Fin del camino para la actual franquicia Star Wars

By Ninian Carter

December 18, 2019 - El episodio final de Star Wars concluye la épica ópera espacial de nueve partes que comenzó hace más de 40 años, pero ¿está a la altura de las expectativas o igualará el monumental éxito de taquilla de The Force Awakens?

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.
