We are only “13” days away from the opening of the highly anticipated film “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” and to say that it’s left me with a lot of items to share with you on our humble website would be an understatement. We’ve gotten a few trailers, and a bevy of TV Spots and even some character posters so far and I’m sure that some more is to come before the opening. If you’d like to see all of that stuff just click HERE to open up a new tab in your browser. Now it’s time to share the latest featurette from the film which is called “Friendship”. I’ll follow the footage with the premise, casting and the Official Theatrical Poster. Enjoy.
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: I don’t have too much more to add on this one but wow what a charming and endearing clip it is. Just something that reminds us all of the magic involved in a “Star Wars” film. Do you have your tickets yet? I admit that I do not but I am also not able to see this for a few days after it opens on 12/20. Let me know what you think about this featurette if you are inclined. We always love hearing from the readers. See you next time.
