i would think its all hand on deck since they were the remaining fighters. who knows

I do seem to recall someone ó possibly Anthony Daniels himself ósaying C-3PO would have a larger part in IX.

Also, if this is real, those reports of Kylo gluing his helmet back together with red goo were accurate.
I didnít say it was fan art. The image of him with a weapon is what Iím reacting to. It looks ridiculous.

I like Rey's TLJ hair infinitely better. Never was a fan of the 3-bun.

Wouldn't surprise me if that poster is real as there were leaked pictures a while back on a forum I go to for collectibles/figures and I remember those costumes for Finn and Poe.

Reminds me of Explorers.

I think that poster is just early concept art that just leaked. Definitely not the final artwork.

But, it's just a poster, not the movie. So no big deal IMO. It's nothing to lose your mind or get worked up about.

So Rey just had to get a new Maglite tube for that saber crystal?

In that case, I'd like to think that Anakin did the same with the saber that got chopped in AOTC... so it'd really be the same crystal.

MakingStarWars obtained a character sheet that reveals some new names: Jannah and Zorii:



First look at old Lando:


Rey needs a new stylist. Her costumes have basically been the same, just changing from tan to grey and now white:

What's BB-8 got going on in the that poster? A hair dryer?
Obviously fake. How can Chewy and 3P0 have the bandoleer on at the same time?

That might be one of the most bizarre complaints I've ever seen.

Spoiler:










I guess that would go in the same category as all the other complaints levvied against the ST that has a direct analogous counterpart in the OT.

Mark Hamill thinks it's fake (Twitter posting), but obviously he wouldn't know more than most of us.

I think it might be a design for box art for toys. It seems similar in style to toybox art that leaks early for Solo:


That could also explain the more general "Star Wars" logo at the bottom.

i feel like this can cut both ways. If the costumes and new characters were known before the new art was released, then a diligent fan wanting to make a convincing fake would use those designs/characters.

re: Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (12/20/19, W/D: J.J. Abrams)

This poster sort of confirms my hunch that the OT characters will all have very small roles (including Luke). The one thing I will give Disney is that their marketing has been on par with each movie as there has been no deception. Luke was not in any marketing in TFA, and that jived with him being in only 30 seconds. He was a big part of the marketing and the poster for TLJ, and played a major role in that movie. They also had Luke saying things in the trailers like, "This is not going to go how you think!" and "The Jedi....need to end!" so they were definetly setting fans up for a different Luke. I think the fans going into Episode 9 expecting any OT characters playing a prominent role will be disappointed, so the new characters have to really sell this movie. There is only so much old footage of Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams is 81 years old so he will probably just fly the falcon, and it wouldn't make sense if Force Ghost Luke had this big role after his arc in TLJ.

Really? Other than being the color white, at least Leia's ANH and ESB costumes are different looks... and those last two (Bespin gown and Ewok village) aren't really similar at all.

Recycling the ANH outfit at the end of ESB made sense with the heroes being on the run. Leia just put on whatever was stashed on the Falcon (like Lando wearing Han's duds). I get Rey is poor and not galactic royalty, but (other than the vest) you could tweak the colors in photoshop and I'd have trouble spotting a difference in her costumes from one movie to the next. While not flashy, even the dudes have more distinctive looks -- so it seems odd Michael Kaplan didn't change it up for the sake of variety. But hey, at least all the female cosplayers out there will only need a bottle of bleach to update their Rey costumes for Episode IX.

The way the characters look are really the least of my concerns with this film. I think Rey has had decent looks throughout both films so far. I will say Poe looks really generic though if what heís wearing on that poster is real, but itís kind of whatever.

I guess she wasn’t joking around when she said George Lucas told her nobody wore underwear in space.

The photos make it abundantly clear that there was a great deal of diversity in Princess Leia’s wardrobe. There’s even a couple left out. Much less so for Rey.

How the characters look is of utmost importance in a Star Wars film. A cool costume can make a character (like Bobba Fett) or break a character (Rose).
