WATCH: The Newest Star Wars Easter Egg Extravaganza

Rey, Kylo, Poe, C-3PO, etc., etc., return for the conclusion of the Skywalker saga in Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams’s new sci-fi action-adventure coming December 20, 2019.

Your regularly scheduled obligatory 2019 Star Wars film has horfed up a new trailer! See Rey run. See Rey jump. See Rey shatter a statue with the help of Kylo Ren. Reylo confirmed? Throughout the trailer, Rey dramatically traverses multiple planets including a very familiar forest (Endor, anyone?) and an ice…disc? Star destroyers rise, Rey fights Kylo in the ruins of the Death Star throne room, Admiral Ackbar’s son Aftab joins the resistance; there’s enough fodder for diehard Star Wars nerds (I mean fans) to speculate upon for months to come. Just don’t talk to us about C-3PO’s goodbye. How can J.J. Abrams play with our emotions like that? At least R2 seems happy.

Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams join forces once again to take viewers on an epic journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the riveting conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, where new legends will be born and the final battle for freedom is yet to come.

The film stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, and Billy Dee Williams.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Abrams and Michelle Rejwan. Callum Greene, Tommy Gormley and Jason McGatlin serve as executive producers. The film was written by J.J. Abrams & Chris Terrio and opens in U.S. theaters on December 20, 2019.
