Home News Rudy Ortega October 12th, 2019 - 8:32 PM Rumors are swirling that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's newest trailer will be shown during the Patriots vs. Jets Monday Night Football game on Oct. 21st. The much anticipated sequel is set conclude the Skywalker saga, with many believing that tickets will go on sale the moment the trailer ends during halftime. October is a familiar time for Disney to broadcast Star Wars-related material, since both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were shown during similar Monday Night Football time-frames. Since October 21st was the late Carrie Fisher's birthday, one could even look at this choice of date as a clever homage from Disney to the actress and fans alike.
Given how Disney already owns the rights to ESPN, it would only make sense for them to push the final installment of their beloved franchise at a time where it will get millions of views. If there aren't any delays, fans will be delighted to know that they inch that much closer to seeing the finale when it comes to an end on Dec. 20th. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is directed by J.J Abrams and produced by Kathleen Kennedy. Check out the most recent trailer from D23 below. There are a number of big mysteries facing Star Wars fans ahead of The Rise of Skywalker.

Lucasfilm has numerous movies in the works from various in-demand creators and filmmakers and while the studio has yet to outline their schedule for the next few years, we may now know which post-Sequel Trilogy project is up first. It's been rumored for a while now that coming up next is the series of films from Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff and sources close to WGTC – the same ones who told us Ewan McGregor was returning as Obi-Wan back in May – say that this is still the case and the next Star Wars movie to hit theaters will be the first installment in their trilogy. This also fits with Rian Johnson's latest comments on his own SW trilogy. Reports have cast doubt on it happening several times now and The Last Jedi director's own words about it seemed to suggest that he isn't so sure it's going ahead at this stage, either.
DR Movie News reports: "BREAKING: Theaters nationwide are receiving a 'TENTATIVE' run-time of 2 hours & 35 minutes for #StarWars 'The Rise of Skywalker'." Considering The Last Jedi was 2 hours and 32 minutes, that sounds about right. They added: "Which means that a ticket drop date is imminent (most likely Monday, October 21st)." Meanwhile, it was rumoured the final The Rise of Skywalker trailer would drop on that date, but now it looks very likely to be tomorrow. The leak came from John Boyega's agent, who posted Monday 14th as the trailer release date. Femi Oguns posted a picture of the Star Wars leads with the ESPN Monday Night Football logo. He wrote: "The next @starwarsmovies trailer out Monday. READ MORE: STAR WARS 9 TRAILER WITH MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL? Star Wars 9 Rise of Skywalker tickets presale date and run time REVEALED?

A recent new fan theory argues that Rey's parents are Luke Skywalker and Palpatine's daughter. Reddit user james27503 wrote: "I think we will find out that somehow Luke got up with Palps daughter. Rey is the offspring of Luke and Palpatine's daughter to be named. "Luke worried that the Emperor's spirit or maybe himself or whatever is coming for her, does the only thing he knows to do, hides her away, and removes himself from the Force as not to be used as a method to get to her." Hopefully Palpatine will finally be seen in the new Rise of Skywalker trailer Star Wars 9 poster
