It’s become somewhat of a tradition for each new installment of the Star Wars saga films to have a trailer released during Monday Night Football. That is no different this year, as a new trailer for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, the final installment of the nine-film story arc, aired tonight during the game between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.
Watch the trailer here below, and check out the new poster too.
Star Wars Celebration is finally behind us. But even after watching the explosive first trailer for Episode IX, now officially titled Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, watching the panel, and listening to interviews there are still a lot of questions that have gone unanswered. While many of us have already theorized on what the title could mean, another question on everybody’s mind is what does Emperor Palpatine’s menacing laugh at the end of the teaser trailer mean for our heroes.
After the trailer was shown to attendees the lights came on to reveal Ian McDiarmid, the actor who has portrayed Palpatine since The Return of the Jedi and in all of the subsequent prequels. It pretty much confirmed that the Sith Lord would be back, at least in some capacity. While this was a surprise to many of us, the move was in the works for a long time. More on the report below.
Every generation has a legend. And all great sagas must come to an end. Such is the fate for Star Wars, who has been telling us the story of the Skywalker story since 1977. Over forty years later, Disney and Lucasfilm will bring that saga to a close with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. During Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, the cast and crew took to the stage to give us our first look at the upcoming and highly anticipated final chapter of the Skywalker story. Check it out below.
Much to everyone’s disappointment, D23 Expo attendees and Star Wars fans were disappointed to hear nothing about the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII from Disney Chief Alan Horn. The exec reiterated information that we already knew, that J.J. Abrams is directing, that Michael Arndt is writing, and that John Williams will be conducting. So since the studio didn’t take the opportunity to make any announcements on their own stage, fans will have to be patient and wait it out.
In the mean time, some juicy gossip regarding who may be returning for Episode VII has been rumored. If true, it could mean that Emperor Palpatine (played by Ian McDiarmid) could rise up and stir up some trouble within the force.
