New packaging for future Star Wars products gives us a good look at the repaired mask Kylo Ren uses in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The packaging, which can be seen below, will be used to house The Rise of Skywalker products starting October 4, 2019 – which is being referred to as Triple Force Friday. This will be a celebration that will involve product sets for The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Package reveals for those product lines will come at a later date. Those at Star Wars Celebration Chicago will get a chance to take photos in a life-size replica of this packaging.
While details on the helmet are scarce, it’s clear from today’s teaser that someone has decided to repair the damage Kylo did to his helmet in The Last Jedi, where he furiously smashed it against the inside of an elevator after being accosted by Supreme Leader Snoke. This act was meant to show Kylo’s refusal to hide behind a mask, and while it may be repaired, the teaser did not actually show him wearing the mask. That doesn’t appear the case in this packaging.
Today, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson commented on the new teaser, revealing how much he loved it. He’s also gone on record stating that he’s fine if The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams retcons Rey’s parentage.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will be released in theaters on December 20, 2019, and Abrams discussed a bit about how they “built scenes around” Carrie Fisher’s unused footage for the film and that this newest entry in the Skywalker Saga does not pick up immediately after The Last Jedi.
