Star Wars Celebration in Chicago unveils the first trailer for Star Wars Episode IX
The Official Star Wars Celebration is currently underway in Chicago and as with previous events, we’ve had our first look at the next film from the Star Wars Saga.
This years film is a big one, its an end to the saga that started many years ago, this is the end to the Skywalker story.
The teaser was preceded by a panel consisting of the cast and crew including director J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy. There were newcomers such as actress Naomi Ackie who plays Jannah and old timers with the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian.
Being consistent with the previous Star Wars saga marketing campaigns, this teaser is a series of moments and we have no idea of the film’s storyline.
Finally, the end of the trailer reveals the title of the film. Star Wars: Episode Nine is now officially known as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will open in the UK on December 19th. The US can see it the following day. For other countries, keep an eye on IMDb‘s release date list.
