Ahead of today’s D23 Disney Movies panel, the fine folks at Lucasfilm released a brand new poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The new poster features Rey and Kylo Ren facing off on some sort of machine, with Emperor Palpatine’s face filling the background above.
The excitement level is now starting to ratchet up for the film! Are you ready? Hopefully the panel will bring yet another look at the film that will be available to D23 attendees and fans that can’t attend as well! Look for more about the upcoming film soon, and until then, enjoy the new poster below!
