Episode IX Trailer

"We'll always be with you… No one's ever really gone." Disney + Lucasfilm have debuted the first official teaser trailer for the final movie in the Skywalker saga, officially titled Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. This is the first big reveal of this highly anticipated grand finale, and it definitely ratchets up the hype to the highest levels. Directed by J.J. Abrams, this film continues the storyline started in The Force Awakens following Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren. Daisy Ridley returns, with John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, and Warwick Davis. The newcomers include Naomi Ackie, Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, and Dominic Monaghan. This is one hell of an exciting, and emotional yet mysterious trailer, with some big moments but not too many full reveals just yet. Take a look.

I'd rather see Luke drink the green titty milk on constant replay than this garbage. The SW magic has evaporated.

Underwhelming.. but still hoping it makes up for the last monstrosity

"The saga comes to an end" ....until Disney either reboots it or decides to make 3 more worthless movies.

Jezper on Apr 12, 2019


Or 3 more trilogies because...why not 😐

Whichhalfofthewit on Apr 12, 2019


So much negativity. I for one can't wait for this conclusion. "No one's ever really gone" Interesting implications.

David Diaz on Apr 12, 2019


"No one's ever really gone" is an eye-rolling movie trope / cliche / catchphrase for whenever someone important to the main character dies mid-story. Normally it's some lame scene in a movie so the viewers can identify / sympathize with character and the audience supposed to feel better about themselves. In Star Wars it just means more ghost Jedi. Long story short... "Interesting implications", that is not. (Yoda voice)

Akirakorn on Apr 12, 2019


If you say so. I think it could mean a lot of different things in this story so I find it interesting to think of what they could mean. Whether it turns out to be something cool or just an "eye-rolling movie trope" remains to be seen. I'm at least going to be open to the possibilities before making judgements that will cloud my initial viewing.

TFW and TLJ were pretty good movies but for the love of god can we please have some decent lightsaber action in this one???

Jon Odishaw on Apr 12, 2019


TLJ had a great lightsaber action scene midway, and teased an epic one at the end. Too bad the story around it was a massive letdown. TLJ shoulda been episode 9 with the finale of Ben turning good / it was his plan all along / Jedi Professor Snape at the end. With him and padawan Rey Potter vanquishing Darth Voldemort and his Red Guard Death Eaters in epic fashion. Passionate embrace. Ewok dance party celebration Episode II. Roll credits.

I'm ready! Glad JJ abrams is back (wish he did all 3).

The Last Jedi was such a rubbish movie that I just can't be bothered to get my hopes up for this.

Jimmy Rabbitte on Apr 12, 2019


The Last Jedi was rubbish and that's oddly why I am up for this next one. To restore a decent legacy to this current trilogy hopefully.

LightningB on Apr 12, 2019


I am hesitant. I will be going with the same group of guys I've attended the premieres with since Phantom Menace... but I just don't want to get too optimistic. Hopefully the JJ Factor rights the ship.

Jimmy Rabbitte on Apr 12, 2019


I just hope BB-8 bites it in epic fashion in this movie.

SteadyEddieTX on Apr 12, 2019


$5 says R2D2 sacrifices himself for BB8. Kids cry. Fanboys rage. C3PO commits seppuku. Or celebrates. Honestly... does C3PO really hate R2D2, or is he Tsundere? Tsundere = Cold-blooded meanie on the outside, big emotional softie on the inside.

Akirakorn on Apr 12, 2019


The Last Jedi was rather interesting and a good one. This one will be fun too. Interesting title ...

shiboleth on Apr 12, 2019


Well gee...another one, eh? I couldn't tell you the last one of these I saw...if any as I'm not a fan, to say the least. I will say they cast they young gal properly as she's a real this is it? The end of them? Hmmmm........

thespiritbo on Apr 12, 2019


Open wallet. Invert orientation. Shake vigorously. Too bad they didn't use actual IMAX cameras, or did they??

Whichhalfofthewit on Apr 12, 2019


All of us Star Wars nerds will be doing this.

THE_RAW_ on Apr 17, 2019


This is probably the worst trailer I have seen in years, but excited for Star Wars to be over for many years.

Wayne on Apr 12, 2019


Yes I'm excited for it and yes the trailer looks good but so did the one for Last Jedi and that one was a borderline crapfest. Like all Rian Johnson could think to do was spit on established SW signature pieces and insult intelligence with a dopey story. (Rose and Finn leave the ship to a casino planet to get a code breaker to bring back to the ship that's being chased the entire time to take down their tracking device so they can then get away?...................what?) While it was disappointing I'm not going to pretend to be a snob and act like I'm not interested or may not even see the next one. Of course I am. Gotta see if Abrams closes this out with a decent bang. Although as one poster said below it's the end until Disney decides to spew out more sequels. With them that's a real possibility. Nothing Disney can't dilute.

LightningB on Apr 12, 2019


Will not be seeing this. Long ago in a galaxy far, far away George Lucas bastardized Star Wars for me, circa 2005. Mr. Lucas never should have sold it to Disney, furthermore Kathleen Kennedy should not be overseeing Star Wars, (she's pure evil). On a plus side glad to see the King of Smooth is back (aka- Billy Dee Williams).

Sergio R. on Apr 12, 2019


Yes, Billy's the man, but he'll be playing Lando now a sexual deviant porking droids as per Solo's canon. Disney's SW is a joke

whoafilms on Apr 13, 2019


Never forget! Never FORGIVE!

THE_RAW_ on Apr 17, 2019


Looks solid . It's of course a repetition of what we have seen before. But hey ! It's star wars..

Arie Smulders on Apr 13, 2019


that's all i need. i'm too old and too invested and set in my ways to miss this, and i don't need to be told the whole story in the trailer, thanks. plus, i enjoyed The Last Jedi for doing different things, and i have no idea form that or this teaser where or how this saga will conclude - much preferable to being able to guess the ending before the film starts!

son_et_lumiere on Apr 13, 2019


Hopefully this will cleanse the bad taste ep.8 left. As of this moment, things are looking up: Billy Dee, and some form of Palpatine, which means more Ian McDiarmid!

grimjob on Apr 13, 2019


What if everyone comes back in some ghost jedi/ sith scene-ending dual and then everyone dies in the end, the universe explodes and the solar system is born...

Movies Are Fun on Apr 14, 2019


Sometimes expectations can definitely spoil a film after seeing the trailer. That's exactly what happened with "The Last Jedi" for me. There were some things I really enjoyed in TLJ and some things that left me an enraged frothing-at-the- mouth fanboy. And I'm cautiously optimistic after seeing this trailer. Honestly, I'm more excited for "The Mandalorian" more than any of the films right now. Disney needs new stories to bring to this universe, because the Skywalker saga needs to be laid to rest.
