Let the countdown start, as we’re 100 days away from The Rise of Skywalker. Lucasfilm has formally kicked off the countdown, with a teaser that focuses on the duel between Kylo Ren and Rey, which we noticed within the not too long ago launched trailer from D23. The transient teaser was shared with the next caption.
“100 days till the saga ends… #TheRiseOfSkywalker is in cinemas 19 December!”
The Rise of Skywalker arrives within the U.Okay. on December 19, whereas it formally rolls out nationwide within the U.S. on December 20. Nonetheless, given the recognition of Thursday evening preview screenings, the film will primarily be making its solution to theaters on the night of the 19th domestically. So, both approach, we’re at that 100-day countdown. And, though the conclusion to this sequel trilogy is simply over the horizon, we’re nonetheless left with an ideal many questions and valuable few solutions. How will the Skywalker saga conclude? Is it attainable to satisfyingly wrap up greater than 4 a long time of storytelling in a single film?
What we all know for certain is that J.J. Abrams is again on the helm for this installment. Abrams was recruited by Disney following the $four billion buy of Lucasfilm to direct what would turn out to be The Pressure Awakens. Few popular culture occasions have ever generated that stage of hype that Episode VII managed to, and few motion pictures have ever generated such success on the field workplace, because the long-awaited return to a galaxy far, far-off generated greater than $2 billion worldwide. As soon as Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) was fired from Episode IX, it made each little bit of sense to show again to Abrams in order that he may end what he began.
But, lots has modified in the previous few years. Rian Johnson took over to put in writing and direct Star Wars Episode VIII, which we now know as The Final Jedi. Whereas a significant business success, the center entry on this trilogy stays divisive amongst the fanbase. A small but vocal contingent has made issues notably ugly for the reason that film’s launch. In any occasion, Lucasfilm now has the distinctive problem of making an attempt to please each those that preferred The Final Jedi, and those that did not. Bringing any story to an in depth is difficult, however this comes with added problem.
