Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Not only was it divisive in terms of narrative options, it was also infuriatingly inconsistent with the continuity of the saga, which led many fans to wonder if Lucasfilm hastened production to meet the release date.
The last entry in the Skywalker Saga saw the return of Palpatine in a final confrontation between the Sith and the Jedi, while the Resistance remains fought against the Final Order to decide the fate of the galaxy. But the initial version of Episode IX as Colin Trevorrow wrote it was quite different from what we got in The rise of Skywalker. From what we have been told, the director abandoned the project due to creative differences with the director of Lucasfilm. That's why when J.J. Abrams joined, had to rework the plot and write many things from scratch.
Finally, this resulted in a plot that feels complicated and rushed, to say the least. In fact, since its premiere in December, Episode IX He has been criticized many times for trusting moments of service to the fan and abandoning a sensible narrative in the process. The film also compromised several established plot points, both of The Last Jedi and another Star Wars Projects
Namely, The rise of Skywalker He undermined Poe Dameron's origin story in the official canon. As we know, Poe was the son of two Resistance fighters who eventually followed in his parents' footsteps by joining the fight after his time in the New Republic Defense Fleet. However, the latest installment reveals that Poe was a spice broker before joining the Resistance.
Obviously, this contradicts the established tradition, although it seems that Lucasfilm is trying to hide this error by launching a new novel called Poe Dameron: free fall. The book, which will be released on August 4, details Poe's early years as a stubborn teenager after his mother's death on a trip to discover the kind of man he really is.
In any case, this is just one of the details that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker He managed to get confused in terms of continuity, but it will be interesting to see how Lucasfilm fits into this new narrative with Poe's already established backstory before the last film.
