Movies: Is the Emperor Coming Back in "Star Wars 9"? 

Is the Emperor Coming Back in "Star Wars 9"? 

 The first trailer for"Star Wars 9"came out this weekend, and now we know the official title: "The Rise of Skywalker".

Speaking of Skywalker, there's a voiceover from MARK HAMILL saying, quote, "We'll always be with you. No one's ever really gone." Then the screen goes black, and the clip ends with maniacal laughter.

It turns out that laughter came fromIAN MCDIARMID. . . a.k.a. The Emperor. You know, the guy that Luke and a reformed Darth Vader supposedly killed at the end of"Return of the Jedi".

The trailer was first unveiled at an event called "Star Wars Celebration" in Chicago, and McDiarmid was there to confirm it's his laugh.

The trailer gives us our first look at BILLY DEE WILLIAMS, returning as Lando Calrissean . . . andCARRIE FISHER, who's in the movie thanks to unused footage from the last movie.

By the way . . . this is going to be the last"Star Wars"movie for a while. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy says, quote, "We're going to take a hiatus for a couple of years.

"And we're taking the time to really look at where this is going from the standpoint of a saga."
