Return Of A Jedi: The Legacy Of "Star Wars"
The saga is coming to an end.
Or at least that’s what we’ve been told. The ninth and supposedly final mainline entry in the Star Wars franchise is set to release Friday. “The Rise of Skywalker” will see the stories of Rey, Poe, and Finn come to an end, after a journey that began when Disney purchased Star Wars publisher and licensor LucasArts.
Then again, maybe that’s the fate of a Star Wars movie. Rian Johnson’s infamous eighth installment “The Last Jedi” upset many fans of the series.
What are Star Wars fans expecting? And what’s next for the franchise?
Produced by Morgan Givens.
