Star Wars Episode IX Teaser Unveils Title: ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ 1

At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, Disney unveiled the first teaser for ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’, revealed the title, ‘The Rise of Skywalker’.

The trailer opens with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) talking over footage of Rey (Daisy Ridley) on a desert planet. She draws a lightsaber and leaps towards an encroaching enemy ship. A montage of various shots show main characters like Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), and BB-8 (as himself), as well as Billy Dee Williams returning as Lando Calrissian, and the late Carrie Fisher appearing as Leia in footage originally shot for 2017’s ‘The Last Jedi’. Another surprise return is Ian McDiarmid as Emperor Palpatine, implying that his ghost may still hold some power over the current story. JJ Abrams, known for his work on ‘Lost’, ‘Star Trek’, and ‘Star Wars Episode VII’, will return to direct Episode IX.
