The countdown continues to the release of the closing of “The Skywalker Saga” with “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” opening on 12/20. As I’ve already noted, a film of this level finds a lot of clips and insights and TV Spots. That being said, our readers can examine THIS LINK to be on point with every item that’s gone online so far on PiercingMetal. This latest reveal is a “Special Look” clip so it gets a posting of its own. I’ll follow the footage with the premise, casting and the Official Theatrical Poster. Enjoy.
The Premise: The remnants of the Resistance face the First Order once again—while reckoning with the past and their own inner turmoil. Meanwhile, the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaches its climax, altogether bringing the Skywalker saga to a definitive end.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having been a “Star Wars” fan since the very beginning I have to say that this special look clip got me in the feels. When the first “Star Wars” film opened way back in the bygone years of 1977 it was only called “Star Wars” and it was not yet “Star Wars: A New Hope” at all. I saw this film very early in the theatrical run at the Ziegfeld Theater with my Grandmother and I guess I would have been around “12” years old at the time. I don’t have my original ticket for that since it wasn’t my first movie of course and as I mentioned during a reminisce about my very first concert, one didn’t usually keep such things. Now I keep all of that stuff and in case you wondered, my first concert would be the legendary KISS and be witnessed the following summer of 1978 (discussed HERE). Truth be told that was not a bad year of life for me in terms of the entertainment that would stick with me until this very day. This was a wonderful clip and be sure to get your tickets ASAP if you wish to see “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” on its earliest days. Until next time.
