The amount of new promo material for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has become too staggering for one man to cover it all post by post, so I’m going with a roundup style feature for the latest dump of news and promotions.

Up first is an interview with Ian McDiarmid on how he was asked about reprising Palpatine in The Rise of Skywalker.

Then you have a new interview with composer John Williams, who talks about how the cast motivates his choices.

If that’s not enough there’s also a new trailer that is loaded with fresh bits of footage. So much so, that you should probably skip out on it at this point, the movie is only a few days away now. I’m an asshole though, so it’s embedded below.

Finally, for good measure, here’s new looks at the tread speeder, and an electro-pod!

Just kidding, here’s a new TV spot, titled, “She”.
