REVEALED: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was written by Reddit user u/StarWarsRox_69

In a shocking revelation, new leaks from Disney reveal that Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker was actually written in its entirety by u/StarWarsRox_69, a user of social media site Reddit and not an established screenwriter.

The move apparently stems from Disney’s belief that they had to course-correct following the reception to Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi; the highest grossing film of 2017 which received rave critical reviews and an ‘A’ Cinemascore.

REPORT: PEOPLE STILL BITCHING ABOUT THE LAST JEDI

The Rise of Skywalker is the first film that u/StarWarsRox_69 has written, but he has been credited with several long-form reddit posts and comments, freely available through reddit’s comment history feature, including:

  • The Last Jedi RUINED my CHILDHOOD and shat on my Grandmother’s GRAVE!!!! (posted to r/StarWars)
  • I really think it would be better if Iron Man was Thanos’ son (r/MarvelStudios)
  • Anyone got the name of that video where the son hypnotises his step-mom into sex??? (r/TipOfMyPenis)

Speaking today, Lucasfilm top-dog Kathleen Kennedy says, “u/StarWarsRox_69 did a great job on this film, he really understands what Star Wars fans want; ham-fisted fan service and vague destiny nonsense”
