On this episode, Dominic, Ben, and Chris complete the SWU Podcast's film commentary series by watching and talking about Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker. The have an honest conversation about the film, the good and the bad. Highlighting some of the great moments in the film, while also breaking down some of the questionable decisions. They talk about the conclusions to the arcs of Rey, Ben, Finn, and Poe, as well as the reduced role of Rose and the introductions of Jannah and Zorri. Plus, how D-0 surprised us, JJ Abrams visual styles, could the film have benefitted from an extra 30 minutes, and far less Rey Palpatine talk than you're probably expecting. All this and much more.
