** ''Film/TheLastJedi'' ends with a slave child (dubbed [[FanNickname Broom Boy]] by the fans) looking up at Cantonica's night sky, holding his eponymous broom like a lightsaber.

** ''The Last Jedi'' -- [[spoiler:Kylo Ren, more deranged than ever, has usurped control of the First Order, which has whittled the Resistance's already scant numbers down to no more than a mere few dozen people aboard the ''Millennium Falcon''. Luke Skywalker is now [[TheHeroDies one with the Force]], leaving Rey with no teacher.]]

** Ships capable of destroying planets are less impressive when you realize just how easy it is to do so. (All you need is enough energy to accelerate the entire planet to escape velocity.) Other stuff, such as antigravity, is what Michio Kaku calls a Class II impossibility, yet it is commonly seen. (Han's even carried out on an antigravity gurney after he's frozen in carbonite.)

[[note]]note that, for Earth, accelerating the entire planet to its own escape velocity would take about 3.74E32 joules, or slightly under eleven and a quarter days worth of the ''total energy output of the Sun'', so "easy" may be a bit of an overstatement[[/note]]) Other stuff, such as antigravity, is what Michio Kaku calls a Class II impossibility, yet it is commonly seen.

* TheOrder: The ''Jedi'' Order, naturally. The Sith may count as an evil Order depending on how cooperative they're feeling at the moment; sometimes they're gathering in huge armies, sometimes there's only one or two of them working together.

The Sith may count as an evil Order depending on how cooperative they're feeling at the moment; sometimes they're gathering in huge armies, sometimes there's only one or two of them working together. In the Disney films, there's the ''First'' Order, which is basically a retitled version of The Empire (with a "Supreme Leader" instead of an Emperor).

* NotSoOmniscientAfterAll: Despite a lot of boasting about their [[{{Seers}} precognitive]] abilities, Jedi and Sith alike are quite prone to be as surprised as anyone else by events. The Jedi never saw the Clone Wars coming, much less their own fate under Order 66. Palpatine failed to foresee his own demise or the destruction of either Death Star.

In ''Last Jedi'', Snoke claims to "see [Kylo Ren's] mind" and can see him turning the lightsaber and using it to kill his greatest enemy [[spoiler:without noticing that he's using the Force to turn a ''different'' lightsaber than the one in his hand and that the "greatest enemy" he kills with it is Snoke himself]].

* GenerationalSaga: As of Episode VII, the films take place over a 65-year time period. The prequels follow Anakin Skywalker's rise from a slave to a Jedi Knight and then his fall to a Sith apprentice. The Original Trilogy focuses on the transformation of his son, Luke Skywalker, from a simple farmer to a galactic hero and Jedi Knight. The Sequels, so far, have Anakin's grandson, [[spoiler:Ben Solo]] having fallen to the dark side just as he did.

** ''[[AvertedTrope Averted]]'' with Creator/{{Disney}}'s buyout of the franchise. Disney has notably and purposefully avoided giving the Star Wars movies the "Disney treatment.", to the point where they distinctly ''don't'' show the Disney castle logo before each movie. In fact, ''Film/TheForceAwakens and ''Film/RogueOne'' are both rather dark films, as is ''Film/TheLastJedi'', with the latter being perhaps [[DarkerAndEdgier the darkest film in the entire franchise.]]
