"Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order."
The huge "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" twist explained.
"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is finally in theaters,
and whether you're on board for this outing or not,
there's no denying that it made a lot of choices.
Like a lot.
There are so many movies in this one movie,
and it's one of those choices
that has many fans losing their gall dang minds.
Now before we even go one second further,
we have to give a spoiler warning
for Star Wars: Episode IX
because we are going to spoil the ever-loving heck
out of that movie for you.
So if you haven't seen it yet, turn away now,
unless you have seen it
or have just given up on everything
and don't care anymore.
Either way, hope your day gets better,
and be sure to like and subscribe.
(intense music)
Alright you're clearly still here
which means that it's time to get into that twist.
Specifically Rey and Palpatine.
Now after it was established in The Last Jedi
that anyone could become a hero,
and that Rey was a nobody.
It was revealed that Rey is in fact a somebody.
Rey Palpatine to be precise.
Effectively retconning Episode VIII's message
from a certain point of view.
- A certain point of view?
- Now whether you were for or against this reveal,
it's obvious that this is a major twist
for the sequel trilogy,
and is going to recontextualize everything
we thought we knew about Rey,
up to this point.
- It's time to let old things die.
- But for now, what happened?
And was this twist actually something
that came out of nowhere?
While the Resistance is off fighting that ridiculously
large fleet of planet-killing star destroyers
above the Sith planet of Exogol,
Rey tracks down the Emperor
to the creepy stadium he apparently lives in.
Where he invites her to strike him down
so he and the rest of the dead Sith
may then live on inside of her
as the new Empress Palpatine of the Final Order.
Now while it appears she may have been tempted
by this offer, in actuality, she's waiting for some backup
from her resident swole boy, Ben Solo.
Who's now turned his back on both
the Knights of Ren and the Dark Side,
shortly after Rey force-healed him
after she wounded him with a lightsaber
during their duel on the wreckage of the second Death Star.
I know, a lot happens in this movie.
Now unfortunately, things don't go as well for these two
as old Palps drains their life force Voldemort style,
or maybe like Dementor style, either way,
some Harry Potter ass (beeping).
He drained their life force to repair his damaged old bod,
and then he just tosses Ben Swolo
off the side like a piece of garbage AKA him,
in Return of the Jedi.
But it's in this moment, when all seems lost,
that Rey gets a little encouragement
from the voices of Jedi past.
Anakin, Yoda, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Mace Windu,
Kanan, Ahsoka, the list goes on and on,
they all leave her spiritual voicemails.
And thus she's able to deflect
the Emperor's force lightning,
and incinerate his body
in a way that apparently an exploding Death Star
could not.
Now sadly, this process drains Rey
of the rest of her life force,
and all seems lost.
Until, our favorite wide boy, Ben Solo,
climbs out of that holo,
and is able to use force healing
to bring her back to life,
only for him to die
and fade away in the process.
I mean, look, that's just what happens
when you've never been kissed.
It just kills you instantly.
After all of this,
Rey heads back to the Lars homestead on Tatooine
to bury Luke and Leia's lightsabers.
Where she then reveals her new yellow lightsaber
made from her old staff.
Where did that kyber crystal come from?
I have so many questions.
It's so cool!
She's then confronted by an old woman,
who asks who she is.
With Luke an Leia's force ghost
looking down on her in the distance,
she answers Rey Skywalker.
Effectively forging a new family and destiny
despite her blood relation to Palpatine.
So, was this whole notion of Palpatine having children
and by extension grandkids,
something that's brand new?
Well, not really.
In fact if you go into the old Star Wars expanded universe
cannon before Disney deep sixed all of it.
It's heavily implied that old Palps
had a kid named Triclops.
Which, is just three Cyclopes stapled together.
He actually is a white haired mutant with three eyes,
so you're not that far off.
He had a son named Ken.
Or as we like to call him here on the show, Kenny Palps.
Now like Rey,
Kenny Palps also grew up without parental supervision.
Essentially living alone and unaware of his ancestry
outside the fact that both dark and light sides
were apart of his heritage.
Now the similarities between Rey and Kenny
pretty much end there.
Because Reys parents pretty much hit the road with her,
trying to hide her from her Grandpappy Palpatine.
Because they knew the Emperor
had plans for their daughter in the long run.
Now overall the new Rey/Palpatine dynamic
revealed in the Rise of Skywalker,
certainly puts a twist on what had been
previously established by the Last Jedi.
And this is either the best thing in the world
or the absolute worst,
depending on your certain point of view.
- A certain point of view?
- But what do you folks think?
Were you on board for this twist?
Would you have rather seen Kenny Palps
enter Star Wars cannon instead of Rey becoming a Palpatine?
And seriously, who had sex with the emperor?
Just raise your hand right now.
I'm not mad, I just need to know.
I'm going to ruin Christmas otherwise.
Let's discuss.
Thanks again to "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order"

who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66.

develop new powerful force abilities
and master the art of the iconic lightsaber.
All while staying one step ahead of the Empire
and it's deadly Inquisitors.
