Yesterday, on what would have been Carrie Fisher’s 63rd birthday, Disney unveiled the final trailer for her final film as Leia Organa, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Helmed by J.J. Abrams, the much-anticipated sequel had Star Wars fans rejoicing at the return of Fisher alongside Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, and Oscar Isaac. Then there were tears.
Here’s a look at how Twitter reacted to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, starting with a wish for Rey.
The thirst is strong with these ones, who noticed a nod to Pride and Prejudice.
Finn is an inspiration.

The return of Rose Tico reignites excitement…and haters.
Presumably they put that tiny shot of Rose in #TheRiseOfSkywalker trailer to remind certain 'fans' of their boycott commitments…— Last Film Seen (@LastFilmSeen) October 22, 2019
With #TheRiseOfSkywalker trending and yhe movie coming soon, I feel the need to ask something: What was the point of Rose again?— James (@Jamez84111889) October 22, 2019
C-3PO gave us the feels.
Do not forget that I was your very first friend, Threepio. #TheRiseOfSkywalker— Darth Vader (@DarthVader) October 22, 2019
