Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marketing is gearing up to reach full swing. Courtesy Entertainment Weekly, the world now has a bunch of Rise of Skywalker stills to look at. These stills give us some new looks at the film’s characters whether it’s Finn with Jannah or our new trio of Rey, Finn and Poe. One of the stills has Poe and Chewie staring at something in awe as an unfazed Finn gives a hardened stare. Check all the stills out in high resolution below:
Additionally, Entertainment Weekly has also released a cool set of trilogy covers from each era in the Skywalker saga. There’s one for the prequel trilogy, featuring Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor reprising their roles as Anakin Skywalker, Queen Padme Amidala and Obi-Wan Kenobi respectively. Then there’s the original trilogy with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher’s younger poses being used and melded together to create a new cover. And finally, we have the sequel trilogy characters played by Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran and Naomie Ackie. These are really cool:
With just a few weeks to go for release, expect marketing and the number of articles and pieces coming up about The Rise of Skywalker to ramp up. I’ll be doing my best to get all the disparate coverage together and organized on Appocalypse.
