You know how the old saying goes: if you hear the voice of a Jedi you haven’t seen in a few years or more calling out to you through the Force, you can safely assume that said Jedi is quite dead and using space magic to make the most expensive sort of collect call from the hereafter. Or, alternatively, the Jedi’s just messing with you. Playing a kind of mind trick, if you will. Spoilers ahoy!
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Make of it what you will.
Was thinking of all of you this fine morning, Happy Holidays!
