The new novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker sheds some light on many important topics about the last entry in the saga, but there is still no Ben Solo Force Ghost at the end.
When Star Wars The films are treated as novelization, they usually give us a lot of information about the intricate details of the plot that the theater cut failed to include. Unfortunately for Episode IXHowever, not even a series of books could be expected to cover all unexplained narrative threads and plot holes. Three months after its launch, The rise of Skywalker It is currently one of the most divisive films in the series and the fact that it has not met the box office expectations does not help.
Most critics criticized Abrams' final act of the Sequel Trilogy for its shallow resolutions and moments of fan service that go against what Rian Johnson established in The Last Jedi, although some really think that the movie was rushed and incomplete.
In fact, there is a lot of wasted potential in The rise of Skywalker that people think it should have been two movies. That is to say, many were disappointed not to have seen Ben Solo as a Force Ghost at the end of the film with Luke and Leia, especially since the last scene directly reflects The return of the Jedi when the ghosts of Obi-Wan, Yoda and Anakin appear to Luke.
Ben went through the same trip as his grandfather and finally hugged the Side of Light again, so it would only make sense to have him as a Force Ghost at the end of the movie, right? Well, apparently Abrams did not share this popular opinion and, as one user reported on Twitter, even the novelization does not include any mention of Ben's Ghost of Strength, although they did say that there is some additional information in his death scene than fans They might find hopeful.
While these additional pieces of information do little to undo the damage caused by mediocre resolutions of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, fans will at least have the opportunity to have a more coherent story, even if that means they should approach other sources to find their answers.
