Just try not to cry at General Leia hugging Rey. Just try!

The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer — it ain’t Episode IX anymore! — is terrific. And it’s got some killer images in it. Rey versus a TIE fighter! Kylo Ren versus an army! Kylo Ren fixing his helmet! (Guess J.J. Abrams wasn’t a fan of that part of The Last Jedi.) BB-8 and his new buddy D-O! Luke’s medal for blowing up the Death Star! Mad Max: Fury Poe! (Once you see it, you’ll get it.) And, yes we’ve got Carrie Fisher in her final performances as General Leia, giving Rey a big hug.

Here are all the new images from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker so far (along with the teaser poster):

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in theaters on December 20, 2019. Here’s the trailer one more time but let’s be honest you’re going to watch it more than once (or twice, or ten times):
