star wars: The Rise of Skywalker” will bring to an end the Star Wars trilogy that began in 1977. A new trailer was released recently for the movie that comes in December, and you can watch it further down in this article. Director J.J. Abrams has sprung a surprise on the fans by revealing that they will see Carrie Fisher in this movie. She died in December 2016 at the age of 60 and it was possible to bring her back to life thanks to the discovery of some unused footage of her from an earlier film “The Force Awakens.”

USA Today clarifies that in the course of a panel discussion at the Star Wars Celebration, director J.J. Abrams disclosed about the finding of the “weird miracle” pertaining to Carrie Fisher from the “Force Awakens" that prompted him to weave a story around those scenes.

He admits – “Princess Leia lives in this film in a way that's mind-blowing to me." The new trailer has a scene where she is hugging Daisy Ridley’s crying Rey. It is an emotionally packed scene and fans might have difficulty controlling their tears.

Sci-fi movies are always huge draws

Any movie in the sci-fi genre have always been crowd pullers and the Star Wars series is no exception.

They are not only fast paced but have a high level of animation and keep the audience fascinated by the visuals of an imaginary world in outer space. "Star Wars" started its journey in 1977 and will likely end with “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” It is an American space-opera film produced, co-written and directed by J. J. Abrams and with it, curtains will come down on the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy.

The previous two were "The Force Awakens" and "The Last Jedi."

USA Today goes on to add the thoughts of Anthony Daniels, who portrayed the character of droid C-3PO opposite Carrie Fisher from the beginning. His first reading of the script was at London’s Pinewood Studios. His mind went back to the actress who was “sweet and kind and generous and loving.” Oscar Isaac, who is in the role of Poe Dameron had shared screen space with Leia in the last two Movies.

He loves to see Fisher in the new trailer and becomes emotional. It is obvious from reactions of her co-actors that they hold her in high esteem. She may not be there in person but is always there in their thoughts.

Original wins over computer generated (CG) character

According to Sky News, director J.J. Abrams, while interacting with fans at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, said that the way Leia lives on in Episode IX is "mind-blowing." Fans wanted to see Leia in the final installment and were keen to know how the episode would cope with her absence.

Abrams said in order to have Leia, he had some options before him like going in for a computer-generated (CG) character or recasting, or just having her disappear. However, none of these was necessary. Carrie Fisher who plays the role of Leia Organa died in 2016 after she finished shooting for "The Last Jedi." There was some unused footage of "The Force Awakens" shot in 2015 and he decided to use that in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
