While we don’t need to get rid of anything old, there is always room for the new, especially in discovering new music and sounds.

Abrams and Rian Johnson, etc. Thankfully, this article will not dwell on those things. Instead I am going to center my attention on the focal point of this trilogy—Rey Skywalker. While I have great issues with how Rey’s family was handled, I find her overall arc to be fascinating, especially when I consider the elements of it that actually work.
From the acting to the animation, Vox Machina builds into a nerve wracking climactic finish.
