The new Star Wars Episode 9 trailer included a laugh track you may’ve recognized.
You probably reacted to the end of the first trailer for The Rise of Skywalker like Han Solo right after getting un-frozen from his carbonite block: “I know that laugh.” But we won’t know what it all means until the movie is released, right?
As it turns out, JJ Abrams, director of this Star Wars film, was more than happy to lend additional confirmation to the hint given in the trailer.
During the Star Wars Celebration 2019 event in Chicago this month, Ian McDiarmid appeared onstage.
He didn’t just appear onstage for a Q session for Star Wars in general.
He wasn’t just there because he’s one of the most important people in the entire Star Wars universe (thus far, anyway).
