Trevorrow's Episode IX Script Leaks, Revealing Surprising Plot

  • Carrie Fisher as General Leia in The Rise of Skywalker

We're about a month out from the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and the dust is finally settling. Needless to say, Ren doesn't survive his encounter with Rey.

The Force Ghost of Luke speaks to both Rey and Kylo Ren. You're new. Whatever happens, remember the force choose you Rey.

Rey's parents aren't entirely absent from Trevorrow's leaked script, though.

Continuing with the split story structure of The Last Jedi, the film opens with Rose, Finn, C-3PO, and R2-D2 spearheading an assault against the now promoted Chancellor Hux on Coruscant to activate an old Jedi beacon that would re-establish galactic communications for the Resistance.

Meanwhile, Rey, Poe and Chewbacca would be on their own mission, with Rey simultaneously receiving Jedi tutelage at various points from Leia and the ghost of Luke, although this portion of the story doesn't seem to be as clear.

Trevorrow and Connolly clearly saw the character of Kylo Ren very differently than Abrams and Terrio did. The Holocron ultimately burns Ren's face, which is healed by a fusion of his skin with Mandalorian armor - the mask essentially made permanent in flesh. "You allowed love to cloud your judgement", he tells Vader's helmet, before destroying it for good. This time around, the plot instead focuses on a galaxy taken over by the First Order, which has cut off interplanetary communication to prevent rebellion, as well as Kylo Ren's continued fall to the dark side.

- A whole bunch of other stuff, including quite a lot of Force ghost Luke Skywalker.

Charles Leclerc: I won't crash with Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel again
Charles Leclerc admits his Ferrari Formula 1 team-mate Sebastian Vettel's race pace is "stronger" than his and that he must focus on improving it in 2020.

Most of the interest seems to come from the journey of Kylo Ren, however.

Emperor Palpatine does actually figure into the events of Duel of the Fates, though nowhere near as significantly as in The Rise of Skywalker. With Snoke out of the way and Palpatine still dead, Kylo Ren was the big bad of the story. That will be below Star Wars: The Last Jedi's total, which was around $1.33 billion worldwide. Just the other day, YouTube channel The Burnettwork broke down what host Robert Meyer Burnett claimed was Colin Trevorrow's original script for Episode IX, which was then called Duel of the Fates. But you know, the effort is appreciated.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker might still be showing in theaters.

Force-sensitive youngsters, like the broom-wielding orphan the duo met on Canto Bight, would have served a sizable role as part of the Resistance in The Rise of Skywalker, led duly by Rose and Finn.

Before J.J. Abrams signed on the helm the final chapter of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was set to write and helm the conclusion of the Skywalker. Coruscant is occupied by the First Order, and the Jedi Temple there becomes a major plot-point in the script. As in The Rise of Skywalker, Kylo Ren visits Mustafar, where Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi had their final battle in Revenge of the Sith. Apparently this wasn't the case in Trevorrow's draft. In Duel of the Fates, Rey being a nobody was thematically important to her entire arc.

- Rey hacked her staff into a lightsaber from the start of the film. Duel of the Fates doubled down on his villainy. At least we'll always have Babu Frick. Chewie flies an X-Wing.

I think a ideal movie would have fused some of these ideas, and I really wish that instead of throwing this script out completely, Terrio and Abrams had built on it and incorporated their better ideas.
