How can one tell The Rise of Skywalker was co-written by Chris Terrio, the co-writer of one of the most despised superhero movies ever made, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice? Easy. Both films have the chance of being something epic but devolve into horribly-paced, hugely incomprehensible, hodgepodges of interesting action sequences and cool characters bogged down by ridiculous storytelling. And sprinkled throughout both of these films are plot threads acting as insurance policies just in case if the movie bombs it will still entice moviemakers to make spinoffs presented in the film.

I found Zorii to be immediately rather interesting, mainly because she has such a nice outfit, and her dynamic with Poe was instantly infectious. I, for one, would love to know more about them and their escapades as spice runners before the days of the New Republic.
Oscar Isaac and Keri Russel may not return to reprise their roles but find younger actors to portray a young Poe and Zorii and we could get a riveting Disney+ series that would surely please the masses and provide even more insight into our knowledge of Poe Dameron.
