42 years of the Skywalker saga is coming to an end. I have been a fan since the very beginning, but there is no sadness, I have seen what Disney is capable of doing with the continuation of the Star Wars universe, so I know we will be taken care of with more great movies, shows, and characters in the years to come!
I am a blogger and an influencer. I should not read the reviews of the more professional journalists that have picked through this movie with a fine toothed comb. I loved it. I thought it tied everything up as promised. I thought all of the characters did a great job, and there were some excellent surprises within. Watch the movie break the billion dollar mark in a few weeks, it is the blockbuster we have been promised.
Emperor Palpatine is back. Anything is possible with the Sith! This has been public info, so no spoilers here. With Rey as a full fledged Jedi, you have to go to the movie to see how this all comes together! We laughed, we cried, we oohed and we ahhd. C3PO was funnier then ever, and BB8 got a sidekick. There were sad moments and happy moments, and all worked!

I thought the movie delivered as promised, it tied up all the movies and closed out the story we first saw 42 years ago. There were some surprise visitors which really made for some great moments, and I admit to being teary eyed throughout. After all, I grew up with these movies, and then got to seen them all again through the eyes of my child, like many of my generation!
And I met some of the stars of the movie!
