The first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: Episode IX" just dropped at Star Wars Celebration and so did our jaws.
It begins with Rey (Daisy Ridley) breathing heavily as she prepares to face down a TIE fighter single-handedly in the desert.
We also see glimpses of Kylo Ren (not shirtless, sorry!), Rey hugging Leia (the late Carrie Fisher), and the return of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams).
Not to mention Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) in their new Resistance outfits, as they discussed during the panel preceding the trailer reveal. And new duck-like droid D-0.
Oh, and the small matter of the title? Although Episode 9 has been called the end of the Skywalker saga, the official title is "The Rise of Skywalker."
As director J.J. Abrams explained, the film finds most of the heroes back together. Some time has passed since "The Last Jedi," so it does not pick up immediately where the last film left off.
"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" opens December 20, 2019.
