The dead Jedi that appear in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker as Force Ghost Voices



The following Jedi are in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker as Force Ghost VOICES who speak to Rey: Anakin Skywalker, Luminara Unduli, Ahsoka Tano, Aayla Secura, Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Adi Gallia, Kanan Jarrus, Qui-Gon Jinn.

Ahsoka and Kanan are from Star Wars Rebels, the cartoon series which is by far one of the best Star Wars production.

All the voices are from the original actors that played these characters. Yes, Hayden Christensen voiced Anakin!!! And Obi-Wan's voice was provided by a combination of Ewan McGregor and Sir Alec Guinness.

The following is the Force Ghosts dialogue in the film Rise Of Skywalker.

Obi-Wan: These are your final steps Rey. Rise and take them.
Anakin: Rey.
Ahsoka: Rey.
Kanan: Rey.
Anakin: Bring back the balance Rey, as I did.
Ahsoka or Aayla: The light. Find the light, Rey.
(Unintelligible)
Qui-Gon: Every Jedi that ever lived, lives in you.
Anakin: The Force surrounds you, Rey.
(Unintelligible)
Mace: Feel the Force flowing through you Rey.
Anakin: Let it lift you.
Unknown: Rise Rey!
Qui-Gon: We stand behind you, Rey.
Old Obi-Wan: Rey.
Yoda: Rise in the Force, Rey.
Kanan: In the heart of a Jedi lies their strength.
Obi-Wan: Rise.
Qui-Gon: Rise.
Luke: Rey, the Force will be with you. Always.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker fighting with Phantom Menace for worst reviewed SW film



Just watched Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. Have so many bad/sad/angry things to say about it but mostly are spoilers so I guess that will have to wait till another few days. But in the meantime, a big congratulation to Jar Jar Abrams for making a Star Wars movie that is now fighting with Phantom Menace for the title of the worst reviewed Star Wars film. That's quite an accomplishment!

Some reviews.

Matt Goldberg from Collider gives the movie a D+: Star Wars isn’t just iconography or junk you liked from your childhood. It can be so much more than that, and it means so much more to countless people. The Rise of Skywalker renders the Skywalker Saga into something cheap, frail, and easily disposable.

Chris Evangelista from /Film gives it a 5 out of 10: There’s so much wasted potential here. As the story draws to its big, loud climax, and one fan-service moment after another arises, you begin to get the sense that Abrams is just checking off boxes and fulfilling a quota. There’s no spark; no joy; no life. If this truly is the end of the Skywalker Saga, what an ignoble end it is.

Darren Franich from EW gives it a C and calls it a Zombie: We need a new franchise designation for this stumbling, bloodless conglomeration of What Once Was. Rise of the Skywalker isn’t an ending, a sequel, a reboot, or a remix. It’s a zombie.

Can Rise Of Skywalker do it? Can it beat Phantom Menace as the worst reviewed Star Wars movie? Check out the Tomatometer for this exciting battle.
