Disney has released a new D23 Special Look teaser for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The movie is set to hit theaters on December 20, 2019.
Though full plot details have not been revealed yet, the story is being billed as the final chapter in the Skywalker saga, and the new footage appears to reveal a turn to the dark side for the trilogy's hero, Rey (Daisy Ridely).

Beyond Episode IX, Disney is also developing a new trilogy of Star Wars films with director Rian Johnson. In addition, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are also working on new films for the franchise. Meanwhile, a show titled The Mandalorian from executive producer Jon Favreau will debut on the Disney+ streaming service in November, followed by a Star Wars: Rogue One prequel series starring Diego Luna and an Obi-Wan Kenobi show starring Ewan McGregor at a later date.
