Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - trailer

The new cameo-filled Star Wars film, The Rise of Skywalker, has been released – and it’s dividing critics.

JJ Abrams has overseen the final chapter in the saga, which one fan described as “an apology for The Last Jedi, which was released in 2017 (even John Boyega's been digging the knife into the previous film).

Daisy Ridley heads up the cast as Rey alongside Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) and, in her final screen role, Carrie Fisher (General Leia Organa).

Alongside the returning cast members, though, are a fresh bunch of faces (well, in Keri Russell’s case, eyes) as well as some extremely recognisable ones, who show up in tiny appearances.

Below is a full list of the cameos in Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.

Scroll through the below gallery to see what made the list.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in cinemas now.
