My Star Wars Gifs and Edits Star Wars Writing

The Rise of Skywalker Official D23 Poster Release!

If you spent the early morning hours refreshing and flicking between social media accounts just to get a glimpse of anything from D23 like I did, you’ll be both elated and disappointed. There was no official footage released from the Disney Star Wars panel on Saturday so as fans, we had nothing more to go on other than tweets from journalists at the event and rumours from fans hastagged with #theriseofskywalker. Personally, I can understand why they didn’t reveal any behind the scenes footage. But at the same time, I still feel kind of starved of information about TRoS.

The good news is that Disney will be posting the Behind the Scenes footage on Monday so Tuesday in my country which is SO AMAZING but I still feel like they really could have given us a little more at D23, especially for the international fans having to wake up at all hours.

A new poster was indeed revealed and I’ve had some time to make edits in the meantime which has kept me happy for now 😂😁However, the fans want what the fans want and I’m just dying to see the BTS footage particularly one part of it which I won’t be discussing here as I plan to write my article about it for The Dorkside of the Force. You can read it there if you want.

Here’s my first edit – textless and colour-boosted:

Edit number two with gradients applied which I think looks really kind of cool if I do say so myself:

And the original poster revealed via Star Wars dot com:

D23 2019 – SPOILERS! The Rise of Skywalker trailer leaks and The Mandalorian Poster!!


I’ve learned in the past from live blogging events relating to Star Wars as they happen has it’s ups and downs. For the most part it’s thrilling and exciting to be seeing footage or media the same time as the rest of the world. As I live in New Zealand, we don’t get a lot of official coverage here for any of these events, not the type of media you want to see as opposed to regurgitated articles from Reddit. As a SERIOUS Star Wars fan, I want what everyone else wants but sometimes, that just can’t happen. So I do the next best thing and wait and watch and refresh all of my social media accounts because I know SOMEONE in the fandom will come through!!

Today is no exception, these video clips are quickly being deleted from Twitter and everywhere else but I still managed to get hold of one. Here is the latest The Rise of Skywalker trailer footage live from D23 2019. Sourced from Instagram @starwarsallthetime:

CAN YOU SEE THIS?? Rey speaks!! And Kylo Ren removing his glove to touch Vader’s Mask!!! THIS IS SO EXCITING I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU…

With that footage we also get the official The Mandalorian poster and it’s beautiful!! Look at the colouring in this poster! From my limited design knowledge, this poster is actually perfect! Sourced from Reddit.
