Embed from Getty Images In a panel meeting JJ Abrams, director of both “Star Wars The Force Awakens” and “The Rise of Skywalker” was asked if there was going to be anything new in the December 20 release of the final film in the Skywalker story. He replied yes, but refused to go into details. Now those details have come to light.
This could be a spoiler, or not depending on “A certain point of view.” I have pulled enough away, there really is not much spoiler info. The new Force powers that fans will soon get a first-hand look at is “Force Flash Fights.” What is that you ask?
“Force Flash Fight” is only being used because as of right now there is no other title for it. So I will now attempt to shed some light on the new power. When ‘The Rise of Skywalker” opens Rey and Kylo Ren are considerably more powerful than ever.
As they engage in fighting, they are able to seemingly transport themselves around to different areas. This was seen in the opening of the final “Rise of Skywalker” trailer.
If you recall Rey is running through what looks like a forest, she jumps and lands on some metal structure. As Rey and Ren battle the backgrounds change. The two battle in different locations from all nine of the Skywalker locations.
To keep this as spoiler-free as possible, I will not detail specific locations. What is unknown at the present time is when the locations change. Bet it when the sabers strike together or a thought or what have you.
Remember the teaser trailer back in April? When Kylo Ren is in his Tie-Interceptor and Rey ignites her lightsaber as a sort of wild-west show down? Rey leaps and cripples Ren’s ship. Ren is seen walking away while the remains if his ship burns.
Right after the ship is burning, the two fight and “Flash” somewhere different. People who have seen the film promise the New Force Power works really well on screen and in the film.
Fans will be able to judge for themselves, very soon. Until then, ‘May the Force be with you.”
