(trailer review) - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I forgot they were going to release a final trailer.  Yes, there are going to be TV spots etc, but this is the "final" trailer that should show some story to it and does it? No!
The trailer, for the most part is a sell that it is Star Wars.  It is a sell that we see all the new actors.  It is a sell that we see a touching moment with Carrie Fisher as it would have been her Birthday today, but she died when they wrapped on The Last Jedi.  It was a sell that we saw Kylo Ren and Rey fight but where was The Emporor?  After seeing the actor who plays him already, might as well show him a bit more prominently, no?

Anyway, JJ does what he does best, SELL! And I'd be lying if I didn't buy into the visual, the scope and then SCORE!!!  Let's just hope he can close this one off neatly with a nice bow.  All we want is space battles, lightsabre fights and a bit of story connectivity.  Let's hope all the best bits are in the movie.

Directed by JJ Abrams and Starring Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamil, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Naomi Ackie
