United Airlines to fly Star Wars-themed planes for Rise of Skywalker

The Star Wars News Roundup for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker teaser trailer is shared showing Rey

The long-awaited subtitle for Episode IX was finally revealed during Friday morning's panel at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, eight months before the film's release. "Leia lives in this film in a way that is kind of mind-blowing to me". Based on what we heard in the trailer, it sounds like Mark Hamill isn't quite done with Luke Skywalker yet (but he may just be a Force ghost like Obi-Wan and Anakin). On a more serious note, Abrams also opened up about the inclusion of the late Carrie Fisher in the film.

The third and final entry in the new trilogy that began with The Force Awakens, Episode IX wraps up the entire Skywalker Saga that began all the way back in 1977.

"I feel like we've gotten to a place - without jinxing anything or sounding more confident than I deserve to be - I feel like we're in a place where we might have something incredibly special", Abrams said. When asked whether or not he would mind if Abrams did so, Johnson said he had zero problem with Abrams doing whatever he needed to do.

The character Rey (Daisy Ridley) first appeared in "The Force Awakens", which was the seventh film in the franchise and the first film in the sequel "Star Wars" trilogy. Kelly Marie Tran's Rose, Lupita Nyong'o's Maz Kanata, Billie Lourd's Lieutenant Connix, and Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux also returned for the ninth and final film.

The Skywalker saga is nearly at an end. "Sure, there are battles and feuds between other characters, there are characters who lose their way and find it again, but it's always the Skywalkers leading the charge for the Light Side, dealing with both internal and external struggles against the Dark Side, which is led by Palpatine", according to The Huffington Post. CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Lucasfilm will take a break from new Star Wars movies after Star Wars: Episode IX. "I get sick and exhausted of being accused of betraying Han Solo". "We are looking at the next saga", she told The Hollywood Reporter.

When prodded about what will happen with the complex relationship between Kylo and Rey, Ridley demurred, "I guess the Kylo and Rey thing, we'll have to see".

A new droid, Dio, was introduced and the little creation spent a few minutes chatting with BB-8. Will we learn that Rey is not, in fact, nobody but actually a Skywalker/Solo/Kenobi/Palpatine/Jinn of some kind?
