Must See 28/08/2019

Star Wars fans - rejoice!

The new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker has finally been released and it is fair to say it has got us very excited!

The trailer, released by Disney, gives fans an epic trip down memory lane and having a look at where all the Skywalker saga began.

We get to see the early days featuring Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia, as well as fan favourites like Yoda, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Mace Windu, Qui-Gon Jinn and even Darth Vader.

But the last minute or so of teh two minute trailer gives us a glimpse into the new film.

In them we glimpse the main cast together along with Carrie Fisher reprising her role posthumously, a massive space battle with several Rebel ships and a swarm of Star Destroyers, and brief glimpse of a new character, Jannah, aboard a ship with Finn.

From there the focus shifts to the Force users. Rey slices through trees with her lightsaber, and we see a brief look of Rey's duel with Kylo Ren from the poster released over the weekend. After an ominous voice says "Your journey nears its end," the final shot shows Rey in black robes and wielding a dual-bladed red lightsaber -telltale signs of a Sith.
