United Airlines Reveals New 'The Rise Of Skywalker' Footage

By: Benjamin Hart

I think it's safe to assume we're all still reeling from the release of the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker earlier this week. As we continue to break down the trailer, even more footage from the film has surfaced, and it comes from the most unlikely source.

Recently United Airlines unveiled a brand new inflight safety video. What's special about this video is the fact that it is completely Star Wars themed and features many tie-ins with The Rise Of Skywalker. The 5-minute long video includes the standard airline safety instructions you're familiar with done with a Star Wars twist.

But what's even more exciting is that the video also features some new footage from The Rise Of Skywalker skillfully placed throughout. While a few shots seem to be produced specifically for United Airlines, there's some that are obviously ripped straight from the movie. Although no dialogue can be heard, the visuals are enough to get us hyped.

The largest and most noticeable bit of footage comes at 1:43 in the video. To the right and in the background you can spot a brand new clip from The Rise Of Skywalker playing on movie screen. The scene shown is the speeder chase on Pasaana which has been teased in multiple trailers(specifically the first and last ones). In the footage we see Poe, Finn and C-3PO onboard a speeder and Rey with Chewbacca on a separate speeder, presumably in the midst of trying to outrun the First Order. @sleemo_ on Twitter shared an isolated version of the segment:

And in addition, @reyishungry posted a cropped version of the footage where you can better see the clip:

Furthermore, you can also spot two other clips in the video that may hint at The Rise Of Skywalker. One shows BB-8 in a jungle environment, while the other features an X-Wing lifting off from (presumably) Pasaana as C-3PO looks on. @sleemo_ shared both of those as well:

The fact that United Airlines is added some Star Wars flair to their flights is amazing unto itself. But getting even more footage from The Rise Of Skywalker with it is unbelievably awesome! It seems Lucasfilm is pulling no punches this time when it comes to commercial tie-ins!

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker opens in theaters on December 20th!
