During the Episode IX panel in the Star Wars Celebration, there were, of course, interviews with nearly all of the film’s most important characters and during this amazing panel, we were shown not only the teaser trailer and title of the film but also some thrilling photos that gave us deeper looks at the heroes. So, on that note, here are those fun pictures.
As Billy Dee Williams joined fellow Star Wars alumni, Anthony Daniels on stage we got to see the first look at an old Lando Calrissian and clearly, I got excited. Oh my goodness, he’s back! I almost can’t believe it. And he’s back to pilot the most wonderful ship in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon.
While Rose may not have made an appearance in the teaser we did get to see her during the panel in this fascinating picture. We get to see her in a new outfit that’s definitely an upgrade from the mechanic clothes she was wearing in The Last Jedi. It also seems that she’s got a new hairstyle which also is an evolution to her character. And on top of that, she’s sharing this picture with Rey! Oh my goodness, Rose and Rey, interacting, in one scene! I am totally freaking out (in a good way!)
Naomi Ackie is set to play a larger role than I expected in this film, for she was present at the Celebration to show off her new character, a young woman named Jannah. Rumors have surfaced on the web that she is going to be Lando’s daughter and while she didn’t confirm those reports she didn’t dispute those reports either, meaning that I’m almost certain that she is, indeed, Lando’s daughter.
And I mean, come on, she’s got a cape. Yeah, she’s definitely a Calrissian.
New Alien Alert!
It seems that, and this is actually from the movie (not rumored,) that Chewbacca is going to bring to the Resistance an alien buddy who knows the secret whereabouts of something valuable if I remember correctly. This alien supposedly is going to set in motion Rey, Finn, and Poe’s adventure that we got to see a bit of throughout the teaser trailer. Now, that sounds cool and all, but this alien looks, well, I don’t like it. I hope in the actual movie it’ll be cooler than it seems in photos.
Finn. Looks. AMAZING! Oh my goodness, the new outfit is perfect. I’m loving the blue bracers, I’m loving the new hairstyle with the baby locks swept back, I love the two backpacks, I mean, I’m just gushing with excitement seeing this picture.
I only have one thing to say about this picture; 😍.
Oh my gosh, Kylo Ren looks really, really bad. He’s clearly dirty for some reason but beyond just that, he looks so…mean. Like there’s no happiness left within him whatsoever. I hope he’s redeemed in some capacity in this film but he’s looking pretty villainous if you ask me.
Rey looks as awesome as ever in this beautiful jungle clad in this utterly pristine white. But what catches my eye the most in this picture is Rey’s new stick. What does it mean for Rey’s character and what is she going to do with it, only time will tell.
Finn and Poe
Finn and Poe have been the best of friends since they first met in The Force Awakens and now we finally get to see more time with them together. This photo was shared for us to see just to remind us of their incredible friendship and honestly, this may be my favorite photo that was shared. I can’t wait to see this scene play out in The Rise of Skywalker so I can see what Finn’s laughing about.
Rey in Action
And last but definitely not least we have Rey in action on some sort of vehicle. What I love about this is that Rey is still as versatile as ever. She’s not your traditional Jedi who only chooses to wield a lightsaber. She fights with everything; a blaster, her staff, and her lightsaber. She is a multi-faceted warrior and that’s yet another reason why I love her so much.
So, here are the pictures I was excited to share with you all. I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I did and I thank you for reading. Have a beautiful day and May the Force be with you.
