An Intergalactic Honor for The Hit House to Be Part of This Final Star Wars Series Trailer

Since we were young Padwans the Star Wars universe has been a guiding light in our existence. It has helped us confront fears, it has taught us about an undeniable Force within all of us, & it has brought us together… but now it ends. Through it all The Hit House has had the distinct honor & privilege to contribute to various Star Wars trailers, & now with the final trailer it has all seemed like destiny. In this ending we take one last look at our friends, our family, & our lives as the truly epic Star Wars saga concludes.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, directed by J.J. Abrams, is the 3rd & final installment of the sequel trilogy. In it, the Resistance faces off against the First Order as the Jedi finally meet their near eternal foe, the evil Sith. The Rise of Skywalker begins one year after Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as the tattered remains of the Resistance regroup, deal with their pasts, & their private & interpersonal issues. Starring in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Joonas Suotama as Chewbacca, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Ian McDiarmid as Palpatine/Darth Sidious, & Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian.

On December 20, the Force will be with us all, always. While it is an ending, we see it as also an opportunity for a new beginning, but all that remains to be written. For now, we focus on that best gift we could ever receive for the holidays, the viewing of this final film, & as we watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Hit House shall think back & cherish all blood, sweat, & tears that went into contributing through all the years for this most beloved of tales. As Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker states, “This Christmas, the saga will end, the story lives forever.”
