A new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker TV spot and poster shows Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) facing off against each other one last time.
The latest TV spot, titled “Adventure” by the promotional campaign, runs heavy on the action, with expansive space battles, running gunfights and the long-awaited rematch between aspiring Jedi Knight Rey and the First Order leader and heir to Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, in a no-holds-barred lightsaber duel.
Rey and Kylo Ren’s relationship has been the subject of a great deal of speculation over the last few years, with some supporting it and others criticizing it. Ridley promised that The Rise of Skywalker delves into Rey and Kylo Ren’s bond and even addresses it, though exactly how that will play out remains to be seen. As of right now, Rey and Kylo Ren are at odds, and the newest batch of promotional material continues to support that. Of course, when it comes to Star Wars, nothing is ever certain until the movie is on the big screen. The two of them just might end up working together again in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film arrives on Dec. 20.
