Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Cast: Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher (archive footage) and Lupita Nyong’o.
The anticipated finale to the sequel trilogy of the new Star Wars movies finally drops this December. The saga that was started by George Lucas in 1977 will finally be coming to an end for the foreseeable future.
Trailers have teased at a lot to leave us all on the edge of our seats, and we will be going in with a lot of potential questions – How will the events of the previous film affect everyone? What will happen between Rey and Kylo Ren? What about that specific villain that has been teased on returning?
With some fans unhappy over the lack of answers given within The Last Jedi, the previous film in the series, we will have to hope that enough answers are given to sate the humungous fanbase and keep us talking until the current cast hand down the torch again to the next generation (If that even happens?)
For those wanting another fix in the Star Wars Universe, check out the Mandarlorian, which has been announced for Disney’s new subscription service. For this I will hope for the best, but prepare for a few major points to be deliberately kept vague or not addressed.
