The first Star Wars 9 Movie Poster is here…

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.

Star Wars: Jon Favreau reveales upcoming TV Series Details

Disney’s upcoming streaming service won’t launch until late of 2019, but details surrounding one of its most highly anticipated TV series have emerged now.

Jon Favreau, who is set to write and executive produce an original, live-action scripted Star Wars TV series, on Wednesday revealed on Instagram that his new show will be called The Mandalorian.

“After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic,” Favreau shared in a post on his Instagram account.

Disney is developing multiple live-action Star Wars TV series for its upcoming streaming service, which is designed to rival Netflix. The platform will be the exclusive home for Marvel feature films and original series as well as Pixar and other Lucasfilm properties. So far, only Favreau’s involvement in one of the Star Wars TV series has been revealed. Wednesday’s announcement offers a closer look at just where the new Star Wars TV series fits in with the franchise.

For his part, Favreau is no stranger to the Star Wars universe. The actor-director played roles in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
