The release of The Rise of Skywalker is getting near. With only a few more weeks away, Star Wars fans are curious to see how director J.J. Abrams will conclude the Skywalker Saga. But the cast of Episode IX might help us know what’s about to unfold in the film.

The Rise of Skywalker cast Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Kelly Marie Tran, Naomi Ackie, and Keri Russell recently made an appearance at Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge along with Abrams. They were given multiple questions about the movie, but towards the end of the interview, the group was asked to show their reaction to The Rise of Skywalker’s ending without using words, only facial expressions.

Abrams turned around to check the rest of the group’s reactions, which seems very different from each other. You can check it out below.


Based on their facial expressions and gestures, one could tell that this film is going to be a rollercoaster of emotions. Ackie showed that she seemed confused with the ending, same with Daniels who placed his hand out to show some kind of a “what?” gesture. Russell seems to be implying that she got emotional, while Tran seemed taken aback.

Ridley just seemed to be expressing a “well…” or “eh” reaction, but can’t quite keep her facial expression because she was about to burst into laughter. On the other hand, Boyega looked like he was spacing out, with his hand clasped together, showing that he seems devastated. While Isaac closed his eyes, somewhat implying that he was dismayed.

Seeing the group’s reaction is definitely interesting and will get many fans curious about what’s actually about to go down in Episode IX.

Who among the cast would you think you would have a similar reaction to upon seeing the film? Tell us in the comments below!
