The big Star Wars fans event, Star Wars Celebration, is officially underway in Chicago. It started with a high-profile panel focusing on the next big movie: Star Wars: Episode 9, which revealed the title of episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker. In addition, we had the first trailer of Episode 9, which was crowned with surprise when we heard the laugh of Emperor Palpatine. While there was a debate over the identity of the voice, actor Ian McDiarmid briefly appeared on stage after the first roll of the trailer, again pointing out that the iconic villain would return apparently in a certain way. There were many other things to glean, like the fact that Kylo Ren could get his helmet back. We will report in more detail as we continue to dig.
Lucasfilm has now released the panel today if you are interested in a cover – at the very least, it is worth checking out the part with the C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels, who seems to have only the better time. You will find below the official livestream of Star Wars below, which is going on for the first day of celebration. Although the panel of episode 9 has undoubtedly been the highlight of today's day – and probably the entire weekend – there is still much to be done. You can view the details of our coverage by clicking on the links below.
The original story follows.
The roundtable debuted with Stephen Colbert as a facilitator, bringing together director, JJ Abrams, and Star Wars boss, Kathleen Kennedy, for what they talk about the film and the excitement that l & # 39; surrounds. Beyond that, the panel promises new details on the highly anticipated third film of the new trilogy. It is widely accepted that the first trailer of episode 9 will debut and we will get the official title.
Lucasfilm's president, Kathleen Kennedy, and director, JJ Abrams, are already on stage, while the jury's official description also states that there will be "a lot of surprises and special guests". According to Lucasfilm, this is an event "not to be missed". At the time of writing these lines, we had not yet received many significant details. Kennedy and Abrams explained in detail how they reached this point and what episode IX meant for them and for Star Wars. Abrams has however revealed that the film speaks of the core group that goes on an adventure together. He also noted that some time had passed since the end of the last movie. The cast is now assembled on stage, including a newcomer, although Adam Driver is clearly absent.
The entire panel is broadcast live. You can watch it on the Star Wars YouTube channel or in the embedded video below. It is expected to run for an hour in total, so the title and the trailer – if they arrive – are expected to debut soon.
Star Wars Episode 9 Panel Start Time
- 9 am
- 11h CT
- 12:00 pm ET
- 17h local time
- 4:00 AEDT (Saturday, April 13)
Despite episode 9 published on December 20, 2019, we know very little about it. As mentioned above, he does not have a title yet, which could be part of the group's revelations. There is also no trailer or footage broadcast, so Star Wars Celebration seems to be a place as conducive to showing a movie based on what the event usually brings. Abrams, who previously led The Force Awakens in 2015, was chosen after Colin Trevorrow of Jurassic World was removed from office.
The third and final entry of the new trilogy that began with The Force Awakens, Episode IX, concludes the Skywalker saga that began in early 1977.
Star Wars Celebration also promises news and revelations for the new Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order game from developers of Apex Legends and Titanfall. Go to GameSpot's sister site, CNET, to see a full recap of what to expect from the show.
