Movie Trailer Monday: The Rise of Skywalker

By way of Mashable, the final trailer for Rise of Skywalker is out, and yes, I have “big questions . . . ugly crying”:

If you didn’t feel a lump in your throat during the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer released Monday night, check your pulse. 

The first jerker of tears is the simple fact that this is it: the last ever full trailer that will ever be released for a Skywalker saga movie. Star Wars Episode IX isn’t just the end of a trilogy — it’s the end of 3 trilogies and 44 years of storytelling. George Lucas couldn’t get the rights to make Flash Gordon like he wanted, and now we’re here.
