How Did the Death Star Survive to Appear in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’?

The teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode 9 – The Rise of Skywalker hit today, and in typical J.J. Abrams fashion, it presented us with a bunch of questions. The one I want to talk right now is the location we see at the end of the trailer. We see what appears to be the Death Star, last seen in Return of the Jedi, now crashed on some planet.  Of course, fans are probably wondering how this can exist since we saw the second Death Star destroyed by the Rebellion in the Battle of Endor.

What Does the ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Title Mean for Rey, Kylo Ren, and the Story at Large?

Lucasfilm debuted the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode 9 at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago this Friday, and with that, the official title of the final film in the Skywalker Saga. The title Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at first seems like an appropriate bookend for a franchise that started with a young farmboy 40 years ago (and plays into director J.J. Abrams fascination with synonyms for “get up”). But that title also raises a lot of questions for the plot Episode 9 that may retcon so...

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer: J.J. Abrams Returns to a Galaxy Far, Far Away

If directing Star Wars movies were like a relay race, J.J. Abrams directed 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens and then passed the baton off to Rian Johnson, leaving Abrams justifiably winded after pulling off an incredibly difficult feat. Johnson went on to direct what is arguably the best Star Wars movie ever with The Last Jedi, but let’s put that aside for the time being. If we continue this metaphor, Abrams was breathing heavily with his hands on his knees, looked up at Johnson running the ...

How ‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Responds to ‘The Last Jedi,’ According to J.J Abrams

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was divisive for some fans of the sci-fi saga. While some saw it as an innovative and exciting leap forward for the franchise with compelling character arcs, others thought it misused legacy characters and went in a drastically different direction than they hoped. Therefore, director J.J. Abrams has some heavy lifting to do when it comes to wrapping things up with Star Wars Episode 9. Thankfully, he accepted the task through a giant leap of faith, and brought with him s...

Oscar Isaac Says the Poe/Leia Relationship “Gets Carried Over” Into ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, hot-headed flyboy Poe Dameron learned some tough lessons about how to be a better leader from General Leia Organa and Vice Admiral Holdo. The Poe Leia relationship in particular, as brought to life by actors Oscar Isaac and Carrie Fisher, was a layered and fascinating one, and even though Fisher is no longer with us, Isaac says that relationship “gets carried over” into this year’s Star Wars: Episode 9.

‘Star Wars Episode 9’ is Definitely the End of the Skywalker Saga, Says Oscar Isaac

When a press release from Disney and Lucasfilm last summer announced the cast of Star Wars Episode 9, it casually mentioned that this chapter would be “the final installment of the Skywalker saga.” Now franchise cast member Oscar Isaac has doubled down on those claims, and he makes it sound like this really will be the end of the road for the primary Star Wars saga. But what does that mean for the new characters introduced in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi? Oscar Isaac recently appeared ...

Matt Smith is Not in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’, Says Matt Smith

Last year, Variety reported that former Doctor Who and The Crown actor Matt Smith had joined the cast of J.J.

Star Wars Episode 9 Title: What Should It Be? And When Can We Expect It?

It all started on Monday when Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels tweeted out a vague message hinting that news was on the horizon. Since we expect the first trailer for Star Wars Episode 9 to be released during Star Wars Celebration (taking place from April 11 through 15 at McCormick Place in Chicago), we didn’t expect a trailer. So many people, myself included, suspected he might be talking about a title for the ninth and final installment of the Skywalker saga. The next day (yesterday), Disney w...

How Long After ‘The Last Jedi’ Does ‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Take Place? John Boyega Has the Answer

As has become customary with any new Star Wars saga film, very little is known about what is coming in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga. Star Wars Episode 9 is currently in production, and very few secrets are making their way on to the web, which isn’t surprising since Mark Hamill recently compared the secrecy surrounding the franchise as something akin to being in the CIA.
