Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker follows General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and the surviving members of the resistance as they must face the First Order again. When they learn evil Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) did not die at the hands of Darth Vader, the rebels must race against the clock to find his whereabouts.

Meanwhile, Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) lead the Resistance fighters to try to put a stop to the First Order’s plans to form a new Empire. Upon the group’s return to the Resistance base, R2-D2 receives a signal from Rey. The Resistance follows Rey’s coordinates to Exegol, where she confronts Palpatine. He then demands she kill him and doing so would transfer his spirit into her body and together they would rule the galaxy.

After overpowering the Knights of Ren, Ben Solo (Adam Driver) joins Rey to fight Palpatine, but Palpatine uses his skills to drain the pair’s power and uses it to rejuvenate himself. With new strength, he attacks the Resistance fleet, led by Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), with Force lightning while also incapacitating Ben. Although weakened, Rey hears the voices of past Jedi, who lend her strength to rise up and fight back. Palpatine attacks Rey with his lightning, but Rey deflects it using the Skywalker light-sabers, killing him and herself in the process. Meanwhile, Ben uses his Force connection to revive Rey but at the cost of his own life. They kiss briefly before he dies.

The Resistance destroys Paplatine’s command ship, leaving the armada trapped over Exegol. As people across the galaxy rise up against the First Order, the Resistance returns to their base to celebrate. After the celebration, Rey visits Luke’s abandoned childhood home on Tatooine and buries the Skywalker light-sabers, having built her own. When asked her name, she replies Skywalker.
