The Rise of Skywalker is coming to theaters this December. Here's everything we know so far. The movie has a lot to live up to. Director J. Abrams will need to find a way to offer an ending to the revived Star Wars movie universe following a mixed reception to The Last Jedi and Solo's box office flop.
On Saturday, those attending the Disney Movies panel got to see some footage for Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker, and now, that footage has been released online. Although the only people who actually got to watch the new footage were those who attended the panel, GameSpot's Chris E. Hayner was on the ground to tell us exactly what went down during the fast-paced video sequence. A fleet of Resistance fighters are coming out of lightspeed, which then turns into a reveal of a fleet of Star Destroyers, lined up in space in an attack position. Back on the ground, Rey chops down a tree by throwing her lightsaber at it.
For the past few months, fans have been living in what one might call a drought of Star Wars -related news. A trailer is imminent—and by imminent, I mean, one will likely be released any time between now and December But at this point, fans don't even know the title of the movie. There hasn't even been a single official image. So when a poster started going around Twitter that appeared to be the real deal, fans got pretty damn excited.
But the image may also confirm which side wins the fight Fans may find it difficult to speculate too deeply on this final chapter in the Skywalker saga, after audiences everywhere were completely shocked by the news that Emperor Palpatine returns in Episode 9. When the filmmakers further confirmed that Palpatine was always planned for Star Wars 9 , most theories were disproven, since a final showdown between Rey, Kylo Ren, and Palpatine wasn't predicted by anybody. But the first appearance of all three on The Rise of Skywalker poster seems to have revealed more than fans will realize. Not just who will win the final fight, but what it will mean for the grinning villain, too. The announcements and footage from D23 gave fans plenty to speculate over, and for many, the appearance of a 'dark Rey' with a red lightsaber cast serious doubt on a happy ending.
The new Rise of Skywalker poster is also the first look at the return of the Emperor, who was believed dead after the events of Return of the Jedi. What the new Star Wars : The Rise of Skywalker poster doesn't give away is the fact that Rey will wield a double-bladed red lightsaber, similar to the one used by Darth Maul. The red colour is indicative of Rey's possible turn to the dark side of the Force — and an influence of the Sith. Set aside the fact that Darth Maul was a Sith Lord, The Rise of Skywalker is being set up as the final chapter of the nine-film Skywalker saga, which means it also has to conclude the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith. In addition to releasing a new poster and showing off a trailer to D23 attendees, Lucasfilm also brought out The Rise of Skywalker director J. Abrams and much of the cast on stage on Saturday in California. But what an ending.
