We did not get a new trailer at the D23 Disney fair, but at least the first poster was released on “Star Wars 9: The Rise of Skywalker” And those who doubted after the first trailer, because there is only the nasty laugh of the Emperor to be heared. Which can now perhaps convince through the poster of the surprise return of the largest of all “Star Wars” villains: The Emperor.
Ever since the “Episode 9” trailer, fans are puzzling over how the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) is supposed to come back, when he was thrown into the Death Star Bay by Darth Vader in “Star Wars 6”, where he was defeated. Based on the canon, we have developed our own, long, nerdy theory, in which Darth Vader’s mask has a central function:
Darth Vader’s mask! So Palpatine could come back in “Star Wars 9”
Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo (Adam Driver) will make the final duel in “Star Wars 9”. The poster will be a bit like the Emperor is pleased. The movie takes place a good year after “Star Wars 8: The Last Jedi”, the Resistance is in the First Order Guerrilla Warfare – and when it’s over, the story of the Skywalker family will also be over. In cinemas, Star Wars will not continue until 2022, when the first, as yet unknown film from the trilogy of the “Game Of Thrones” -maker begins.
Until then, everything is set for the Disney + streaming service at Disney. The first, the bounty hunter series “The Mandalorian” starts in November 2019 in the US and in early 2020 in Germany. This is followed by an agent series that plays before “Rogue One” – and then a series about nobody lesser than fan favorite Obi-Wan Kenobi, played again by Ewan McGregor! This series has more potential than one or the other might think.
