Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker serves as the final installment of the Skywalker Saga, concluding what A New Hope started 40 years later. The movie's ending sees Rey returning to Tatooine, but a new concept artwork shows the character discovering Luke's old replica of a T-16 Skyhopper.


Taking to Instagram, artist Adam Brockbank shares an artwork that features C-3PO returning to Luke Skywalker's homestead along with Rey. This is where she buried Luke and Leia's lightsabers and was shown to have her own weapon instead. The movie ends with Rey taking the Skywalker name and looking at the twin suns, but it looks like there could have been more scenes that ought to channel some nostalgia. You can check it out below!

Tasked with concluding the Skywalker Saga, there's no doubt that there were more scenes than what was included in the final cut, but were left in the cutting room floor to make room for much more important sequences. This scene may have been one of those, but it is understandable as to why it was included.

While this may have been a good scene to include in the film, Rey being in Tatooine and seeing the twin sunsets might have been a good choice to end the movie, showing a full circle between the final installment and the first Star Wars movie.


Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is available to stream on Disney+.
