Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) gets a pivotal role, as he works with Rey (Daisy Ridley) to realize the title, Meanwhile, the Resistance is in a deadly encounter with the First Order (headed by Adam Driver, who once again shows the depth of his abilities). The narrative jumps among several related plots, alternating fights and battles with moments of emotional drama. There are enough interesting effects and cute new creatures for the series to maintain its place as an innovator. Writer/director Rian Johnson has continued the legacy of compelling storytelling that keeps the films in our cultural spotlight. Those outside the fan base may be entertained, but those who love the Star Wars universe will find plenty to enjoy and cherish.
