Disney’s D23 Expo featured an exclusive Star Wars’ The Rise of Skywalker trailer with investors hoping that the news will help prevent the DIS stock from plunging further.

Every good thing must one day come to an end. For Star Wars, the end is near. Over the weekend, Lucasfilm shared an exclusive Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker at Disney’s D23 Expo. The trailer was then published online for all the Star Wars fans around the world on Monday. It is the final film of the latest Star Wars trilogy.

The ‘special look’ into the film seems more sizzle reel than trailer since it features a lot of footage from the past Star Wars movies. Also, it is about the end highlighting on how the previous eight films in the Star Wars franchise will come down to the epic final installment.

It ends with new footage showing the heroes together taking a field trip to a desert locale. Spaceships also bleep-bloop-blink at light speed while the Jannah character is also analyzed. On the other hand, Rey and Kylo Ren are engaged in an epic battle.

However, the stunner in that trailer is a scene where a dark hooded figure appears. According to dark hooded figures from Star Wars’ past, the figure appears evil. As the trailer ends, viewers learn that it is Rey holding a double red lightsaber. Could it be that she has turned to the Dark Side? Maybe. However, it could be just a tricky ‘dream’ or ‘vision’.

The first teaser for The Rise of Skywalker was released in April and the latest one builds on it. However, it will not pick up immediately after The Last Jedi film’s events that was released in 2017. Since time has passed, it raises questions about how the characters’ separate journeys will all come together in the finale.

The Rise of Skywalker will debut on December 20, 2019, in cinemas.

DIS Stock

Each year, Disney movies rake in millions of dollars since they always make their presence known at the box office. As we published earlier, in 2019 alone, the Disney stock (DIS) has hit a 24% year-to-date (YTD) figure. DIS currently sits at $134.61. Although the YTD figures look promising, it was at $147.15 just about a month ago.

Shareholders are unhappy with the performance in August. But, DIS seems to be on the road to recovery with the stock trading up 2.20% currently. Investors hope that the release of Mandalorian on Disney+ and news about Star Wars’ The Rise of Skywalker will revive the DIS stock.
