After recently watching The Force Awakens I began to clearly wonder, “How will The Rise of Skywalker begin?”
You see, as a Star Wars fan, one of my favorite things to see is the beginning of a new Star Wars movie. So, as I watched The Force Awakens, I realized that I may have discovered how The Rise of Skywalker may (or at least should) begin.
At the beginning of The Force Awakens, the first thing that is blatantly shown is the First Order and Kylo Ren as they singlehandedly destroy a small village on Jakku in search of the map which would then help them find Luke Skywalker.
In an instant, like in A New Hope, we learn who the villains are and how deadly they can be.
In the teaser for The Rise of Skywalker, we see Kylo Ren attacking someone in a red forest and stormtroopers surrounding him. They are also fighting whatever enemy Kylo is facing. It’s been a year after the events of The Last Jedi and what better way to bring us back into the fray than by reminding us of the First Order and their might?
In the way that A New Hope and Return of the Jedi began with Darth Vader, The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker should start with Kylo Ren.
It’ll be an exhilarating jolt to the senses and an instant reminder of why we love Star Wars so much.
What do you think? Should The Rise of Skywalker begin with Kylo Ren and the First Order? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day. May the Force be with you.
