Podcast Stardust #45: The Force of The Rise of Skywalker

by Podcast Stardust

Our discussion of Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker continues with a discussion of the use of the Force throughout the film.

Even after two prior discussions of The Rise of Skywalker, there is still plenty to discuss about the movie. Besides, what is bigger in Star Wars besides the Force? With that said, we are taking a look at the presence of the Force in The Rise of Skywalker from the healing techniques, visions in the Force, dark side cave moments, and the power of Rey and Kylo Ren’s dyad. Join us on episode 45 as we discuss all of this and more.


On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • The use of Force healing in both The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian,
  • The power of the Dyad and the link between Rey and Kylo Ren,
  • The ability to communicate with the Force across the galaxy,
  • How The Rise of Skywalker builds on Force powers from The Last Jedi,
  • Leia’s use of the Force,
  • Luke’s abilities in the Force, and
  • Other uses of the Force throughout The Rise of Skywalker.

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!
