The Sandy Planet in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Teaser Isn’t Tatooine, It’s Jedha

One of the most recycled concepts for planets in Star Wars is sandy planets. We have been taken to Tatooine through the prequel and original trilogy more than once, Jakku was introduced in The Force Awakens, and Jedha, yet another sandy planet, made its debut in Rogue One. Now The Rise of Skywalker seems to be taking us to another sandy location but it doesn’t seem like a new planet. It seems very familiar, actually.

A lot of theorists believe it’s Tatooine but I can clearly identify it as Jedha. I mean, it’s so obvious.

It was delighting to see her again after her being gone for so many years and even though she is a permanently dead character her wisdom will always be felt in the MCU.

The Chosen One: Chapter Sixteen

Ben’s Fear

Ben Solo was in Snoke’s throne room, bowing before the gnarled Supreme Leader with his head bowed.

“You have done well, my apprentice,” Snoke spoke, his booming voice rolling over Ben like a cloak of shadow.

Ben thanked Snoke but his mind was questioning what he was thanking Snoke for. Until he heard the doors to the throne room open behind him and the several pairs of heavy footsteps traipsing in. He stood, turning to see who had entered the premises, and found none other than his Knights of Ren holding Rey between them. They threw her bloodied and battered body to the floor. Ben’s eyes widened.

Rey was still alive, but barely.

“Now, heir of Lord Vader, end her miserable life. Only then will you truly be a master of the Dark Side.”

Ben’s lightsaber ignited and he stepped forward, nearing Rey. She looked up at him, her face swollen and bruised.

“Ben?” she uttered weakly.

His arm rose and fell downward.
