The Rise of Skywalker Bonus Content Videos: Adam Driver’s Training, Creating That Massive Fleet

With the home media release (via digital download to start) for The Rise of Skywalker only one short week away, preview videos containing content from the film’s bonus content have continued to trickle out. The latest bonus content clips focus on the training Adam Driver went through in portraying Kylo Ren one last time on the big screen and how the visual effects crew developed that giant group of ships that answers the Resistance’s call for help above Exegol during the film’s final battle.

The YouTube video featured above centering around Driver was courtesy of IGN.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arrives on digital platforms on March 17 and on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on March 31. This clip is from the Blu-ray and digital bonus feature “The Skywalker Legacy” showcases the training of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren.

You can check out the fleet video at io9’s website here which is exclusive to the Target edition of Episode IX.

Did you know that not only does the finale of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker have cameos of ships from animated series Rebels, Resistance, Clone Wars, and the theme park ride Star Tours, but 55 newly designed ships? That’s one of several brand new revelations in the above clip, which io9 is excited to exclusively debut from the home release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, out on Blu-ray March 31 and digital March 17.

The clip is from “A Final Alliance,” a piece of bonus content exclusive to the Target edition of The Rise of Skywalker. The Target edition also comes with a limited edition filmmaker gallery book, Wal-mart has limited edition packaging, and Best Buy has not only a limited edition steelbook, but the 9-Movie Skywalker Saga Collector’s Edition. All editions will feature the highly anticipated feature-length documentary, The Skywalker Legacy, as well as five other documentary featurettes.

We love this clip though. Especially the fact that it confirms that the Disney ride, Star Tours, whose recent update took place in this scene, is in fact in the movie as well.
