While the mantra for Star Wars: The Last Jedi may have been “let the past die”, it seems The Rise of Skywalker would like to take a different approach. Over the weekend, at the sixth-ever D23 Expo, fans were treated to a special sneak preview of the upcoming Star Wars film, which showcases the legacy of the Star Wars saga leading up to the epic conclusion that the ninth episode in the Skywalker saga has all been leading to. There’s much to speculate about in this exclusive preview, and it boldly sets the stage for the dramatic conclusion ahead.
With The Rise of Skywalker, the Star Wars ‘Skywalker Saga’, that began with Star Wars: A New Hope finally comes to a conclusion. Tying together over forty years of Star Wars mythology and setting up a potential backdoor for more stories in the future, The Rise of Skywalker is certain to be a film long-remembered once it hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.
