Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in United States theaters on December 20, 2019. I thought the saga was over a couple of years ago, but of course, I quickly learned that this money magnet would not be laid to rest. Now that a new generation is glued to the beloved characters in Star Wars saga, the movies will inevitably continue. Why kill a good thing? Disney sure isn’t, and I am anticipating every release that will follow. However, we do know that this will be the end of the original Skywalker Saga. I can’t wait to see how the new Star Wars movies will unfold.
Bitter Sweet Ending
Growing up, I developed a fondness for each of the characters and when several of the original characters passed away I genuinely mourned their loss. There are about 92 original Star Wars actors who are gone but not forgotten. The three most recent who passed away are:
- May 2,
2019Peter Mayhew – Chewbacca
- December 27,
2016Carrie Fisher – Princess Leia
- August 22,
2016Michael Leader – Stormtrooper
Surprisingly, one of the cool additions to the new movies is that although, some of our most loved characters passed away like Carrie Fisher we still see a glimpse of them on screen. Technology is used to bridge clips from the past to the modern movies so we can continue to enjoy them.
