The “final” trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is coming on the next Monday Night Football, Lucasfilm has announced via Twitter. We also get a brief shot of Rey, Chewbacca, Finn and Poe in the Millennium Falcon:
Hoping for a non-square version of this shot before the actual trailer…
In the meantime, Lucasfilm PR’s Chris Argyropoulos comes through with the details. The trailer will drop at halftime, and tickets will go on sale immediately after the launch:
And the UK folks come through with a full screen version of the video clip:
And here’s another version, although it uses footage we’ve already seen:
Most of the Star Wars stuff you’ve already seen will be there on November 12 – plus at least one episode of The Mandalorian – but The Last Jedi, Solo and even The Rise of Skywalker will be coming within the “first year.” The new episodes of The Clone Wars will be coming in February (have we heard before that it’ll be 12 episodes?), but all the old episodes will be there, plus the complete run of Rebels and the first season of Resistance.
New shows on the service are expected to release episodes on a weekly basis.
The Last Jedi and Solo are currently on Netflix, under Disney’s old agreement with the veteran streaming service.
I have to admit I’ve found this year’s Force Friday offerings a little lackluster. Now granted, as longtime readers know, I’m no collector – but I do love me some unusual products, and we haven’t really seen any for The Rise of Skywalker – until today. And that is, the Star Wars x Le Creuset Collection.
When it was announced that Star Wars Resistance would end after only two seasons, fans were taken a bit bu surprise – but according to the higher ups, that was always the plan.
“We were using the movies as a guideline,” executive producer Brandon Auman explained. “We felt that Season 1 is like, you know, it all takes place on a planet then Season 2, it now takes place in space. And now it’s going to lead, boom, right into the last movie.”
Makes sense – it’s easy to forget that Resistance is only Lucasfilm Animation’s third show – and the first to deal primarily with movies that are still in production.
