“Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” Got A New Teaser At D23


Yesterday morning, the internet was blessed with a new look at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Over the weekend, those in attendance at D23 got to see some new footage. Now, we have that newest Teaser to share with you. The Disney celebration of all things coming to screens over the next two years was capped by this footage, which uniformly existed those lucky enough to be on hand. You can see this Teaser below, but first, we’ll be discussing it a bit, since…wow. It’s really something. This movie can’t come soon enough. It’s sure to end the year in spectacular fashion.

For those who don’t remember, the film is the continuation of the Star Wars saga, and in fact, brings it to a close. The official synopsis is as follows: “A year after the events of The Last Jedi, the remnants of the Resistance face the First Order once again—while reckoning with the past and their own inner turmoil. Meanwhile, the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaches its climax, altogether bringing the Skywalker saga to a definitive end.” From the looks of the two Teaser Trailers so far, our returning heroes Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) will be doing one last battle with the First Order, led by Kylo Ten (Adam Driver) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). Old friends like Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and General Leia (the late Carrie Fisher) will be back, along with the first new appearance for Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) in decades. If you listen to the Teaser, you can even hear Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) laughing. Richard E. Grant and Keri Russell are some of the newcomers. J.J. Abrams returns to direct, as well as co-writing here with Chris Terrio, though original scribes Derek Connolly and (former helmer) Colin Trevorrow receive credit as well. Supporting players include Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Marie Tran, and many more. Dan Mindel handles the cinematography, while of course John Williams composed the score.

This footage absolutely wowed me, especially that final moment featuring Rey looking for all the world like a Sith. Of course, knowing J.J. Abrams, that’s probably a misdirection, but still, it’s pretty crazy to see. That, along with the voice of Ian McDiarmid, returning as Emperor Palpatine, and Carrie Fisher, are a few applause worthy moments. Beyond that, the beginning of the Teaser, featuring old footage, is pretty awesome. Abrams is trafficking again in nostalgia for the franchise, which is pretty much all the fans want. There’s more than a possibility that this could go down as one of the best Star Wars outings ever.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker could end up the best chance for the franchise to get some Oscar love. Even if it’s likely just a player in the technical categories, look for Disney to launch a robust campaign. Efforts in Best Picture, Best Director (for Abrams), Best Actress (for Ridley), Best Supporting Actress (for Fisher), Best Adapted Screenplay (for Abrams, Connolly, Terrio, and Trevorrow), Best Production Design, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup & Hairstyle, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Original Score, and Best Visual Effects. This will be a flick that could dominate in the tech fields, that’s for sure. Beyond that? We’ll just have to wait and see.

You can see the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teaser next. In fact, enough talk. More on this one in the months to come before its December release, but here we go. Take a look and enjoy this little look at the end of the Star Wars Saga…
