This is the second Star Wars film in which Darth Vader is seen in his meditation chamber. The other film is The Empire Strikes Back in which his scarred head is visible, but this time his full damaged body is seen. The chamber is hyperbaric, meaning that the air inside is regulated at a specific pressure allowing Vader to sit inside without his helmet and survive. See more »
During the space battle over Scarif, in one shot of Gold Leader's Y-Wing cockpit, the edge of the Death Star's equatorial trench can be seen through the back window of the cockpit behind him. This is reused footage from the rebel attack on the Death Star from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. See more »
The problem with this film is that it was clearly made because Disney bought the rights to this, and are trying to squeeze every dollar out of it. This plot is so incoherent and depends way too much on it being a Star Wars film to be good. I could guarantee you that if this film didn't have the Star Wars brand slapped on it, it would not have as good rankings. It's fine, I enjoyed it, but every review above a 7 I can guarantee you is a Star Wars fan who is excited that a new film is out. The plot is thin, the entire final battle included so many complications solely to make the plot longer, the use of the force was extremely inconsistent, and the decisions of the characters was illogical. It's very weak
