Colin Trevorrow 'Star Wars' Script Leaks

Colin Trevorrow 'Star Wars' Script Leaks”

Both The A.V. Club and now The Playlist have corroborated the leak with their own sources, and while there are discrepancies between certain write ups, all signs point towards this script as being legit. You're new. Whatever happens, remember the force choose you Rey. Today's box office estimates confirm that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's current domestic box office sits at $481.3 million, while its global total is $519.7 million.

Rey grapples with her lack of identity throughout the draft, feeling unequal to the task of being a Jedi because she is, as she says, "no one". Kylo Ren reveals he killed Rey's parents at the behest of Snoke. "Your story isn't written by anyone else".

On the resistance's side, Rey is wondering if she should still be a Jedi and if this line of monk warriors should even continue. None of the six stories are meant to be an entirely truthful account of Luke's life and adventures, but each offers insight into the legend of Luke Skywalker and how the story of a former moisture farmer-turned-Rebel hero and Jedi Knight has grown and evolved into myth.

- Ren's face being damaged and somehow repaired with smelted Mandalorian armor. While there are some similarities between the Trevorrow-Connolly script and The Rise of Skywalker, it would have been a very different movie, and although Palpatine did appear in the form of a holocron recorded for Darth Vader, he was not resurrected, nor did he serve as the main villain.

Kylo Ren is revealed as the killer of Rey's parents. Kylo Ren finds a message from the dead Emperor to Vader.

Well, now thanks to leaks of his original script, we know what Trevorrow's film might have been. Like Luke trained with Yoda, Kylo trains with Tor Valum and goes into a cave to confront his light self-the part of him that felt love, just like Darth Vader did. Leia teams up with Lando to arrange help from smugglers in overturning the First Order's rule, and the final battle occurs on Coruscant, off the back of civil unrest sparked by Finn and the droids. However, Colin Trevorrow eventually left the project due to creative differences and J. J. Abram subsequently rework Star Wars: Episode IX after assuming directorial duties.

Say what you will about Trevorrow as a filmmaker, but he was at least willing to carry over important story beats from The Last Jedi, instead of totally retconning them, a la The Rise of Skywalker.

According to the leaked script, it sounds like Duel of the Fates would have taken place in a Star Wars galaxy where the largely triumphant First Order had gained nearly total control, ruling from the former Imperial capital of Coruscant.

There's no telling how the movie would have turned out by the time it actually made its way to theaters, but it certainly sounds like a much more cohesive and coherent story that actually follows up on the plot threads introduced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, rather than ignoring or retconning everything Rian Johnson had set up. That portion of the plot would have largely involved Finn, Leia, the droids and Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico, who would apparently have been given a far meatier role here than what she was reduced to in Rise of Skywalker.

- Chewbacca piloting an X-Wing.

I think a flawless movie would have fused some of these ideas, and I really wish that instead of throwing this script out completely, Terrio and Abrams had built on it and incorporated their better ideas.
