The Skywalker saga that started more than 40 years ago in Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope is finally coming to an end, and the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teases an epic conclusion.
The trailer debuted tonight during ESPN’s Monday Night Football matchup between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets. Landing a finale is often considered one of the most difficult feats in Hollywood, whether it’s a film franchise or TV series. The Rise of Skywalker, which sees the final battle between the Resistance and the First Order, will give the story a meaningful end, according to director J.J. Abrams. “We went into this thing knowing it has to be an ending. We’re not screwing around,” Abrams told Entertainment Weekly.
