    ILM concept artist James Clyne has posted a previously unseen piece of concept art from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The scene comes from a montage in the final few minutes of the film, showing the downed Final Order ships crashing on recognized planets from the original and sequel trilogy, in this case, Bespin, seen in The Empire Strikes Back. 

    Clyne's caption is what makes the photo all the more interesting:

    Obviously, Clyne's tone is a light, happy one, but talk of late additions in production and being under the gun hint at known issues behind the scenes for the film. Between a director, and script, change mixed with studio pressure to meet the announced December 2019 release date, rumors about The Rise of Skywalker's rushed production have been rampant since before the film was even released, this post continues that ongoing conversation about what happened behind the scenes of the film. Whatever the story, this is going to be something long talked about by fans as more and more news comes to light of the production.

    To toss some water on the flames and put some historical perspective on this, the universally deemed gold standard of Star Wars movies, The Empire Strikes Back, had shots added to the end of the film shortly after it debuted in theaters in May of 1980.
