With just a week to go until the premiere of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, bits, and pieces of new clips from the film, behind-the-scenes footage, and cast and crew interviews have been running rampant left and right. The Star Wars fandom is truly a rush of energy, excitement, and anticipation in these final days leading up to Episode IX.

In addition to the exclusive Amazon Special Look video that was revealed earlier today, Lucasfilm has shared a haunting Kylo Ren-centric clip.

Check out the footage below.

Though we have long since known that Palpatine would be playing a part in the film, his role has been mostly kept under wraps outside of vague references to his presence in trailers and marketing. Now, a widely speculated theory seems to have finally been confirmed — Palpatine may have had a hand in the fall of Ben Solo and the rise of Kylo Ren.

What other questions will The Rise of Skywalker answer? Is Kylo Ren the true villain of this story, or will Ben Solo find some sort of redemption?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will officially hit theaters worldwide on December 20, and is set to premiere in select countries December 18-19.
