Disney at D23 has just showed us a sneak peak of Star Wars: the Rise of Skywalker and it revealed a huge plot line. This sneak peak is exclusive to limited D23 members but I’m here to spoil it for you.
They made us seal our phones in a plastic bag which means I wasn’t able to take photos or videos of the sneak peak.
There was a lot awesome shots on the trailer but the most breathtaking one was right at the end. It showed a hooded Rey turning on a double sith lightsaber. Yes. I’ll repeat. A double sith lightsaber. The whole crowd started screaming (including me).
I personally don’t think Rey will be a sith in episode 9. Lucasfilm wouldn’t reveal such a big plot twist on a trailer. Even though I want this to happen; I don’t think it will. What I think is going to happen in the film is Rey will act like a sith to lie to Palpatine to get something. This is pure speculation; what do you think?
The rest of the trailer was fulled with epic moments too. We saw a huge army of Star Destroyers in the middle of space with stormy skies; which really reminded me of the Millenium Falcon persecution in Solo. There was also an epic fight between Kylo and Rey in the middle of the sea.
I can assure you that The Rise of Skywalker will be incredible filled with tons of plot twists that we are not going to expect.
