Star Wars 9 leak: Luke 'SITH scene' with Rey – Shock Darth Vader storyline?
One thing is clear, most fans want a fitting conclusion to the story of the Skywalkers in Episode 9. JJ Abrams has a daunting task ahead, especially with numerous reports Luke will return, as well as persistent rumours and leaks about his father, both as Anakin and Darth Vader. A new leak describes a potentially game-changing scene with Luke and Rey, dangerous Sith powers and a huge clue about who will finally bring balance to the Force.
As always, treat any such leaks with caution and the awareness that storyboarded scenes and artwork do not always make it to the final on screen movie.
The leak says: “A description of Luke Skyalker and Rey on a jungle world. In front of Rey, Luke has his hand raised with a kyber crystal floating above the palm of his hand. The crystal is red like the one seen in The Last Jedi however it could be a different one. Though the one in the Last Kedi was a fragment, this is a full red kyber crystal. Rey is meditating on a rock as the red kyber crystal floats towards her and then falls into the palm of her hand. This could be Luke’s final lesson of constructing a lightsaber of her own.”
Luke, of course, only gave Rey two of the three promised lessons in The Last Jedi, but is he now introducing her to Sith Dark Side powers? This is what Snoke wanted. This is also an echo of Kylo Ren’s torment and Anakin/Vader before him.
Fans will remember the red crystal pendant from Episode 8 and it was definitely just a small shard with a Sith kyber crystal from the Old Repblic era. Luke, however, had a treasure trove of artefacts on Ahch-To and we already know Rey took the books from the Jedi temple, so she may also have salvaged more of Luke’s belongings.
Luke could also be contacting Rey from the other side and continuing to teach her and guide her to important hidden Jedi places in the galaxy where powerful texts and objects have been preserved.
As for the importance of this scene, every Jedi (and Sith) must build their own lightsaber as a rite of passage. There has been much chatter about Rey having a unique new lighsaber that possibly combines two colours.
The colour traditionally represents the user’s aptitudes and inclinations, although all Sith only have red blades. Surely Rey has not gone over to the Dark Side, so she will not be creating a purely Sith lightsaber.
This raises the possibility she may create a lightsaber that combines Lght and Dark Side crystals. There are rumours Luke’s missing green lighstaber will make a return, after the blue crystal was shattered at the end of The Last Jedi.
Imagine if somehow Vader’s red crystal survived that fall on the second Death Star. Combining the two Skywalker crystals in one weapon would be truly symbolic.
All Skywalkers feel the pull from both sides of the Force so this would also feed back into the original belief that Rey would turn out to be part of teh family at the core of the entire franchise..
Even if she is not, even if it is another red crystal, and indeed another light side crystal, the idea that Rey coud wield a weapon combining both sides of the Force would be the ultimate revelation that she is the Chosen One. It would also finally lay to rest the two sides of Anakin/Vader.
It is a tantalising idea.
