A new 30-secondpromotional spot dropped on Thanksgiving Day. Some of the footage isn't new, but two things stood out to many fans: A line from Emperor Palpatine and a familiar crash of music from Star Wars legend John Williams.
Palpatine's ever-creepy voice delivers your new favorite all-purpose line, "This will be the final word in the story of Skywalker." Try it now. "This will be the final word in the story of this turkey drumstick." "This will be the final word in this game of Bob's Burgers Clue." Has many uses.
And some fans have decided the Skywalker in the "story of Skywalker" is definitely Ben Solo/Kylo Ren.
But for some, it was all about the music. The brief spot includes composer John Williams' Duel of the Fates, a recurring Star Wars musical theme that debuted during the famed Darth Maul lightsaber battle in 1999's Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the TV spot, Duel of the Fates transitions into The Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme).
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens worldwide Dec. 20, with previews Dec. 19.
