'Star Wars Episode IX' Trailer Gives Fans First Look at 'The Rise of Skywalker'

By

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode IX just dropped and there was a whole panel about it that revealed the title of the film along with a synopsis as to what fans will expect in the film.

It was a heck of a way to launch the Star Wars celebration in Chicago, with tons of fans eager to learn more about the movie.

But most of all, everyone in attendance was eager to see one thing:

The Star Wars Episode 9 Trailer

The video begins with a shot of Rey (Daisy Ridley) standing in the desert, the text, "Every generation has a legend" appears on screen. Longtime fans of the series might recall this same verbage from the original trailer for The Phantom Menace.

Soon audiences are presented with an inkling that Rey could still be talking with Luke Skywalker, somehow. If you watched The Last Jedi (SPOILER ALERT) you may find this a bit odd, seeing as Luke kinda went and disintegrated, becoming one with the force.

"We have passed on all we know, a thousand generations live in you now. But this is your fight," Luke says in the trailer. Then we cut to a scene of Rey gripping a blue lightsaber, and jumping onto what appears to be Kylo Ren's TIE ship. We don't get to see whether or not he's in the pilot's seat, however.
