Storm Troopers Wield Jetpacks In Epic New ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Clip That Will Get You AMPED On This Fine Monday Morning



Folks, there are few Mondays during the course of the year that tastes as sweet as this one, so soak it in while you can.

It’s Thanksgiving week. Only three or four days of work depending on how dope your bosses are. You get to be with your family and perhaps put down a couple of crispy bois with your buddies back home. There’s food — lots of fucking food. There’s also tons of sports this week (looking at you, Champions League). Maybe you gamble a little bit. Take a nap. Eat some leftovers, put down a brew or two, and nap again. You get the point: Thanksgiving Week = fucking suhWEET and that includes this very Monday morning.

Mix in a new clip from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that features Rey, Poe, Finn and the gang being hunted down by Storm Troopers and yourself the ingredients for what may be the best Monday morning of the year. It’s the little things in life, folks.

Anyway, like I promised, here’s some Storm Troopers whippin’ around in jetpacks.

In addition to this 30-second clip, Disney also dropped a “Special Look” at The Rise of Skywalker over the weekend that pays homage to the last 40-plus years of the iconic franchise.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker — the ninth and final installment of the Skywalker saga — is directed by J.J. Abrams (who also directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and will star Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and others in their famed Star Wars roles.
