Did Anyone Really Expect The Rise of Skywalker to Have a Post-Credit Scene?

Did Anyone Really Expect The Rise of Skywalker to Have a Post-Credit Scene?

THE RISE OF SKYWALKERRISE OF SKYWALKERSKYWALKER

With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker finally making its way into theaters this weekend, fans will finally have the chance to see how this trilogy sequel wraps up. What will happen with Rey? Can Kylo be redeemed? And, perhaps most importantly, is there a post-credit scene? We're here to help answer that last one for those who are wondering if they may need to sit through the end-credits after the movie wraps up.

For those who might be concerned about spoilers, this post will not dig into any specifics about the movie itself. Unless one considers the answer to this question a spoiler, this is a safe place. So, does Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker contain a post-credit scene? No. The only reason fans need to stick around after the final scene rolls is if they wish to hear some of John Williams' iconic score played over the credits. Or if they want to kill some time while the crowded theater clears out. Beyond that, the end of the movie really is the end. And why wouldn't it be? There has never been a Star Wars Post-Credit scene attached to any of the previous movies.

Over the last decade or so, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made post-credit scenes standard practice for major blockbuster franchises. It's not just limited to comic book movies anymore, as Jurassic World and Jumanji, amongst others, have adopted the gimmick. So it's not unreasonable for fans to wonder if Star Wars would do the same, especially since Lucasfilm and Marvel are both owned by Disney. But Star Wars has largely stuck to tradition under the Disney era and haven't gone the post-credit scene route. They didn't change things up with Episode IX.

From the earliest days of this movie's production, director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm billed it as the end of the Skywalker saga. This is the end of the journey that George Lucas started back in 1977 with the original Star Wars. It's the conclusion of a nine-movie saga that has spanned more than four decades. In that way, it would feel a little wrong to have anything after or during the credits. It's not like the MCU where they are teasing something for the future. This is as close to a conclusion as we're likely to get in modern, franchise-obsessed Hollywood.

That's not to say Star Wars is going to end. Not at all. Outside of Disney+ shows like The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm is also developing future movies that will take place outside of the Skywalker saga. It hasn't yet been revealed what those projects will look like, or who will be behind them since Game of Thrones duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recently parted ways with their proposed trilogy, but a galaxy far, far away will live on. Just don't expect that future to be teased during the credits of this particular adventure. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arrives in theaters this weekend from Disney.
