The saga will end. The story will live forever.
Watch the brand new trailer for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker below:
Star Wars fans have been waiting patiently for the new trailer to arrive ever since director JJ Abrams revealed the first look at the film in April earlier this year, during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, where he showed fans the first look at the title and the first look trailer, which was seen by over 111 million people in the first 24 hours.
It’s fair to say that fans are already extremely excited about the trailer and seeing the final chapter of the franchise that returned to our lives, and screens, back in 2015.
In 2015, JJ Abrams brought the Star Wars franchise back to life with Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a brand new cast playing fresh new characters, including Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Renn, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron; as well as reintroducing us to the beloved characters from the original Star Wars franchise by bringing back Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and the late Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.
Continuing the story from The Force Awakens was Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, released in 2017, which despite becoming the highest-grossing film of the year, and ninth of all time, became the subject of an online petition from fans demanding for the film to be remade.
The Rise Of Skywalker will be the final chapter of the trilogy and judging by the trailer it looks as though it could be the most thrilling yet, and once again looks to tell a new Star Wars story, with more than a nod to its predecessors, and it’s iconic characters.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker will be released in UK cinemas on December 19th by Walt Disney Studios. Tickets for The Rise Of Skywalker are on sale now!
