Fans Are Saying Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Completely Ripped Off Avengers: Endgame

DO NOT READ ON IF YOU DON'T WANT STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER TO BE SPOILED. DO NOT COMPLAIN IF YOU READ ON.

Midnight on Thursday saw cinemas across the country jam-packed with fans who flocked to get in for the first screening of Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.

Many were blown away with the new release, while others couldn't help but compare it to another recent fan favourite - Avengers: Endgame.

In a Reddit thread, someone wrote: "Anyone else notice how the final space battle played out like the final battle of Avengers: Endgame? With all the ships (returning characters) popping in on screen all together?

"And then there is the semi final REY moment where I literally ruined a line cuz I knew it was coming... She looks at Palpatine and says 'I... AM...'

"I literally said out loud 'Iron Man!' (I mean more like under my breath [sic] but a couple heard me and one laughed the other got irritated).

"I just thought the movie was fun, but rushed and compressed to hurry up and close whatever plots from 7 and 8... I just couldn't get over the Avengers: Endgame comparisons lol."

Another Reddit user agreed, writing: "Oh yeah. When Lando comes to the rescue I immediately thought of Falcon and Captain America."

While another put it down to both movies being Walt Disney distributions, saying: "I honestly don't think the movie was rushed and as for the similarities, they're made by the same overall company."

Someone else added: "Tbh, I didn't mind it at all. I thought it was a good, thematic exchange. That said, this is the very first thing that popped into my head when I first saw/heard it.

"The movies are both huge and released relatively close together by the same studio. Comparisons are... inevitable."
