1. Keri Russel’s character

A glimpse into Keri Russel’s character in the final trailer would be amazing. Ever since Russel was cast, her role has been shrouded in mystery. Rumors have gone around for ages as to who she might be and how she fits into the story, but the truth is we are no closer to knowing anything about her since she was first cast; other than her character name Zorri Bliss.

Entertainment Weekly recent revealed a new look image of Russel in character. An image that still doesn’t give us a clearer idea as to who she is and how she fits into the Skywalker story. Hopefully, Monday nights new trailer will give us something.


2. The Emperor

He was the master of Darth Maul and Count Dooku before becoming the master of Darth Vader. The mastermind of Order 66 and the near extinction of the Jedi. Sheev Palpatine, a.k.a The Emperor, is viewed, not only among the Star Wars fandom, but pop culture in general, as the master of manipulation and the face of evil.

And he is back in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!

It was confirmed after the initial Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer Ian McDiarmid will return in the final installment of the Skywalker saga, but we are yet to see him in any footage. Hopefully, we will get a glimpse of The Emperor this coming Monday.
