A new trailer revealed at Disney’s D23 expo has been posted by the giant online, and excited fans get to see what is to come. The current Star Wars Trilogy concludes with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The opening scene from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer , takes us on a reminiscent journey featuring footage from all nine previous Star Wars films. Luke’s voice resounds – announcing that there have been “a thousand generations, but this is your fight.” Poe, Rey and Finn are readying for a battle of epic proportions. They meet in the centre of a battle-torn planet, prepared to fight, as battleships tear through the sky. Most surprising of all, we see Kylo Rey brandishing a double-sided RED lightsaber!
This glorious new trailer is brought to us just a few short months after the first was debuted by Lucasfilm in April at Star Wars Celebration.
The conclusive ending to current Star Wars Trilogy, The Rise of Skywalker is lined up to be a consequential film for a plethora of reasons. Set to be the last Star Wars film for a few years, Bob Iger – Disney CEO states they will be taking a break from the movies – suggesting that audience fatigue played a part in recent spin offs, Solo: A Star Wars Movie, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, not meeting the companies expectations. But before they do, fans will be spoilt to the reunion to top all reunions – bringing Mark Hamill back to the screens (we presume as the Force ghost of Luke Skywalker, seeing as we saw him die during The Last Jedi), the late and we’ll beloved Carrie Fisher (who will feature using footage shot for her previous film The Force Awakens), and world famed Billy Dee Williams returns to his role as Lando Calrissian (first appearing on Star Wars screens in 1980 for The Empire Strikes Back).
In 2022, the notorious franchise is set to return to screens with a new Star Wars movie from noted creators of fantasy series Game of Thrones, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. Also on the cards is a new trilogy from The Last Jedi director, Rian Johnson. Even despite all this fans will not have to go far to find their Star Wars fix, with not one, not two but FOUR Star Wars series currently in development for Disney’s streaming service, Disney+ – a Rogue One spin off, an Obi Wan series, The Mandalorians, and a return of old favourite, The Clone Wars.
Rise of Skywalker is set to be released on December 20th – just in time for the holidays – we can’t wait!
