Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, directed by JJ Abrams has just had a new poster and trailer released, and it simply looks epic in every way.
Its hard to know where to start! So lets start with the poster, this is excellent and brings to a conclusion a look and feel that has spilled across the 40+ years of Star Wars posters.
It's atmospheric, character filled and once you have seen the film I'm sure you will be able to relive the movie just by looking at the poster, interestingly General Lia is not pictured on the poster although Carrie Fisher is first on the cast list!
The saga will end, the story lives forever. Watch the final trailer for @StarWars: #TheRiseOfSkywalker in theaters December 20. Get your tickets now: https://t.co/MLbzRXrCJb pic.twitter.com/RLllQGme76— Star Wars (@starwars) October 22, 2019
Now the trailer - oh my god this is simply brilliant. The nods to the past are clearly in evidence right from the start as we see Rey running through a forrest with a helmet falling at her feet.
We see what looks like a star destroyer and the Death Star being pulled out of a ocean, is Rey doing this? Or is Rey and Kylo Ren doing it?
We see Rey and Kylo in what looks like the Death Star throne room from The Return Of The Jedi, and are they helping each other, if so HAS Rey gone to the dark side?
It looks like we'll have to get our hankies ready as well, does General Leia's story conclude in the most tragic of ways, at the end of the trailer we hear Luke say 'The Force Will Be With You' then we hear Leia say 'Always' suggesting they are both with the Force.
We get the return of Lando Calrissian, but will he survive the whole film or has he been brought back to conclude his story as well? Also what is happening to C-3PO, is he about to die!!
The new trilogy of films has done the best job ever in introducing us to new characters, but their fate looks uncertain, in the final moments of the trailer is that Emperor Palpatine we see floating down to confront Rey?
The movie is out on December 19th (December 20th in US) so we will have to wait till then to get our final answers.

Disney Held their bi-annual conference for fans last week with plenty of news and info for The House Of Mouse but one of the more anticipated things was new footage from the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.
Billed as the end of the epic Skywalker saga that stared 42 years ago with Star Wars (A New Hope) the film directed by JJ Abrahams will hopefully wrap up all loose ends and answer all question built up during that time.
The new footage in the 'trailer' was sparse, but along with new footage of all the primary characters that lasted on screen seconds the two money shots were Kylo Ren and Ray having a lightsaber fight, reminiscent of Kenobi and Skywalker at the end of Revenge Of The Sith, and Rey unfolding a duel ended lightsaber while wearing a black robe, reminiscent of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace.
The trailer is narrated by Emperor Palpatine which makes you wonder if Rey turns to the dark side of the force and becomes the new Darth! Or is JJ Abrahams just messing with us.
The film is set for release 19th December 2019, you can check out the new footage below.
