Things Only True Fans Noticed In The Rise of Skywalker Trailer

  • Published: 13 April 2019
  • We're going to show you things only true fans noticed in The Rise of Skywalker trailer! Well, it's finally here: the trailer for the final installment of the Skywalker Saga. And with the trailer we finally get a title: The Rise of Skywalker. Considering that Luke Skywalker seemed to buy the moisture farm at the end of The Last Jedi, we can't help but wonder just which Skywalker is about to rise. We can only guess at what some of the scenes in this trailer might mean. But rest assured - a lack of actual knowledge never stopped us from speculating wildly about trailers before. Crack open your Wookieepedias, and dust off your holocrons - here are the small details you might've missed in the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

    After two mainline movies' worth of fans constantly wondering where smooth operator Lando Calrissian, played by BIlly Dee Williams, might be hiding, the teaser finally confirmed that he'll return in The Rise of Skywalker. And he's right back where fans last saw him 36 years ago at the end of Return of the Jedi, sitting in the pilot's seat of the Millennium Falcon and having a grand old time. His co-pilot this time out isn't rebel smuggler Nien Nunb - who incidentally is still active in the Resistance movement. Instead, it's none other than Chewbacca accompanying Lando on a jump through hyperspace. Where are they headed? A very brief shot of a battle scene looks like it may take place in Lando's old stomping grounds, Cloud City.

    Of course, fans have seen Lando in a movie since Jedi: 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story, where he was portrayed by Donald Glover instead of Williams. Interestingly, Williams seems to be wearing the same, or at least a very similar, yellow-and-black costume as the one Glover wore in the prequel. Perhaps he's trying to recapture the swashbuckling days of his youth? Or maybe it's just so newer fans will recognize him.

    Arguably the most touching moment in the first teaser for The Rise of Skywalker is the brief shot of Leia and Rey embracing in a forest-like setting. A single tear runs down's Rey’s cheek as Luke's voiceover intones, "We'll always be with you." While the in-universe context for this heartfelt hug is still unknown, we do know that scenes featuring the late Carrie Fisher in The Rise of Skywalker are actually unused clips from The Force Awakens.

    Much to the relief of Fisher fans worldwide, Lucasfilm announced in July 2018 that her character would not be controversially resurrected via CGI, like Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin in 2016's Rogue One. Instead, Abrams and his team would find a way to work with a number of scenes that had gone unused from Episode VII, as director J.J. Abrams told the crowd at the Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago.

    So while it's still unclear why, exactly, Leia and Rey are sharing this particular moment, we know that it's not just a tacked-on deleted scene. Whatever it was that prompted this embrace in the Episode VII script changed the course of Episode IX's story, one way or another, meaning Fisher had a posthumous influence on the direction of the Star Wars universe - a fitting tribute to the legendary Leia. Keep watching the video to see the small details you missed in the Star Wars Episode IX trailer!

    Don’t see how this movie can do a proper ending with such limited time. Gonna be cluttered with flashbacks and confusion.

            i wont start moaning about this chapter before i see it, i just hope it really offers something special which is the expected of any Starwars film, But to put them so far into compasinon for myself i have watched the original trilogy i would say close on 50 times and not bored, the prequels around 5 - 6 times but the latter 2 being ep7 and 8 i have watched them 3 and 1 times. Rogue one i watched once and if i haveto be honest i cant say i was overly impressed with that despite others enjoying it which they are welcome to do so ofcourse, Solo i havent even seen it or have no desire to waste an evening in doing so. So please please please get the train back on track with this instalment or thats the end of Starwars for me ( not that Disney will care) and i would wish you called it a day with them Mr Disney.

                I like the analogy of trilogy ending titles. Could very well be a new "title". I look forward to see it. As an original fan, the cutesy stuff has always been there in some way. Jawas, mouse droids, C-3PO, ewoks, Jar-Jar, and now pogs. However, in every movie, there has been a strong message of war is hell. People die. Every single movie has it. All of them have spurred the actions of others later or immediately. All of them. Some are just heartbreaking (the younglings, for example).

                      true fans did not see the trailer and have retreated back to the safety of the classic trilogy where they can enjoy real star wars for the rest of their lives with other true fans who respect skywalker

                        Think you missed that the ship flying into the blue lit city at night is the same ship that dropped Rey off on Jakku. The other thing true fans would have noticed is the lack of one major character missing from the trailer: R2-D2. He is nowhere to be seen. You see 3PO, BB8 and DO more than once but not one shot of R2.

                              9:33  Rey probably killed several people when she dropped those boulders.

                                Doesn’t have to be the rise of a good Skywalker. Maybe the bad guys win.

                                    Won't be seeing Ep9, but The Mandalorian looks promising with actual sentient beings writing the story.

                                            It's not an A wing in trailer ( seen twice... once swooping down over terrain at night and 2nd time in battle  )  as it looks more like THE GHOST from Rebels OR alternatively  it is the ship from THE FORCE AWAKENS when Rey has a flashback as a child as she looks on as the same ship flies off into space ( she assumes with her parents /family onboard ) while holding the hand of Simon Peg's character... UNKAR PLUTT

                                              I don't care. I'm not watching an action movie about a tiny bony girl. It's absurd.

                                                Rey didn’t even turn on the Anakin’s lightsaber correctly. The switch is way lower.

                                                        I hope the Death Star is the second one, on Endor. All that burning wreckage falling from orbit would be catastrophic to Endor. it would perfectly fit the darker tone of the movies if that blasted waste was the fallout of the hubris of the warring powers. Both new trilogy movies focused heavily on the way galactic war impacts the small people. the main characters are all nobodies with little jobs. Even the main villain, Kylo Ren, is humanized, and even ridiculed in a way that previous villains never were. Shining a light on how glorious space war has ruined the Ewoks planet is a pretty strong metaphor.

But i've seen them all so I want to see all, so I want to see how the saga ends.
                                                            I thought Star Wars was about Anakin becoming good (star wars 1). Anakin becoming evil (2-3). Then Anakin's redemption (5-6). Period. Now there's this crap about his grandkid. Really? I mean It's not fun when he's not in it.

                                                                              • Nathaniel DuSauzay-Mccoll

I also saw other pieces remaining only one was curved but all pieces were on the same planet it was one of endors moons or endor itself so this is proof the second Death Star was what people see in Star Wars IX:RISE OF SKYWALKER’s trailer

Han and Leia had twins though, a brother and sister, and the brother did turn dark with the sister having to bring him down. With the way they are reusing old formula, it would not surprise me if they did pull another twins separated at birth routine to put Rey into the bloodline. Even without it Ben IS still of the bloodline through Leia. My guess would also be that either Palpatines force ghost, or a holocron is in that death star wreckage.
