The Star Wars sequel saga currently consists of 11 movies, some series, novels, and comics. So it is obvious that there must be some plot holes that not even the legend Mark Hamill can explain. Millions of people worldwide love the Star Wars sequel saga, and they probably won’t stop when they learn about the large script holes it contains.
1. Darth Vader, C-3PO and R2-D2
George Lucas just deliberately created his plot hole with the prequels. He suddenly turned C-3PO and R2-D2 into Anakin’s friends’. When Darth Vader encounters his droid buddies in The Empire Strikes Back, he should recognize them after all those wild adventures they had in the past. Nothing shows that Vader still recognizes his old friends. Lucas only wrote the prequels after the original trilogy, and that explains everything. Still, it remains a strange situation and a somewhat bizarre choice when you know very well what happens in the original trilogy. This plot hole also applies to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Uncle Owen, who do not recognize R2 and Threepio, respectively.
2. Luke isn’t hiding
Leia got a much better ‘hiding place’ than Luke. She ended up with the Organa royals on Alderaan. Twin brother Luke was not so lucky. It was just shamelessly dropped in the desert. It’s a wonder Darth Vader hadn’t found it before. And that was the goal, Obi-Wan? Hide them as best you can so that Vader doesn’t see them and lures them to the Dark Side.
3. Palpatine’s vague return
The most significant moment in The Rise of Skywalker: Palpatine‘s mysterious return. Even basic questions such as how, what, where, and why are not answered. Didn’t the Emperor die in Return of the Jedi? His previously heard excuse – “the Dark side of the force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural,” And we haven’t even mentioned his ‘Final Order’ yet. How he could build a mega-fleet all those years without even one of the Resistance people realizing it is even more incredible.
4. Luke and Leia’s relationship with Rey
In The Rise of Skywalker, Luke’s Force Ghost admits that he and Leia already secretly knew that Rey is Palpatine’s granddaughter. Only after many grunts, fits and starts does he give in, and the Jedi training starts. If Luke knew who Rey was then, as TROS leads us to believe, he would never have tried to send her away. Then he sent her right into the hands of the First Order who could make Rey. He knew she is a Palpatine – a weapon of mass destruction.
5. The Force-Time
Kylo Ren and Rey didn’t communicate using the Force in a mystical version of a video call. They can speak to each other after connecting mentally and feel the other’s surroundings once they’re linked. They can even touch each other and pull items off one another’s bodies as the Force allows a sort of portal between these two healthy users. Throughout the film, Kylo can sense her near him. So her sneaking around his chambers undetected is pretty convenient as he has a connection to the Darth Vader statue, which should have alerted him.
