Twitter Reacts to 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Teaser Trailer With Memes, Jokes and Outrage

Twitter users were sent into a tizzy after a new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker dropped. The teaser debuted Friday and will be the final film of the series trilogy beginning with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015.

Not only will the 2019 film feature Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) take on villain Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver), but it looks like Emperor Palpatine has made a comeback–despite being killed by Luke Skywalker during Return of the Jedi.

"THE RISE OF SKYWALKER!!! Just watched this trailer with a crowd of thousands of fans in Chicago," Kevin McCarthy tweeted. "After the evil laugh from Palpatine, Ian McDiarmid took the stage and said: "Roll it again!" Insane! The rushing screen left camera shot blew my mind. Wow."

"It's called The Rise of Skywalker because they finally defeat Palpatine and escape the figurative curse that's been placed over them since he set his eyes on Anakin," one Twitter user noted.

James Dyer also took the time to clear up any confusion regarding Palpatine's return and confirmed that Star Wars director J.J. Abrams is "thrilled."

"In case there's any lingering ambiguity from the trailer (and McDiarmid's appearance at the panel!), I can 100% confirm that Palpatine is back in The Rise Of Skywalker as I just asked JJ," Dyer tweeted. "He's thrilled - and slightly incredulous- that McDiarmid's presence on set didn't leak."

While most fans voiced their excitement of the upcoming trilogy finale, there were some who were quick to point out some mistakes.

This will be the last Star Wars trailer fans can expect to see for a while. On Thursday, Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Lucasfilm will take a break from new Star Wars movies after Star Wars: Episode IX.

"We have not announced any specific plans for movies thereafter," Iger said during a Bloomberg Television interview. "There are movies in development, but we have not announced them."

Instead, the next few Star Wars projects will be on TV, specifically new streaming service Disney+, which will have multiple Star Wars shows, including the live-action The Mandalorian. "We will take a pause, sometime, and reset," Iger said, "because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie. There will be other Star Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus."

Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker is slated to hit theaters December 20.
