9 months after it hit theaters, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker seems set to go down in historical past as a serious anticlimax. There have been nonetheless a few cool moments, one of the best being the all-too-brief flashback to Luke instructing Leia to turn into a Jedi quickly after Return of the Jedi, however rattling close to the whole lot else felt inconsequential and half-baked.
One facet that was significantly disappointing had been the much-hyped Knights of Ren. Teased by Disney and Lucasfilm since The Drive Awakens, we lastly acquired to see them throw down in opposition to Kylo Ren close to the finale of The Rise of Skywalker. Sadly, nevertheless, it proved to be an unmemorable battle that lasted about thirty seconds.

Luckily, these characters have been fleshed out a bit extra in materials exterior the flicks. The Rise of Kylo Ren comedian has proven them being seduced to the Darkish Aspect by Supreme Chief Snoke and his first days with the Knights earlier than taking them over.
