D23 Expo 2019 gave us all kinds of exciting news, including a special look at the highly-anticipated conclusion of the third trilogy in the Star Wars saga. Here is a special look at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

  • Of course, the most notable part of this special look is Rey wielding a double-sided red lightsaber while cloaked in black robes, hinting at a turn to the darkside for the hero.
  • Other notable visuals include a most impressive fleet of Imperial Star Destroyers and C-3PO with red glowing eyes.
  • The special look also features voiceover from Emperor Palpatine, who ominously says “your journey nears its end.”
