Star Wars Episode IX Observations

This post is all about the observations that we’ve made from the newly dropped Episode 9 trailer. What?! you haven’t watched it yet?! Well, let’s fix that by giving you a moment to watch it below. . . or watch it again. You know you want to. . .

Lando Pilots the Falcon
We’ve known for a long time that Lando has wanted the Millennium Falcon back. From the looks of it, it seems that Lando has finally gotten the ship back. How that exactly happens we aren’t sure? Clearly though, it appears that he is flying the ship that did the Kessel Run in under 12 Parsecs.

Leia Appearance
Everyone was upset to see the passing of Carrie Fisher. This also created concerns for the last episode in the new trilogy. From the looks of the footage, we get see Leia on the big screen at least one last time

Maniacal Laughter
Towards the end of the trailer, there is a somewhat recognizable laughter heard. For a moment, it seems like Mark Hamill might have transitioned to full-on Joker laugh. Upon further review, we don’t think that’s true. It sounds like there might be a re-appearance of Emperor Palpatine.

What?! How could this have happened you might ask? Well, we aren’t completely sure. Maybe Snoke was a failed attempt of a clone of Palpatine. Perhaps he just influences Kylo Ren through the Force. Either way, we are pretty excited to see how things turn out.

The Rise of Skywalker
The title for the Episode IX also brings about many questions. Including Skywalker in the title would make everyone think that maybe this is a course correction from the previous episode. Is Rey really a Skywalker somehow? Maybe that was the plan all along to make her a Skywalker, but they wanted to throw everyone off. Or does it mean something else? Could they be referring to a different Skywalker? Does Luke somehow come back? So many questions . . . what other possible interpretations could that title mean? Well, we are definitely interested in seeing how the story unfolds.
