Einde voor de huidige Star Warsreeks

By Ninian Carter

December 18, 2019 - Met de laatste episode van Star Wars komt een eind aan een
negendelige epische ruimte-opera, die 40 jaar geleden begon, maar kan deze de hype waarmaken of het monumentale kassasucces van The Force Awakens evenaren?

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.
