Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Trailer Teases Carrie Fisher Scene

The first trailer for Episode IX is here!

The final Star Wars movie of an epic nine-film arc has some big expectations to meet ― and the first full trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker gave fans their first look on Friday.

Yep, The Rise of Skywalker is the title, which should inspire some theories before the December 20 release, because this teaser didn’t give an awful lot away.

It begins with Daisy Ridley’s Rey activating her lightsaber and sprinting into a backflip toward a pursuing craft. It proceeds to introduce some of the characters, including John Boyega’s Finn and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, in this highly anticipated final chapter.

And then there’s Carrie Fisher’s General Organa in a deep embrace with Rey.


Carrie’s family announced last year that they were satisfied with the way director J. J. Abrams had integrated footage of the late Fisher into Episode IX.

Abrams himself told a Stephen Colbert-hosted fan fest in Chicago on Friday that “she’s so alive in the scenes.”

Her big moment in the trailer proved that perhaps Abrams was right.
