‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ trailer drops

Disney has released a teaser trailer for the next installment in the Star Wars franchise.  Subtitled The Rise of Skywalker, this ninth chapter concludes the Skywalker saga.

According to a press release about the film, director J.J. Abrams says unseen footage from Episode VII featuring Carrie Fischer was used to create scenes with the iconic Princess  Leia Organa.

“Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”
