Brand new images from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker have leaked that give us a first real look at Palpatine as well as an image of Rey wielding a lightsaber that confirms the leaked ending of the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film.
An image leaked to the StarWarsLeaks subreddit by user FeyWatch shows Rey wielding a yellow or golden lightsaber.
Here it is in case the image is removed from Reddit.
The image confirms the most recent Star Wars leaks from Reddit leaker Jedi Paxis.
In those leaks, Jedi Paxis detailed that his source told him that at the end of the film Rey returns to bury both Luke and Leia’s lightsabers on Tatooine. However, while on Tatooine they also reveal that Rey has her own lightsaber with a black and grey handle that ignites to form a yellow blade.
After igniting the blade, Rey is approached by a woman who asks who she is. She replies Rey. The woman then asks Rey who?
Rey then sees the ghosts of Luke and Leia in the distance. After seeing them she tells the woman, ‘Rey Skywalker.’
An image of Rey and BB-8 on Tatooine was also leaked.
Along with the leaked image of Rey, there is also a leaked image of the Sith Holocron from The Rise of Skywalker.
Here it is in case it is removed.
This is most likely the Wayfinder, which has also been referenced in the leaks from Jedi Paxis.
Jedi Paxis’ source described the Wayfinder as a pyramid-shaped object that is discovered by Kylo Ren on the planet with the red lit woods.
After uncovering the Wayfinder, he plugs it into his TIE and uncovers the path to Exogol, where the Emperor is said to be located.
Kylo Ren’s meeting with the Emperor was recently revealed by Star Wars in an exclusive film clip on Facebook.
Other leaked images were provided by user EchoJoey, whose entire account has been deleted.
Those images include both Luke and Leia’s lightsaber.
The leaks from Jedi Paxis don’t really indicate where Rey will obtain Leia’s lightsaber, but it does indicate her lightsaber will appear in the film as she attempts to bury it on Tatooine and also hands it off to Kylo Ren later on in the film.
It’s possible she obtains it on Ahch-to as the leaks indicate Rey will return to the place where the Jedi temple was destroyed and witness a vision of Leia’s last training session to become a Jedi. However, Leia decides to not become a Jedi after she has a vision of her son’s fall to the Dark Side and death.
Other images reveal the first real good look at Emperor Palpatine.
Here it is in case, it is taken down.
There is also an image of Rey fighting alongside Kylo Ren as they both wield blue lightsabers.
Here’s the image in case it is taken down from Reddit.
Jedi Paxis also discussed this leak. Rey will apparently initiate a Force bond with Kylo Ren and pass Leia’s lightsaber to him in order for him to fend off the Knights of Ren as he attempts to enter Exogol.
This image actually shouldn’t be a surprise as Disney copyright striked a YouTuber back in October after using a leaked image of Kylo Ren wielding a blue lightsaber.
Along with these images, the words of the opening crawl have also leaked.
“The dead speak! The galaxy has heard a mysterious broadcast, a threat of REVENGE in the sinister voice of the late EMPEROR PALPATINE.
GENERAL LEIA ORGANA dispatches secret agents to gather intelligence, while REY, the last hope of the Jedi, trains for battle against the diabolical FIRST ORDER.
Meanwhile, Supreme Leader KYLO REN rages in search of the phantom Emperor, determined to destroy any threat to his power….”
Along with these leaked images Reddit user rulssi also claims to have seen the film and is confirming the most recent leaks from Jedi Paxis.
What do you make of these images? Do you think they confirm Jedi Paxis’ most recent leaks? Does this bode well or ill for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?
