Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a lot of movie. Are you ready?

Despite what some may think, Disney has been pretty clear this film is the end to the trilogy of trilogies which came to be known as the Skywalker Saga. There certainly won’t be any shortage of new stories in the galaxy for years to come—we’re seeing some right now with The Mandalorian—but this film is certainly an “end.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker officially opens Friday.
