Star Wars cast tease answers in new film

Space drama 'The Rise of Skywalker' arrives in theaters on Thursday (December 19).

But will the long-awaited conclusion to the Star Wars series be as epic as fans hope?

Director JJ Abrahms seems pretty confident.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DIRECTOR, JJ ABRAMS, SAYING: "I guess I would describe the movie as the gamut of emotions that you feel, I would like to think, the thrill of friends on a daring adventure, surprise because things don't go the way you expect, horror because I think things get a bit intense and scary." The Star Wars franchise began in 1977 with George Lucas' movie about farmboy-turned-hero Luke Skywalker.

But along the way - it's left some lingering questions puzzling fans of the galaxy far, far away.

The Rise of Skywalker is the ninth in the series..

It's billed as an end to the story And promises some answers.

Audiences will learn more about what drives helmeted villain Kylo Ren as well as ex-stormtrooper Finn.

Actor John Boyega explains: (SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTOR, JOHN BOYEGA: "We're going deep into his past and the mysteries of his history and what happened to him and why he decided to leave the First Order and that comes from a really cool relationship in this." The film also reveals new information about Rey's parents Daisy Ridley plays the resistance fighter.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTRESS, DAISY RIDLEY: "There's a lot of joy and the ending is emotional.

That's not to say it's totally sad.

It's definitely emotional but I think people will be uplifted when they leave the cinema." The film's creators have kept the plot under tight wraps stirring speculation about how it all ends.

Clips show Rey wielding a lightsaber glowing red, the color associated with the Dark Side, raising questions about whether she switches allegiances.

But one major mystery likely will linger after the credits roll.

Parent company Disney says it plans to hit pause on the franchise for a while, leading fans to wonder just when they'll be able to get their next Star Wars hit.
