The First Order is a fictional military power in the Star Wars franchise, introduced in the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Resurrected from the fallen Galactic Empire after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983), the organization has amassed its power in secret over three decades. In The Force Awakens, the First Order has begun executing its plan to depose the New Republic and reclaim control of the galaxy. The Knights of Ren are a mysterious group of elite warriors within their ranks, led by Kylo Ren.
Critics and fans have noted the use of imagery highly reminiscent of Nazi Germany for the First Order in The Force Awakens, including a sequence mimicking the 1935 Nazi propaganda film Triumph of the Will.
Like the Galactic Empire before for it, the group is depicted as a highly efficient and ruthless totalitarian faction based around an ideology of “might makes right”.
The Force Awakens writer/director J. J. Abrams said that the First Order is inspired by the theory of ODESSA, which allegedly involved SS officers fleeing to Argentina following World War II.
