3 New Behind-the-Scene Images From Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Have you heard of this little film coming out called Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? So here’s the gist; it’s set in a galaxy far, far, away, and features both humans—like, say, Oscar Isaac’s hotshot Resistance pilot Poe Dameron—and aliens. Many of those aliens are created, by hand, by Neal Scanlan, a special effects wizard and make-up artist who has been one of the key figures in the Star Wars universe for years now.

In three new behind-the-scenes photos, we see co-writer and director J.J. Abrams along with Scanlan, Oscar Issac and others looking over one of Scanlan and his team’s creations. We’ve also got co-writer Chris Terrio consulting with Abrams, and a shot of Abrams and Isaac on set.

Needless to say, we’re a mere 7 days from the premiere of The Rise of Skywalker, hence the deluge of promo materials in recent weeks.

Check out the photos below. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premieres on December 20, 2019.
