The first look at the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode IX" film has arrived.
The trailer for the final movie, titled "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," was dropped at the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago on Friday. In attendance at the special event were director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy along with the movie's stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, and newbie Naomi Ackie.
"The Rise of Skywalker" is the third installment in the new trilogy series, which includes “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi.”
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) provided the narration for the short clip, telling Daisy Ridley's Rey that the knowledge of a thousand generations has been passed on. He added that this is her fight now.
Audiences also got to see a glimpse of the return of Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian and Carrie Fisher's Leia Organa. Unreleased footage, which Fisher shot for the previous movies, will reportedly be used after the actress' death in 2016.
The trailer ends with the ominous laughter of an old but familiar villain: Emperor Palpatine from the original and prequel trilogies.
“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hits theaters on Dec. 20.
