EPISODE IX TRAILER SHOWEN TO THE WORLD
The first of many news that came out of Star Wars Celebration was the world trailer of the new Star Wars movie that has an official title, and it’s “Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.” The whole trailer was great, a lot of things in this trailer will win over people and fans who dislike the last film and will be released this December. The biggest question that will have many fans and moviegoers wondering is this; Will Episode IX wrap up the ENTIRE saga that George Lucas started 40 years ago on a high note, or will it trip up at the finish line?
