Move along kids, because the trailer for the end of the Skywalker saga is finally here!
Yesterday, October 22, Lucasfilm has shared the trailer for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. This final trailer marks the ninth installment of the epic science fiction series, and it also signifies the end of the Skywalker saga.
Honestly though, by this time we have already gotten a bit tired with the sci-fi story’s installments. We are at that part where we just look at every trailer and say, “I thought this was finished already?”. Losing track of the latest episode releases, we just aren’t hyped up for this anymore.
But hey, we don’t want to burst your bubble. So if you are still somehow interested in how the culmination of the Skywalker story will be, watch the trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker below.
The saga ends
This last trailer showcases Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) and her journey of self-discovery. We first saw her character in Episode VII: The Force Awakens and again in Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.
Apparently, in this upcoming film, her last face-off with Supreme Leader Kylo Ren will happen, along with the final battle between the Resistance and the First Order. Together with her friends Poe Dameron, Finn, Rose, Chewbacca, BB-8, C3PO, R2D2, Lando Calrissian, Billy Dee Williams, and the spirits of Luke Skywalker and General Leia Organa, they aspire to defeat the First Order and consequentially, Emperor Palpatine.
We know that we already said the series is becoming too draggy at this point. However, when the characters that we love appeared, we just can’t help but feel nostalgic of the initial episodes of Star Wars. Hell, especially when the all-too-familiar theme song played in the background!
To be frank though, we are not closing ourselves to the small itty bitty chance that we might catch this on the big screen. After all, they said that it’s the end of an era. But still the question is: is it really though?
Are you looking forward to the ninth episode of Star Wars? What do you think will happen to the group as they face off against the First Order?
