Luke Skywalker's epic legacy in a galaxy far, far away may be coming to an end in the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but it also marks the return of some of the series greatest characters.

Aside from this, there's also the small matter of her parentage to deal with - we're not buying Kylo Ren's statement that her parents were nobodies - and the resurgence of The Resistance against The First Order too. In the trailer, a tear streams down Rey's face as they hug.

Are you excited to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?

Overall the movie looks a bit lackluster insofar as scope and thematic content, and it definitely looks like more of the same. Given that he's a robot, it's hard to determine whether he has emotions, but we do know he has frequent opinions and voices them often, so it seems safe to say he can experience something that resembles emotionality.

"It's the end of an era, and fans can not wait to see the epic conclusion to the Skywalker saga that began more than four decades ago", Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis said in a statement to CNET.

The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams returned to direct Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and he's set to, in his own words, "cohesively" wrap up the eight films that came before it. We went into this thing knowing it has to be an ending. "We're not screwing around", he said.

Tonight, hundreds of thousands of small one-man fighters should be able to penetrate local theater box office outer defenses - and secure tickets to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The second half of the trailer is a sizzle reel featuring various action scenes, including more lightsaber fighting, an image of an ominous throne and a spectacular shot of a Star Destroyer seemingly bursting through a sheet of ice.
