THE LAST JEDI Update: Rey's New Look Is Revealed!
Earlier today, StarWars.com posted this article mentioning that Force Friday II—the official sequel to the day that The Force Awakens merchandise was released in stores worldwide on September 4, 2015—will take place on September 1st of this year. To commemorate this announcement, Lucasfilm also revealed this photo of an empty box featuring Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) at the top of this package. While the outfits of Poe and Finn look similar to what they wore in Star Wars: Episode VII (for the most part), it's clearly obvious that Rey will evolve the most in The Last Jedi. She let her hair down, there are subtle changes to her outfit (RE: a black garment visible underneath her collar), her expression in this image suggesting stronger confidence and determination and...she has a slight bruise near her left eye. What could that be from?
It remains to be seen if Rey will be welding Luke Skywalker's lightsaber for most of The Last Jedi. Though I'd hope that if/when she does build her own Jedi weapon, it will have a different color to its blade. Leave the green laser sword to Luke himself. Apart from that, I can't wait for Force Friday II to arrive this summer! I'm wondering what toy will be inside this box that Lucasfilm revealed, and if I'll buy said toy. We'll see. Happy Thursday!
