Joonas Suotamo, who has assumed the role of Chewbacca in the most recent ‘Star Wars’ movies, hints that ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ will include lots of “I Did Not See That Coming” moments to #keepthemontheirtoes.  The Finnish actor said so in response to an IMDB post on Twitter, which asked: “What’s your favorite ‘I Did Not See That Coming’ movie moment?”

Check it out below:

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ is not just another ‘Star Wars’ movie, but the last in the trilogy of trilogies in the “Skywalker Saga,” which kicked off in 1976, before many current fans were even born.  The ‘Star Wars’ saga has had its ups and downs over the years decades but even lapsed fans are sure to turn out to see how it all ends.

The title alone is cryptic, as Luke Skywalker seemingly died in ‘The Last Jedi’.  Of course, technically, Kylo Ren in his own way, carries on the Skywalker bloodline, even though he’s technically a Solo.  But we still don’t know the true parentage of Rey, so that could also be a potential explanation for the title.

The ‘Star Wars’ movies have always delivered surprise twists that viewers didn’t see coming, most famously Darth Vader revealing to Luke that he was his father in ‘Empire Strikes Back’.  It remains to be seen if J.J. Abrams, who helmed ‘The Force Awakens’, can deliver an equally satisfying final chapter to this nine-picture epic.

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ will once again focus on the younger cast, introduced in ‘The Force Awakens’, Kylo Ren/Ben Solo (Adam Driver), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), but expect appearances from Luke Skywalker as a Force Ghost (Mark Hamill), General Leia (the late Carrie Fisher, courtesy of unused footage), and the return of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams).  Anthony Daniels and Jimmy Vee return as C-3PO and R2-D2, respectively.  The new film also features Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Greg Grunberg, Billie Lourd, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, and Kelly Marie Tran.

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ opens on December 20, 2019.
