It’s lastly occurring: The very first trailer for Star Wars: Episode IX lands this Friday through the opening hours of the 2019 Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.
We’ll uncover the movie’s official title, see the trailer, and doubtless get a bunch of latest photographs and particulars as properly from Star Wars chief Kathleen Kennedy and author/director JJ Abrams.
We do not know precisely what the Star Wars: Episode IX panel will embody, but it surely’s possible we’ll see the trailer on the prime of the hour, and it is much more possible that the trailer can be considerably cryptic, doubtlessly deceptive, and never reply practically as many questions because it raises.
That’s high-quality by me! I like my film trailers to be imprecise and mess with viewers just a little bit. That’s what trailers for each The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi did to some extent. I see no purpose it will likely be any totally different with tomorrow’s large reveal.
In any case, this is when the Star Wars panel goes stay tomorrow, Friday the 12th of April:
9 am PDT / 11 am CDT / 12 pm EDT / 5 pm UTC
You can watch your entire panel over on the Star Wars YouTube channel. I am going to embed a video right here as properly when that URL is made public.
It’s been two years since The Last Jedi was revealed on the 2017 Star Wars Celebration.
While that film was actually . . . controversial, it has sparked a ton of nice debate and dialog across the new trilogy and the nice and unhealthy sides of fandom. Rian Johnson did not pull any punches with that film, and whereas I did have a lot of criticisms of the movie, total I actually favored how subversive it was. It jogged my memory lots of how The Empire Strikes Back modified Star Wars for the higher.
This time it is JJ Abrams within the director’s chair, so I believe we will count on a tone extra much like The Force Awakens, which did an incredible job of mixing humor and motion with extra tragic components. Yes, it mirrored A New Hope just a little too intently (for the love of all that’s holy, please no extra Death Stars!) but it surely was nonetheless a improbable film that launched an incredible new solid of characters to the Star Wars universe. I am unable to wait to see the place their tales go in Episode IX.
At the identical time, I am nonetheless just a little bummed out that just about all the primary characters from the unique trilogy are gone now.
It was laborious sufficient to lose Han Solo. To then lose Carrie Fisher in actual life adopted by the loss of life of Luke Skywalker in Episode XIII—properly, it is nearly an excessive amount of. Fisher will reprise her position as Princess Leia in Episode IX, however solely vis-a-vis beforehand shot footage. It feels like Mark Hamill could present up in a really small capability (maybe a Force Ghost?) as properly.
We’ll know rather more tomorrow, hopefully. Star Wars: Episode IX lands in theaters on December 20th, 2019. It’s all I would like for Christmas.
