FROM EMOTIONAL CALLBACKS TO EXOTIC LOCALES AND THE POTENTIAL RETURN OF A FAMILIAR FOE, THE NEW TEASER FOR EPISODE IX PACKED IN A LOT OF DETAILS.

After a full of life presentation that includes moderator Stephen Colbert, director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and numerous members of the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker forged, Abrams unleashed the primary teaser trailer for the movie, lastly ending months of hypothesis in regards to the movie’s title and revealing a couple of key issues. Let’s have a look and a few of the issues we discovered from the teaser and the Star Wars Celebration presentation as Star Wars returns to the Skywalker Saga and its key concepts one final time.

“NO ONE IS EVER GONE” AND THE PALPATINE CACKLE

Regardless of turning into one with the Drive on the conclusion of Star Wars: The Final Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) continues to supply Rey (Daisy Ridley) recommendation from the identical place Obi-Wan endorsed him lengthy, way back. Early within the trailer, he tells her that 1000 generations of Jedi expertise lives inside her, however the battle she is going to face is hers alone.

From the beginning, it appears the battle might be with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), her most evident rival on this newest contest for the stability of the Drive. However late within the trailer, the acquainted chortle of Sheev Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) will be heard, suggesting the “nice evil” Abrams teased throughout the panel presentation will certainly be the unique Sith architect of the Empire, tying the primary episode again into the ninth.

McDiarmid made a quick look on the Celebration stage to easily say “roll it once more” for an appreciative crowd.

However the sense that nobody is gone additionally knowledgeable the pictures of Carrie Fisher as Common Leia Organa. As beforehand reported, Abrams used materials from The Drive Awakens and The Final Jedi to maintain her alive within the story. “Emotionally, on a regular basis, it hits me that she isn’t right here, however we’re nonetheless working along with her each day,” he mentioned. “She is there in these scenes — in some scenes with Billie [Lourd], her daughter. Princess Leia lives on this movie in a method that’s mind-blowing to me.”

Previous to rolling the teaser, Ridley was requested in regards to the standing of the Skywalker lightsaber seemingly destroyed on the conclusion of The Final Jedi. “My reply shouldn’t be the tip of the story,” she mentioned. “However the lightsaber Rey inherited from Luke lives.”

This proved to be true within the teaser, with Rey igniting the laser sword shortly earlier than Kylo’s TIE fighter reaches her on an unidentified desert planet. Whereas the saber might not be a Star Wars: Episode I — Phantom Menace element — Anankin (Jake Lloyd) was far too younger in that movie to assemble it — it is likely one of the longest standing icons of your complete sequence. And whereas damaged within the final movie, its look right here is, in the end, acceptable.

THERE WILL BE WORLDS BOTH STRANGE AND FAMILIAR

So let’s discuss that desert planet for a second. Star Wars loves its deserts. Regardless of Luke telling C-3P0 (Anthony Daniels) that Tatooine is the planet furthest from the brilliant heart of the universe, it’s a shockingly necessary world when it comes to galactic historical past throughout the Skywalker Period. It stays to be seen if the desert planet within the teaser is Tatoonie, Jakku, or one more desert planet, however contemplating that surroundings’s prevalence within the Skywalker Saga, it needs to be a key factor of The Rise of Skywalker.

However it isn’t the one biome one can count on to see within the movie. Within the teaser, we get temporary pictures of an icy, mountain world, a dying forest bathed in purple daylight, and even a return to the Yavin star system. In the course of the panel, Abrams additionally revealed a photograph that includes the Millennium Falcon and most of the characters in a jungle surroundings. Abrams known as the movie an “an epic house journey on many worlds,” and it could seem like true. However will the Falcon crew hop to as many worlds because the Rogue One group? Time, after all, will inform.

LANDO PILOTS THE FALCON AGAIN

Maybe one of the crucial emotional pictures within the teaser for Star Wars old-timers is the glimpse of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) and Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) on the controls of the Millennium Falcon. Because it occurs, Lando is even again in his yellow-and-blue shirt from the Solo: A Star Wars Story period, recalling the circumstances beneath which he misplaced the ship within the first place. It’s an excellent look on Williams, who additionally appeared on stage with the forged. “I didn’t count on to be on this new journey, however I received fortunate,” he mentioned when requested about returning to the function. “I regard this as an actual spotlight.”

However he, after all, defended the scoundrel’s actions in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Again when Colbert requested him about promoting out the rebels to Darth Vader. “I get sick and bored with being accused of betraying Han Solo,” he joked. “He needed to determine one thing out! Did anyone die?” he continued, pausing solely as the group applauded. “I had to determine a option to forestall the entire demise of my pal and his mates.”

In fact, it stays to be seen if Lando will forestall any extra deaths together with his return to the sequence. However based mostly on the character’s pleasure to be again within the saddle — presumably for the primary time since his Star Wars: Return of the Jedi run on the second Dying Star — we will’t wait to see what he does with the quickest hunk of junk within the galaxy.

BB-Eight HAS A CUTE NEW DROID PAL

“BB-Eight has a brand new pal,” mentioned Abrams shortly earlier than rolling the teaser. A brand new, even smaller droid wandered onto stage. “His title is D-O,” mentioned the director. Wanting like a tricycle wheel with a shuttlecock affixed on the prime, he instantly elicited sounds of what we will solely name “affection” from the group in attendance. He seems briefly within the teaser alongside BB-8, however each the preview and the director have been mum on his final function within the saga’s closing chapter. Like BB-Eight and the porgs earlier than him, count on D-O to be your favourite new cute Star Wars character. Offered you get pleasure from cuteness in your Star Wars, that’s.

For these that don’t — which is equally legitimate — the teaser additionally affords a quick glimpse of Kylo Ren’s helmet being reforged. Rumors persist that the long-teased Knights of Ren will lastly make their debut on this story. And if they’re aligned with the nice evil of Palpatine, count on a sure darkness worthy of concluding Star Wars. Humorous all of them characteristic McDiarmid’s attribute chortle.

WE SEE THE REMAINS OF THE DEATH STAR

One other iconic Star Wars factor resurfaces within the teaser within the type of Dying Star wreckage Rey, Finn (John Boyega) and the others spy within the distance. Contemplating the terrain, we’re assuming the piece of the notorious battle station landed on one of many planets within the Yavin system, if not the moon of Yavin IV the place the rebels maintained their secret base within the unique Star Wars, Rogue One, and the ultimate season of Star Wars Rebels.

The picture evokes each the unique movie and the haunting picture of a smashed Star Destroyer within the Drive Awakens teaser. In fact, followers will instantly surprise how a bit of the house station may survive the explosion as depicted in Star Wars, however particles of that magnitude doesn’t appear out of the realm of chance. Bear in mind all of the jokes in regards to the second Dying Star raining particles throughout the forest moon of Endor and ending the Ewoks within the ensuing ecological catastrophe?

Regardless of the presumed improbability of the wreckage surviving for 30-odd years, it shook the Celebration stage viewers as they noticed it for the primary time.

When The Phantom Menace teaser first debuted 20 years in the past, it boldly declared “Each Saga Has A Starting.” The Rise of Skywalker echoes that sentiment by declaring “The Saga Comes To An Finish.” Regardless of a title extra acceptable for a Star Wars prequel or reboot, The Rise of Skywalker positively declares a conclusion to the nice filmic experiment that started over 40 years in the past, one thing that Abrams, Kennedy, and the forged burdened throughout the panel. And the feelings surrounding that have been felt on the Celebration stage, at the same time as the group cheered Rey on in her leap atop a TIE Fighter. Feelings, we count on, that individuals will really feel when the movie comes out this Christmas.
