Okay, so it was not explicitly stated in the last movie? I saw it once and for the life of me cannot recall.We have an answer which can be retconned if needed because I assume making Rey's memory cloudy because she is a kid is easily explainable. I prefer the nothing angle but don't mind either way.
Nice looking shot of Rey v Kylo in the storm (perhaps the ocean behind them?). Also good to get a closer look at the Knights Of Ren, hopefully they feature here beyond just a tease or two.New pics from Vanity Fair:
That was my first thought too, but his hair is shorter and beard looks darker in the flashback:And I’m guessing that photo of Luke and R2 is from when the temple was burning down, no way would they reveal a look at what his potential role would be in this movie.
One of the major criticisms hurled at The Force Awakens was that it was essentially a rehash of A New Hope. For all its faults, The Last Jedi was happy to live or die as its own beast – and this freedom was something Abrams was keen to carry over to The Rise of Skywalker. “On VII, I felt beholden to Star Wars,” he said. “[Episode IX] felt slightly more like, you know, ‘fu** it.’ I’m going to do the thing that feels right because it does, not because it adheres to something.”
