Here Are Some New Promo Art For New Star Wars Movie

by Kaylen Summers

The promotions for The Rise of Skywalker is underway, as Triple Force Friday is all set to take place next week. However, fans got a surprising tease long before the event itself, with an official look at Rey’s repaired Lightsaber from the upcoming movie.

Though there were a lot of rumors around Rey’s lightsaber, the newly released images give fans something of a confirmed look at what to expect from the upcoming movie. Originally, Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber was broken by Rey and Kylo Ren during their battle in The Last Jedi. But now, it seems like the blue Lightsaber is returning back to action, with a new band of metal holding the two pieces together.

It was in the Triple Force Friday launch event that the Lightsaber prop was on display, with an official caption: “Re-forged Skywalker Lightsaber.” It is confirmed that The Rise of Skywalker will see “Rey [carring] the Lightsaber once belonging to Anakin and Luke Skywalker, its shattered pieces reunited, as she continues down the Jedi path.”

There were also other treats present- including promotional images from The Rise of Skywalker, a poster which originally got leaked months ago and some previously released art that gives a good look at Kylo Ren’s repaired helmet as well.

Though we need to wait a little longer to see the new Star Wars installment, you can check out the new promo images and the “Re-forged Skywalker Lightsaber” below:

With Disney setting the trend for ‘reimagining’ (remaking) classic movies, we have been seeing more studios trying to catch up with them by remaking their old classics. Though it sounds good on paper, most critics and movie-lovers think that this move could degrade the audience’s viewing culture. Adding fuel to this fire, Sony Pictures’ CEO has recently hinted the possibility for remaking The Princess Bride. Last week, Sony Pictures boss Tony Vinciquerra mentioned in an interview: “Very famous people whose names I won’t use, but they want to redo The Princess Bride… Not a month goes by when we don’t have an idea coming from some very big name wanting to do things with Norman.”

Though there was no official confirmation about the remake, the comments became viral and suddenly every devoted fan on the internet weighed in on the situation. Actor Jamie Lee Curtis, the film’s original star Cary Elwes, and even the US senator Ted Cruz were few of the many who joined in on the fight between movie-lovers and studio-owners. 

 Few of the comments against the move are listed below:

It is incredible to realize that a tiny sentence in a small paragraph of a large profile could lead to such an outcry. However, we sincerely hope that the studio understands what their audience wants rather than what the board of directors want. After all, movies are for the audiences, right?!
