First of all, I know I covered this, however I went without spoilers of the movie and it's been a month since the movie came out and I think I am in the clear to make more observations on the movie at this point of time with it being a month and I am pretty sure everyone has seen the new Star Wars Movies.
Now, I wasn't expecting a lot of things, like I said in my first impressions post like I thought Leia was going to die when Kylo Ren shot those missiles from his Tie Fighter which mind you Darth Vader has the same similar fighter like Kylo had in the recent movie and that was a comparison I noticed between the original 3 movies to the ones after Episode 6. The next thing that I thought was the entire Luke Skywalker thing, when he fought Kylo Ren, I thought he actually appeared at that planet so I didn't know it was a hologram of Luke from another planet. Now the part of him disappearing to the point where there was nothing but his robes left as you know that was what happened to Obi Wan Kenobi back in Episode # 4 A New Hope. I didn't think he made himself this mentally exhausted to a point of him dying. I was like ok, what the heck just happened in the movie.
Another thing was I saw the AT AT's the walkers that we saw in Episode # 5 The Empire Strikes Back which is the first time we have seen since the 5th Episode in the Star Wars Trilogy. There was a lot of what the heck moments during the movie, it is hard to remember every moment. There are theories she could of been family from another character as she isn't related ton Emperor Palatine at all. Also another question I have is how are they going to write off Leia's character as we all know Carrie Fisher passed away a year ago back in December and I heard rumors they will use older footage from the past, but not sure how that will be used which would be hard. They cant really use footage from her back in Episodes 4 - 6 unless CGI is used and CGI stands for Computer-generated imagery which actually used for the younger version of Leia and also Grand Moth Tarkin in Star Wars: Rogue One, so anything is possible and can happen in Episode 9 in 2019.
Have a great Afternoon!
