There's A Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker "Sneak Peek" In The New Mandalorian Episode

Get a "sneak peek" at the new movie with Mandalorian Episode 7.


The newest episode of the Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian carries with it a special look at the next Star Wars movie. Collider recently confirmed that the show's upcoming seventh episode will feature a "sneak peek" at The Rise of Skywalker.

The episode was released on Wednesday, December 18, instead of its usual Friday premiere. That's because The Rise of Skywalker launches on a Friday--December 20.

Episode 7 was directed by Deborah Chow, who also directed Episode 3, "The Sin," and the upcoming Obi-Wan TV show. This episode may introduce Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito's character, as images of the actor were included in the press materials obtained by Collider.

Esposito plays the character Moff Gideon. The Episode 7 synopsis alludes to his arrival. "An old rival extends an invitation for The Mandalorian to make peace," it says.

The Rise of Skywalker premieres December 20, and it's expected to be a box office juggernaut. The film also wraps up decades' worth of storytelling, and some of the main cast recently discussed what to expect from the film.
