Star Wars: Episode IX: 7 Things we learned from Vanity Fair

Star Wars: Episode IX: 7 Things we learned from Vanity Fair

Meanwhile, Vanity Fair's Joanna Robinson expands on the relationship between Rey and Kylo Ren. We've gotten full spreads for the newest films in the Skywalker series, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, so it was no surprise that we'd be getting them for The Rise of Skywalker, too. Now, just over a month after we saw the film's first trailer and learned its title at Star Wars Celebration, more details about Episode IX have emerged courtesy of the traditional Vanity Fair preview. Let's just say that they aren't going to be making a stand-alone Captain Tarpals movie anytime soon. We also gained some new insight on how Star Wars itself will be proceeding once the film is out, given by the head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy.

He originally wrote the scenes independent of Lourd's character, Lieutenant Connix, but Fisher's 26-year-old daughter insisted on the opposite.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens briefly introduced the Knights of Ren in Rey's vision, where the armored warriors were seen standing over bodies and were seemingly led by the villainous Kylo Ren. In other words, The Rise of Skywalker will be its own thing, like The Last Jedi, and not as explicitly familiar as The Force Awakens. The Rise of Skywalker Grant portrays First Order officer Allegiant General Pryde, and Russell is masked scoundrel Zorri Bliss. While there was a lot of speculation as to what the filming in Jordan could be since it was a desert planet (possible Jakuu or Tatooine), it seems it an entirely new planet altogether - unless, of course, these are meant to throw fans off. "Abrams, alongside Stunt Coordinator Eunice Huthart, directs the Knights of Ren; elite fearsome enforcers of Kylo Ren's dark will".

Elizabeth Warren turned down a similar chance while branding the network a "hate-for-profit racket". It's important for Democrats to "find people where they are", he said.


The piece also offers fresh looks at the returning Rey, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, Finn, Poe Dameron, C-3PO, BB-8, R2-D2, along with the debuting Jannah, played by Naomi Ackie. They're shown on the Pasaana set.

Full plot details for Episode IX are now under wraps, though the film is set to conclude the Skywalker saga before theatrically released Star Wars films takes a three-year hiatus. "I felt very nostalgic at many, many points...as everyone says, you don't get experiences like this very often".
