Lucasfilm has officially released the synopsis for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, teasing the birth of new legends in the climactic conclusion of the Skywalker Saga.
Last week, fans finally got a look at brand new footage from the film when Lucasfilm released a special trailer at Disney’s D23 biennial expo. The Rise of Skywalker special look showed off the Resistance’s last stand not only against the First Order but what appears to be a fleet of Star Destroyers belonging to the Empire itself. But what really took the internet by storm was the reveal of Daisy Ridley’s Rey wielding a double-bladed red lightsaber.
Now, we finally have an official synopsis for The Rise of Skywalker and it just may offer a hint at Lucasfilm’s plans for the future of the Star Wars franchise beyond the Skywalker Saga. You can check it out below.
Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams join forces once again to take viewers on an epic journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the riveting conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, where new legends will be born and the final battle for freedom is yet to come. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in U.S. theaters on December 20.
Full plot details for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are currently under wraps, though the film is set to conclude the Skywalker saga before the franchise takes a three-year hiatus from theaters. Details on future Star Wars films are also under lock and key, however, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are set to develop a new trilogy. The duo will work closely with Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson who is also developing a trilogy of his own. Together they will work to create the next saga in the Star Wars franchise.

Abrams, 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.
