Today, Director/Writer J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy were joined by stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Naomi Ackie, Joonas Suotamo and Anthony Daniels, and droids BB-8 and D-0, for a panel discussion at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, moderated by Stephen Colbert.
It was a day of surprises at Star Wars Celebration for the enthusiastic fans in attendance as the title of the final installment of the Skywalker saga was also revealed, STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, and along with the first trailer for the film a brand-new teaser poster!
Below you will find images as well as the teaser for SKYWALKER which shows Rey with her lightsaber in a desert preparing to take on a mysterious ship. Who is maning that ship is to be determined but it looks like Rey would have no problem taking it down. The teaser also revealed the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian as well as an emotional scene with Carrie Fischer. All familiar faces have returned and we are left with a voiceover of some unseen character laughing and not because someone has cracked a joke. Who that person is, we have yet to be told, but I think it’s fair to say that a fight is on the horizon.
STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER arrives in U.S. theaters on December 20th.
