There’s less than a month left until the year’s most anticipated film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, arrives in theatres. And now, the folks at Disney have released a new clip to whet fans’ appetites.
The clip finds The First Order in hot pursuit of our heroes, Rey, Finn, Chewie, Poe, C-3PO, and BB-8. And just as the rebels seem to gain some distance from their pursuers, the First Order troopers unveil a sneaky trick they had up their sleeve.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker clip:
The previous Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, saw the main cast spread out across the galaxy; Rey apprenticing under Luke, Finn on Canto Bight, and Poe defending the rebel fleet. The Rise of Skywalker is the “final” entry in Star Wars’ “Skywalker Saga,” and this is the last hurrah for this generation of characters. So, it’s welcome to see our heroes in over their heads and reunited on one last adventure.
