Star Wars Celebration is upon us and during the Episode IX panel Lucasfilm unveiled the new teaser for Star Wars Episode IX titled "Rise of Skywalker." One of my friends is waiting to watch the teaser until we see Endgame in the theater so I'm not going to spoil any of the teaser details in this post but we can in the comments.

After this teaser I'm more excited for The Rise of Skywalker than Endgame or any other movie this year. It's the end of the Skywalker Saga but not quite end of the Star Wars franchise. I've heard news from Lucasfilm and Disney that after this movie they are going to take a break from making films and focus on TV shows on the new Disney+ streaming service. I like the idea of great Star Wars shows but had hoped they'd have figured out how to roll out a new film each year.

That said, let me know what you think of The Rise of Skywalker teaser and i'll put my spoilery thoughts in the comments.

Couple things to take away from the trailer:

1. Stormtrooper in jetpacks
2. Rey looks even more badass than before (tie fighter jump FTW)
3. Luke is training her still
5. Are they taking something/collecting something to the Return of the Jedi deathstar and is that Endor?
6. THE EMPEROR? Lots of thoughts about this, but wow, I was surprised and excited to see how they use him in this film.

I was waiting for someone to post this! LOL I read some articles about it, too. It looks cool. I didn't really know it was the emperor at the end, I thought it was Snook (sp?). I forgot that he and Luke died.

Oh yeah it’s the Emperor and I think it’s spelled Snoke.

Maybe they can continue the Darth Maul story line from Solo in a TV show form.

That would be great. I wouldn’t mind a Solo show either.
