    The Force has brought us together, all of us. Life creates it, makes it grow, its energy surrounds us, and binds us. We will continue to learn more about the Force's power in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.







    J.J. Abrams is taking more risks this time around, and off the climax of The Last Jedi, in which Luke Skywalker did something more powerful than any Jedi we've seen, we are in store for other never before seen powers of the Force in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga. The writer/director's conversation with Vanity Fair's Anthony Breznican continues, this time focusing on the mystical power that binds the galaxy together.

    Abrams isn't just putting a new coat of wax on the old car. While the movie will be full of the old tricks that hearken back to Alec Guinness' Obi-Wan Kenobi duping weak-minded stormtroopers, we'll continue to be introduced to new aspects of the Force.

    J.J. Abrams is masterful at commanding the conversation. What I mean by that is, he has no issue going to the source and pointing out the obvious when necessary. He is completely and fully conscious of the fact that there will be people who hate the choices he made, and states that they are completely right in feeling how they feel. It's a weird but effective way to diffuse hostility. If you tell an antagonist they're right, it's disarming in a way, without invalidating their opinion.

    Just as strange as it was for audiences to accept seeing a green puppet levitate a starfighter in 1980, us fans today had to accept seeing Luke Skywalker manifest himself across the galaxy to fool his nephew. It's all the same, but viewed through different lenses. The bottom line is, Abrams wants to ride the balance of concluding a story, while allowing The Rise of Skywalker to stand on its own feet and offer us something organic. Though Abrams stops short of saying it's in an effort to set up future storytelling.

    Whatever the reason you are going to see The Rise of Skywalker: to simply see how it ends, to see some familiar faces one more time, to learn something new, or even to justify pre-determined disdain, the movie is almost here as it unleashes its new Force powers in US theaters on December 19.

    Not surprised. Each Saga film has added something new to the force.

    I think it's unfair to roast JJ Abrams like this, peoploids. While he's certainly no Rian Johnson, Abrams is very good at flash & tension, and also at finding loaded and poignant character moments. Let's be nice :)

    My gut reaction is always to be against the idea of force "powers", but I've liked some of the newer stuff we've seen so far- Luke's "skywalking", Kylo stopping a blaster bolt with his hand, etc.

    I guess, in my opinion, I just prefer to think of these innovations as creative ways of using the flow of the force, rather than force "powers".

    And good lord, does this really have to become a thread trashing the director? Just watch the dang movie.

    LOL I can't believe they gave the keys to star wars to this unoriginal dweeb. And a lot of folks on here ate it up.
