Star Wars – Journey to The Rise of Skywalker | The Skywalker Saga Retrospective

For over a thousand generations, the Jedi knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the old Republic Before the dark times Before the Empire I have a bad feeling about this Invasion We must continue to rely on negotiation There is something else behind all this, Your Highness Begin landing your troops A droid army is about to attack the Naboo We must warn them I will not condone a course of action that will lead us to war This is my apprentice Darth Maul At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi At last we will have revenge You have been well-trained, my young apprentice They will be no match for you You’re a Jedi knight, aren’t you? How did you end up out here in the outer rim? We’re on our way to Coruscant, the central system in the Republic on a very important mission Our ship was damaged, and we’re stranded here until we can repair it I can help There’s something about this boy Over 20,000 Even Master Yoda doesn’t have a Midi-chlorian count that high No Jedi has Who was his father? There was no father I can’t explain what happened Can you help him? I don’t know These junk dealers must have a weakness of some kind Gambling There is no other way Podracing I’m the only human who can do it Remember, concentrate on the moment Feel, don’t think Use your instincts I will May the Force be with you Are you sure about this? Trusting our fate to a boy we hardly know? He can help you Our meeting was not a coincidence Nothing happens by accident He was meant to help you And there goes Skywalker! Go, Ani, go! He will be hard-pressed to catch up with the leaders Our people are dying, Senator Our best choice would be to push for the election If this body is not capable of action I suggest new leadership is needed Now they will elect a new chancellor one who will not let our tragedy continue You’re no longer a slave Is he to become a Jedi? Anakin! Drop! Qui-Gon’s in trouble He was trained in the Jedi arts My only conclusion can be that it was a Sith lord More to say have you? I have encountered a vergence in the Force You refer to the prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the Force Trained as a Jedi you request for him, hmm? Finding him was the will of the Force The boy is dangerous They all sense it Fear is the path to the dark side Will I ever see you again? Fear leads to anger Anger leads to hate Hate leads to suffering No! He is the chosen one He will bring balance Be brave and don’t look back Don’t look back The council have granted me permission to train you You will be a Jedi, I promise I will not let this Republic that has stood for a thousand years be split in two Do you have any idea who was behind this attack? The dark side clouds everything May I suggest the senator be placed under the protection of your graces? You’re sweating I haven’t seen her in ten years, Master Ani? My goodness, you’ve grown Anakin, escort the senator back to her home planet of Naboo She’ll be safer there I do hope he doesn’t try anything foolish I’d be more concerned about her doing something than him Track down this bounty hunter you must, Obi-Wan I’m looking for a planetary system called Kamino Master Jedi The prime minister is expecting you This army is for the Republic The army? Magnificent, aren’t they? They are using a bounty hunter named Jango Fett to create a clone army They’ll do their job well I’ll guarantee that Just being around her again is intoxicating Must be difficult, having sworn your life to the Jedi not being able to do the things you like Or be with the people that I love Are you allowed to love? I thought that was forbidden for a Jedi No Anakin. Help me I don’t sleep well anymore She is in pain I have to help her My son Why couldn’t I save her? Stay with me, Mom I know I could have Everything You’re not all-powerful Anakin! Well, I should be! Someday I will be I will be the most powerful Jedi ever! I will even learn to stop people from dying This is a crisis The senate must vote the chancellor emergency powers What if I told you that the Republic was now under the control of the dark lord of the Sith? I will create a grand army of the Republic to counter the increasing threats of the separatists You must join me, Obi-Wan and together we will destroy the Sith! From the moment I met you

all those years ago not a day has gone by when I haven’t thought of you I’ve been dying a little bit each day since you came back into my life Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin They betray you You’ve made a commitment to the Jedi order, a commitment not easily broken We could keep it a secret We’d be living a lie and that it would destroy our lives I wasn’t strong enough to save you, Mom But I promise I won’t fail again The shroud of the dark side has fallen Begun the Clone War has I sense great fear in you, Skywalker The end of the war is near Soon I will have a new apprentice They want me to spy on the chancellor? That’s treason We are at war, Anakin It’s very dangerous, putting them together I don’t think the boy can handle it I know there are things about the Force that they’re not telling me They don’t trust you, Anakin I’m not the Jedi I should be I want more Something wonderful has happened Ani, I’m pregnant We’re not gonna worry about anything right now This is the happiest moment of my life I know what’s been troubling you It was a dream You die in childbirth Learn to know the dark side of the Force I won’t lose you the way I lost my mother If the Jedi destroy me, any chance of saving her will be lost Anakin, I told you it would come to this The Jedi are taking over I am going to end this once and for all He must live You’re fulfilling your destiny, Anakin No! Every single Jedi is now an enemy of the Republic What have I done? Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy! And we shall have peace Twisted by the dark side young Skywalker has become He is like my brother I cannot do it The Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire! The Jedi turned against me Don’t you turn against me Anakin, you’re breaking my heart You were the chosen one! Stop now. Come back It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the Force! Obi-Wan, there’s good in him I know. I know there’s still Lord Vader Yes, Master Rise Hidden, safe the children must be kept I will take the child and watch over him Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi You are my only hope Who is she? She’s beautiful You know, I think that R2 unit we bought might have been stolen What makes you think that? Well, I stumbled across a recording while I was cleaning him He says he belongs to someone called Obi-Wan Kenobi Now, that’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time Luke’s just not a farmer, Owen He has too much of his father in him I was once a Jedi knight, the same as your father How did my father die? A young Jedi named Darth Vader He betrayed and murdered your father I want to come with you to Alderaan I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father Han Solo. I’m captain of the Millennium Falcon What a piece of junk! You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs What’s going on? Our position’s correct, except no Alderaan What do you mean? Where is it? Destroyed by the Empire This station is now the ultimate power in the universe That’s no moon It’s a space station It’s too big to be a space station Princess? Where? Where is she? Luke! We’re gonna have company! I’m Luke Skywalker. I’m here to rescue you I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan What the hell are you doing? Somebody has to save our skins If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine Hang on tight, R2. You’ve got to come back Lock S-foils in attack position Use the Force, Luke The Force? The Force is what gives a Jedi his power It’s an energy field created by all living things It surrounds us, penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together The Force is strong with this one Luke, you switched off your targeting computer! What’s wrong? Nothing I’m all right I got him! Great, kid! Don’t get cocky Yahoo! You’re all clear, kid! Now let’s blow this thing and go home! Great shot, kid! That was one in a million!

Hey! Hey! I knew you’d come back. I just knew it Well, I wasn’t going to let you get all the credit and take all the reward Hey, I knew there was more to you than money The Force will be with you always An imperial probe droid The rebels are there We’d better start the evacuation There is a great disturbance in the Force Luke! You will go to the Dagobah system There you will learn from Yoda The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi This bucket of bolts will never get past that blockade This baby’s got a few surprises left in her, sweetheart We’re not gonna regroup with the others We’re going to the Dagobah system I don’t know how we’re gonna get out of this one What are you doing? You’re not actually going into an asteroid field? Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720-to-1 Never tell me the odds I know! I know! Just hang on You do have your moments Not many of them, but you do have them What did you have in mind for your next move? This is interesting Lando How you doin’, you old pirate? I’m looking for a great warrior Oh, great warrior Wars not make one great Yoda The boy has no patience Much anger in him like his father I won’t fail you A Jedi’s strength flows from the Force But beware of the dark side Oh, no We’ll never get it out now So certain are you I can’t It’s too big Size matters not For my ally is the Force And a powerful ally it is Life creates it Its energy surrounds us and binds us Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter You must feel the Force around you I don’t believe it That is why you fail I can’t keep the vision out of my head They’re my friends. I’ve got to help them You must not go But Han and Leia will die if I don’t I love you I know If you choose to face Vader, you will do it alone The Force is with you, young Skywalker But you are not a Jedi yet I’ll never join you! Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father I am your father No! Ben Why didn’t you tell me? That boy is our last hope No, there is another Leia Luke Son, come with me Princess, we’ll find Han I promise Take care, you two May the Force be with you Who are you? Someone who loves you We have powerful friends You’re going to regret this Greetings, Exalted One I am Luke Skywalker A Jedi knight? You can either profit by this or be destroyed It’s your choice but I warn you not to underestimate my powers Hey, Luke, thanks for coming after me Now I owe you one I’ll meet you back at the fleet I’ve come back to complete the training No more training do you require Then I am a Jedi Not yet One thing remains You cannot escape your destiny The Death Star will be completed on the schedule The emperor’s made a critical error and the time for our attack has come The shield must be deactivated if any attack is to be attempted Soon the rebellion will be crushed and young Skywalker will be one of us Admiral, we’re in position All fighters accounted for His compassion for you will be his undoing Your overconfidence is your weakness Your faith in your friends is yours From here, you will witness the final destruction of the Alliance and the end of your insignificant rebellion Break off the attack! The shield is still up It’s a trap! Take your weapon Strike me down with all of your hatred! Luke, tell me. What’s troubling you? Give yourself to the dark side Vader He’s my father But why must you confront him? Because there is good in him. I’ve felt it Your thoughts betray you, father I can save him. I can turn him back to the good side Your thoughts betray you Your feelings for them are strong especially for sister It’s you, Leia If I don’t make it back, you’re the only hope for the Alliance Your feelings have now betrayed her, too Search your feelings, Father You can’t do this I feel the conflict within you

Let go of your hate Use your aggressive feelings, boy Let the hate flow through you You underestimate the power of the dark side If you will not turn then perhaps she will Never! Your hate has made you powerful Now, fulfill your destiny and take your father’s place at my side Never I’ll never turn to the dark side If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed Father, please! You’ve failed, Your Highness I am a Jedi like my father before me Father I’ll not leave you here I’ve got to save you You already have, Luke Leia, do you remember your mother your real mother? Just a little bit She died when I was very young Leia She was very beautiful Kind but sad Luke Oh, Luke Luke You were right You were right about me Tell your sister you were right Where’d you come from? Classified, really? Yup Me too Big secret I know all about waiting For my family They’ll be back, one day This will begin to make things right This is a rescue I’m helping you escape Why are you helping me? Because it’s the right thing to do We’re gonna do this Yeah? I’m Poe, Poe Dameron Good to meet you, Poe Good to meet you too, Finn! Where’re we going? We’re going back to Jakku The droid has a map that leads straight to Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker? I thought he was a myth Follow me I can do this! I don’t know your name Finn Nice shot! I’m getting pretty good at this What’s yours? Get ready! Are we really doing this? I’m Rey Whoa! Chewie We’re home This is the “Millennium Falcon”? You are Han Solo? I used to be The Jedi were real? It’s true All of it Ever since Luke disappeared people have been looking for him He was training a new generation of Jedi One boy, an apprentice, turned against him, destroyed it all Every time you look me, you’re reminded of him Do you think I want to forget him? I want him back No! There has been an awakening Come back! Have you felt it? There’s still light in him, I know it Show me again The power of the darkness Grandfather And I will finish what you started Today You don’t know the First Order like I do All remaining systems will bow to the First Order! We all need to run and will remember this as the last day of the Republic! The First Order charging their weapon again, now Our system is the next target Alright, let’s light it up! Ben! Han Solo You’re so lonely Your son is gone He was weak and foolish like his father, so I destroyed him You are afraid I’m being torn apart I want to be free of this pain that you will never be as strong as Darth Vader! No! Traitor! The belonging you seek is not behind you,

it is ahead Prepare to fire Hit the target hard! Give it everything you got! You need a teacher! Close your eyes I can show you the ways of the force! Feel it The Force The light It will guide you Rey May the Force be with you Master Skywalker? I’m from the Resistance Your sister Leia sent me We need your help You’ve seen this place You’ve seen this island Why are you here? Something inside me has always been there Then now it’s awake And I’m afraid And I need help I will teach you the ways of the Jedi and why they need to end For many years, there was balance and then I saw Ben Leia trusted me with her son I failed Because I was Luke Skywalker A legend What happened? I saw darkness Snoke had already turned his heart And it was beyond what I ever imagined He would bring destruction, and pain, and death, and the end of everything I love because of what he will become And for the briefest moment of pure instinct I thought I could stop it It passed like a fleeting shadow And I was left with shame And the last thing I saw were the eyes of a frightened boy whose master had failed him Ben, no! The mighty Kylo Ren You have too much of your father’s heart in you You were unbalanced Bested by a girl who had never held a lightsaber! You failed! You’re just a child in a mask The galaxy may need a legend I need someone to show me my place in all this We have them tied on the end of a string Proximity alert! They tracked us through lightspeed They won’t last long burning fuel like this It’s just a matter of time Tell us that we have a plan! That there is hope! Why is the Force connecting us? You and I Darkness rises and light to meet it Your parents threw you like garbage But you can’t stop needing them It is your greatest weakness Let the past die It’s the only way to become what you’re meant to be Don’t do this, Ben Please don’t go this way You have no place in this story You’re nothing But not to me Fulfill your destiny! We have allies People believe in Leia Get all our forces down to that Resistance base Let’s finish this Luke Did you come back to say you forgive me? To save my soul? We are the spark that will li ght the fire that will burn the First Order down Skywalker’s doing this so we can survive No, no, no, no, no No! The Resistance is dead The war is over And when I kill you I will have killed the last Jedi Every word of what you just said was wrong The Rebellion is reborn today The war is just beginning And I will not be the last Jedi I’ll destroy her and you and all of it No Pass on what you have learned Leia, I’m sorry Strength, mastery But weakness, folly, failure, also I failed you, Ben I’m sorry I know I’m just glad you’re here at the end Strike me down in anger and I’ll always be with you Just like your father I held out hope for so long But I know my son is gone No one’s ever really gone How do we build a Rebellion from this? We have everything we need Confronting fear

It’s the destiny of a Jedi Your destiny We’ve passed on all we know A thousand generations live in you now But this is your fight The Force is strong in my family My father has it I have it My sister has it You have that power, too We’ll always be with you Long have I waited, and now your coming together is your undoing Your journey nears its end The force will be with you Always
