Dark King Channels The Royal Guards of Palpatine in Chilling The Rise of Skywalker Art

We have a different take on the Star Wars black ray: Skywalker’s climb. Artist Adam Brockbank shared several alternative points of view, which were taken into account in one of the greatest moments of the last Daisy Ridley saga. In this case Ray leads another figure on the dark side than the Royal Guard in the Palatinate.

At Instagram, conceptual artist Adam Brockbank inaugurated a new work of art that was created in the early stages of pre-production. He sees Ray, pale with yellow eyes like his grandfather Palpatine. But her wardrobe choice is particularly interesting here, as she is dressed in dark red robes resembling the Royal Guard, also known as the Red Guard, which we first saw when the Jedi returned. It’s also cut from the same fabric as the Praetorian Guard that Ray fought with Kaylo Wren in the last Jedi film. Brockbank provided the following signature with the photo.

In Star Wars: Skywalker Rise, directed by J.J. Abrams, gave us this moment of Black Ray at a crucial moment. Ray was ordered to remove the Sith Weifinder from the debris of the Second Death Star. Eventually the path led them to the old palpatic throne room. While lying in the rubble, Ray had a dream of power and was confronted with an evil version of himself, frozen in a black hood, with a lightsaber that didn’t look like Dark Mola. In the version we received, which was originally teased in the trailer before the release of the film, Ray looked a little more like Palpatine. That version was a big digression.

Another version of the moment showed Rei almost identical to her horrible grandfather, while another version forced her to direct Kaylo Wren instead. This reddish aura, though impressive as an independent image, seems thematically the furthest away from what this scene wanted to achieve. Logically, the filmmakers eventually decided to opt for something more like Palpatine because the Sith Lord wanted her to take her place. Still, it is interesting to take a look behind the curtain of the development process.

Star Wars: Skywalker’s ascent has been controversial, but it has been a success and has raised $1 billion at counters around the world. Although recently it turned out to be the least profitable record in the Disney sequel trilogy. Episode IX was the last Star Wars film that we will have for a while, as the studio plans to take a break at least until December 2022, when the next franchise entry is scheduled. There is no official information yet about what the film will be, but there are persistent rumors about a story that was filmed during the Old Republic.
