6. Leia died for no reason

They delayed the debut of Star Wars: The Last Jedi for a year after suffering an upset in 2012 and then called out to the Force in order to dispatch Leia. It took Luke physically projecting himself across the galaxy and engaging in a lightsaber battle before he perished. What do we think of Leia’s strength?

7. The Knights of Ren

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker Knights of Ren

In the next section, Ben Solo/Kylo Ren is forced to battle his former Knights of Ren brothers in order to earn redemption. It’s a powerful sequence that caps off a character arc that dates back three films… if we were describing the Knights before “The Rise of Skywalker.” They’re in this trilogy for less than 5 minutes and don’t say anything or have any personality. They basically existed only so we’d know the origin of Kylo Ren’s dorky last name, and when we finally saw them up close, it turns out they dress like the corniest nu metal band of 1996. PASS.
