This is the spoiler filled review of the movie, where I talk about what happened in the movie, as well as what that means for Episode IX.
“Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.”
“Thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy faces a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren and the First Order. When a defector named Finn crash-lands on a desert planet, he meets Rey, a tough scavenger whose droid contains a top-secret map. Together, the young duo joins forces with Han Solo to make sure the Resistance receives the intelligence concerning the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker, the last of the Jedi Knights.”
“Our heroes on a mission to free Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt. But the ultimate battle is between father and son, as Luke Skywalker faces Darth Vader one last time in the presence of the Emperor — a powerful Sith Lord who hopes to lure the young Jedi to the dark side and crush the Rebellion once and for all.”
“The spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker in a vision, with instructions to seek out Yoda — a Jedi master who will complete his training. Meanwhile, Darth Vader, obsessed with finding Skywalker, leads a relentless assault on the Rebels and pursues the young Jedi’s friends, who flee to Cloud City in search of sanctuary from the Empire. It all leads to a deadly confrontation that will change our heroes forever.”
“After discovering a hidden message from Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker is catapulted into an unforgettable adventure. Along with Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as rogue smuggler Han Solo and his co-pilot Chewbacca, Luke sets out to rescue the princess, destroy the Empire’s ultimate weapon, and become a Jedi.”

This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.”
