Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of an era. It’s not just saying goodbye to Rey, Finn, and Poe; it’s saying goodbye to the characters that started it all. Even C-3PO got emotional during this trailer. What did Star Wars fans think of this final glimpse into The Rise of Skywalker? Here’s what people are saying on Twitter.

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ premiered its final trailer on Oct. 21, 2019

It has been about two years since Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiered. Now, the wait is almost over. Star Wars premiered the last trailer for their movie on Oct. 21, 2019. Within a day, it jumped to the top trending spot on YouTube, earning over five million views on the platform. Needless to say, fans are excited for the final film in this sequel trilogy.

Not only did fans rush to watch the trailer, but they rushed to purchase tickets online. When Monday Night Football began, tickets for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker went on sale. According to Atom Tickets, this film sold 45% more tickets on the website in the first hour of pre-sales than 2019’s blockbuster, Avengers: Endgame.

Star Wars fans got emotional on social media, sharing their love for some characters

Being that this is the last trailer for this upcoming film, fans shared their excitement on Twitter. Still, the trailer left some with more questions than they started with. One Twitter user said, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer was awesome. Can’t wait. But can it change the fact that Kylo Ren is a horrible villain who’s never been ‘cool?’ Because that would’ve solved all the issues with the new movies.”

Other fans posted theories regarding the plot of this theory, one fan tweeting, “don’t y’all see? Palpatine thinks Reylo coming together is their undoing and it’s basically [the] historical pattern for the big bad villain to be proven wrong. Their coming together will instead be Palpatine’s undoing.”

“That little step back is freaking me out real bad. She’s cowering, she never cowers! She tried to jump Snoke twice. How bad does Palpatine actually look? What is he telling her? Where is her lightsaber,” another fan asked on Twitter.
