Podcast Stardust #123: The Rise of Skywalker Six Months Later

by Podcast Stardust

With some distance from the release of The Rise of Skywalker, we discuss how the movie holds up, ranks, and our favorite parts.

The Rise of Skywalker left theaters months ago and is now available on Blu Ray and streaming (including Disney+). It is no longer a new movie, and now that we have seen it multiple times and read the novelization at least once, we are ready for another discussion. How does this movie hold up? Now that it is no longer fresh, how does it compare to the other Star Wars movies? We have plenty to discuss on this episode of Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • How The Rise of Skywalker benefits from the novelization,
  • The similarity of this movie to Harry Potter,
  • What parts of the movie we would change,
  • Cameos in the movie and what bit parts we would like to play,
  • Our favorite parts of the movies, and
  • How The Rise of Skywalker ranks among the sequel movies, saga movies, Disney era Star Wars movies, and all the Star Wars movies.

Thanks for joining us for another episode. Please subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts and spread the word to all of your Star Wars friends. May the Force be with you!
