Disney fans at this past weekend's D23 Expo got a special look at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Now the rest of us get to unpack it. The first half of the sneak peek is heavy on nostalgia, from flashes of a young Luke and an old Obi Wan to the most recent events of The Last Jedi. Then the final minute offers a glimpse of the future, calling it "the story of a generation" before an eerie and familiar voice tells us "your journey nears its end." At least one moment gave me legitimate goosebumps. Just watch. 

Who's ready??? Well, we still have to wait a while. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes out December 20, 2019. Let me know what you're watching in the meantime!
