After the release of the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer, it is inevitable for fans to check the video frame by frame in order to check if there are some subtle hints and clues placed within the trailer. This also applies to YouTubers who make reaction, breakdown, theory, and leak videos. And apparently, one of these YouTubers had some issues.

This article contains potential spoilers.

Disney reportedly made a copyright claim in World of Geekdom's video which allegedly contains leaked photos from The Rise of Skywalker. And since the video is down, people won't be able to see the said leaks.

Bounding Into Comics provided links for the leaked photos in case they were taken down. Allegedly, there were two photos shown. One is where Rey is looking at Emperor Palpatine who is shown sitting on his redesigned throne while shooting Force Lighting into the air. The second one shows Rey and Kylo Ren who are both wielding the iconic blue lightsaber.

The YouTuber then posted a screenshot of the email he got which shows Disney making a copyright claim for his video titled, MAJOR STAR WARS THE RISE OF SKYWALKER LEAKED IMAGES!

Along with the photo, World of Geekdom writes that if Disney is claiming for a copyright, it only means that the photos were real. He understands that companies do get mad for revealing some leaks but he claims that it's "ridiculous."

He went on to address the issue in a new video, where he mentioned that the leaked photos only "popped up" on Reddit. And that he just made a video to discuss what the said images pertain to. He thinks that the photos are now "100% real" because of the said copyright strike.

Catch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in theaters on December 20, 2019.
