Movie of The Week: Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker

Initial release: December 2019 (Belgium)

The first footage from Star Wars: Episode IX was finally revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2019, and we also finally got the closely guarded title of the film: The Rise of Skywalker. Since then, fans all over the internet have analyzed every scrap of footage over and over again for clues about the film’s plot. As straightforward as much of the teaser trailer seems to be, we also know that this is a J.J. Abrams film, and J.J. Abrams loves to preserve mystery. 

That means that even though we think we understand what we’re seeing and hearing in many of the teaser’s scenes, the final film might present something very different from the conclusions we’ve drawn. That could mean that footage is edited or certain way, or digitally altered, or just presented in a context that doesn’t allow us to see the bigger picture. With that in mind, it’s time to talk about all of the possibilities contained in this footage, and all the ways in which we could be deceived by it.

The trailer for The Rise of Skywalker begins with an instantly unforgettable sequence in which Rey (Daisy Ridley) stands alone on a desert planet (which could be a new planet or a familiar one) and waits as a First Order fighter approaches. When it enters her path, she ignites her lightsaber, then runs until she’s between its wings, and leaps. The implication here is that she’s preparing to cut the ship in two with her blade aimed right for the cockpit, and the even deeper implication is that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is the pilot of the ship.

  1. I have observed that online degree is getting favorite because accomplishing your college degree online has changed into a popular selection for many people. A lot of people have not really had an opportunity to attend a normal college or university but seek the increased earning possibilities and career advancement that a Bachelor’s Degree affords. Still other folks might have a college degree in one discipline but would choose to pursue something they now develop an interest in.
