Daisy Ridley's Rey Featured in New Photo From Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Lucasfilm has shared a new photo from Star Wars: The Rise of Sakwalker. It features Daisy Ridley’s Rey with an intense look and ready to fight while holding her lightsaber in a backwards position. The question is… who or what is she staring down?

The image was posted on Twitter and it came with the caption, "Something inside me has always been there. But now it's awake."

With this being the Star Wars movie that closes out the Skywalker saga, of course I’m excited and curious to see how director J.J. Abrams’ ends it! Hopefully he pulls off something completely unexpected that is going to blow audiences away. If his ending isn’t mind-blowing, you know the fans are going to be pissed. Do you think he’ll pull it off?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker rumours on The Emperor’s master plan and Rey’s surname

Warning: Potential spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker follow…

While any and all specifics about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are being kept securely under lock and key by Disney and Lucasfilm, we do know that the Sith Lord Darth Sidious is set to factor into Episode IX in some way, shape or form – and now if a new rumour is to be believed, we may know what the Emperor is scheming in this final chapter of the Skywalker Saga.

According to a report from Making Star Wars, Palpatine will appear early on in the film, revealing to Kylo Ren that he wants the former Ben Solo to rule the galaxy as Emperor along with Rey as his Empress. The duo are said to represent both the negative and positive aspects of the force, which – when combined – will allow Palpatine to be rejuvenated, returning him to his full strength.

Cancelled Star Wars convention panel prompts speculation about Hayden Christensen appearance in The Rise of Skywalker

A report is circulating online which claims that Disney was responsible for the last minute cancellation of a panel featuring Star Wars’ Ian McDiarmid and Hayden Christensen at the FanX convention in Salt Lake City this past weekend.

The Mouse House is alleged to have threatened the organisers with legal action should the panel take place and lead to the reveal of any Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker details, which – as you might expect – has now ramped up speculation that Hayden Christensen may be set to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker in Episode IX.

As we already know, The Emperor will be present in the new film in some capacity, and given that The Rise of Skywalker is being billed as the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga, it seems logical that the film could – or perhaps even should – make an appearance too.

The panel cancellation certainly seems

Disney & Lucasfilm Kick Off 100 Day Countdown to The Rise of Skywalker

  • MovieWeb
Let the countdown begin, as we're 100 days away from The Rise of Skywalker. Lucasfilm has officially kicked off the countdown, with a teaser that focuses on the duel between Kylo Ren and Rey, which we saw in the recently released trailer from D23. The brief teaser was shared with the following caption.

"100 days until the saga ends... #TheRiseOfSkywalker is in cinemas 19 December!"

The Rise of Skywalker arrives in the U.K. on December 19, whereas it officially rolls out nationwide in the U.S. on December 20. However, given the popularity of Thursday night preview screenings, the movie will essentially be making its way to theaters on the evening of the 19th domestically. So, either way, we're at that 100-day countdown. And, even though the conclusion to this sequel trilogy is just over the horizon, we're still left with a great many questions and precious few answers. How will the Skywalker saga conclude?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker main trailer classified by the BBFC

After teasing fans with the release of a sizzle reel during last month’s D23 Expo, it seems that Disney and Lucasfilm are gearing up to give us our best look yet at December’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with the impending launch of the main trailer.

As reported by Dark Horizons, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has rated the new trailer, dubbed ‘Trailer C’, which has been given a 12A certificate and runs for 2 minutes and 16 seconds.

Both the main trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi were released in October so it stands to reason that The Rise of Skywalker could follow suit by dropping the trailer next month; however, given this classification, there’s certainly a chance it may be with us earlier than that.

J.J. Abrams says Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was the most challenging project of his career

J.J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, says that the film and finishing the saga was the most challenging thing he has ever worked on.

With any Star Wars project, there is huge pressure placed on the creatives, this is doubly true for theatrical movies. The task for J.J. Abrams is even more daunting as he needs to finish off the entire Skywalker saga.

Speaking to The Star Wars Show, director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker revealed the challenge of making the movie, acknowledging what a massive moment this is for the franchise:

“It’s been a gift to work with these people again. To get to deal with these characters again. I didn’t think that was going to happen for me. This ending, which is such an important thing for all of us, by far, has been the most challenging thing I’ve ever worked on.

John Williams, the legendary composer of countless iconic scores for some of the biggest franchises in cinema, is returning one last time to score the final chapter in Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Williams recently talked about the ending to The Rise of Skywalker during one of his concerts where he claimed fans will love how the entire saga is set to wrap up the storyline of the Skywalker heritage.

J.J. Abrams says Star Wars: The Last Jedi “didn’t really derail” his original Sequel Trilogy plans

While Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi came under heavy fire for its treatment of Luke Skywalker, the middle chapter of Disney and Lucasfilm’s Sequel Trilogy was also criticised for abandoning the plot threads laid out by J.J. Abrams in Star Wars: The Force Awakens – namely the mystery behind Supreme Leader Snoke, and the identity of Rey’s parents.

Following the departure of Colin Trevorrow from the director’s chair on Episode IX, Abrams now finds himself back in the saddle to finish up the trilogy with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the filmmaker has admitted that The Last Jedi “didn’t really derail” anything he’d originally intended for the Sequels:

“The story that we’re telling, the story that we started to conceive when we did The Force Awakens, was allowed to continue,” said Abrams. “Episode VIII didn’t

Anthony Daniels teases the emotional final scene he shot as C-3Po in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

It looks like Anthony Daniels’ days as C-3Po are coming to an end and the actor has teased the final scene he shot for the saga in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

C-3Po is one of Star Wars’ most iconic characters and Anthony Daniels has played the character ever since 1977. But with the Skywalker saga coming to an end with Episode IX, the actor behind C-3Po was quite emotional for his final scene.

Speaking to Variety about the character’s final scene, Daniels said: “It was difficult not to tear up a bit. Partly because J.J. [Abrams] said some really nice things and all the crew were listening and watching. I have to admit it was an emotional moment, but I knew it was coming. It wasn’t even a scene in which I said anything. For once, Threepio was in a scene without butting in.

J.J. Abrams on whether Kylo Ren is beyond redemption in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

J.J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, has addressed if Kylo Ren is beyond redemption.

There are many questions that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be able to answer and one of them is if Kylo Ren is beyond redemption. The villain has done some truly heinous things in the trilogy so far but is it possible that he is still brought back to the light?

One person who would know is director J.J. Abrams and he discussed with MTV what lies ahead, as well as commenting on Adam Driver’s performance as the villain: “I will say that with an actor like Adam Driver, you can never limit what that man can do. I will say, without talking about redemption or not, that he is mind-blowing in this. He’s brought a whole other level to this, so I can’t wait

J.J. Abrams teases Emperor Palpatine’s return in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

J.J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, has teased the return of the saga’s main villain, Emperor Palpatine.

Palpatine has been the arch-foe of our heroes throughout the Skywalker saga, manipulating events and causing destruction throughout both the original and prequel trilogies. And now we know with The Rise of Skywalker, the emperor will be returning once more – he even takes pride of place in the film’s poster.

Why he is back or what he is up to, we don’t know just yet but director J.J. Abrams has teased Darth Sidious’ return and his importance to the film in a recent interview with MTV: “I will say that that’s part of what the story is, and also, I will say that with the Emperor around, he’s not going to be your, you know, the cuddly pal. I can’t

Daisy Ridley teases that Dark Rey is real in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Daisy Ridley, one of the stars of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, has teased that Dark Rey may actually be real.

As soon as people saw Rey appear with her double-sided red lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teaser, most assumed that the image was probably from a vision of some sort – that Rey won’t actually be turning to the dark side in Episode IX.

But is there a chance she actually could? Well, in a recent interview with Yahoo, actress Daisy Ridley teased that the clip might be more reliable than first thought: “I mean, the evidence is on the screen. Take that evidence as you will. But there’s no smoke without fire.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean she’s definitely going to turn but it does suggest that something dark and twisted might be emerging in Rey during the course of the movie.
