Rey And Ren Face-off

A new poster for the upcoming Star Wars film The Rise Of Skywalker has been revealed at D23 in Anaheim.

It’s just one of many tidbits of news relating to the franchise recently, with a new Star Wars TV show being confirmed to join The Mandalorian, which will feature Ewan McGregor returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Yesterday, Disney revealed a new poster for Episode 9, which sees Rey and Kylo Ren doing battle. See it below:

The cast of the new movie joined JJ Abrams on the stage at the event in California and fans were treated to some footage which has yet to surface online.

The footage included a fleet of dozens of Star Destroyers in the atmosphere of a planet. With Rey and Kylo Ren appearing in a later scene, fighting on a downed ship in the middle of the ocean as waves crash around them. A shot happened at the end of the reel which pleased those in attendance, showing Rey wearing a dark hood, wielding a double-bladed red lightsaber.

I honestly can’t wait for this trilogy to expire. They had all the ingredients to do so much more, but what we actually got were a blown-up Death Star, some animals being saved, and displays of teen-angst between Rey and Ren. I mean, what story is being told? I feel nothing significant has happened, I know some people have died, but like this poster, those deaths feel cheap.

The Rise Of Skywalker is released this December.
