In anticipation for Star Wars, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, I began watching the entire Star Wars Saga. In addition, I have been reading the novels and graphic novels.

Then it will be time for the grand finale, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I'll be going to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge from December 12th through 15th. I'll be reading Galaxy's Edge, Black Spire, and A Crash of Fate to learn a bit about the history of Black Spire Outpost.
I am able to make some use of my spare time to do all of this before December 20th.
Yeah, Star Wars is my favorite saga.
A grand and epic story spanning three distinct eras, great characters, unique settings, and of course the music of Maestro John Williams.
