While sharing the first officially released clip from the hotly anticipated final film in the Skywalker Saga, Abrams revealed the surprising turn of events on the U.S. talk show.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in theaters December 20, which means we can expect more talk show shenanigans from the film's cast over the next few weeks. Even though The Mandalorian story is unlikely to ever cross paths with the one from the last installment in the new trilogy, The Rise of Skywalker star Daisy Ridley would definitely have preferred working with Baby Yoda than with Porgs.
One of our actors, I won't say which one-I want to, but I won't-left it under their bed and it was found by someone who was cleaning their place. In the latest clip they've released, we actually get a look into an actual scene from the movie. Star Wars: The Force Awakens might have revealed the weapon to be in the possession of Maz Kanata, however, the film never really explained how it ended up with the character.
As they try to make their escape, the group are soon inundated with blasts from the Phaser guns on the stormtroopers' vehicles. Will director J.J. Abrams rely too heavily on nostalgia (a claim often lobbed at his "The Force Awakens")?
What did you guys think of the Star Wars recap rap from Daisy Ridley?
The director also spoke again about how excited he was to discover this cut footage Carrie Fisher could serve this film and its story when he said, "There was no way to end this Skywalker saga without Leia, it was impossible".
The actress appeared on Jimmy Fallon's speak present to advertise subsequent month's The Rise of Skywalker, earlier than bursting into the rap with Fallon serving as a hype man within the background.
Rise of Skywalker is almost in theaters, and to help us get over that last hump before release, we've got a clip from the movie!
She added, "It's a long process, but we always look for that core group to arrive at solidarity in a decision, and we got to that on this pretty quickly".
