The new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer is here. Just a couple of days on from its exclusive presentation at Disney’s D23 Expo, Lucasfilm has released a new look at the upcoming ninth episode of the epic space opera saga, which includes a montage-style look at the history of Star Wars, including the original, prequel, and sequel trilogies. That’s in line with how Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is being billed — as the conclusion to not just this new trilogy but the Skywalker saga on the whole. It also gives us a look at Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) new double-bladed red lightsaber, Naomi Ackie’s new character Jannah who appears with Finn (John Boyega), and some stunning visuals featuring Resistance and First Order ships.

A young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine opens the new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer, before we run through the days of Episode IV – A New Hope, through the events of Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, and end with the climactic happenings of Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. All of young Leia Organa, Han Solo, and Lando Calrissian can be glimpsed, in addition to the likes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and Emperor Palpatine. The trailer then quickly runs through Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Episode II – Attack of the Clones, and Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, before jumping into Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and Episode VIII – The Last Jedi.
