Remember back on January 27 when I said the first trailer would drop on April 12 at 2 PM ET?
It has been a long wait, but we now have our first look at the final chapter of the Star Wars Skywalker Saga. Also of note is that this will be the last Star Wars film scored by John Williams, who has composed all the films in the Skywalker Saga. It makes a fitting end to a 42 year saga.
With J.J. Abrams back in the director’s chair after delivering what fans had long wanted in Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015) it will be interesting to see how the finale plays out, especially considering that there were some big diversions in Star Wars Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2017). Hopefully this won’t be a remake of Return of the Jedi, and I really expect that it won’t be. But if this is the end of the Skywalker Saga, it will need to have a conclusion for Kylo Ren – since he is the last Skywalker. I guess the question will be – does he turn to the light and find redemption, saving the resistance and restoring freedom to the galaxy?
Head on over to the Star Wars Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019) page to get the first trailer in DTS-HD Master Audio, and as always there is a mp4 with AC3 for those who require it.
