  • Published on Apr 14, 2019
  • Star Wars Episode 9 THE RISE OF SKYWALKER released its first teaser trailer, filled with mysterious clues pointing to Star Wars history -- Emperor Palpatine, the Death Star, Leia, and Lando Calrissian! Erik Voss breaks down all the details you missed in this latest Star Wars trailer from director JJ Abrams, returning from The Force Awakens, taking back the reigns after The Last Jedi. Why is Kylo Ren repairing his broken mask? What do Rey, Poe, and Finn want from the ruins of the Death Star? How will the film depict Leia after Carrie Fisher's death? How could Force Ghosts play a key role in this story? And what does the title "The Rise of Skywalker" secretly mean?

    Most likely “skywalker” refers to their hope that fans will return despite the character assassination of Luke. I won’t.

    I always thought that it might be kinda cool if somehow Rey was Anakin's illegitimate daughter!

    This ytilogy was ruined by kathleen kennedy and Disney. Don't be fooled into going to see this hack of a movie that is nothing more than "WOKE ASS" propaganda.

    In the Throne book, Thrawn: Alliances (which is Cannon), Thrawn informs Lord Vader that the force sensitive Chiss childern are given the name which translates to "Sky Walker". For the mass amount of people who didn't read the book.

    The Dark Side is just an infection in the Force. That is why Darth Plagus the "Wise" was able to "bring people back". He actually infected his apprentice when he was killed in his sleep, and then infected Sidius' master, then Darth Sidius, then Anakin, then Snoke, then Kylo. Plagus, plague, virus, infection.
    At least, that's MY favorite theory

    Lost a chance to change colour of lightsaber and make Anakins defunkt.
    All they had to do when Rey lit the lightsaber was make it YELLOW and hey presto - more squillions in the bank for corporate a-holes.

    i agree rise of skywalker might be a reference to rise of the skywalker knights order instead of continuing to be called jedi's

    Somebody probably already said this, but I think General Hux is a Sith Lord. I believe he has been playing weak until this movie and will reveal himself. That would be the rule of two Ren and Hux.

    If the piece of the Death Star is from the Death Star 2, it could have fallen onto the planet that Endor orbits as Endor is only Moon

    I think the lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker is more important than people think.
    Rey keeps the saber because its possibly a force holocron containing the remnant memories of Anakin himself.
    And Sith will either be a force ghost or a clone as he was in the expanded universe.

    Can’t rise also mean fall/sacking. So could the title be a mislead mean the fall of skywalker. It would be the rhyme to the “win” of the lightside in return of the Jedi, a loss.
