The much-awaited trailer of 'Star Wars: Episode IX' was finally launched during the Star Wars Celebration at McCormick Place in Chicago on Friday. The movie is the final installment in the Skywalker Saga and is titled 'Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker'.
The event panel featured LucasFilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, and director, JJ Abrams, and the cast members who are also the recurring characters from the second installment 'Star Wars: Return of the Last Jedi'.
The teaser trailer of 'Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker' is everything one would expect from the finale of a saga as great as the Star Wars. It is all about what the next generation is up to, and the fight is as hard as it ever was.
Luke Skywalker had in the past tried to ensure that the knowledge was carried forward and it looks like Daisy Ridley as Rey will be the ones taking the mantle forward under Luke as the last Jedi Master. She is ready to fight for the rise of Skywalker.
The teaser is just that, it only teases us about what we can expect to see when the film releases in December. Without giving away major plot points, we see Rey is going to be a tough warrior, ready to play a crucial role in the Resistance. She wields her lightsaber with panache and talent, and we cannot wait to see the kind of warrior she becomes.
The film will see Mark Hamill reprise his role as Luke Skywalker. Adam Driver will play the role of Kylo Ren, son of Han Solo. John Boyega will play a stormtrooper who has defected to the Resistance. Lupita Nyong'o will play the role of Maz Kanata. We will also see Domnhell Gleeson as General Hux, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, among others. There will also be an appearance by late Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa in the film.
