legendary series with his own style of writing and producing. In the past he has produced “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and recently directed “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”

The “Star Wars” series is known for its science fiction action scenes, compelling story lines, and iconic actors. The saga is filled with inexplicable “force” powers and advanced technology unique to the “Star Wars” universe. 

Star Wars is recognized by its signature lightsaber duels and incredible story lines. Abrams continued the trilogy by creating his own stories taking place after George Lucas’ movies, episodes IV, V, and VI. 

With the pressure of creating a movie equally filled with family history, action, emotion, and plot twists, Abrams phenomenally executes the story he creates with the mysterious scavenger Rey. Rey is a force-sensitive orphan who takes stage at the main focus of the story line. Followed by her friends, Poe Dameron, Finn, and the legends Chewbacca, Princess Leia, and Han Solo, she makes her journey to stop the First Order.

Picking up from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Abrams directs “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” to be the final movie to wrap up the complete story line. Released Dec. 19, the movie has the perfect amount of action packed scenes, hereditary, and science fiction to bring the series to an end. 

The reveal of Rey’s inheritance of force powers, Kylo Ren’s true destiny, and the main villain of the story keeps viewers on the edge of their seats as each scene plays out. After searching for her parents, Rey is able to bring closure to her life’s purpose and become the leader the Resistance requires her to be.

Poe Dameron and Finn are able to bring out their best moments during the recent release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” They are able to lead the Resistance to victory over the First Order and bring peace to the galaxy alongside Rey. 

The movie consists of the demise of major key characters to the story line, emotion that will bring some to tears, and action packed lightsaber duels that will have you craving for more. Whether you are a fan, watching the movie on its release date, or you need something interesting to take up your time, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is a movie that will leave you with several questions and longing for more action.
