Star Wars Episode IX Celebration Panel Recap

Mark Hamill's Biggest Shock with The Force Awakens & His Pitch No One Wanted

Star Wars to have a 'hiatus' after episode IX

You may also get to see the new actors in the film-Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Dominic Monaghan-and maybe even find out their character names.

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" hits theaters on December 20.

The latter two - alluded-to in an alleged leak earlier today - would be particularly poignant, given of course that the first ever Star Wars movie was subtitled A New Hope.

The first trailer for the final episode of the Star Wars saga has been released, and while it doesn't reveal too much about the plot, there's a lot to unpack. Towards the end of the trailer, Skywalker also states, "We'll always be with you".

"This is your fight", we hear Luke Skywalker say in voice-over, as Rey (Daisy Ridley) is seen wielding a lightsaber on a desert surface.

Disney boss Bob Iger has confirmed that the relentless Star Wars movie franchise will take a breather after the release of Star Wars: Episode IX later this year.

After Twitter was back in action, the flood of Star Wars tweets were pouring in. "The Force Awakens" earned strong reviews and grossed more than $2 billion worldwide in 2015, while "The Last Jedi" generated more than $1.3 billion.

"It's called The Rise of Skywalker because they finally defeat Palpatine and escape the figurative curse that's been placed over them since he set his eyes on Anakin", one Twitter user noted.

"Star Wars" superfan Stephen Colbert moderated the panel, doing his best to get the tight-lipped cast and creators to reveal anything about the film.

He said they never thought of having a CGI character and went with the idea of using that unsued footage and "writing scenes around her".

Luke Skywalker's voice is also present throughout the trailer. As Luke Skywalker said, "No one's really gone". And that question we ask ourselves every day.

"We'll have to wait and see", Ridley said. Well, it's arguably the most important event in Star Wars history (no pressure, guys).

While most fans voiced their excitement of the upcoming trilogy finale, there were some who were quick to point out some mistakes.
