WATCH: Disney drops title, trailer for Star Wars IX
The teaser, which represents the ninth installment of the movie, was released through a tweet from Star Wars’ Twitter handle on Friday, April 12, 2019, during the movie’s celebration in Chicago.
In the trailer, which begins with Rey’s panting in the desert, Ray portrayed by Daisy Ridley, an English actress, is seen getting advice from Luke (Mark Hamil). The movie would be available in theaters come December.
‘The Rise of Skywalker’ sees the return of Princess Leia and the Emperor Palpatine to threatens Rey while Dee Williams revives his role as Lando Calrissian.
Towards the end of the trailer, an ominous laughter is heard from Emperor Palpatine as a menacing storm and horridly overcast clouds are seen far ahead in the Horizon.
Daily Mail reports that J.J. Abrams, the movie’s director, confirmed that ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ would feature a live Princess Leila, even though the said role fizzled out in 2016.
“Princess Leila lives in this film in a way that is mind-blowing to me. This movie is about the new generation and what they’ve inherited, the light and the dark,” he said during the celebration in Chicago.
