Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is finally playing in theaters everywhere and serves as the final installment of the Skywalker Saga, which began back in 1977 with the original film. The movie features many beloved characters from the entire franchise and the combination of people, new and old, is making a lot of Star Wars fans extremely happy. The new movie has already inspired a lot of fan art, and one artist (@pabloruizzx) took to Instagram to mash-up the latest Star Wars with the epic battle scene at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Currently, The Rise of Skywalker is up on Rotten Tomatoes with the second-worst critics score for a live-action Star Wars movie, earning a surprising 55%. However, the film is fairing better with moviegoers and currently has an 86% audience score. ComicBook.com's own Patrick Cavanaugh called the movie “a mixed bag of delights and frustrations that largely succeeds” and gave it a 4 out of 5 rating.
