The Saga Ends in 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Trailer

Mark Hamill's Biggest Shock with The Force Awakens & His Pitch No One Wanted

A new film trailer released in conjunction with the annual Star Wars Celebration in Chicago finally gives a title to the upcoming Star Wars film. Soon thereafter, a young Mark Hamill says, "Hopefully it will justify as a series, make you say, 'Gee, what happens next?'" Little did he know that eventually, the ninth episode of the Skywalker saga would pack an arena with thousands of fans eager to be part of the title and trailer reveal.

Speaking of which, we also get a glimpse of the final onscreen appearance of the beloved Carrie Fisher, whom we lost at the end of 2016, as Princess Leia.

"The lightsaber that Rey inherited from Luke lives", Daisey Ridley replies when asked about if her lightsaber is destroyed or if she starts anew. "The idea of having a CG character wasn't even an option".

And previous year, Abrams released a statement assuring fans they had no plans to recast Fisher's iconic character.

Fans who reach for the simple explanation - that Rey is actually Rey Skywalker, and therefore Kylo Ren was lying when he said her parents were junk traders who sold her for drinking money - need to remember that Abrams is the master of misdirection.

"How did I find Lando again?"

Abrams confirmed that the film unfolds "some time" after the events of 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

"This is an adventure that the group goes on together", he teased, although he wouldn't reveal whether or not that meant the group on stage or some other combination. "As they face this greatest evil, are they prepared?" And we can't wait to see the whole lands for ourselves.

She added: "I think I can confirm there are no more semi-naked Kylos".

The loudest cheers at the panel were reserved for Kelly Marie Tran, whose introduction in The Last Jedi earned the actor - who is the first woman of colour to take a leading role in the series - a substantial amount of racist abuse online.

"George was saying this is the third act of a third act structure". That doesn't explain how Emperor Palpatine is back for The Rise of Skywalker at all.

The trilogy has been a big box office success for Disney, which acquired Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012.

Certain to dominate the DVD galaxy, the much-anticipated release of "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" is now yours to own.

Star Wars Episode 9 will be the end of an era for fans.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker began filming at London's Pinewood Studios on August 1, with J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek) returning to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga.
