If, like me, you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat to see the first trailer for Star Wars Episode 9, then wait no more!
At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on Friday, the trailer was finally released to the masses, and I have to say it was well worth the wait!
Check it out here –
So what have we learnt from the trailer?
Well, apart from it already looking like it’s going to be WAY better than The Last Jedi (fingers crossed anyway!) we see that Lando is back, Rey is taking on a Tie-Fighter on foot, and the group are investigating a planet that part of second Death Star crashed onto after it was destroyed in Return of the Jedi.
And that laugh at the end?
Palpatine is back baby!
Whether or not this is a good thing, remains to be seen, as it’s still not 100% clear if Snoke is going to make some sort of return. If he doesn’t, and they’re just replacing him with The Emperor, then I think it’s a complete waste. Jamming in an old character for nostalgic purposes is definitely NOT the way to go. Snoke to me, was a huge opportunity for the Star Wars Universe to be able to move on from Palpatine, with a more mysterious, and dare I say, more powerful character in Snoke.
Let’s hope they don’t waste the opportunity.
Star Wars 9, The Rise of Skywalker is out in December 2019.
