As I expected The Rise of Skywalker just had a massive presence at D23 Expo and I can’t believe the info I’ve just read about the film. Before I get to that here’s the official teaser poster.
Yes, the teaser poster is just as perfect as I’d imagine but get this, a bit of the cast shared a few more tidbits about the characters they’ll be playing.
Keri Russel announced that her character Zorri Bliss is an old friend of Poe Dameron’s. John Boyega promises that the film will be “epic.” J.J Abrams assures people that Leia will have a powerful presence in this movie and is “the heart of this story.”
And then, just when I thought things couldn’t get any better; a bit of new footage was released for the film. Read this.
The group overlooks a small village. An army of ships in spaces. Rey cuts through trees. Kylo emerges from a ship. Rey and Kylo fight surrounded by water. Palpatine narrates — it nears its end” Rey is wearing a black robe — her red lightsaber splits in two, dual wielding like Darth Maul.
O. M. G!!!!!! This is freaking….I don’t know…this is exactly everything that I wanted and yet believed we would never get. Rey is going to turn evil. I can’t freaking believe it! This footage was only released for those at the conference but thankfully people were kind of enough to share it with us.
I can’t believe it! I can’t wait to see this in the official second trailer which will probably arrive this October. For now, I’m just going to figuratively scream in a corner somewhere.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day. May the Force be with us all.
