The final trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is here…and we’ve got analysis for ya!
First…take a gander at the trailer itself. Then…stay tuned for our take on the movie!
WOW! That was nuts! Let’s break it down!
First…the movie opens up in a wooded area…is this the moon of Endor (featured in Return Of The Jedi)…or is this the planet of Endor itself? We’re leaning towards the latter.
Then…skip to about :34 seconds in…and you see a starship flying on that same planet. And you know who’s ship that is? That’s LEIA’S ship, baby! That’s our general and princess and she’s back!
Let’s move on to :41 seconds in, where we witness Rey and Kylo Ren having a lightsaber duel on what appears to either be a Star Destroyer or Death Star II. My guess is that it could be the Emperor’s Star Destroyer.
Let’s go to :52 seconds in, where we visit some sort of strange, ice planet that appears to be the headquarters for the First Order/Empire. My theory is that this is where the Emperor is located.
At 1:09 in, we view a small starship coming out of the water. Could this be Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing? Remember, we saw Luke’s famous ship at the bottom of the sea on Ahch-To (the island planet from The Last Jedi).
Here’s a big one. At 1:14 in, we see C-3PO getting worked on by a little creature. Then Threepio, in a sad tone, says he’s getting “one last look” at his friends. WAIT! Are they gonna kill off C-3PO?! They better not even think about having Threepio die!! Do you hear me, J.J. Abrams (director of The Rise Of Skywalker)?! C-3PO must not perish!!
After that, there are a bunch of quick action shots (with a glimpse of Lando Calrissian at 1:40 in).
Finally, we go to about 2:00 in, where it appears that PERHAPS the good Rey and sinister Kylo Ren may team up to take on the evil Emperor.
I can’t wait! I’m feeling very optimistic about this Star Wars movie…and will see it on opening night on December 20th!
May the Force be with you!
