Return of the Jedi eventually went with a more conventional sci-fi chair command chair for its climactic sequence where Emperor Palpatine torments young Luke Skywalker.
Disney just released the final Rise of Skywalker trailer, and we get some big teases from the final chapter.
The seat that sits amid branches of a claw-like outcropping was originally sketched by legendary Star Wars artist Ralph McQuarrie in 1981. And Abrams explained that while his film will be a definitive ending, it may still offer some new beginnings.
Based on that epic new trailer, it's clear that nobody was screwing around here.
The Avengers: Endgame went on to haul in a record $357.1 million for its open weekend in the US, so it will be interesting to see how well The Rise of Skywalker does; back in 2015, Abrams' The Force Awakens brought in almost $250 million, with The Last Jedi bringing in only $220 million. Fisher, who died in 2016 at the age of 60, appears in the film in a performance pieced together through unused footage from "The Force Awakens".
The two-and-a-half minute trailer also hints that this might be the last of C-3PO.
Kelly Marie Tran, (Rose Tico) and Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix) feature just once in this trailer, despite being two of the few survivors of The Last Jedi. You're here for one thing, to watch the trailer.
Star Wars movies don't like to stay in the same spot, and once again it looks like viewers will be whisked around a new selection of computer generated planets.
