Well this is unexpected but it looks like Disney and Lucasfilm have released the footage of the final film in the Skywalker saga to the masses after dropping it this weekend at their D23 Fan Expo! Take a peek at the incredible images of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker below!
Plot details are virtually non existent at this stage of the game but we do know that this will be the final film in the Skywalker saga before a whole new trilogy rolls out in the coming years.
Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo And Billie Lourd. New cast members include Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Dominic Monaghan, And Keri Russell. Star Wars icon Mark Hamill is Set to return as well along with Billy Dee Williams who reprises his role of Lando Calrissian.
The late, great Carrie Fisher will also make an appearance in the film as director J.J. Abrams used unreleased footage from The Force Awakens.
The biggest takeaway from the new video is seeing a very evil looking Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, wielding a double blades red lightsaber. This last act in the franchise is certainly going to pull no punches.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker makes its long awaited debut in theaters on December 20th!
