The trailer for Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker showcases Daisy Ridley‘s Rey standing in the desert with a narration of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) telling her ”we’ve passed on all we know” and that the upcoming battle is her fight alone. A vehicle aggressively hovers toward Rey before she begins sprinting ahead of it and diving face-first toward its cockpit with her lightsaber in tow.
We then see some shots of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), the new Supreme Leader, aggressively slicing down a victim and catching him on his lightsaber’s hilt. We also see Rey reunite with General Leia (Carrie Fisher), a touching moment reflecting the tragic passing of the actor. Amongst shots of Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, and Billie Dee Williams‘ return as Lando, we get an ominous glimpse of a destroyed spacecraft out in the ocean before Hamill says ”no one’s ever really gone.” The screen then goes to black as an evil laugh reverberates.
Check out the trailer above and catch Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker when it hits theaters in December.
