Hot on the heels of Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, the final instalment of the Star Wars saga is set to launch at the end of this year. The trailer teases viewers with a starting scene in the desert. Rey (Daisy Ridley) stares down a First Order fighter coming right at her. One hears Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) voice tell her, “We’ve passed on all we know. A thousand generations live in your now, but this is your fight.” She then runs at it with her lightsaber, leaping to attack.
This isn’t the only new Star Wars release that fans have to look forward to this year. It has also been confirmed that the live-action TV show The Mandalorian will be available on the streaming service Disney+ when it launches on 12 November.
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker hits theatres on 19 December.
