Warning! Spoilers below
The Rise of Skywalker ends with a massive space battle between the Resistance and the First Order. The battle commences in the Planet of Exogol which is in an uncharted region. Emperor Palpatine who manages to survive being thrown down a shaft in Return of the Jedi, has been quietly plotting. You see vats of cloned Snokes, indicating he’s been involved since The Force Awakens. As viewers, we are still not given many clues as to how he survived.
A large part of the movie focuses on locating Exogol, including a mission to find a ‘Wayfinder’ that features as a star map guiding to the planet. In the scene where Rey confronts Kylo Ren and defeats him on the moon of Endor, she takes his ship, which happens to already have a Wayfinder in place from the start of the film. She starts to make her journey to Exogol and leaves a trail of breadcrumbs for the resistance to follow.
