Be careful what you click on.
In two new promo videos for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, one is a sentimental tear-jerker while the other is, in its way, a spoiler. Both will trigger your emotions but in very different ways.
The first, titled “The Final Conclusion”, is another Skywalker Saga retrospective. Director J. J. Abrams and his cast look back on their experiences and the power of this 40-year journey. Definitely worth the click and 2 minutes.
The other, “The Dark Lord of the Sith”, is an actual scene from The Rise of Skywalker. It’s centered around Kylo Ren and it is also very much worth the click…but you may you wish that you hadn’t.
While no major plot details are spoiled, per se, some really cool things are, at least for this particular moment. I have to confess that it’s something I would much rather have experienced for the first time in a theater than online.
Anyway, here it is (below). Your call. Will you give in to the Dark Side…or wait a week?
Perhaps related, it was reported that a new tease for Episode IX would be airing this week along with the new episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+. I wouldn’t be surprised if these two clips are that tease. Regardless, proceed with caution there as well.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens on Thursday night, December 19, 2019.
