Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will get its final, full-length trailer on Monday night during ESPN's airing of the New York Jets vs. New England Patriots game on Monday Night Football. We now also know that tickets will go on sale to the public on the same day, Monday, October 21st after the trailer airs during halftime, according to Fandango. “It’s the end of an era, and fans cannot wait to see the epic conclusion to the Skywalker saga that began more than four decades ago,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “The Rise of Skywalker is truly among the biggest and most anticipated films ever, and we are beyond excited to see how this momentous chapter in Star Wars storytelling nears its end.”
JJ Abrams returns to direct Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the final installment of the sequel trilogy and the Skywalker Saga, following Rian Johnson’s work on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Johnson’s film proved divisive because he chose not to take dangling plot threads from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Abrams's first Star Wars film, in their most obvious directions, including in regards to the mystery of Rey's parents. Johnson has said that he’s okay with Abrams doing similar things with the story of The Last Jedi, and in fact, kind of hopes he does.
"I've had a couple of conversations with [Abrams] but I've actually really enjoyed sitting back waiting to get my popcorn opening day and see how the thing turns out. I cannot wait," Johnson said at CinemaCon."
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and Carrie Fisher.
