Dark Rey got all the cool designs.
The one I had never seen before is this conceptual work of art recently published by the artist Adam Brockbank, who worked on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as good as The Last Jedi, Rogue one, and a whole host of other great films from the past decade. In her, Rey’s dark side gets a surprisingly familiar look.
Yes, it’s (forgive me, everyone) Reylo Ren. This version of Dark Rey, unused in the film, explicitly takes over the coat of Kylo Ren from an alleged dead or redeemed or redeemed and Ben Solo dead. Or maybe it’s a vision of a future that’s like Batman, Incorporated, with more than one Kylo Ren wreaking havoc on behalf of the Dark Side.
Anyway, it’s fantastic, a striking picture that I really would have liked to see more of. The role reversal cements the film’s themes, and it’s just a ton of fun. It’s a fanatic writer’s dream, and it would be great to see cosplays, which is really the best compliment you can give to everything Star Wars Look.

You were too good for this world, Rey Kylo Ren. But I’m glad I could see you, just once.
