D23 'The Rise Of Skywalker' Footage To Debut Monday, Description Available Now

By: Benjamin Hart

New footage from Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker was just released at D23, and we have all the details about what was seen, and when the you will be able to see it!

At the Walt Disney Studios panel we were treated to a stunning poster for The Rise Of Skywalker, as well as some footage from the film shown to the audience. While that footage has not been released online, reactions from those who were actually in the room are intriguing, and downright shocking.

Thankfully Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that will be released online this Monday, August 26th. Exactly when and where the footage will show up on Monday remains unknown. When more details are revealed we will be sure to provide updates.

In the meantime, descriptions of the footage have now found their way online which detail what new pieces of The Rise Of Skywalker were revealed. We have compiled and corroborated a comprehensive description of the footage below based on feedback from many different sources, including Making Star Wars, Skywalking Through Neverland, Bespin Bulletin, /Film, and our reporters Chris Seekell and Dominic Jones who were in attendance. It should be noted these descriptions are based purely on memory and could be inaccurate.

Of course, there's some possibly HUGE SPOILERS ahead. If you don't want to know anything about The Rise Of Skywalker, you may want to stop reading now....


  • The footage shows up at the very end of a sizzle reel that recaps that Skywalker saga.
  • Some of the heroes are seen overlooking a city on Pasaana.
  • Yoda's theme is heard.
  • Vader's breathing is heard.
  • Rey (with her blue Lightsaber) fights Kylo Ren on top of what is believed to be the wreckage of the Death Star surrounded by water (perhaps matching this image).
  • Rey throws her Lightsaber and pulls it back "like Thor".
  • A shot showing countless Star Destroyers in space.
  • C-3PO is seen with red eyes.
  • A shot showing the Rebel fleet exiting Hyperspace.
  • A shot of Carrie Fisher as General Leia.
  • Large red lasers, perhaps from a superweapon, hitting a planet's surface.
  • The footage ends with Rey wearing a black hooded robe and wielding a red double-bladed Lightsaber that folds in the middle (Perhaps a cross between Darth Maul and General Krell's Sabers).
  • As Rey appears, Palpatine can be heard saying, “Your journey nears its end”.
