Small Details You Missed In The Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Trailer
- Published on Oct 22, 2019
- It has risen. The final Rise of Skywalker trailer is here, and we've taken a close look at this new footage for the Skywalker saga-ending movie. Here are the small details you may have missed.
In the middle of all of the high-intensity action, you might have missed the original Lando Calrissian, played by Billy Dee Williams, sitting in the center of a massive group of Resistance members; a group that also includes C-3PO, stationed behind Lando, and what looks to be Poe Dameron, standing in front of him. He's sporting a bright yellow shirt similar to the one a young Lando wore in Solo.
Audiences haven't seen anything of Williams' version of Lando over the years, but when Leia and Larma D'Acy told Poe in The Last Jedi that there were Resistance allies "scattered" in the Outer Rim, many fans took this as a sign that Lando would make a triumphant return before the film series was over, and that theory has been proven true. We've already seen Lando back in action piloting the Millennium Falcon in the first Rise of Skywalker trailer, but this new footage gives us a hint at the mission Lando could have organized that put him back in the ship he lost to Han Solo all those years ago.
Could General Lando be taking Leia's place as the leader of the Resistance following her possible death? It's something fans have speculated about since the passing of Leia actress Carrie Fisher. We can't say for certain, but our interests are certainly piqued.
If there's one thing the Star Wars franchise knows, it's how to carry out epic Jedi battles. From Obi-Wan versus Darth Vader in a fight to the death, to Luke Skywalker fighting his own father in a valiant attempt to pull him away from the dark side of the Force… to whatever this was.
But in The Rise of Skywalker, there's a fight that goes down between two complex characters in a place that's immensely important to the Star Wars franchise: the ruins of the second Death Star, the follow-up version of the Empire's moon-sized weapon ship, which was then destroyed in the Battle of Endor. Keep watching the video to see all the small details you missed in the Star Wars Rise of Skywalker trailer!
