    No matter what your thoughts on the leaked story details of Colin Trevorrow's Episode IX, it's always great to see new Star Wars concept art. At the end of last month we got our first look at Trevorrow's Duel of the Fates and now we get an even more detailed look as 28 new images have been revealed.





    Like last time these images come courtesy of the Star Wars Leaks Reddit and are based, primarily, on the first draft of the script from December 2017, before Carrie Fisher's passing required the story to be reworked.



    Going in story order, at least as much as possible, the first images showcase the shipyards of Kuat, where the Resistance heroes have gone undercover to try and sabotage the First Order's new fleet of Star Destroyers. Of course, things go wrong, but our heroes are able to steal a new Star Destroyer as they make their daring escape.

    [​IMG] Rey, Finn, and Poe fight their way to the Eclipse Star Destroyer

    [​IMG] The crew detonates the orbital ring and steal an Eclipse Star Destroyer from the Kuat docking bay



    The next image shows General Leia Organa at the Resistance's new base on Korilev;

    From here, the story was to break into three threads as Kylo Ren seeks out Tor Valum on Remnicore, Rey hunts for a seer on Bonadan with Chewie, Poe, and BB-8 whilst pursued by the Knights of Ren, and Finn, Rose, R2-D2, and C-3PO head to First Order occupied Coruscant to light a beacon for aid under the Jedi Temple.

    [​IMG] 'Chewie grabs this Knight of Ren, throws him into the air, and shoots him out of the sky like a clay pigeon'



    The final battle is split between two locations. The Battle of Coruscant, where the forces of the Resistance and the First Order clash on the ground and in the skies above the former capital of both Empire and Republic. And Mortis, where Rey and Kylo Ren finally come face to face in a duel that will determine the balance of the Force.

    [​IMG] Stormtroopers fight against Coruscant citizens

    [​IMG] Rey gazes at the temple of Mortis

    [​IMG] Rey and Kylo face off at the peak of the temple of Mortis

    [​IMG] 'Rey lays on the stone slab still injured. 'Light fills up the space around her. Particles of energy floating up. She rises with the energy. The light engulfs the frame until we reach a place beyond what we know. The Astral Plane. Yoda, Luke, and Obi Wan appear before her. Rey: 'Is this death?' Obi-Wan: 'In this place, there is no such thing as death.' Yoda reveals Rey succeeded were they failed. Luke: 'You choose to embrace the dark side and the light. To find the balance within.' They offer Rey a choice to stay in the comfort of the Astral Plane or to return to the living where she will experience both love/loss. The spirits fade. Obi-Wan: 'You are a Jedi, Rey Solana, but you will not be the last.'



    The film would have ended at a ranch on Modesta, where Finn waits with a group of Force sensitive children, as Rey arrives to train the next generation of Jedi.

    In addition to these images, the new leak also has concept art identified as coming from the second draft. You can read more about this draft, and how it differed from the first, at Making Star Wars.



    [​IMG] [2ND DRAFT] On Moraband, Wommels treat a near-death Kylo[​IMG] [2ND DRAFT] With the Knights of Ren hot on their tail, Poe pushes the Falcon into lightspeed and crashes it into the ice planet of Wavett[​IMG] [2ND DRAFT] The crew, stranded on Wavett, sit around a campfire

    [​IMG] 'Finn reads a story to the young kids and they ask if they really think Rey is gone. Finn believes she’s alive because of the force. Poe and Chewie are flying and they find a beacon on a planet. Rey is alive, on the Wavett planet, pulling the Falcon out of the icy water.'



    There's also a new image of Finn, working in a First Order labor camp on Coruscant. The image is said to be from an early draft. The December 2017 draft we know about is said to be the first and that features Rose being captured, not Finn, so it's possible this image is based on earlier story ideas that predated that first full draft or perhaps a draft between that one and the final one that Making Star Wars provided the details for.



    [​IMG] Finn is captured and imprisoned in a work camp on Coruscant (Early draft)



    And finally there's this image of Kylo receiving a new mask. His face is not injured and it's not the Mandalorian mask that is smelted to his face in the first draft, and seen in other concept art for version of the story, so this is likely to be either an early idea or something from a later draft.

    Be sure to share your thoughts on this new artwork in the comments below and in the Cantina. And remember to check out  The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker by Phil Szostak when it is released next month, featuring art from J.J. Abrams' first day on the movie right through to the end of the saga.

    I might not be the largest fan of the script, the pictures can almost make me a believer! Great art, regardless!

    Edit: So Finn waiting with the children waiting for Rey sounds a lot like he still might have been FS.

    This movie sounds better and better. Yes, the script may be bizarre, but at least it's original and exciting, while TROS is very safe.

    Even though some ideas seem to be carried over to TROS, I wish they would have used more concept arts of DOTF.

    Just look at the final shot of DOTF compared to TROS- A bright future for the Jedi, while the ending of TROS is just a nostalgic re-telling of a beloved scene.

    We got robbed. :p

    If they just turned down Kylo's evilness, then yeah I agree. I do like the concept of the force dyaid, though.

    Kylo was pretty evil in TROS too, but DOTF worked with what was set up in TLJ. => Kylo being the main villain.
    Furthermore we didn't really see Ben Solo in TROS too, so I wouldn't mind a last second redemption like in DOTF. It's bad either way.

    Kylo should have been redeemed in TLJ or in the beginning of IX.

    NOooo... redemption for Kylo Ren... :p Evil, villain Kylo Ren is what I wanted. A new Mask glued Lol... singed to his face would have been wayyyy kewl!!! A completely deranged Kylo Ren would have been sweet!

    We certainly got robbed!!!

    I saw TROS 4x I got robbed big time Lol. TROS is a fun film though but I wish we got DOTF instead.

    KK robbed us again... big time!

    Kylo would have always been redeemed. There's no way around it. Star Wars is about redemption.
    But apparently neither JJ, nor CT would have let Ben survive.

    I wouldn't blame KK. She does exactly what a producer has to do. Making the possible best product regarding the circumstances.

    Not gonna lie - seeing the Falcon flying thru the city/planetscape of Coruscant would have been epic! As would returning to the Jedi Temple. Man - storywise i'm blah about to an extent but revisiting those places really should have been part of what we got.

    Still *HATE* that when Rey talks to the Jedi of the past (Force Ghosts) Anakin is STILL nowhere to be found. Biggest letdown of the entire ST IMHO.

    Do like the idea that she uses ALL of the Force, Light and Dark and found the balance within. Could have merged a lot of CT and JJ's versions to make a truly satisfying ending to this trilogy and the saga as a whole, provided that version included Anakin.

    As the Force is essentially relating to life and absence and Kylo Ren is described sucking trees and sentient beings dry, I would have liked to see Rey adopting powers like Giorno from JJBA Golden Wind, bringing life where there was none and being able to directly commune with the essence of plants and animals. Just the idea of a flock of avians attacking tie fighters, tree roots crushing stormtroopers is all kinds of awesome and fungal blooms bursting from the chassis of vehicles is all kinds of awesome.


    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 12, 2020, Original Post Date: Feb 12, 2020 ---
    Anyone else thinking that this could have been changed further with Ben/Kylo Ren having the same relationship as Doppio/Diavolo from JJBA Golden Wind with Ben Solo being a dormant personality unaware of everything that is happening and the identity of Kylo Ren only being revealed at the last minute.

    These Concept arts definitely help make the plot more comprehensible. I still like that JJ came back and tried to wrangle in what he started but it also would have been nice to see this crazy direction it could have without the emperor in it at all.

    The art work is impressive but the story I really don't like. I mean I ain't going to lie, I ain't a Kylo Ren fan and I was not impressed with Ben Solo either. As many of you know I dislike Marvel and the Ben Solo scenes just reminded me of that. Anyway you would think I would prefer the big bad Kylo ending but I don't. Well not the way its seems to be scripted. Maybe if it was, really, really dark I may have gotten along with it. Although that is ironic because I like TROS and that was seriously light hearted. I think for me anyways its that TLJ disconnect I have. Also Mortis? Why? This just reeks more of fan entitlement as its hooked in to the Clone Wars, so is it new or different? I don't think it is. Again I don't really like cartoons so perhaps this why I have anxiety around DOTF. As I have said before art work doesn't make a script. I can't wait for the TROS art work, I bet that looks just as much impressive these images. Got to admit I would love to see Rey in black and that double edged blue lightsaber is pretty tasty but I would have loved to have seen her golden yellow in action too. I have seen some Battlefront mods, with her using the gold and it looks cool, I have also seen a DOTF Rey, not going to lie, she looked amazing. But yeah in a weird way I prefer what we got with TROS, which actually goes against my own personal tastes but after VIII that bar was very, very, low.
