Colin Trevorrow's Alleged Star Wars Episode IX Ending Features Some Familiar Themes

The worst thing about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker not being universally beloved is it makes people ask “What if?” What if other decisions had been made? Could the movie have been improved? These kinds of questions feel natural with this movie in particular because Colin Trevorrow, the original director and co-writer, left the project years before it was released.

In the days since the...
