There is good news for Star Wars fans. There will be a new movie. It will be the ninth film. The name of the new movie was announced in Chicago. It is called "The Rise of Skywalker". There is a two-minute trailer of the movie for people to watch on YouTube. It gives people an idea of what the movie will be like. The trailer starts with the words: "Every generation has a legend." The new film has famous actors. Mark Hamill will play Luke Skywalker, and the late Carrie Fisher (who died in 2016) will play Princess Leia. Filmmakers used old footage of Ms Fisher from the movie "The Force Awakens".

Star Wars is among the most successful films ever made. The first one was released in 1977. Over forty years later, the movies are still very popular. The company Lucasfilm made the first six movies. Disney bought the company in 2012 for $4 billion. In 2018, its value was around $65 billion. A film critic said the first Star Wars movie changed Hollywood. It changed how movies were made for many years after. The original Star Wars movie created a new generation of films that used a lot of special effects and a lot of fast and exciting action scenes.
