A new fan poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker depicts an alternate ending to the film that the fan thinks should have really been used. 

After Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012, fans were overjoyed to learn that Star Wars: Episode VII will be produced, but the film studio has encountered more than a few challenges in attempting to extend the series through theatrical releases. 

Although The Force Awakens was met with generally favorable reviews, the film is frequently referred to be a reimagining of A New Hope. 

After that point, things went from bad to worse, with The Last Jedi being the most polarising Star Wars picture to date and The Rise of Skywalker garnering mediocre reviews at best. Things only got worse from there. 


After what seemed to be his death at the conclusion of Return of the Jedi at the hands of Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine's appearance in The Rise of Skywalker was one of the most contentious aspects of the novel. 

Many people were upset that Snoke was eliminated from the story in The Last Jedi without them getting to know more about his character, and that the major antagonist in The Rise of Skywalker was a clone of Palpatine who had the consciousness of the original Sith Lord. 

The conclusion of the sequel trilogy is sometimes criticized for being unsatisfying, despite the fact that the battle between Rey and Palpatine was a magnificent visual spectacle. 


A new fan poster imagines that the Force ghosts of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, and Mace Windu truly emerge in the third and final act of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rey heard the voices of numerous departed Jedi, including Yoda and Mace Windu, among several others. 

Along with the poster, the user Italian creative also suggests an alternate ending in which Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Qui-Gon Jinn all have a role in helping to destroy Palpatine once and for all. 

Below is the artist's original poster, as well as their concept for the story: 

If figures like Qui-Gon Jinn, Anakin, and the others seen in the artwork above had returned to assist Rey, it is plausible that it might have been lambasted for being nothing more than fan service. 

Since a lot of people think that Palpatine was brought back as the main villain to make up for what Rian Johnson accomplished in The Last Jedi, it's feasible that injecting the conclusion with even more fan service wouldn't have been received very well by audiences. 

In addition, as Force ghosts are often unable to have an effect on the material world, with the exception of a brief sequence including Yoda in The Last Jedi, it is uncertain how much assistance Force ghosts would have been able to offer Rey had they been present. 

It would have made sense for them to make an appearance to Rey before she battles one of the most powerful figures in the Star Wars galaxy, even if they wouldn't have been able to assist combat Palpatine. 

It was unquestionably a wise financial decision to merely feature these performers' voices instead of paying them to physically film scenes for on-screen appearances because doing so saved a significant amount of money. 

Having said that, it would have been quite the show to have so many beloved characters return as Force ghosts in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, even if their appearances weren't absolutely necessary to the plot of the movie as a whole.
