New Star Wars Novel Will Fix One Of Rise Of Skywalker’s Biggest Mistakes

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was not solely divisive by way of narrative decisions, but additionally infuriatingly inconsistent with the continuity of the saga, main many followers to marvel if Lucasfilm rushed the manufacturing to satisfy the discharge date.

The final entry within the Skywalker Saga noticed the return of Palpatine in a remaining confrontation between the Sith and the Jedi whereas the remnants of the Resistance fought the Last Order to resolve the destiny of the galaxy. However the preliminary model of Episode IX as scripted by Colin Trevorrow was fairly completely different than what we obtained in The Rise of Skywalker. From what we’ve been informed, the director left the mission resulting from inventive variations with the top of Lucasfilm. That’s why when J.J. Abrams got here on board, he needed to rework the plot and write many issues from scratch.

In the end, this resulted in a plot that feels convoluted and rushed, to say the least. Certainly, since its premiere again in December, Episode IX has come beneath fireplace many occasions for counting on fan-service moments and forsaking a wise narrative within the course of. The film additionally compromised a number of established plot factors, each from The Final Jedi and different Star Wars initiatives.

Specifically, The Rise of Skywalker undermined Poe Dameron’s origin story within the official canon. As we all know, Poe was the son of two Resistance fighters who finally adopted his mother and father’ footsteps by becoming a member of the battle after his time within the New Republic Protection Fleet. Nevertheless, the final installment reveals that Poe was a spice-runner earlier than becoming a member of the Resistance.

Clearly, this contradicts the established lore, although it might seem that Lucasfilm is attempting to cowl this error up by releasing a brand new novel known as Poe Dameron: Free Fall. The e book, which is able to drop on August 4th, particulars Poe’s early years as a headstrong teenager after the demise of his mom on a journey to search out out the sort of man he actually is.

At any fee, that is simply one of many particulars that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker managed to mess up by way of continuity, but it surely’ll be attention-grabbing to see how Lucasfilm suits on this new narrative with Poe’s already established backstory previous to the final film.
