Rey defeats Palpatine in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

Throughout The Rise of Skywalker, Rey tried to communicate with the Jedis, asking them to “be with her” as she trained to fight the First Order. After she is struck down by the Emperor, she starts to hear the voices of the Jedis of the past. 

Turns out, Rey was not alone in her fight against the sith. She is all the Jedi. In some of the final moments from this film, Rey finds the strength to continue fighting with the support of her master, Luke Skywalker, as well as other Jedis from the Star Wars film franchise.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

As one of the best-known Jedis, Obi-Wan Kenobi offered support to both Luke Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker. Now, he offered that same guidance to Rey as she faced the sith lord.

“There are your final steps, Rey,” he said. “Rise and take them.”

Anakin Skywalker 

In “killing” Palpatine the first time, Anakin brought balance to the force. It was Rey’s time now. When Rey hears this Jedi’s voice during The Rise of Skywalker, he encouraged her to rise and bring back the balance.

“Rey,” Anakin Skywalker called to her. “Bring back the balance, Rey, as I did.”

Luminara Unduli and Aayla Secura

As characters from the prequel trilogy, Luminara and Aayla fought alongside Anakin, Obi-Wan, and the other Jedis. That is, until Order 66 was carried out. Luminara Unduli called out to Rey, along with her fellow Jedi.

“In the night, find the light, Rey,” Aayla said. 

Mace Windu and Yoda

They’re two Jedi masters. Mace Windu, who appeared in the prequel trilogy, complete with his purple lightsaber. Yoda had a cameo in almost every movie of the Skywalker Saga, including his voice appearing in The Rise of Skywalker.

“You’re not alone, Rey,” Mace Windu said. Yoda added, “Alone, never have you been.”

Qui-Gon Jinn

As Obi-Wan’s master, Qui-Gon Jinn offered support to many young Jedis in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Although he was killed at the hands of Darth Maul, his voice returned to give Rey encouragement.

“Every Jedi who ever lived lives in you,” Qui-Gon Jinn said.

Ahsoka Tano

She appeared in animated series’ like The Clone Wars. It wasn’t until the Disney+ series The Mandalorian that fans first saw the live-action version of the powerful and strong Ahsoka Tano, who was formerly Anakin’s padawan.

“The force surrounds you, Rey,” Anakin said. Aayla added, “Let it guide you.” 

“As it guided us,” Ahsoka Tano said.

Adi Gallia and Kanan

A respected member of the Jedi High Council, Adi Gallia from the prequel trilogy, calls out to Rey, as does Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels, a Jedi Knight who survived Order 66.

“Rise, Rey,” Adi Gallia said, sparking other Jedis to echo “rise.”

“In the heart of a Jedi lies her strength,” Kanan said.

Luke Skywalker

This Jedi was Rey’s teacher and master before he died. It was only fitting that this Skywalker was the last voice that she heard. 

“Rey, the force will be with you, always,” Luke Skywalker said.
