The Best Quotes From The Rise of Skywalker

The final movie in the “Skywalker Saga” came out in 2019 – and what a great movie it was. Directed by J.J. Abrams in his second stint at the helm of a Star Wars offering, The Rise of Skywalker is a triumph of filmmaking.

Depending on your point of view, the prior movie The Last Jedi was either one of the greatest Star Wars films or the worst, so Abrams' fortunes could have gone one of two extreme ways, but he went all in and made one of the most brilliant and dramatic films he could.
