The final trailer for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker has been revealed, and we cannot wait for the final-ever episode in the Skywalker saga to hit UAE cinemas this December.
Set to hit UAE cinemas on Tuesday December 19, the movie will conclude the trilogy of trilogies that first began in 1977 with Episode IV: A New Hope.
Episode VII saw the franchise resume in 2015, and in 2019, as the trailer puts it, the saga will end.
Watch the full trailer now:
What does the trailer show us? And what do we know so far?
We’ll expect to see the conclusion of Rey’s journey of discovery in the ways of the Force, her true identity should be revealed. “People keep telling me they know me, no-one does,” she says.
“But I do,” responds Kylo Ren – and we wait to find out how the two central characters in the trilogy resolve their ongoing feud-meets-partnership.
You can hear the voice of Emporer of Palpatine/Darth Sidious, long thought dead after being zapped and zurped down an infinity well by an atoning Darth Vader in 1983’s Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
“Long have I waited, and now you’re coming together is your undoing,” booms the voice of actor Iain McDiarmid, who has starred in the role of the series’ ultimate villain since Return of the Jedi back in 1983.
Elsewhere, it looks like there’s set to be an emotional farewell to C3P0. “I’m taking one last look, sir, at my friends,” he says in an unnervingly jaunty-yet-desolate. Meanwhile, previously unused scenes with the sadly-departed Carrie Fisher as Princess/Commander Leia feature in the trailer, implying an fitting conclusion to her storyline.
So, whatever your plans are on Tuesday December 19, cancel them right now, and witness the ending of Hollywood’s legendary space epic.
