Today, Director/Writer J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy were joined by stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Oscar Isaac, Billy Dee Williams, Naomi Ackie, Joonas Suotamo and Anthony Daniels, and droids BB-8 and D-0, for a panel discussion at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, moderated by Stephen Colbert.

The biggest news was the title of the final installment of the Skywalker saga was finally revealed, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, along with the first trailer for the film a brand-new teaser poster.

This first teaser gives us a kick ass leap from Daisy Ridley’s Rey, our final look at Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia as well as glimpses of the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, and the evil and sinister laugh of none other than Ian McDiarmid’s General Palpatine.

Disney will open Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in U.S. theaters on December 20th.

Check out the teaser and poster below.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
