Disney+ has announced that the penultimate episode of The Mandalorian's first season will have an "exclusive sneak peek" at the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film.

"An old rival extends an invitation for The Mandalorian to make peace," reads Disney+'s description of the seventh episode. The title of the episode has not been announced, however "The Sin"'s Deborah Chow is returning to direct from a script by showrunner Jon Favreau.

The streamer has moved up the episode up from the show's usual Friday spot to air on Wednesday, December 18 - ahead of Rise of Skywalker's Thursday afternoon December 19 theatrical debut.

In the show's December 27 season finale, the Mandalorian will come "face-to-face with an unexpected enemy." Someone from Rise of Skywalker turning up would be unexpected for us at least, eh?
