We're going to show you things only true fans noticed in The Rise of Skywalker trailer! Well, it's finally here: the trailer for the final installment of the Skywalker Saga. And with the trailer we finally get a title: The Rise of Skywalker. Considering that Luke Skywalker seemed to buy the moisture farm at the end of The Last Jedi, we can't help but wonder just which Skywalker is about to rise. We can only guess at what some of the scenes in this trailer might mean. But rest assured - a lack of actual knowledge never stopped us from speculating wildly about trailers before. Crack open your Wookieepedias, and dust off your holocrons - here are the small details you might've missed in the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

After two mainline movies' worth of fans constantly wondering where smooth operator Lando Calrissian, played by BIlly Dee Williams, might be hiding, the teaser finally confirmed that he'll return in The Rise of Skywalker. And he's right back where fans last saw him 36 years ago at the end of Return of the Jedi, sitting in the pilot's seat of the Millennium Falcon and having a grand old time. His co-pilot this time out isn't rebel smuggler Nien Nunb - who incidentally is still active in the Resistance movement. Instead, it's none other than Chewbacca accompanying Lando on a jump through hyperspace. Where are they headed? A very brief shot of a battle scene looks like it may take place in Lando's old stomping grounds, Cloud City.

Of course, fans have seen Lando in a movie since Jedi: 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story, where he was portrayed by Donald Glover instead of Williams. Interestingly, Williams seems to be wearing the same, or at least a very similar, yellow-and-black costume as the one Glover wore in the prequel. Perhaps he's trying to recapture the swashbuckling days of his youth? Or maybe it's just so newer fans will recognize him.

Arguably the most touching moment in the first teaser for The Rise of Skywalker is the brief shot of Leia and Rey embracing in a forest-like setting. A single tear runs down's Rey’s cheek as Luke's voiceover intones, "We'll always be with you." While the in-universe context for this heartfelt hug is still unknown, we do know that scenes featuring the late Carrie Fisher in The Rise of Skywalker are actually unused clips from The Force Awakens.

Much to the relief of Fisher fans worldwide, Lucasfilm announced in July 2018 that her character would not be controversially resurrected via CGI, like Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin in 2016's Rogue One. Instead, Abrams and his team would find a way to work with a number of scenes that had gone unused from Episode VII, as director J.J. Abrams told the crowd at the Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago.

So while it's still unclear why, exactly, Leia and Rey are sharing this particular moment, we know that it's not just a tacked-on deleted scene. Whatever it was that prompted this embrace in the Episode VII script changed the course of Episode IX's story, one way or another, meaning Fisher had a posthumous influence on the direction of the Star Wars universe - a fitting tribute to the legendary Leia. Keep watching the video to see the small details you missed in the Star Wars Episode IX trailer!

Who’s excited

true fans did not see the trailer and have retreated back to the safety of the classic trilogy where they can enjoy real star wars for the rest of their lives with other true fans who respect skywalker

Think you missed that the ship flying into the blue lit city at night is the same ship that dropped Rey off on Jakku. The other thing true fans would have noticed is the lack of one major character missing from the trailer: R2-D2. He is nowhere to be seen. You see 3PO, BB8 and DO more than once but not one shot of R2.

It's not an A wing in trailer ( seen twice... once swooping down over terrain at night and 2nd time in battle  )  as it looks more like THE GHOST from Rebels OR alternatively  it is the ship from THE FORCE AWAKENS when Rey has a flashback as a child as she looks on as the same ship flies off into space ( she assumes with her parents /family onboard ) while holding the hand of Simon Peg's character... UNKAR PLUTT

I don't care. I'm not watching an action movie about a tiny bony girl. It's absurd.

Rey didn’t even turn on the Anakin’s lightsaber correctly. The switch is way lower.

I hope the Death Star is the second one, on Endor. All that burning wreckage falling from orbit would be catastrophic to Endor. it would perfectly fit the darker tone of the movies if that blasted waste was the fallout of the hubris of the warring powers. Both new trilogy movies focused heavily on the way galactic war impacts the small people. the main characters are all nobodies with little jobs. Even the main villain, Kylo Ren, is humanized, and even ridiculed in a way that previous villains never were. Shining a light on how glorious space war has ruined the Ewoks planet is a pretty strong metaphor.

I don't know about anyone else, but I want to see star wars more than Endgame: Surprisingly, considering how I think there should only be 6 Star Wars movies, not 9...well technically 12, now 13 if you count Rogue One and Solo. But i've seen them all so I want to see all, so I want to see how the saga ends.
I thought Star Wars was about Anakin becoming good (star wars 1). Anakin becoming evil (2-3). Then Anakin's redemption (5-6). Period. Now there's this crap about his grandkid. Really? I mean It's not fun when he's not in it.

I like star wars 3 and star wars 6. Star Wars 3 because you see how Anakin becomes evil (sounds mean I know. He kills people, blah blah blah). But then there's star wars 6 where you see how Anakin becomes good.

Things Only True Fans Noticed - this shit isn't Star Wars, it's feminist propaganda completely void of a real storyline or characters you can care about.

What’s cloud citiehy and legasehea ? ! I digress -Everyone is getting the title wrong . The rise of skywalker will tell the story of the creation of anakin skywalker not the rising of Luke or Ben or even Rey.
