“While some details about “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” have been unveiled over the last few months in recent trailers, the greatest secrets of ‘Episode IX’ are being kept closer to Lucasfilm’s chest than Lando Calrissian’s winning Sabacc hand.

Will Rey actually turn to the Dark Side? Or was her cloaked and double-ended lightsabered visage merely a Jedi fever dream? Well, co-writer/director J.J. Abrams insists it’s all truly coming to an end. “We’re not screwing around,” he recently told EW. Thankfully, with less than two months before the film’s release, we now have the final trailer to parse and obsess over.”
