Ways The Rise of Skywalker Could Be Misleading Us

The footage may be edited a certain way, or digitally altered, or just presented in a context that hides the bigger picture. With that in mind, it's time to talk about all of the possibilities contained in this footage — and some of the ways in which we could be deceived by it.The trailer for The Rise of Skywalker begins with an unforgettable sequence in which Rey stands alone on a desert planet and waits as a First Order TIE fighter approaches. When it enters her path, she ignites her lightsaber, then runs until she's between its wings, and leaps. The implication here is that she's preparing to cut the ship in two with her blade aimed right for the cockpit, and the even deeper implication is that Kylo Ren is the pilot of the ship.That may indeed be the case, but look closely at that ship and it becomes clear that it's not one we've necessarily seen before. In The Last Jedi, Kylo flew a TIE Silencer with an all-black paint job, red-tinted windows and a very angular cockpit. This ship looks more like a traditional TIE Interceptor with a brighter paint job around the rounded, more typical-looking TIE cockpit design. We also never get a look at who's at the controls — we get a shot of some hands, but nothing that definitively reveals the pilot's identity. Is this an epic rematch between Rey and Ren? Or just a marketing fakeout?In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren smashes his helmet to pieces in a fit of rage after Supreme Leader Snoke, like a true disciple of the pick-up artist, negs him for wearing it. "Take that ridiculous thing off."The loss of the helmet is about Kylo's anger, yes, but also seems to be part of his growing philosophy of "letting the past die." Despite this, the Rise of Skywalker teaser trailer shows that same helmet being pieced back together by a pair of mysteriously furry hands.When we see Kylo Ren in the teaser, though, he's not wearing the helmet. He's charging into battle with his head uncovered, burying opponents with his lightsaber. Now, it's obviously possible that the helmet simply isn't reforged yet when that scene takes place, but it's also possible that Kylo isn't even the one who decides the helmet needs to be put back together. Unless his hands got super hairy under those gloves.Watch the video to see more ways they could be misleading us about The Rise Of Skywalker.#StarWars#RiseOfSkywalkerThe mystery TIE Fighter | 0:25Rebuilding Kylo Ren | 1:23What's left of the Death Star(s) | 2:14The form of The Emperor | 3:20The redemption of Ben Solo? | 4:14The reveal of Rey's parents? | 5:02A new meaning for 'Skywalker' | 5:57

    Luke was really in a deep meditation in the last Jedi. The rise of Skywalker Is him waking up. The last Jedi never happened.

    Nope I’d not be down with them changing the name of force users to Skywalkers.

    Disney have made a trilogy saga, unfortunately all 3 movies feel like stand alone movies and not part of a story to further the Star Wars story

    I don't go for the thought that Skywalker is the name of a new group of force users. Yes episode 3 and 6 were named after the titles of groups and this would have made sense. But, it is Rise of Skywalker. NOT Rise of THE SkywalkerS. Neither Sith nor Jedi require an "S" for plural, but Skywalker does. Also, without the article "THE" it only makes sense to be refering to a single entity, not a group. Just like Revenge of Sith and Return of Jedi don't make sense neither does Rise of Skywalker.

    "Forest moon of Endor", that means there is a planet and at least one moon. Two totally different places the Death Star fragment could have landed on.

    Endor is a moon & the second Death Star was probably pulled into the planet that we never got to see if it had oceans or not.

    I’m thinking Rey will find out clues to her real heritage. This will lead her to the fragments of the 2nd Death Star, where she will discover that she is a Palpatine. Perhaps through the force, perhaps Palpy (as a dark side force ghost) manipulated Snoke, who then created Rey. This can justify her Mary Sue ways because perhaps she was trained as a child, had her memory erased, and left on Jakku for future use to kill Luke and all the Jedi.
    Rise of Skywalker = Luke and Anakin guiding Kylo back to the light to destroy Rey, who will go to the dark side. Clues of this are her fighting style in force awakens mimic Palpatine, and how she went straight into the dark pit in the last Jedi.
    Tell me that wouldn’t be a cool twist? Dark Rey vs Light Kylo.

    A few people once said in a trilogy long ago, and another trilogy not too long ago....
    “ I’ve got a bad feeling about this”

    Just watch Doomcock. Rey and friends search of a transmitter to broadcast Luke's message across the Galaxy and Palpatine is a hologram recording.

    To be honest If Jedis are to be called Skywalkers after this film then that would sound pretty ridiculous.
    I mean the word "Jedi" sounds 10 times badass than "Skywalker".....

    TLJ didnt throw away the origin of Rey, what Kylo says is true, at least partly...
    But everyone seems to forget what the force actually showed her... She has no parents.

    “Skywalker” will be the new mantle to uphold.
    Time for the Jedi to end, right? What if Skywalker becomes the namesake that the new force users adopt?
    No longer Jedi and Sith, but Skywalkers and (insert bad guy moniker).
    I’m NOT a super fan of my own theory, but I honestly think this is exactly what they are doing
