There is good news for Star Wars fans. There will be a new movie, called "The Rise of Skywalker". There is a two-minute trailer of the movie on YouTube. It gives people an idea of what it will be like. The trailer starts with the words: "Every generation has a legend." The new film has famous actors. One is the late Carrie Fisher, who died in 2016. She will play Princess Leia. Filmmakers used scenes of Ms Fisher from an older movie.

Star Wars is one of the most successful films ever. The first one was released in 1977. The movies are still very popular today. The company Lucasfilm made the first six movies. Disney bought it in 2012 for $4 billion. Now its value is around $65 billion. The first Star Wars movie changed how movies are made. New films started to use a lot of special effects. They also had more and more action scenes.
