Everybody loves a new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker TV spot, and this Thanksgiving gave us easily the best one we’ve seen yet.
I would go as far to say that this is the best The Rise of Skywalker trailer we’ve seen so far, and it’s only 30-seconds long.
Why is this TV spot so epic, you ask? Well, it’s got all to do with what’s shown, what’s said, and the music they use.
First off, this TV spot uses the best thing to come out of the Star Wars prequels, John Williams’ song, The Duels of the Fates, which was first heard in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
The film itself wasn’t brilliant, but the score was excellent, and they reused the incredible score in this new TV spot.
It does make me wonder whether they’ll use it in the actual movie, and I really hope they do, because it’s just brilliant.
There there’s more Palpatine voiceover, and what he says in this The Rise of Skywalker TV spot is really interesting.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s new TV spot brings back Duels of the Fates
Here’s what he says in the new TV spot in full:
This will be the final word in the story of Skywalker.
Now, if that line doesn’t give you chills, then I’m not sure what will as far as Star Wars is concerned.
It’s an epic line, and I know I was a bit down on Palpatine returning to begin with, but I just cannot wait to see him in action in this movie now.
Yes, my mind has been turned towards the Dark Side of bringing back characters for nostalgia’s sake.
That said, the more I think about it, the more sense Palpatine’s return makes, especially since they’re billing this movie as the very final chapter in the Skywalker saga.
The Skywalker saga is intrinsically linked to Palpatine, and it would make sense for a Skywalker to have to battle him one last time.
