Star Wars: Skywalker's rise reaches one billion dollars

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", the ninth and final episode of the Skywalker saga, reached $ 1 billion at the global box office, the Walt Disney Studio said on Wednesday.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Blu-Ray release date for digital HD is now set for March 31st, 2020, with physical copies of the Blu-Rays being shipped as early as April 13th, 2020!

Rey is training as a Jedi, and communicating with Luke's ghost.

"You're not like my father or my brother". You're new. Whatever happens, remember the force choose you Rey. "You're story isn't written by anyone else". He additionally had a writing credit score on the movie nonetheless, though he didn't write the script of the film presently in theaters.

Kylo Ren is revealed as the killer of Rey's parents.

The title was allegedly supposed to be Duel Of Fates.

Luke's ghost also hangs around Rey.

Google Phone app may get call recording feature soon
There will be a visual indicator for the person recording, but that's not much comfort for others on a call. This one could be a bit of a minefield for anyone concerned about their privacy.


Less than a month after Episode 9 hyperspaced into cinemas, an early draft of the movie, penned by original director Colin Trevorrow - who was sacked from Episode 9 in 2017 - and Derek Connolly, has allegedly been leaked online. The Holocron ultimately burns Ren's face, which is healed by a fusion of his skin with Mandalorian armor - the mask essentially made permanent in flesh. Kylo fights Darth Vader and loses (uh, yes please?). He spends most of the film connecting with a Sith lord named Tor Valum-who trained Palpatine-and shoving out the light that continues to tempt him.

Kylo Ren and General Hux stand tall above the cell issuing threats (definitely doesn't feel threatening, though), before the Resistance breaks in to free riders. The Force ghosts of Luke, Obi-Wan, and Yoda all appear in a last-ditch effort to save Ben Solo, but their efforts are in vain. It's notable that the film has slowed significantly - yesterday was the first day that Rise fell behind Rogue One with Rise on $481,307,423 compared to Rogue's $481,656,462. Now, we have to make do with the most unhappy of happy mediums: a movie that changed directors during pre-production and was an impossible-to-please-everyone sequel to the divisive The Last Jedi. But that wasn't the case in the original script.

Personally, I can see why Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker has garnished the success it has but is staggering behind The Last Jedi & The Force Awakens. The Rise of Skywalker alone directs the action to the new planets of Exegol, Passana, Kijimi, and Kef Bir - only returning to the established locales of Tatooine and Ahch-To.

There are plenty of other tantalizing things in Duel of the Fates. This time around, the plot instead focuses on a galaxy taken over by the First Order, which has cut off interplanetary communication to prevent rebellion, as well as Kylo Ren's continued fall to the dark side. With Snoke out of the way and Palpatine still dead, Kylo Ren was the big bad of the story. That portion of the plot would have largely involved Finn, Leia, the droids and Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico, who would apparently have been given a far meatier role here than what she was reduced to in Rise of Skywalker.

Rose is described as being a "key character" in Duel of the Fates.

- Rey hacked her staff into a lightsaber from the start of the film. Duel of the Fates doubled down on his villainy. At least we'll always have Babu Frick.

The ride opens with Resistance recruits receiving their orders from BB-8 and Rey in a briefing room, before they're hurled into space on a transport ship on a secret mission with ace X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron by their side. Both ideas were scrapped when J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio joined the project, but the script Burnett and The Playlist read take us to the very beginning of production-and shows us what Episode IX would have been without the fussing, firing, and reworking. But this is the internet, of course, so stay tuned.
