From the very beginning, the stars of Star Wars have appeared in person to herald the coming of a new movie. Today however, the cast of The Rise Of Skywalker attended the Hollywood premiere of the last movie in the Skywalker saga, started over forty years ago.
Todays young stars are joined by some of the originals, or legacy players as they have been termed. Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams walk the red carpet alongside Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. The movie has been shown at last, now the carpet is rolled up and the popcorn like the senate, has been swept away.
We are merely hours away from the rolling midnight releases around the world. Soon we will have our answers to the many questions brewing since the Ewok celebration at the end of Return Of The Jedi. But make no mistake, even though this is the end of the saga…Star Wars is far from being over.
