Watch the first trailer for Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Since the suspenseful ending of Star Wars VIII, The Last Jedi, in late 2017, fans have been waiting for news of the next, and apparently final, installment of the saga. This week fans have been given even more than expected: a title, release date, title, and full length trailer for the film. While this trailer is primarily a teaser, it does offer a surprising amount of footage for fans to pour over before the release of the movie next Christmas.
