Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker concludes not just the sequel trilogy, but the entire Skywalker saga. And now director JJ Abrams has teased a big prequels era cameo. Can you guess who may feature?
Speaking with SoraNews24, Abrams was asked who his favourite Star Wars character was, to which he said Han Solo.
The director then asked the interviewer the same question, to which they said Ahsoka.
Abrams replied: “Hmmm, Ahsoka, huh?
“Well, then you’ll probably want to watch closely during The Rise of Skywalker.”

Since she’s not a well-known character to casual Star Wars fans, our best bet is she will take part in a battle during The Rise of Skywalker – but somewhere in the background as an Easter Egg.
After all, Abrams said, “you’ll probably want to watch closely”, perhaps implying her cameo isn’t necessarily obvious.
Presumably, her former master Anakin, now a Force ghost, will also appear in The Rise of Skywalker.
After all, the saga is his and Palpatine’s story which began with Episode I; The Phantom Menace.
And with Palpatine returning in The Rise of Skywalker, it seems likely that Hayden Christensen has reprised his role for a cameo. But in what capacity would Anakin’s Force ghost feature?
Well, Anakin was prophecied to be the Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force.
Technically, he’s not done that yet (well, with the new canon anyway), so maybe his Force ghost will destroy Palpatine?
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker will be released in UK cinemas on December 19, 2019.
