And there we have it: The very last trailer for a Star Wars movie focusing on the Skywalkers.
After 42 long years of Jedi returning, clones attacking and Force awakenings… the three-pack of trilogies that is the “Skywalker saga” comes to an end this December with the release of “Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.” Disney will keep releasing Star Wars movies, of course — but the Skywalker Saga is done*.
As with the last few Star Wars movies, Rise of Skywalker’s final trailer dropped right in the middle of Monday Night Football. This comes roughly six months after the first teaser landed back in April.
“Rise of Skywalker” is set to open on December 20th according to the billboards… which means it’s actually opening the evening of December 19th in much of the U.S. due to midnight screenings and timezone rules. If your goal is to see it as early as possible to avoid spoilers and whatnot, double check when your theater’s first screening actually is.
*Until the inevitable point down the road when another Skywalker trilogy is announced… because, well, people like the Skywalkers.
