Might the force be with you.
On what would have been Carrie Fisher’s birthday celebration, Star Wars launched their last trailer to the very prepared for verdict to the impressive “Skywalker Saga” that started in 1977. Following the rather tepid response to Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, along with the disappointingly plain Solo, the pressure is definitely on for The Rise of Skywalker to give a gratifying as well as cohesive culmination to the problem between the Jedi as well as the Sith.
Emphasized by John Williams’ great songs, the trailer provides the largest glance at the epic conclusion to the legendary space opera that has covered five decades. Attention is given to a host of new worlds, including a water-based planet that appears to house the remains of the damaged Death Celebrity, along with jungle landscapes as well as a planet constructed completely by ice. It is on this ice earth that the return of Emperor Palpatine is teased, seeming the site of one of the large conflicts of the movie. Rey is additionally seen battling Kylo Ren around the website of the Death Star, with water surging on either side of them.
Further alluding to Rey’s ongoing problem between light and dark, she proves, “People keep telling me that they understand me. No one does.”
“I do,” reacts Kylo Ren, showing that the last film will not ignore the link in between both protagonists.
The psychological beats of the trailer come both from the sight of Carrie Fisher as Leia welcoming Rey, along with C3PO. In previous trailers, we have seen C3PO with red eyes, as well as here we see him state, “I’m taking one last look. At my buddies.” It appears that this film could be seeing the final end for one of the longest running personalities in the Celebrity Wars franchise.
It does seem rather unusual to be bidding farewell to the Skywalker period with none of the initial Skywalkers staying, yet Luke’s presence is really felt throughout the trailer via his assertions that, “The Force will be with you.”. Behind-the-scenes, Leia includes, “Always.” while the light of Rey’s lightsaber radiates in her eyes.
While the initial trio might be eliminated from the story, with Han Solo having proposal goodbye in The Force Awakens and also Luke having actually perished in The Last Jedi and also Leia set to have a lowered duty below, as a result of Carrie Fisher’s unforeseen and awful demise. With Leia initially readied to take centre phase in the last episode, it stays to be seen how this equilibrium will certainly be readdressed as well as certainly just how her formerly tape-recorded areas will certainly be integrated right into the final edit.
While giving us several shots and hints at what exists in advance, consisting of area problems galore, the trailer still provides little away in terms of the plot, implying that there is still lots of tricks entrusted to reveal when the movie is launched.
