Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker | Background You Should Know Part 2
We return with the second part of the background check you should make before watching Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Releasing this Friday, November 20, 2020, if you have not watched any Star Wars movie then it is totally fine. We have you covered and we will provide you with the necessary information to get you going before the movie release. So without a further a due, let’s get into it right away!
(Be sure to read Part One First)
When you see Emperor Palpatine, aka Darth Sidious, you should know that he was not always evil. Darth Plagueis took him as his apprentice and taught him the ways of the Dark Side. He is the one who originally became evil and experimented with the Force to achieve immortality.
However, the Siths have Rule of Two which basically means a teacher and a student cannot co-exist and to fully become a dark lord, a student must execute their teacher or, well, die in the process. Hence, Darth Sidious killed Darth Plagueis.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – What to Expect?
George Lucas productions and J. J Abrams are so well secretive about their movies that we do not even have a single leak about the movie. All we can figure out is what we should get to see in the final, culminating movie that ends it all. I mean, this is not Game of Thrones that we are talking about now, right? So expect your questions answered.
First, we need more answers about the origins of the First Order. By this time, we are confident that you followed our advice and watched all the movies. After developing an idea of the movie, you too might question what the First Order is all about. Right? Hopefully, Episode IX will provide answers to this mystery.
Second, GQ Magazine reports that “a Skywalker” will bring an end to the everlasting feud between Jedis, Siths, Empire and Rebels. The conflict must end in some way or the other, and who better to provide an end than a Skywalker? It is told that Anakin is a child of the Force. Born without father, his mother claimed that she does not know how the child was conceived. This fulfilled the biggest Jedi-prophecy due to which the Jedi Order took Anakin under its wings. However, we all know how that turned out later. However, there is still much going on about Skywalker family and the new Star Wars movie title is proof of it!
Third, Is Rey and Kylo Ren going to form the much-needed balance in the universe and the Force?
What Are Clones?
Clones were made from the DNA of Jango Fett, one of the honored and famous bounty hunters in the bounty hunter Guild. His fighting style and techniques made him a great fighter. However, Jedi Mace Windu killed him in a battle for some reason. What? Do Jedis kill people too? Well, yeah. There is no rule that a Jedi cannot kill someone. However, they do exercise the rule that if someone is no longer a threat, then there is no need to hold a grudge or take revenge.
Anyways, Republic and then the Empire used his DNA to make a huge clone army by setting up some “clone-generation center”. Fun fact: Bobba Fett is Jango Fett’s son!
C3PO and R2-D2 BFFs Beyond The New Star Wars Movie
R2-D2 is an “Astromech” droid who served Anakin Skywalker. Whereas, C3PO is a protocol droid who serves all other lifestyle functions. Anakin used to rely heavily on Artoo-Deetoo in combat, missions, and other stuff. C3PO largely helped out Senator Padme Amadala in her diplomatic missions as it is fluent in several hundred alien languages. Human-like, C3PO generally worried about everything that was out of the orders given to a droid. It only wanted to follow rules and regulations and commands from its handlers. However, being with Anakin, R2-D2 learned that a few improvisions can sometimes lead to great benefits and so it would often pull C3PO with it on detours.
At the end of the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer, it looks as if the friendship of two droids are coming at an end. Having seen it all, the two are present in every movie episode, and even in Clone Wars animated series. From them, Rebels and the former Republic gained huge benefits in the respective war for justice. Now, it seems it is time for C3PO to go. A fitting way for a series to end, because let’s face it: Star Wars is incomplete without the duo in it together.
We hope that this information serves you well in your quest for the Episode IX which is coming out on December 20. May the Force be with you all!
