Star Wars Celebration is in full swing in Chicago this weekend, and just moments ago, the title of the franchise’s epic ninth installment was revealed!
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will hit theaters on December 20, 2019. The trailer — narrated by Luke Skywalker himself — promises to illustrate how “The saga comes to an end”.
Screenshots of the trailer show many familiar faces are returning, including Rey, Princess Leia (played by the late Carrie Fisher), BB-8, Chewie, and C3-PO.
No word on a plot line (of course), but you can rest assured that with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland on May 31 and at Walt Disney World on August 29, the fervor over the franchise will reach a fever pitch at the end of this year!
