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 for battle with the First Order.
After the text crawl at the beginning of the movie, the camera pans downward. This is the 7th of the 8 movies to do this. Only Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) does not pan down, but rather pans upwards.
Young Skywalker. Missed you, I have...
Princess Leia is so powerful with the force that she can fly through space like Superman, yet when the rebels are trapped they must rely on Rey's ability to remove the rocks even though Leia is with them. Clarification: While The Empire Strikes Back established that the weight of the object being moved is irrelevant to use of the Force, it has also established that the perceived weight of objects creates a psychological barrier to anyone untrained in use of the Force. The number of objects and the ability to see an object does have an impact on the ease with which the Force can be used to move things. Moving one object one direction in a weightless, frictionless environment is a relatively rudimentary use of the Force, while simultaneously controlling the movement of several dozen multi-ton objects, some of which aren't visible to the force-user in question is drastically more difficult. Also, one instance instinctive use of the Force under extreme physical duress is not the same as continuous, willful use of the Force.
The stars that form the backdrop for the end credits are exactly the same stars as the stars from the backdrop for the end credits of Rogue One
