To go along with that jaw-dropping new poster revealed over the weekend, the sizzle reel footage for The Rise of Skywalker that was shown on Saturday during The Walt Disney Studios panel at D23 Expo 2019 is now available online for all Star Wars fans to enjoy.
Earlier summer seasons featured preview footage of the other films in the Sequel Trilogy with a BTS reel shown for The Force Awakens at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 followed by one for Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi during D23 Expo 2017.
The official cast for Episode IX was announced by Lucasfilm towards the end of July 2018. Cameras began to roll for the film on August 1 of 2018 with principal photography finishing up this past February resulting in one hell of a bittersweet moment for everyone involved with the film as well as fans across the global Star Wars community. Our first teaser trailer (and official title) for Episode IX landed back in April during Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019.
The Rise of Skywalker is set to close out the legendary Skywalker saga in December.
