Back in April, we got the first teaser clip for the upcoming “Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker” which will end the saga that began way back in 1977. I shared and discussed the teaser HERE for those who missed it. This past weekend was the D23 Fan Expo and a LOT was revealed such as this “Special Look” into the upcoming space sage. Let’s take a look.
The Premise: The remnants of the Resistance face the First Order once again—while reckoning with the past and their own inner turmoil. Meanwhile, the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaches its climax, altogether bringing the Skywalker saga to a definitive end.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I really liked this special look because of its walk through Star Wars history until we see some quick new footage, I don’t think we got all that much. I did like what I saw though and feel that this film will be miles better than “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” which as you know was very maligned and a divisive film among the fandom. I venture to guess that a longer trailer is still coming and with this being the final chapter of a saga we’ve watched for many years, I am hoping that I get to do a character poster narrative with all the wide and varied players we will find involved. This was both exciting and sad since we of course have the late great Carrie Fisher in this one and she is missed by all fans of the franchise. That’s all I have so what do you think? Chime in down below and stay tuned for more about this film as it comes to light.
