“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” concept artist Adam Brockbank has leaked a new concept photo that shows Rey battling with a fleet of First Order stormtroopers.

  • The three new photo represents “an early concept demonstrating Rey’s power, on a scorched planet.”
  • You can see Rey using the Force to push all the trooper backwards.
  • The third photo in the series reminds me of Anakin Skywalker walking up the Jedi Temple steps in “Revenge of the Sith.”

It’s still unclear what planet Rey is using the Force on, and we probably won’t ever know. It’s also unclear if the concept art comes from the “Rise of Skywalker” script or the “Duel of the Fates” script — the version of Episode IX written by Colin Trevorrow.

More concept art leaks

In recent weeks, we’ve seen a few different art items leak from “Rise of Skywalker.” For example, new art for Rey’s yellow lightsaber found its way online in the beginning of the month, giving us more details about the weapon.

We also saw a leak of Dark Rey’s double-bladed red lightsaber, as I wrote for Deseret.com. The lightsaber will be detailed in the upcoming book “Star Wars: The Lightsaber Collection,” by author Daniel Wallace.

Some concept art in “The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens” showed us that Kylo Ren might have had a blue and red lightsaber. The new lightsaber may have changed the ending of “The Force Awakens,” as I wrote for Deseret.com.

  • “Because a lightsaber’s Kyber crystal ‘bleeds’ when wielded by a dark Jedi or Sith, the crystal (and blade) turns red,” according to ScreenRant. “If the blue blade turned red at the moment that Kylo Ren stabbed Han Solo, it could have been the perfect way to show his commitment to the dark side. The transformation of the lightsaber blade would not only be an amazing visual, but it would also advanced the story in a fascinating, new way.”
