Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker… And someone else?

Episode IX is The Rise of Skywalker we learned today at Celebration Chicago. Watch the trailer: 

The biggest surprise is something I don’t think anyone saw coming – PALPATINE is back… Somehow. We do see the ruins of a Death Star – could we be dealing with a Dagobah cave situation? Tune in in December, or well, let’s face it, the rest of the year. 

And yes, it was definitely our old pal Sheev – Ian McDiarmid appeared on stage here at Chicago to introduce the second run-through of the trailer with a “Roll it again.”

More from the panel at Twitter, though I won’t be speculating much. Look for that from EW, Mashable and io9.

  1. Well, well, well — it looks like Palpatine gets the last laugh.

    I’ll show myself out.
