A recent report has suggested that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will feature the final conflict between the Jedi and the Sith.
Fans were treated to a slew of new images from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this week, courtesy of Vanity Fair. Journalist Lev Grossman’s piece featured a bunch of interesting tidbits, including interviews with both cast and crew.
Beyond relaying what the folks themselves had to say, Grossman also inferred a few things from what he has seen and heard about the film, one being that it would feature the end of an ancient Star Wars conflict: “In the new movie, it will provide the climax to the literally millennia-long conflict between the Jedi Order, on the one hand, and the Sith, on the other.”
This is certainly exciting to think about from a Star Wars fans perspective and with the news that Emperor Palpatine (Darth Sidious) will be returning for the film, we know the Sith will certainly have a presence.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set for release on December 20th 2019 with J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) directing a cast that includes Star Warsveterans Daisy Ridley (Rey), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Greg Grunberg (Snap Wexley), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine) and Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) as well as new additions Naomi Ackie (Lady Mabeth), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), and Keri Russell (The Americans).
