STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER Concept Art Features a Crazy Lightsaber Fight Between Rey and Kylo Ren
The cover art for a new Star Wars book called The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been released, and it shows a crazy image of a cool lightsaber battle between Kylo Ren and Rey.
What makes this image so interesting is the fact that the two characters are in two different settings that mirror each other and their lightsabers are clashing.
This might actually be our first look at a new way of Force Fighting that we’ve previously reported on. Before I dive into the deals of that, I’m going to throw up a spoiler warning to be safe.
The new way of Force Fighting that was previously rumored has been called “Force Flash Fighting.” It is explained that Rey and Kylo have become more powerful over time and when they meet again and fight, “the environment changes behind the leads as they battle it out with their lightsabers.” It’s explained that the backgrounds change between places we have seen “throughout Star Wars’ vast locations from the nine part Skywalker saga.”
This official concept art shows that as they are Force Flash Fighting, they will also be battling from completely different locations with each other, which is sure to make these fight scenes unlike anything we’ve ever seen before in a Star Wars film.
I’m really excited to see how this is actually going to look in the movie. If J.J. Abrams and his team can effectively pull this off, it’s going to look awesome!
The movie hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.
