There was some concept art that leaked out recently that was said to be for Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode IX, which was going to be titled Duel of Fates. The director confirmed that concept art was not from his film, but was from J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But, this new series of concept art that I’ve included in this post is from Trevorrow’s film and it gives us an idea of what his vision for the final chapter in the Star Wars saga would have been.
The art reveals that Rey has a double-bladed lightsaber, we get a glimpse at Kylo Ren wearing a new mask, there’s a scene that shows Ben Solo battling Darth Vader, and we get a look at a monstrous Sith teacher named Tor Valum. There’s a lot more cool stuff as well.
I’ve included some notes that came from each piece of the art thanks to CBM. I’ve gotta say, I would have loved to see these visuals brought to life on the big screen. The more I learn about Trevorrow’s Episode IX, the more I would have much rather seen his version. There’s an epic moment where Luke Skywalker’s Force Ghost appears in front of Kylo Ren and grabs his red Lightsaber blade! The audience and fans would have lost their shit over that!
Check out the concept below and tell us what you think!
