“The Rise of Skywalker: Memorabilia without Memory, a Misunderstanding of Hope”

Jeannette Ng thinks about The Rise of Skywalker, The Last Jedi and “memorabilia without memory.” “The central plot of Rise concerns Rey’s parentage which was very satisfyingly resolved in The Last Jedi. They were no one in particular, not great heroes nor villains. Along with the rest of the film, this formed a central thesis of how the Force belongs to all of us and not any specific bloodline. That this isn’t a story about birthright. Larger fandom and critics, including myself, have written extensively about they found hope in this message.”
