On Friday, the moment Star Wars fans across the globe had been waiting for finally happened – J.J. Abrams shared the first teaser trailer for Episode IX and we learned the film’s title: The Rise of Skywalker.
Like any great teaser, it left us with more questions and I think it’s safe to say it has given a spark of hope to fans of a galaxy far, far away that were a little worried about this final instalment of the Skywalker Saga due to their feelings on Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. But we’re not here to talk about that!
Straight away, fans began to notice parallels in the teaser and theories have already begun flying around. But one tweet that caught my attention was the one below that shows how The Phantom Menace and The Rise of Skywalker teasers are bookends of the whole saga.

Because I’m not ready for it to end, I’ve rounded up all of the official teasers trailers for you to enjoy below…
