New STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER TV Spots Reveal Carrie Fisher and Jedi Mind-Tricks

The next Star Wars movie arrives in less than three weeks and Lucasfilm has released a few new television spots for the movie. They include Rey (Daisy Ridley) using a Jedi mind-trick, flying stormtroopers and the new footage of the red-armored Sith-Troopers.

One of the biggest moments is the one which shows Carrie Fisher holding Luke's lightsaber. It was created using unused footage from the previous films and is achingly beautiful with Carrie Fisher's death. Seeing her holding the last remnants of the Jedi Order is incredibly powerful.

Director J.J. Abrams returned to the trilogy after working on The Force Awakens. The commitment not to use the digital creation of the actress led to some unexpected moments. "There are scenes where she’s interacting with other characters in a way that is uncanny," Abrams told Total Film (via SlashFilm). "Hopefully, if it works, it will be an invisible thing and if you didn’t know, you would never know. But we got to tell the story with Leia that we would have told had Carrie lived. And that’s kind of incredible."

Star Wars has also released a featurette using behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew over the decades. It ends with the phrase "episode 9 will be a conclusion of a story that is over 40 years in the making".

The clips revealed have been pretty incredible and this all makes me even more excited for the film.
