Die aktuelle Star Wars Franchise wird beendet

By Ninian Carter

December 18, 2019 - Die letzte Episode von Star Wars beendet das neunteilige Weltraum-Märchen, das vor über 40 Jahren seinen Anfang hatte. Die Frage ist, ob sie auch so einen Hype auslösen wird oder das grandiose Einspielergebnis von the Force Awakens wiederholen kann?

Box Office Pro is predicting a U.S. domestic opening weekend of $200 million for the final entry in the Star Wars nonology, The Rise of Skywalker.

The ninth episode in the sprawling sci-fi saga comes out 42 years after the original movie, Star Wars – A New Hope, landed in theatres in 1977.

To date, three trailers have been released, giving fans glimpses of highly unexpected scenes. In several clips, Rey is seen battling Kylo Ren on the wreckage of the Death Star (destroyed in Return of the Jedi) – now protruding from an ocean moon named Kef Bir. In another emotionally charged scene, droid C-3PO says he is “taking one last look… at my friends.” An ominous voice-over from the evil Emperor, aka Darth Sidious, implies that he was not killed at the end of episode VI afterall, and is back for revenge.

The Rise of Skywalker is released in the U.S. on December 20, although many European countries will screen it from December 18.
