The teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is primarily footage of every other Star Wars movie, so watchers beware. It pays off with the reveal that Rey is now carrying the history of the Jedi within her—and a badass lightsaber with two burning red ends to stick into bad guys.
It looks like the new movie is going to involve a lot of intense eye action between her and Kylo Ren, so more of the same. Plus fighting on a sinking spaceship? The spaceship is sinking into the water? Also, a party scene! Classic Star Wars.
Even these little hints and glimpses of what’s arriving in December is enough to get the Internet in a froth. We all need a distraction in the last few hot weeks of summer, something fun to look forward to, and above all, something to meme.
Below are some of the best jokes about the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker teaser and the rise of Dark Rey, long may she reign.

Okay, hear me out!
Dark Rey is a Pokémon. She is actually Darkrai in disguise, trying to take over another world, so that Pokémon can finally escape the spirit of truth and love and live freely.#StarWars #StarWarsIX #starwarstheriseofskywalker #DarkRey #theory pic.twitter.com/tzVN6Xb3PH
