Something is just not okay with this whole thing. Rey had not yet returned home when she should have returned a long ago. So Ben decides to go after her and take the twins whit him as well who also miss their mom very much.
A little adventure begins with Cass, Kay and their dad on a really snowy planet.💙

“You know I’d do anything for you.”
From Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: Expanded Edition by Rae Carson:
Wiping her hands, she cut around the Falcon toward the on-ramp, and nearly ran into Rose.
“Thank you,” she said to the mechanic. “I can’t believe how fast you got this ship ready.”
Rose smiled. “You know I’d do anything for you and the Falcon.”
There were so many things Rey ought to say to her. She settled for “You’ve been so kind to me. You and Beaumont, Connix and Snap…”
Rose’s smile faltered. Became a straight-up glare. “Why does it feel like you’re saying goodbye forever?”
“I’m not! I just…” Rey didn’t know what she was trying to say.
Before she could figure it out, Rose enveloped her in a hug. “Me too,” she said to Rey. “Now go do your Jedi stuff.” After a final squeeze, Rose headed toward the Falcon for a last-minute inspection of the ship’s landing gear.
#ReyRoseWeek2021 will run from June 27 to July 3.

Finn: People tend to think I'm the smart one in the relationship.
Poe: *stumbles into the background struggling to put on skinny jeans, trips, falls*
Finn: What they fail to realize is that there is no "smart one" in our relationship.
*camera zooms out to reveal finn is holding a toaster with two books lodged inside*

Does bringing Palpatine back REALLY make Anakin’s character arc redundant?
I’ve probably hinted at this previously (here), but TROS is my least favorite Sequel film. I don’t despise it, necessarily, I just think more could have been done with what we were given.
But there’s this argument I keep seeing popping up, which is the notion that Anakin’s arc and the prophecy of the Chosen One are essentially pointless or redundant, now.
And, uh, I disagree.
Anakin’s character arc happened on both a personal, emotional level, and a cosmic one.
Personally, Anakin needed to learn to let go of his fears, his anger, his guilt and his pain. He needed to learn to accept that he can’t possess people, they have free will, and that he can’t repress his emotions, he must, instead, confront them.
Cosmically, Anakin was the Chosen One, aka he was created, chosen by the Force itself to destroy the Sith (whose only goal is to enslave the Force and destroy its naturally balanced state) and bring Balance.
From an emotional point-of-view, the Emperor coming back or not is irrelevant. Anakin finally managed to let go of his pain, release his guilt, cease being selfish an greedy and decided to instead show selfless compassion, saving his son’s life at the cost of his own. The Emperor surviving or not doesn’t change the fact that Anakin became a better man one last time, and sacrificed himself to save his son.
Tumblr media
From a cosmic point of view, the impact is undoubtedly diminished… but not as undone as it was in Legends, for instance.
In Legends, Anakin’s sacrifice results in Luke surviving the 2nd Death Star, and that’s it.
Palpatine comes back after, like, 5 years.
The galaxy is at war for an extra 26 years - against the Imperial Remnant and then the Yuhzan Vong - before there’s finally a momentary peace.
Hundreds and hundreds of Sith Lords pop out after Sidious, even a century later.
Tumblr media
Legends Anakin never really brought Balance to the Force.
In canon, Anakin did much more.
He basically condemned Palpatine to 30 years of pure agony. The Sith Lord was out of the game, for the most part. He may as well have been dead, because his impact on the galaxy was almost equal to none, Snoke and Hux Sr. were the ones doing all the work.
Because of Palpatine being trapped in a decaying clone body, there was around 28 years of peace, including a 6-year period of tension, followed by a year of chaos, which was quickly ended once Sidious was killed for good.
A couple of darksiders arose, sure, but none of them had the “fuck the Balance” philosophy of a Sith.
Canon Anakin brought Balance to the Force, and the Force stayed balanced for 30 years, before it needed to find a new champion to restore it (Rey). The Balance was restored in the span of a year. In the long run, the events of the Sequels are a parenthesis at best. Take from that what you will.
Tumblr media
So no, not really.
TROS doesn’t make Anakin’s character arc redundant.
Yes, I do think it diminishes it a bit (instead of the Force being balanced forever, it’s balanced for 30 years, then unbalanced for a year, then balanced again)…
… but not nearly as much as the previous continuity did.

ben solo didn’t go through that much to just die and have his identity stolen so dlf can say “it’s okay there’s still a happy ending because there’s an honorary sk*walker”
palpatine manipulating him since the womb and plaguing his thoughts and impacting his decisions, his mother wouldn’t listen to him, his parents called him a monster and Luke thought about murdering him. Snoke physically abused him and tormented him with his own neglect. He wanted to be like Vader because people feared him and Ben was always afraid.
He is one of the only characters that has trauma and actually shows symptoms of it. Mental illness isn’t glamorous. You can’t say “Anak1n was manipulated and had trauma” but then call kylo ren a ‘cry baby’ or ungrateful child. He is a comfort character to many as someone who openly shows emotion despite being marketed as a one-dimensional villain to sell toys. The character most popular amongst women (13 y/o girls I don’t mean you) in Star Wars, but is shunned by the company because they pander to dudebros and tfm.
He is a skywalker by blood and THE LAST SKYWALKER. He deserved the most in this trilogy and I’ll never not be mad at everyone giving R3y his place just like his own family did.

Luke trusted Rey his name because he knows how much she looked up to him and he knows Leia took her in.
It's obviously that even if he no longer exists in flesh and blood, he knows she is part of the family because of his sister.

It’s just almost funny to me that Anakin Skywalker, noted feral gremlin, looked at two of the most intelligent, competent, educated & moral people in the galaxy, Senator Padmé Amidala and Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, and decided that he knew what was best for them. Not that maybe he should listen to them.
Honestly just the AUDACITY of the very idea that Padmé and Obi-Wan should have “accepted on faith that he knew what was best for them.”
*disappointed Obi-Wan voice* Anakin.

When I get married, my significant other better not call me wife. Its General. Ok. Instead of "I now pronounce you husband and wife" its going to be "I now pronounce you General and General." Alright? We'll be Generals of the Resistance, the spark that will light the fire of hope.

After I came out of the cinema, from watching Rise of Skywalker, I got in the car and immediately started crying, I'm not exactly sure why. I think it was just emotions. I know it wasn't because I didn't like it. I love(d) it.

i've seen star wars episode 7 and 8 but not 9 yet. Should i watch 9 at this point?
Yes. If nothing else, watch it so you can finish the canon story that was told and spite-imagine your own better trilogy (as I'm currently doing).
But honestly, TROS is a lot more fun than people give it credit for. I honestly had a blast watching the first half of the movie, and as long as you turn your brain off after the big Death Star fight you'll have a moderate amount of fun watching the second half too. It's ultimately an incredibly dumb but also fun movie. 6/10, would be a 7.5 out of 10 if it weren't for the Palpatine parentage reveal and the Reylo kiss tbh. It's not a good movie by any means, but I honestly have 50x fewer fundamental issues with TROS (both as a concept and in execution) than I do with TLJ.
