Today, Lucasfilm and Disney have released the recent footage they showed at D23 Expo online which revealed what looks likes to be a Darkside version of Daisy Ridley’s Rey.
You can watch that new footage right here.
Her duel red lightsaber goes from twin blades to something more similar to that Darth Maul used in The Phantom Menace. It’ll be interesting to see what that scene is all about and if it’s real or just a projection/vision.
There is also a voiceover from Emperor Palpatine, who looms as a shadowy figure in the new poster which might suggest he’s a ghost in the movie. A rumor that fan sites have been circulating online for months now.
A second trailer could reveal a bit more of what the plot is and where this might take place in the film.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set for release on December 20th.
