First trailer for final episode of Star Wars saga revealed

First trailer for final episode of Star Wars saga revealed

The trailer opens up with Rey panting as she's seen running with a lightsaber in a desert before jumping on a ship.

Given how important the Skywalker family has been to the Star Wars franchise and that this movie marks the end of the Skywalker Saga, Episode IX being called The Rise of Skywalker is rather fitting.

At the convention, director J.J. Abrams said some time has passed between the events of 2017's "The Last Jedi" and the beginning of "The Rise of Skywalker". The most significant out of the entire trailer is when Rey stands strong looking at what appears to be Death Star wreckage and the video closes with an evil laughter of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Star Wars Celebration still has a few more days to go, so expect a lot more announcements in the coming days.

Carrie Fisher's Leia Organa is back as well, despite the actress's untimely passing in December 2016, thanks to unused footage from "The Force Awakens" which Abrams was able to craft into its own narrative for this new film.

Episode IX is released, the movies will take a break and the focus will shift towards the Television Series that will stream on Disney+ such as, The Mandalorian, the Cassian Andor series and Season Seven Of Clone Wars.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is yet to take a call but said it is monitoring the situation closely. As of Thursday night, there was no decision on part of the lenders to release money, said a person in the know.

After Last Jedi comes a hero's welcome for Kelly Marie Tran. First, it's the rise of the Skywalker legacy and Rey and Kylo's relationship to that legacy. You don't recast that part, and you don't suddenly have her disappear.

Stephen Colbert, who hosted the big opening panel for Star Wars Celebration 2019, asked Abrams the question we were all thinking. "What if we could write scenes around her?" he noted.

Luke Skywalker's voice is also present throughout the trailer.

No one's ever really gone. Could Luke's reference to "we" also suggest more Force ghosts will visit Rey? Directed by The Force Awakens' J.J. Abrams, the film will also include new characters played by Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Dominic Monaghan(Lord of the Rings), Keri Russell (The Americans), and more.
