Our first look at Star Wars: Episode IX is here!
And the galaxy is full of chatter. Finally we get a title — Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!
The news first broke yesterday during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Director/Writer J.J. Abrams (my favorite!) and Producer Kathleen Kennedy were joined by stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Naomi Ackie, Joonas Suotamo, and Anthony Daniels, and droids BB-8 and D-0, for a panel discussion moderated by Stephen Colbert.
How amazing does that sound? Man, I am totally having FOMO right now.
It really was a day of surprises at Star Wars Celebration for the enthusiastic fans in attendance as the title of the final installment of the Skywalker saga, a signature title poster, and the first teaser trailer were all revealed!
Talk about a worthwhile panel!
Seeing Rey again in this trailer makes me want to pull on my Musterbrand sweater and put my hair up in three buns. I love her so much.
What is your favorite part of the new trailer? I love seeing Lando (in one of his signature capes) team up with Chewie, Kylo’s signature helmet back in the mix, BB-8 with a new droid friend, and so many other scenes to dissect.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in U.S. theaters on December 20. (But I’m not sure how I can wait that long!)
