Luke Skywalker's epic legacy in a galaxy far, far away may be coming to an end in the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but it also marks the return of some of the series greatest characters.
You had to sit through sports to watch it, but the final trailer for the final movie of the Skywalker saga is here.
The Skywalker Saga ends December 20, when the ninth episode arrives, 42 years after George Lucas introduced us to his friends.
"Long have I waited".
For Disney, Star Wars is somewhat of a golden goose, destined to lay egg after egg until the money ceases to flow. But we also were very much aware this is the end of the trilogy and it needs to satisfy.
The trailer boasts great visuals and moments we love the franchise for and the swelling orchestral music that suits the grand experience we know we'll have.
Are you excited to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? Even C-3PO appears wistful, saying he's taking "one last look at my friends" presumably before the film's climactic showdown. Let us know below! The footage showed a hug between Princess Leia, played by the late Fisher, and Rey (Daisy Ridley). "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is slated to release on December 20.
All things considered, we think the Force will be in flawless balance by 19 December.
