The Star Wars Film With The Least Re-Watchability Has Somehow Returned To People's Minds

There's absolutely no shortage of "Star Wars" films anymore. The recent years' worth of efforts at Disney have seen to that, with not only a sequel trilogy of mainline movies releasing between 2015 to 2019, but spin-off flicks like "Solo" and "Rogue One" hitting screens as well. Of course, that abundance of content is also in addition to the original trilogy of movies, along with the prequel films.

As for whether every "Star Wars" movie is a good one, that's a question that fans are quite split on. Opinions on various eras of the franchise have historically been mixed (via MovieWeb), and there are certainly movies out there that fans will commonly look back on as far more high-quality and re-watchable than others, such as "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" or "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith." However, against all odds, conversation surrounding what many fans deem to be the least re-watchable movie in the series has fired up once again — if only for them to discuss how little re-watchability it truly has.

Fans aren't keen on re-watching The Rise of Skywalker

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" may have owned the box office, but public opinion on the film is far less strong. In a thread on the r/StarWars subreddit, u/NearlyHeadless-Brick asked fans how many times they had watched the final film in Disney's sequel trilogy since it debuted in 2019. The answers were brutal.

As it turns out, many fans have only seen "The Rise of Skywalker" once and have felt no desire to re-watch it since. "I saw it in the theater and never bothered watching it again," u/VolitarPrime commented. Other fans mirrored that sentiment, with some even claiming they regretted seeing it the first time. "Watched through the latest trilogy once and never again," u/Caturix6 commented. "I'll never get that time back."

Several fans discussed why the movie lacks any level of re-watchability, deeming its narrative boring and rote. "There's absolutely no creativity at play in the storyline at all," u/Groppstopper wrote. "It's as if the entire writers room didn't have a single person who was passionate about the 'Star Wars' universe... they all just checked the Original Trilogy boxes and called it a day."

Of course, "The Rise of Skywalker" is still a relatively recent release, so it's possible that the popular discourse surrounding the movie could shift with time. However, it's not looking like many "Star Wars" fans will be putting the movie in their re-watch rotation for the time being.
