STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Reveals Its Box

Mark Hamill's Biggest Shock with The Force Awakens & His Pitch No One Wanted Star Wars to have a 'hiatus' after episode IX

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is due out December 20. And audiences got a tantalizing tease from another figure from the past: Emperor Palpatine from the original and prequel trilogies, whose ominous laugh closes out the promotional spot. Have you watched the new trailer for Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker? At the panel, host Stephen Colbert grilled Ackie on if she plays Lando's daughter, but she danced around the question, saying the notorious playboy could have children all around the galaxy.

Abrams confirmed that the film unfolds "some time" after the events of 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

"This movie is about the new generation and what they inherited, The Light and The Dark, and answer the question as they face the greatest evil, are they prepared?"

And a year ago, Abrams released a statement assuring fans they had no plans to recast Fisher's iconic character.

Carrie Fisher was, is, will always be irreplaceable. The Rise Of Skywalker is added. You'll most likely get to see the cast, which may include some or all of the returning actors.

Julian Assange extradition could take "months or years"
She said "we should listen to what he wants to do" but "we don't offer asylum to someone who's not asking for it". Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange could face a renewed investigation into an allegation of rape in Sweden.

Four years since the Force awoke in The Force Awakens, two years on from Luke Skywalker declaring that he would not be the last Jedi in The Last Jedi, we finally know the official title of Star Wars: Episode XI.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Hamill said: "I'm not gonna tell them how to run their business but is there a possibility of "Star Wars fatigue"?".

But we still had no idea what that meant exactly - would Leia appear on a screen somewhere, perhaps? No. The "Star Wars" universe as we know it is about to change forever.

The Rise of Skywalker also stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. So we said: 'What if we could write scenes about her so it's her performance?' Jon Favreau's limited series titled The Mandalorian - the first-ever live action Star Wars series - will premiere on Disney Plus at its launch. "The insane this is, emotionally, every day it hits me every day she's here but it's surreal because we're working with her still". The Star Wars family has denied this in the past, and in The Last Jedi, Kylo cruelly showed Rey that her parents were just regular people who abandoned her.
