New Star Wars Featurette

The marketing machine for The Rise of Skywalker is underway. We’ve already seen a few lengthy featurettes featuring footage that spans the whole saga. I understand why they’re doing this. They’re really trying to hit home that this is the last of the saga, but I don’t know if I like putting all this stuff from the original trilogy into a trailer to sell a new movie. These are well done, but I don’t know that we need to dwell on so much nostalgia for a marketing campaign.

Take a look for yourself.

Sticking The Rise of Skywalker name on it even sort of seems like a stretch.

Although, this clip does give us one pretty big detail that was long suspected. There is a quick moment where you see present day Warwick Davis in the Wicket costume, which seems to have a graying face. That’s probably a pretty strong indication that we are going to see Ewoks again.
