The Emperor Returns In Epic ‘Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker’ Final Trailer
It’s been a whopping 42 years since the first Star Wars movie premiered. And now, after all that time, the epic Skywalker-focused space opera is finally coming to its final conclusion. But there’s still one more film to go, and the final trailer for Rise of the Skywalker has us itching to see it.
There’s been a lot of speculation as to where this final piece of the 9-flick Skywalker saga might be headed. And this absolutely stunning 2-minute and 37-second teaser does a lot to set the stage — albeit without giving away too much. It’s now clear that Emperor Palpatine, the chief antagonist and puppeteer of both the original and prequel trilogy, is making his return — though it’s still unclear as to how that’s going to happen, as he was presumed dead following Return of the Jedi. Similarly, it appears we’ll finally get to see where Rey and Kylo Ren’s enigmatic and entangled storyline is headed. And if the trailer is to be believed, this final entry should have some of the most legendary fight scenes and sci-fi space battles ever put on film. Catch Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker in theaters on December 20th of this year.
