The journey nears its end: the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is here.
In 1977, a new breed of fandom was born. With the inception of the Star Wars universe in A New Hope, an epic story began that’s enchanted audiences for nearly half a century.
In December, after some late series turbulence, the Skywalker saga comes to its seismic end. ‘Every generation has a legend.’
The final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has just dropped and it’s teeing up an emotional goodbye that’s already sending fans into hysterics. The trailer played during Monday Night Football on ESPN and tickets went on sale online just as the teams kicked off. Pre-sale records are already being broken.
The trailer blends action with the familiar elements of Star Wars films — gathering troops, droid humor, Chewbacca growls, a touching sight of the late Carrie Fisher, lightsaber battles, possibly a new planet? — with a wistful sweetness acknowledging this is the last film of the third trilogy.
