Disney & Lucasfilm Kick Off 100 Day Countdown to The Rise of Skywalker
Let the countdown begin, while we are 100 days from the ascent of Skywalker. Lucasfilm has officially launched the countdown, with a teaser focusing on the duel between Kylo Ren and Rey, which we saw in the recently released D23 trailer. The brief trailer was shared with the following legend:
"100 days before the end of the saga … #TheRiseOfSkywalker is in the cinema on December 19!"
The Ascension of Skywalker ] arrives in the United Kingdom on December 19, while the film officially leaves the United States on December 20. However, given the popularity of the Thursday night previews, the film will be mainly in theaters on the evening of the 19th. . So, anyway, we are at this 100-day countdown. And, even if the conclusion of this consecutive trilogy is just on the horizon, there are still many questions and few valuable answers. How will the Skywalker saga end? Is it possible to summarize satisfactorily more than four decades of narrative in a single film?
What we know for sure, is that J.J. Abrams is back at the bar for this payment. Abrams was recruited by Disney after the purchase of Lucasfilm for $ 4 billion to lead what would become The Awakening of the Force . Few manifestations of pop culture have generated the hype of Episode VII and few films have been so successful at the box office, the long-awaited return to a galaxy generating more than $ 2 billion worldwide. Once Colin Trevorrow ( Jurassic World ) was dismissed from Episode IX, it made quite sense to appeal to Abrams so that he could finish his debut.
Yet many have changed in recent years. Rian Johnson took over from the writing and directing of Star Wars Episode VIII, which we now know as The Last Jedi . Although this is a major commercial success, the entry into the center of this trilogy remains a source of division for fans. A small vocal group has made things particularly ugly since the release of the film. Whatever the case may be, Lucasfilm now has the unique challenge of trying to please those who loved The Last Jedi and those who did not like it. It is difficult to close a story, but it poses an additional problem.
