Leaked STAR WARS: EPISODE IX Concept Art and Reference Photos Show Lando, Rey, Kylo Ren, Aliens and More
A collection of concept at and reference photos have seemed to leak out from the Star Wars: Episode IX production. They show off a few of the old returning characters along with some of the new ones!
The reference photos show off several alien designs, but we also see Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), and Poe (Oscar Isaac). There’s also reference photos giving us a first look at the characters Richard E. Grant and Dominic Monaghan will be playing.
If you want to preserve the Star Wars experience and not have anything spoiled for you, I suggest you don’t read ahead.
The following images were posted on Reddit, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be up before they are taken down. The images also include a breakdown of the characters that we are seeing. As you’ll see, Lando’s style hasn’t changed much.
One thing that the photos confirm is the look of Kylo Ren’s helmet. It was previously reported that the helmet will be reforged using a red crystalline bonding material, which gives the mask “a very corrupted look. A little Kylo, a little Vader, and maybe even with a hint of Maul’s facial stylings."
If you did decide to look over these, let us know what you think.
