Sheldon and the gang are probably dissecting the trailer of ‘Star Wars: The rise of Skywalker’ shot by shot now. Yes! The wait is finally over. The third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy has hit the internet and sent it into a tizzy.
Produced, co-written, and directed by J. J Abrams, the movie will hit the big screens on 20th December 2019 in the United States. The movie picks up one year later after the events that transpired in ‘The Last Jedi’ (2017). The Rise of Skywalker will see the Resistance face the First Order once more, and the end of the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith.
The sequel trilogy successfully took off with ‘The Force Awakens’ which released in 2015. ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ will see Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and Ian McDiarmid, and yes, Carrie Fisher in a posthumous role.
Chir Terrio, who co-wrote with Abrams said that the movie will explore the complicated dynamic between Daisy Ridley’s Rey and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren.
The Academy Award winner screenwriter said, “Some of the most interesting scenes in ‘The Last Jedi’ are the conversations between Rey and Ren.”
“We’ve tried to pick up that complicated relationship that really has been present ever since the interrogation in ‘Episode VII.’ When Ren takes off his mask, there’s a nakedness about him with Rey that he doesn’t express to anyone else. Rian [Johnson] developed that in fascinating ways and we’ve been able to develop it even further.”
We know what we are doing for Christmas!
And in the wise words of Obi-Wan “The Force will be with you. Always.”
