The Rise of Skywalker is not only the final entry in the ongoing sequel trilogy, but the final entry in the nine-film, mainline Star Wars saga. The “Skywalker Saga” began with the original Star Wars trilogy — which ran from 1977 to 1983 — and the prequel trilogy — which ran from 1999 to 2005.
The Rise of Skywalker is billed as the definitive end to the nine-film “Skywalker Saga.” Set a year after the events of 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the film rejoins the trinity of Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron as the Resistance’s war against Kylo Ren’s First Order continues. Meanwhile, the ubiquitous conflict between the Jedi and the Sith comes to a conclusive head.
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.
