Things Only True Fans Noticed In The Rise of Skywalker Trailer

  • Published on:  4/12/2019
  • 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.

    Can we please lose this 'true fans' garbage?Also, this video is less like 'obscure things that fans would notice' and more of a 'highlights from the trailer' video.

    You don’t have to be a true fan of Star Wars to recognize the one and only Billy Dee Williams. His looks and voice are just as iconic as the great James Earl Jones.
