New RISE OF SKYWALKER Character Posters Have Old Trading Card Style (IMAGES)

Now here’s some sweet fan service nostalgia.

Designed as an homage to original trilogy Star Wars trading cards, the new character posters for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker focus squarely on the stars of the sequel trilogy Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, plus some new additions debuting in Rise.

Some of the OT classics are there — Lando Calrissian, C-3PO and R2D2 — but coyly absent are Luke Skywalker’s ghost, Emperor Palpatine, and General Leia.

Newcomer Allegiant General Pryde, played by Richard E. Grant, is also not seen, nor is the still-secret character played by a favorite The Lord of the Rings hobbit Dominic Monaghan (who’s also a J. J. Abrams Lost vet).

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens on December 20, 2019.
