Those space horses in "Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker" have a name - Orbaks

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (also known as Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker) is an upcoming American epic space-opera film produced, co-written, and directed by J. J. Abrams. It will be the third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following The Force Awakens (2015) and The Last Jedi (2017), and the final episode of the nine-part "Skywalker saga". It is being produced by Lucasfilm and Abrams's production company Bad Robot Productions, and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film's ensemble cast includes Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong'o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams.

The Rise of Skywalker is scheduled to have its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 16, 2019, and will be released theatrically on December 20 in the United States.

In the final trailer for this movie, members of the Resistance, led by Finn (John Boyega) and Jannah (Naomi Ackie) ride atop a herd of orbaks in one of the most stunning shots in the trailer. Orbaks are creatures native to the desert planet Pasaana and look and pretty much act like horses, they also have long, wavy fur, long boned faces, and mammoth-like tusks.

Actress Naomi Ackie told Total Film Magazine (via GamesRadar): "I was training for seven months, three times a week, at an amazing horse ranch called The Devil's Horsemen. By the end of it, I could canter without any hands. I could play catch with balls while on a horse… It's the best part of the job – you get paid to learn!"

All we know so far is that the creatures were first revealed in Vanity Fair's big photo spread for The Rise of Skywalker earlier this year. Little else is known about the majestic orbak, including how they were made behind the scenes.

Also, you might want to stop calling them "space horses". They’re not actually riding in space, because that would be hard and kind of terrible. The shot in the trailer where they appear seems to take place on the ice planet Kijimi, where much of the climax The Rise of Skywalker might set.
