An artist has depicted Rey in full control of the Force in some stunning Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concept art. The Rise of Skywalker released in December 2019 as the ninth film in the Skywalker saga. The film was headed by director J.J. Abrams and starred Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), and Oscar Isaac (Poe).
The three films in the sequel trilogy - which included The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker - focused on telling the stories of new characters while bringing back well-known faces into the Star Wars universe. Most prominently, Rey emerged as the central protagonist of the sequel trilogy. Kylo Ren originally told Rey that her parents were nobody of importance, but it was revealed in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that she was actually the granddaughter of Emperor Palpatine. By the time the third movie in the sequel trilogy came around, Rey had an incredibly strong connection with the Force.
Concept art by Adam Brockbank shows Rey wielding the Force against an entire fleet of Stormtroopers. Brockbank's Instagram post includes three different images, so fans can see the masterpiece from varying angles. Rey, dressed in all black, uses the Force to push back a fleet of Stormtroopers; the first two images show her both in the process and aftermath of completing the task. The final image is an aerial view, where the minuscule figure of Kylo Ren is visible behind the fleet, with his red Lightsaber already drawn. You can check out Brockbank's work below:
Brockbank's caption is somewhat cryptic, where he writes that he wanted to demonstrate Rey's powers "on a scorched planet." Although he doesn't further expand on this, the concept art is certainly a demonstration of just a fraction of the powers Rey learned to master through the Force. Throughout the sequel trilogy, Rey learned to use Force Vision, Force telekinesis, and Force heal, among other abilities. Perhaps the biggest revelation of all was Rey's ability to use Force Lightning, which she discovers how to wield in The Rise of Skywalker and has been mostly associated with the Emperor over the years.
It's no secret that the Star Wars sequel trilogy received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. However, most will agree that Disney's visual and special effects throughout the films were nothing short of breathtaking. That being said, while some fans may have been disappointed with the revelation about Rey's family - with some hoping that she would be a Skywalker - watching Rey come into her powers was one of the most rewarding parts of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Although Disney has remained quiet about further Star Wars projects, many hope that Rey will make another appearance, along with her newfound confidence and control over the Force.
