Fortnite and Star Wars recently teamed up for a special event to celebrate the upcoming release of the new movie.

Last week, we revealed how a Stormtrooper skin and a Star Destroyer had been added to the game.

Players can also now access lightsabers for the first time ever.

But the latest news is the addition of an unseen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker clip.

In the footage, we see Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron in enemy territory, blasting Stormtroopers in classic Star Wars style.

But we also get to see Rey performing a Jedi mind trick on some First Order soldiers.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will air on December 19 in the UK and December 20 in the USA.

It’s set one year after the events of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, with the remnants of the Resistance facing off against the First Order again.

The movie is also set to bring the Skywalker saga which stretches back to Star Wars: Episode I to an end.
