It has finally arrived. The Star Wars Episode IX teaser trailer is finally here and it is everything you could ever want. Watch it now before you read the spoilers.
The trailer is features full-on action scenes and gives us the first glimpse at Carrie Fisher’s posthumous return as the very much loved Leia.
After Luke Skywalker’s voice can be heard saying “No one’s ever really gone”, we immediately hear the sound of everbody’s favourite villian Palpatine laughing. Though he was slain by Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi, this trailer appears to be teasing the villain’s return. Actor Ian McDiarmid also made an appearance following the debut of the trailer at Star Wars Celebration, seemingly confirming the character’s return.
For the first time since 1983’s ‘Return of the Jedi,’ Billy Dee Williams returns as Lando Calrissian.
Details about the long-awaited final entry in the Skywalker saga have been nearly non-existent in the year and four months since Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Most notably, in 2017, Disney replaced its original Star Wars IX director Colin Trevorrow with J.J. Abrams, who directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
