#Titles to Binge After Seeing Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of a celestial soap opera 42 years in the making. Saying goodbye to the force-sensitive first family of the Star Wars franchise will undoubtedly be bittersweet, but it doesn’t mean saying goodbye to the Star Wars universe.
