Here's the D23 trailer for the Star Wars episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Disney has released another Star Wars trailer at their D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA.
Just a few days ago we told you about the first trailer for the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, and no we've got fresh footage off of the last episode in the Star Wars saga.

The ninth episode is called The Rise of Skywalker, and according to the trailer it is going to be one of the more epic ones, as expected.

The first half of the trailer is pretty much just build up with footage from the previous episodes, but fortunately the latter half does reveal some new and interesting details about the upcoming movie.

We see the dynamic duo Rey and Finn, as well as their partner in crime pilot Poe Dameron. They are accompanied by who else than Chewbacca and C-3PO, who seems to turn to the dark side with a glimpse into his red eyes.

Lucasfilm has managed to reuse some footage of Carrie Fisher's Leia, and she'll appear in the movie as well.



As you would expect, there's action and space battles, but also an epic fight between Rey and Kylo Ren. What's even more cryptic or dramatic, though, is the ending of the trailer with Rey in a black hood with a Sith lightsaber not unlike the one wielded by Darth Maul.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres on December 20th.
