(This article is pretty much just a list of major spoilers for “Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker,” but it’s tough to imagine that’s a surprise if you made it past the headline.)

After taking a few months to process just how completely wild “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” is, it’s time to dive back in to the discourse. There’s not much else to do right now, of course, with the whole coronavirus thing running amok. And now that Disney has added the film to the Disney+ library for the annual “May the 4th” celebration, so many more people are getting in on this madness, or jumping back in.

But that’s fine, since it’s going to be a few years before we have another “Star Wars” movie to fight about, so we can pace ourselves with the “Rise of Skywalker” discourse for a while. And to help you with that, we’ve got here a list of the most ridiculous parts of the last film in the absolutely mad new trilogy that you can bring up when you wanna start a fight. But remember to keep the fight online — social distancing is still the order of business here.

So here you go. Below we’ve got 23 big gripes about “The Rise of Skywalker.” It’s not an exhaustive list — such a thing would require me to write a book — but we can only think about this movie for so long before we go crazy, so this will have to do for now.
