Colin Trevorrow Confirms Leaked Star Wars Episode IX Concept Art Is Real And It’s Better Than What We Got…

Some concept art was recently leaked for the now released “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” film. The last in the series, many fans said the film was good but it wasn’t the best ending for a series that has defined 3 generations worth of fans. But now that this concept art, by Colin Trevorrow, has been released, it is starting to make fans wonder… “Why didn’t we get this film instead?”

The concept art tells an intricate story about Rey and her challenge of becoming a Jedi, as well as Kylo Ren and his rise to power within the First Order. It also ties up loose ended characters from Last Jedi who were just thrown to the side in Rise of Skywalker, such as Hux and Rose. The concept art also shows us a much more understandable and reasonable ending, with a battle between the First Order and the Resistance/Civilians of the planet Coruscant, instead of what we got in the film which was a bunch of ships coming out of nowhere.

As you can see, this art granted a powerful story full of emotional moments that we sadly didn’t get. It also showed a consistent plan throughout the new trilogy rather than what seemed to be an outline that was made up as the movies were released. It would’ve also included character building and arcs for beloved characters that didn’t get any, like Finn, as well as a beautiful homage to original films instead of just annoying references or blatant rip-offs of previously done stories. The relationship between C3PO and R2D2 would’ve been played out more showing their friendship a bit more, rather than the new cast just constantly disrespecting one of the only characters to be in all 9 films.

But tell us what you think, do you think this film would’ve been better than the series we got? Or do you think what we have now is perfect? Let us know by leaving a comment down below or by messaging us on our social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
