Update: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker contains several sequences with flashing lights that may affect those who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or have other photo sensitivities.

Ever since audiences first jetted off to that galaxy far, far away, Star Wars has held a unique, undeniable influence over pop culture, charming and delighting generations with its electrifying tales of daring pilots, peaceful Jedi and very hairy Wookiees.  And now, after 8 episodes, the Star Wars saga as we know it is finally coming to an end with The Rise of Skywalker. Stepping back into the director’s seat for this instalment is J.J. Abrams, who so brilliantly revived the franchise as the rip-roaring space adventure that we all know and love with 2015’s The Force Awakens.

"Our heroes will have to face not only Kylo Ren and the First Order, but also the resurgence of an old, old enemy in the form of The Emperor..."

Not only is Abrams concluding the story he set up in 2015 as Rey and Kylo Ren’s journeys come to an end, but here he is also playing with saying goodbye to such iconic characters as R2-D2, Luke Skywalker (could he still be alive?) and even Princess Leia, who appears in the film using footage cut from The Force Awakens. Plot details are a mystery for now; but really, would we have it any other way? What we do know is that somewhere along the way, our heroes will have to face not only Kylo Ren and the First Order, but also the resurgence of an old, old enemy in the form of The Emperor (played by Carnoustie’s own Ian McDiarmid), who hasn’t been seen since the end of Return of the Jedi. It’s not just the final bow for some of our favourite characters either; this film also marks the wonderful John Williams’ final foray into the Star Wars universe, a composer whose incredible music has been just as instrumental in cementing the series’ enduring legacy as any of those timeless performances or incredible creature and costume designs. 

As we reach the end of another year, what could be a greater Christmas gift for young and old than the final (for now, at least) instalment in the Star Wars saga?
