Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been revealed with a stunning trailer

In addition to hints gleaned from today’s world premiere trailer, “it’s been a little while” since the events of , actor Daisy Ridley told the Star Wars Celebration crowd in the panel presentation. She also told fans that “the lightsaber that Rey inherited from Luke lives.”

The trailer ended with actor Ian McDiarmid appearing on the stage and telling the audience, “roll it again,” which followed the sound of Emperor Palpatine’s laughter at the trailer’s close.

Hence, we certainly expect Palpatine to figure into the plot, as will a cast of familiar faces (Billy Dee Williams, Carrie Fischer) and new ones.
