D23 Expo 2019: Description of New The Rise of Skywalker Footage Shown

Lucasfilm delighted audience members at D23 Expo 2019 during the Walt Disney Studios panel with not only a new poster for The Rise of Skywalker, but new footage from the film as well. /Film was at the panel and provides readers with a breakdown of the content that was shown in the video segment. Check out the intro to their article copied below and then take the supplied source link for the details.

According to Entertainment Weekly, this footage will be posted online on Monday via the official Star Wars YouTube Channel (we assume) like it did for The Force Awakens at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 and for The Last Jedi at D23 Expo 2017.

Every Star Wars film – yes, even the Star Wars Holiday Special – has been leading to this moment. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will usher in the end of the Skywalker Saga, concluding what George Lucas started in 1977. The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams returns to close things out, with new generation stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac all bringing their characters’ stories to a close. Also back: the late Carrie Fisher, who will appear here through unused footage from the previous two Star Wars films.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker footage was revealed at D23, and our own Peter Sciretta was there. Needless to say, what they showed to the audience was pretty mind-blowing. Here’s what you need to know.
