Now that The Mandalorian has been birthed into the world, Lucasfilm and Disney are hellbent on ramping up the hype machine for The Rise of Skywalker, so prepare for a deluge of new materials these next three weeks or so.

Just this morning we got our first actual clip from the film, which you can watch above. It appears to take place while the action is on Pasanna, and it’s of a chase sequence we’ve seen teased in the trailers. You really get to see the First Order tread speeders in action, as well as the new First Order Jump Trooper units, who provide a bit of humor as the heroes become amazed at their new abilities.

There’s also a really awesome look back at all things Skywalker Saga Star Wars below. The video offers a few behind the scenes style looks at Rise, but it’s mostly meant to be a nostalgic look back at the beginnings of Star Wars, and how this final film is meant to wrap all those decades of storytelling up.
