Watch New THE RISE OF SKYWALKER D23 Footage

Disney is perhaps the biggest company in entertainment, with so much intellectual property under its belt that it saves the best moments for its very own “expo,” D23.

Among those many properties is, of course, the Star Wars franchise and at D23 this year, the studio busted out a nostalgia-stuffed sneak peek at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!

The video starts with an exploration of the original trilogy and the prequel films before diving into the new footage. It includes new lands, an epic battle between Rey and Kylo Ren, and a red-eyed C3P0. But there’s one piece of imagery that’s really catching everyone’s attention: Rey looking very Sith-y in a dark cloak with a red, dual-bladed lightsaber.

It’s quite the image, but remember, folks: You can never take a trailer at face value! This could simply be a fantasy sequence, or our girl Rey playing the ultimate long con.

Watch the new D23 footage at the top of the post.

We’ll likely see another trailer closer to the film’s December 20, 2019 release date that will help clear things up… or confuse us even more!
