The original release of this movie in Italian cinemas, was planned for January 6, 2016 (three weeks after the international release, last country in the world). "Walt Disney Pictures Italia" had decided to release the new Star Wars film after Pixar's movie The Good Dinosaur (2015), planned for the Italian cinemas for December 18, 2015. After this decision, Star Wars' Italian fandom made a petition with over five thousand signatures to Disney Italia's staff, and asked to move the date of release in their country. On April 7, 2015, Walt Disney Pictures Italia decided to change the date of the two movies: "The Good Dinosaur" moved to a November 25, 2015 release, and this movie moved to two days before the international release, on December 16, 2015.

After the TIE fighter disables the Millenium Falcon's underside cannon, we see the cannon point 90 degrees straight down from the Falcon's fuselage. However, when we get an underside shot of the Falcon being drawn onto Han and Chewies freighter, the cannon is facing forward again. See more »
Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

In short, this could have been good, perhaps great in its own right as it has been over 30 years since ROTJ. It fell short on all fronts: character introduction, depth, development, empathy and purpose. Some veteran actors did well with what they could with what they had (remaining). Yet interactions of known characters were so short and shallow when passion was needed most. Every scene was quick and snappy with zero time for the viewer to soak in the world or situation, just pushed around to the next scene. Even panned shots and close- ups of vehicles were rushed and the fights predictable. I won't comment on the plot at all or the lack of story depth. This was only a sci-fi motion picture going through the motions. What you heard is true...all of it. A shame.
