Here’s an opinion from someone who has already seen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Richard E. Grant absolutely loves it.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is nearly here. We can actually say that it’s just two weeks away.
In roughly two weeks — and a few days — many Star Wars fans will have watched the epic conclusion of the Skywalker Saga. It seems some of the cast has gotten a screening already and Richard E. Grant, who plays Allegient General Pryde in the movie, has some exciting words.
Grant took to his social media to upload this video:

He doesn’t give away any spoilers, but his excitement and joy after having just watched the movie is contagious. With TV spot after TV spot coming about the movie, Disney should probably just play Grant’s video on loop.
Grant says “Nothing prepares you for this. … It’s absolutely everything you hoped it would be.”
He also said he went through a slew of emotions where he fist pumped in some parts and cried in others.
While Grant isn’t going to bad mouth the movie, when I see something like this I am also reminded that these actors don’t actually have to do it. This is a raw, emotional reaction from Grant. He’s in a euphoric state over seeing a movie he’s in, but at no time does it actually feel that way.
Here’s somebody who genuinely seems to love the movie and is excited for fans to watch it as well.
At this point, the movie cannot come here soon enough.
Also, if you were looking for another TV spot, here’s one that was posted earlier today titled “Dagger.” There’s a dagger in it.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20 worldwide.
