Things Only True Fans Noticed In The Rise of Skywalker Trailer

  • Published: 13 April 2019
  • We're going to show you things only true fans noticed in The Rise of Skywalker trailer! Well, it's finally here: the trailer for the final installment of the Skywalker Saga. And with the trailer we finally get a title: The Rise of Skywalker. Considering that Luke Skywalker seemed to buy the moisture farm at the end of The Last Jedi, we can't help but wonder just which Skywalker is about to rise. We can only guess at what some of the scenes in this trailer might mean. But rest assured - a lack of actual knowledge never stopped us from speculating wildly about trailers before. Crack open your Wookieepedias, and dust off your holocrons - here are the small details you might've missed in the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

    After two mainline movies' worth of fans constantly wondering where smooth operator Lando Calrissian, played by BIlly Dee Williams, might be hiding, the teaser finally confirmed that he'll return in The Rise of Skywalker. And he's right back where fans last saw him 36 years ago at the end of Return of the Jedi, sitting in the pilot's seat of the Millennium Falcon and having a grand old time. His co-pilot this time out isn't rebel smuggler Nien Nunb - who incidentally is still active in the Resistance movement. Instead, it's none other than Chewbacca accompanying Lando on a jump through hyperspace. Where are they headed? A very brief shot of a battle scene looks like it may take place in Lando's old stomping grounds, Cloud City.

    Of course, fans have seen Lando in a movie since Jedi: 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story, where he was portrayed by Donald Glover instead of Williams. Interestingly, Williams seems to be wearing the same, or at least a very similar, yellow-and-black costume as the one Glover wore in the prequel. Perhaps he's trying to recapture the swashbuckling days of his youth? Or maybe it's just so newer fans will recognize him.

    Arguably the most touching moment in the first teaser for The Rise of Skywalker is the brief shot of Leia and Rey embracing in a forest-like setting. A single tear runs down's Rey’s cheek as Luke's voiceover intones, "We'll always be with you." While the in-universe context for this heartfelt hug is still unknown, we do know that scenes featuring the late Carrie Fisher in The Rise of Skywalker are actually unused clips from The Force Awakens.

    Much to the relief of Fisher fans worldwide, Lucasfilm announced in July 2018 that her character would not be controversially resurrected via CGI, like Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin in 2016's Rogue One. Instead, Abrams and his team would find a way to work with a number of scenes that had gone unused from Episode VII, as director J.J. Abrams told the crowd at the Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago.

    So while it's still unclear why, exactly, Leia and Rey are sharing this particular moment, we know that it's not just a tacked-on deleted scene. Whatever it was that prompted this embrace in the Episode VII script changed the course of Episode IX's story, one way or another, meaning Fisher had a posthumous influence on the direction of the Star Wars universe - a fitting tribute to the legendary Leia. Keep watching the video to see the small details you missed in the Star Wars Episode IX trailer!

          I hope the Death Star is the second one, on Endor. All that burning wreckage falling from orbit would be catastrophic to Endor. it would perfectly fit the darker tone of the movies if that blasted waste was the fallout of the hubris of the warring powers. Both new trilogy movies focused heavily on the way galactic war impacts the small people. the main characters are all nobodies with little jobs. Even the main villain, Kylo Ren, is humanized, and even ridiculed in a way that previous villains never were. Shining a light on how glorious space war has ruined the Ewoks planet is a pretty strong metaphor.

              I don't know about anyone else, but I want to see star wars more than Endgame: Surprisingly, considering how I think there should only be 6 Star Wars movies, not 9...well technically 12, now 13 if you count Rogue One and Solo. But i've seen them all so I want to see all, so I want to see how the saga ends.
              I thought Star Wars was about Anakin becoming good (star wars 1). Anakin becoming evil (2-3). Then Anakin's redemption (5-6). Period. Now there's this crap about his grandkid. Really? I mean It's not fun when he's not in it.

                I like star wars 3 and star wars 6. Star Wars 3 because you see how Anakin becomes evil (sounds mean I know. He kills people, blah blah blah). But then there's star wars 6 where you see how Anakin becomes good.

                            What’s cloud citiehy and legasehea ? ! I digress -Everyone is getting the title wrong . The rise of skywalker will tell the story of the creation of anakin skywalker not the rising of Luke or Ben or even Rey.

                                      I saw pieces of the Death Star. one looked like the curved piece that we see in Star Wars IX:RISE OF SKYWALKER. I also saw other pieces remaining only one was curved but all pieces were on the same planet it was one of endors moons or endor itself so this is proof the second Death Star was what people see in Star Wars IX:RISE OF SKYWALKER’s trailer

                                                For those who dont know the books, Ben is Lukes son, not Hans. Han and Leia had twins though, a brother and sister, and the brother did turn dark with the sister having to bring him down. With the way they are reusing old formula, it would not surprise me if they did pull another twins separated at birth routine to put Rey into the bloodline. Even without it Ben IS still of the bloodline through Leia. My guess would also be that either Palpatines force ghost, or a holocron is in that death star wreckage.

Like Luke was Luke Larrs hiding his Skywalker heritage, when the ugnaughts and prob Lobot recovered the Skywalker Sabre and prob Lukes hand on Cloud city, the Sabre was smuggled out but the Empire took control of the City. Palpy learned secrets of life and death, and made a clone of Luke that IS Rey, so her vision in cave is she is her own parent, and Luke's sister and daughter (which explains her natural race memory to fly vehicles, and why the Sabre is atuned to her more than Ben who forsake his Skywalker heritage). The laugh is from a databank on the Death Star that R2 or BB plugs into and finds datatape holocron whatever of Palpatine explaining his use of Plageuis teachings to create his own "Skywalker." Some defectors from Empire took Rey hid her on Jakku (parallel to ANH) and gave piece of map from Imperial Databanks to Max Von Sydow as connection to "find" her teacher.

                                                                      SO pile on. Just my idea. I would NOT like Sheev to be alive because I think it undoes power of what Anakin did to save his son.

                                                                      And BTW, the BEST ending, as someone who started this journey at age 7, would be to see ALL the force ghosts of the Jedi at the end looking on in satisfaction (hundreds maybe) on say Rey Skywalker, her Saber, and pledge to teach the Balance of the Whills (maybe Skywalker becomes a title vs "Jedi"?) to new generation. - Fade out - John Williams score.

                                                                                i figured out how disney can save the franchise. that laugh at the end wasnt the emperor, it was the sith lord that trained him..

                                                                                jar jar binks

                                                                                but my guess is that skywalker is kylo ren, as he is presumably the last heir of skywalker. kylo changed his name from ben solo when he rejected his father who he later killed. as he idolizes darth vader, he may take the name skywalker as a mantle when he feels that he earned it. considering he killed snoke rather pathetically, & he should be aware that luke is gone now, he would feel unchallenged in his authority with the exception of the struggling resistance & that one girl. under this context, rise would mean victory or empowerment.
