We're going to show you things only true fans noticed in The Rise of Skywalker trailer! Well, it's finally here: the trailer for the final installment of the Skywalker Saga. And with the trailer we finally get a title: The Rise of Skywalker. Considering that Luke Skywalker seemed to buy the moisture farm at the end of The Last Jedi, we can't help but wonder just which Skywalker is about to rise. We can only guess at what some of the scenes in this trailer might mean. But rest assured - a lack of actual knowledge never stopped us from speculating wildly about trailers before. Crack open your Wookieepedias, and dust off your holocrons - here are the small details you might've missed in the first trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

After two mainline movies' worth of fans constantly wondering where smooth operator Lando Calrissian, played by BIlly Dee Williams, might be hiding, the teaser finally confirmed that he'll return in The Rise of Skywalker. And he's right back where fans last saw him 36 years ago at the end of Return of the Jedi, sitting in the pilot's seat of the Millennium Falcon and having a grand old time. His co-pilot this time out isn't rebel smuggler Nien Nunb - who incidentally is still active in the Resistance movement. Instead, it's none other than Chewbacca accompanying Lando on a jump through hyperspace. Where are they headed? A very brief shot of a battle scene looks like it may take place in Lando's old stomping grounds, Cloud City.

Of course, fans have seen Lando in a movie since Jedi: 2018's Solo: A Star Wars Story, where he was portrayed by Donald Glover instead of Williams. Interestingly, Williams seems to be wearing the same, or at least a very similar, yellow-and-black costume as the one Glover wore in the prequel. Perhaps he's trying to recapture the swashbuckling days of his youth? Or maybe it's just so newer fans will recognize him.

Arguably the most touching moment in the first teaser for The Rise of Skywalker is the brief shot of Leia and Rey embracing in a forest-like setting. A single tear runs down's Rey’s cheek as Luke's voiceover intones, "We'll always be with you." While the in-universe context for this heartfelt hug is still unknown, we do know that scenes featuring the late Carrie Fisher in The Rise of Skywalker are actually unused clips from The Force Awakens.

Much to the relief of Fisher fans worldwide, Lucasfilm announced in July 2018 that her character would not be controversially resurrected via CGI, like Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin in 2016's Rogue One. Instead, Abrams and his team would find a way to work with a number of scenes that had gone unused from Episode VII, as director J.J. Abrams told the crowd at the Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago.

So while it's still unclear why, exactly, Leia and Rey are sharing this particular moment, we know that it's not just a tacked-on deleted scene. Whatever it was that prompted this embrace in the Episode VII script changed the course of Episode IX's story, one way or another, meaning Fisher had a posthumous influence on the direction of the Star Wars universe - a fitting tribute to the legendary Leia. Keep watching the video to see the small details you missed in the Star Wars Episode IX trailer!

No mention of the falcon having the deflector shield that got knocked off in return of the jedi when it jumps to hyperspace.

Lando looks like Neil deGrasse Tyson 😂
Kris Anticknap
I want so badly to be excited for this.
Sadly, I don't think there will be a Rise of Interest in Star Wars after eight misses in a row over twenty years.

True fans didn't notice anything, because they don't watch these crap movies

My theory is that Kylo Ren and Rey are actually twins and this is what is actually revealed.
Its really not that farfetched
Luke and Leia could communicate across a long distance just like Kylo Ren and Rey can. Kylo Ren and Rey are more powerful Jedi and that's why they could actually touch and almost portal to each other. Which Kylo almost did when he felt the ocean
Also Luke seemed to know her at the end of TFA
Ethan Mann
hahahahahahahahaha lando laugh
Y gamer
anyone noticed that in the trailer, a imperial star destroyer appeared in the background
Karen E. Anderson
The desert planet is the remaining pieces of jheda

OMG did you NOT watch The Last Jedi? Luke clearly stated he is not the Last Jedi. How many of these sorry ass channels need to speculate on "Gray Jedi" or some other lame iteration of force users that will never exist in the films before they learn to stfu with the fanboy speculation? Just stop. Oh and pay attention. It might help your credibility.

According to the elder Cannon palpatine's body was constantly burned out completely by the dark side and he had to constantly recreate himself with clones and then transfer his consciousness into them Luke and Leia were able to kill the emperor reborn which was one of his clones after the emperor successfully turn Luke to the dark side and Leia successfully turn them back to the light this new palpatine could very easily be that

Watch This Before You See The Final Things Only True Fans 1 day ago   10:42

Game of Thrones is finally on the way back for its final season, promising to bring answers to all of our questions about dragons, white walkers, and, presumably, whether Hot Pie’s new restaurant business was a success. Still, it’s it’s been a while since we’ve visited the Seven Kingdoms, so before we get the final piece of HBO’s epic hit series, here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to know before you watch Game of Thrones Season 8.

The most shattering reveal of Season 7 came in the finale, confirming one of the longest-held theories in all of Game of Thrones fandom.

Jon Snow is not, it turns out, the bastard son of Ned Stark. He’s actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, which makes him the rightful-ish heir to the Iron Throne. As his sister Lyanna was close to death due to childbirth complications, Ned promised to keep her secret at all costs, lying about Jon’s parentage to protect his identity. Not even Jon knows he's a Targaryen, which is why, in true GoT fashion, this reveal was intercut with shots of Jon making out with Daenerys Targaryen, his secret aunt.

Surprisingly, that’s not the most shocking thing about the scene. Instead, it’s the ramifications of Jon having both Targaryen and Stark blood coursing through his veins. As we learned from the Three-Eyed Raven, Jon’s a walking, talking one-man song of ice and fire with roots that go back to Robert’s Rebellion, the big brawl in Westeros that predates the events of the series. Robert Baratheon cut down Rhaegar on the battlefield and seized the Iron Throne, setting into motion the narrative we've been following for seven seasons, but it was all based on a lie. When Lyanna left Robert to run off with Rhaegar, the story throughout the Seven Kingdoms was that she was kidnapped. In reality, though, it seems Rhaegar and Lyanna were deeply in love, marrying in secret just before they met their ultimate fates.

Game of Thrones has used “Winter is coming” as its ominous tagline since 2011, and Season 7 finally delivered on that promise. As the final image of the season, we see the undead army of White Walkers on horseback advancing on the Seven Kingdoms. The woefully outmatched remnants of the free folk and the Night's Watch helplessly watch as the Night King flexes on the realms of men by having his new ice dragon huff, puff, and blow the Wall down. That's right: the Night King has resurrected an undead, unkillable dragon as the deadliest weapon in his considerable arsenal.

So what's the deal with all the ice zombies? In short, wights are the undead hordes of soldiers who serve the White Walkers, former humans turned into zombie-like ice monsters that serve under the Night King. The Night King's true motives aren't yet known, but we know that he's extremely powerful and can control the entire army with a sort of telepathy. Fire can destroy the wights, but only dragon fire, dragonglass, and Valyrian steel can kill White Walkers. Samwell Tarly has discovered that Dragonstone, the historical seat of House Targaryen, is sitting on a mountain of dragonglass, and Jon Snow and his men have been mining it and turning it into weapons in preparation ever since. As for the Night King, it's unclear if anything can stop him. Keep watching the video to know what you should know before watching Game Of Thrones season 8.
