So the Star Wars Episode 9 trailer is finally here and the subtitle for this one is: “The Rise of Skywalker”. Interesting.
As usual the trailer is full secrecy and mysteries that will get people talking and debating. JJ Abrams is the master at making movie trailers for that reason alone. Not bad for a trailer that’s only two minutes.
Some of you may ask, who’s the voice over? It can’t be Kylo Ren ’cause Adam Driver’s voice is a lot deeper. It can’t be Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker ’cause it doesn’t sound like Hamill’s voice at all. Who does that voice remind you of? That’s right… it sounds almost an exact match as Master Palpatine and that’s who the voice is. It is Ian McDiarmid’s voice for sure so this probably means that Ian reprises his role as Palpatine? That’s what it’s looking like.
It’s also looking like that Darth Vader is making a return too. Is that who is flying that huge Tie Fighter going after Rey as she stands there and waits for it? If you watch the trailer, it very briefly showed the inside of the tie fighter with an unknown person holding the control yoke. You see someone’s hands with big black rubber gloves controlling the yoke. I immediately thought of Vader. There were talks in the past of bringing Vader back somehow and I wouldn’t be surprised that’s who it is.
Some of you may ask, how is it possible for Vader to come back when he died in “Return of the Jedi”? Hmmmmm… interesting thought but keep in mind that this is science fiction and anything is possible.
Another thought that now that Palpatine is back, it’s possible that he created another Vader, a different one. This time Luke Skywalker is the new Vader. Luke Skywalker turns evil and joins the Dark Side, imagine that??? That could be a possibility too and it’ll be an interesting turn if they go that direction.
Some other thoughts on the trailer, looks like Lando and Chewie flying the Falcon again like the good ol’ days. I kind of predicted that would happen and looks like Leia would make an appearance too.
Some of you may ask, would Luke Skywalker return for this one? I think it’s a possibility ’cause like I said above, he could turn into the Dark Side after what happened to him in “The Last Jedi”. There is a reason this movie is subtitled “The Rise of Skywalker” so it could be referring to either Luke or Anakin. My bets is that it’s probably Luke.
Also toward the end of the trailer, you see Rey and her friends looking at some debri across a body of water. Well, that’s obviously parts of the death star from years ago… parts of the super laser from the Death Star.
It’s a great trailer and gave me goosebumps. I’m totally stoked for this one and will definitely be there in the theaters for this one. I’ve seen all the new Star Wars movies in theater so far including “Rogue One” and “A Solo Story”. I’m looking forward to this one for sure. I think Disney is doing a great job with the new Star Wars movies. Fuck the whiners and the crybabies!
