New Star Wars: Episode IX Teaser Trailer Released

So we've got a lot to see (and hear) in this 2 minute Teaser for Star Wars: Episode IX. The first thing to note is now we have a title! Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has already been said to be the "end of the Skywalker saga". It's been 42 years since we first watched toe story unfold for a farm boy on a desert planet who is snatched up by a hermit, a smuggler, and a giant furry co-pilot to save the princess and other crazy space adventures to come.

Now we are promised a finale of epic proportions with an all-star cast including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher (portrayed through unused footage from previous films), and the long-awaited return of Billy Dee Williams. Other cast members returning include Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, and Adam Driver. New cast members will include Matt Smith (Dr. Who), Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Lost), and Keri Russell (Felicity, The Americans). Directed once again by JJ Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will hit US theaters on December 20, 2019.
