The news is out. The final episode of the Star Wars nine-film arc will be titled The Rise of Skywalker.
The teaser (and the title!) for Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker debuted this afternoon at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, giving fans our first look at the conclusion of the Skywalker saga, and our first glimpse was a thing of beauty. From Rey igniting her mended lightsaber to face off against a TIE fighter chasing her in the desert to Lando Calrissian back at the helm of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the short teaser had us cheering, gasping, and will keep us talking.What that title means to the story is up to our imaginations (and will be the subject of endless speculation on the internet) until the movie hits theaters in December.
