While Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ramping up their international marketing campaign, this exact film is titled slightly different in Japan.
According to a fanbase Twitter account, Star Wars Stuff, the title in Japan is Star Wars: Dawn of Skywalker. This title hinted a new life for Skywalkers in the movie.
It’s Not The First Time
The different Japanese title is not the first. Different title for foreign translation of Star Wars franchise had been happened before in Spain and Italy. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is titled Star Wars: Los Ultimos Jedi in Spain, which describes plural ‘Jedi’, not singular like in the English title. Due to this difference, the filmmaker, Rian Johnson, confirmed that there is only one last Jedi in the movie.
Skywalkers in The New Movie
With the death of Luke Skywalker and the unknown fate of Leia Organa, what will hapen to the Skywalker family in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is still unclear. It will be the crucial plot in the movie, as Skywalkers are main protagonists in Star Wars franchise, and it will end the Skywalker Saga. But the last movie of the saga might bring a new beginning to the family.
Directed and written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is starred by Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Carrie Fisher, Naomi Ackie, and Richard E. Grant. This Star Wars movie will be released on December 20, this year.
