There has been a lot of talk about the final scene in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Director J.J. Abrams can't stop teasing about the ending, and neither can Daisy Ridley or the rest of the cast and crew. But, is it possible that the Star Wars Episode 9 final scene has just been leaked? If this is the case, we might finally get a glimpse at what Disney has planned for the franchise's future.
WARNING: The following article contains possible spoilers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Do not continue unless you're ready for spoilers.
People have been talking about the final sequence in Star Wars Episode 9 and how it is set to be mind-blowing for fans. The hype was started by filmmaker Kevin Smith, who happened to be on the set when the scene was being shot. Although the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot director didn't get to see what happened in the sequence, he relayed how the crew members kept telling him how it was "mind-blowing." It had fans expecting a major climax in The Rise of Skywalker.
So, what will happen in the final scene of Star Wars Episode 9? A new leak reveals some interesting details about how The Rise of Skywalker will end.
After the climactic battle, Rey finds herself back in the planet where it all started. She is in Tatooine where she comes across the remains of what used to be the Lars family's moisture farm. As she looks around, a local woman passes by and tells Rey that she is the first person she had seen in that area in a long while. After this, the woman asks Rey who she is.
"Rey. Rey Skywalker," Rey is said to have answered. It is unclear what happens after the revelation, but it is assumed that the scene is immediately cut.
It's an interesting way to end Star Wars Episode 9. After all, Rey's true identity has been a huge mystery for several years now. Could this confirm that Rey was connected to the Skywalkers all this time? Or did she merely adopt the name in honor of Luke Skywalker?
Perhaps the truth will be revealed sometime before the final scene. However, the conclusion strongly suggests that the next Star Wars trilogy will continue to focus on Rey. There have been speculations that Daisy Ridley will keep playing the character in more Star Wars movies in the future. However, this has yet to be confirmed. So, it is best to take it with a grain of salt.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will hit theaters on December 20.
