Watch the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The Skywalker saga that started more than 40 years ago in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope finally comes to an end, and the last trailer Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teases an epic conclusion. The trailer made its debut tonight during ESPN & # 39; s Monday Night Football game between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.


Landing a finale is often considered one of the most difficult things in Hollywood, whether it's a movie franchise or TV series. The Rise of Skywalker, who sees the final battle between the resistance and the first order, the story will give a meaningful end, according to director J.J. Abrams. “We went into this thing knowing it must be an end. We don't mess around, & # 39; Abrams told Weekly entertainment.

The Rise of Skywalker grabs a year after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Kylo Ren and Rey prepare for their final fight against each other, while other members of the resistance, including Poe Dameron, Finn and BB-8, fight for the future of the universe. The Rise of Skywalker also sees the return of more classic characters, including Palanine by Ian McDiarmid (whose iconic smile was heard at the end of the first trailer) and Lando Calrissian by Billy Dee Williams.

Tickets for the film, which will be released on December 20, are now for sale. AMC Theaters also offers a 27-hour marathon, with all nine films in the main trilogy (no Rogue One or Solo).
