Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is only days away from release, and I cannot wait to see this movie, and its director J.J. Abrams has been doing some press ahead of its release.
The film will be hitting UK cinemas on December 19th, and people want to know as much as they can about the film before going into the cinema (I mean, some people do. I like to know as little as possible).
So, with this in mind, what do you think the first spoken word of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be?
Abrams was being interviewed by Stephen Colbert on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and Colbert asked the director if he could reveal the first spoken word of the new Star Wars movie.
Abrams went on to confirm that the film begins with the word ‘at’, and he then added: ‘there are, like, six or seven words that follow.”
Colbert then theorised that this word would be spoken by a new character, one we haven’t seen before, describing something that happened before who’s setting up the moment we’re about to watch in voiceover.
We now know what Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s first spoken word is
Colbert was very confident that his theory is spot on, and you know what, it might be.
Abrams was the man who brought Star Wars back onto the big screen with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and he’s becoming something of a cult hero for having done that.
Not only that, but his film wasn’t half bad, which was a huge plus considering how poorly the prequel films were received.
Many people did, however, claim that The Force Awakens was just a rehash of Star Wars: A New Hope, which in many ways it was.
But, you know what, if it ain’t broke, why fix i?
