Star Wars

Every generation has a legend. Watch the new teaser for Star Wars: Episode IX.

The trailer dropped during the Star Wars Celebration event on Friday, April 12, 2019, in Chicago, which was live streamed on YouTube.

Speaking during the event, director JJ Abrams confirmed that the latest film does not pick up immediately after the events of Episode VIII.

“This is an adventure that the group goes on together,” he said. “One of the great things about the movie was the dynamic between the characters. They are the most wonderful together, and that’s the thing I’m most looking forward for you to seeing.”

Reprising their roles are Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn and Adam Driver as Kylo Ten, while Mark Hamill will reportedly return as Luke Skywalker in some form, following his apparent death at the end of The Last Jedi.

The film will be released in UK cinemas in December 2019.
