    The D23 Disney Studios panel is here and they brought some long awaited goods for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker along for the show.





    Its feels like it's been forever since we got the first teaser back at Celebration and fans have been clamoring for another look at what JJ Abrams has in store for us to cap off the Skywalker saga. And today, much like with past releases, Lucasfilm decided to whet the appetites of those in attendance with a sizzle reel and a cool new poster to go along with it.  These sizzle reels have become something of a tradition between the release of the first teaser and first trailer.  And they always are chock full of good little details to pick out.  And this new poster shows off the source of that ominous cackle from the end of the first teaser.



    As of yet, Disney has only publicly released the poster, but here is a brief description of the footage from someone in the room.








    Rey wielding a double lightsaber is something we have all been wanting to see since we first saw her staff in The Force Awakens. Thank you JJ for this. It's curious though that the lightsaber was red and she was wearing dark clothes. But don't let JJ fool you. Everything is possible. This could be just some kind of a vision of something that will never take place in the real timeline of the movie's story. The possibilities are many.



    Hopefully the rest of us get to see the footage soon, but in the meantime...how do we like that poster? Let us know in the comments your thoughts on the poster and stay tuned to SWNN as we'll bring you the footage as soon as it gets publicly released.





    UPDATE!



    It seems that according to EW the sizzle reel will be officially revealed on Monday!!!









    Correction:


    We initially reported the new footage as a Behind the Scenes reel based on initial reactions in the room. Having seen the descriptions that have surfaced since the panel, we have updated to more correctly refer to the footage as a Sizzle reel. From what we can see through there is no BTS footage included. Check back Monday for the official release of the footage.

    Are you sure that’s palpatine? It looks like it could be someone with a beard (a blue flame beard), which I think is them suggesting it might be Luke. I don’t think it is, they are giving us plenty to play with with those visuals.

    My other big question is what are they dueling on? Is a lightsaber or a piece of wreckage?

    Lol Wut.

    He has no eyebrows and he has no beard (even the blue flares don't match the face).. It's clearly Palpatine.

    But the piece of the Death Star is clearly shaped like a lightsaber on purpose.

    That’s the mouth not the flame-maybe-beard-but probably-not

    I said they were playing with visuals

    Go back and look at TLJ teaser poster and it has a strikingly similar composition.

    Again, I don’t think that’s Luke, but that head is translucent, so the eyebrow thing isn’t 100% valid. The yellow eyes and droopy skin under the eyes are seemingly confirming Palpatine, but don’t forget Anakin had yellow eyes after he turned and they made Hamill look very worn out in TFA and TLJ , so those faces aren’t as dissimilar as one thinks they are (especially since Old Luke and the emperor have never shared a scene).

    Snoke, the Emperor, and old Luke are pretty worn out physically...have a feeling that Force use doesn’t sustain as much as advertised, though magic/power sucking life out of the user is a very old trope in fiction. I wonder if they play with that in this movie

    My main point is that transparent head in the top third of poster is crafted carefully to invoke Luke, who is a Force ghost. Palpatine is alive, but is this poster implying he doesn’t have a body yet?

    The poster is super cool. I’m ready to see the sizzle real especially Rey with the red sabers. I have a feeling in the movie it won’t be how it seems in the sizzle reel

    Wild speculation alert: perhaps the blue flame isn't force lighting, but from this cauldron looking thing. At :23 seconds.

    As Sidious hasn't aged from that picture and he's tinted blue I'm gonna assume at the start of the film at least he's a ghost and judging by the flame probably stuck in the world between worlds from rebels. If that was physical Palpatine I'd have hoped he looked even more decrepit and warped, that Rey and Kylo are colour and Palpatine is ghostly is another hint.

    How this all plays out in the end I have no idea but it is exciting.

    So, there wasn't a BTS reel released?

    Sith can't be "Force ghosts".

    I think it is very highly unlikely that JJ is going to use something as esoteric as the world between worlds in his movie.

    But I don't see it
