Realization
Watching this Disney film makes me notice that the titles are nonsense. Where do they get these titles from? In the first one the force does not awaken. mostly because it is inconsistent with the force. It is always there and never sleeps. In the next one we do not have a last jedi or the series would have ended. And here all Skywalkers are dead. Rey trying to fit herself is laughable of course.

Trivia

Theories suggesting that Mark Hamill would refuse to appear in this movie due to his initial disagreements with how Luke's story was handled by Rian Johnson in Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017), even though he was on contract for three appearances, were quickly refuted. Hamill repeatedly explained that he changed his mind once he saw the full story, and outright expressed excitement for this movie well ahead of the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017), and after the movie was released. The official casting announcement rendered this speculation completely moot, confirming he would return.

Goofs

Finn claims the second Battle of Endor was where the "last war ended". In actuality, in the canon expanded universe, the war went on for another year, culminating with the Battle of Jakku and the subsequent Imperial surrender. As Disney spearheaded their own expanded universe and undid all that had come before, it's odd they'd make this mistake. However, the Battle of Endor was effectively where the Empire was defeated by the Rebel Alliance, and the Emperor and Vader were both killed, thus closing the original trilogy. Further minor skirmishes with the remnants of the Empire in expanded universe spin-off materials don't count.
