The disturbance you just felt in the Force? That was the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hitting the Internet, and fans subsequently losing their collective shit!
You heard that right. The teaser for Episode IX, the 3rd and final installment in the Star Wars trilogy made its debut today during the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago, giving us a glimpse at what’s ahead, and it’s a thing of beauty.
From Rey igniting her mended lightsaber to face off against a TIE fighter chasing her in the desert to Lando Calrissian back at the helm of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the two-minute teaser will have you cheering, gasping, and talking for months to come.
And make sure you watch the trailer all the way through, as it ends with quite a doozy. I won’t spoil it for you, but needless to say, “No one’s ever really gone.”
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20, 2019, and I can’t wait!
