Star Wars: Episode IX Teaser Trailer


Here it is, fresh from the unveil at Star Wars Celebration: the very first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker! This will mark the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga and, from what we have been hearing already, it will likely be the last Star Wars movie before they take a bit of a hiatus (famous last words). Plot details are still being kept under wraps but clearly Rey is heading for her final confrontation with Kylo Ren and the dark side. Billy Dee Williams is back as Lando and it would appear that Ian McDiarmid is also making his return as Emperor Palpatine. Star Wars: Episode IX is directed by J.J. Abrams and hits theatres on Dec. 20th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.

  • Deven Science

    Sees the title: Whaaaaa?!

  • R2 is conspicuously absent in this trailer (unless I missed him?)
    I like the idea of BB8 secretly dropping him off a cliff and replacing him moving forward. “R2D2? What R2D2?”

  • Lisa V Benson

    Great trailer!

  • Rise of Skywalker is either a title meant to troll people who disparaged SWTLJ or cater to the already disgruntled fan base…either way it is such an overt and obsequious way to try to calm the backlash against the franchise…JJ is probably desperate especially after what Rian Johnson did to his ideas and narrative plans…basically trashed them all…granted I didn’t like JJ’s direction anyway, but RJ just took it to a place that virtually destroyed the Skywalker storyline.

    I love the SW universe but it’s beginning to look like the DCEU…a mess.

  • Tim-guest

    Daisy Ridley is doing pretty good “intense concentrating face”.

  • Loofton

    Calling it now. ‘Skywalkers’ will be the name of the next generation of Jedi who balance the dark and light side

  • Lior

    Loved it. Looks great. Pretty excited!

  • Blake in Boston

    Notice how every teaser trailer has begun with heavy breathing?

    Surprised by Frank not calling out these “mouth breathers.”

  • Blake in Boston

    Agreed. Stoked.

  • pcch7

    It can only go up after Ruin Johnson right? =D

  • Nirwin

    I bet “Roundhead” Rian is spinning in his grave (that he sleeps in despite still being alive because he is evil incarnate).

  • eliantigiorgi

    I wonder who’ll will veto this movie first? (Jay)

  • Beat_C

    they put way too much makeup on daisy.

  • Mrespony

    As a music video for John Williams’ amazing score this works beautifully, but I’ll reserve judgement until release as to whether JJ can salvage this trilogy after a childish and silly second act.
