‘Star Wars’: A fan creates the animated version of Episode IX cancelled by Colin Trevorrow, ‘Duel of the Fates’


‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ divided a lot of fans, it is clear. And when it was leaked the original story that he had planned to Colin Trevorrow before leaving the project, the controversy over the closing of the saga, Skywalker did not do more to grow. The outcome alternative, entitled ‘Star Wars: Duel of the Fates’, convinced a lot of people thanks to sequences spectacular revealed in their concpet arts.

And although that version will never see the light, a fan has wanted to recreate it in a fun animated short, uploaded to YouTube by Mr Sunday Movies. With his voice narrating above, this small production presents scenes as interesting as the fight between Kylo Ren and Darth Vader, the King fighting with a double sword, new Force powers, cameos from Yoda and Obi-Wan…

And, above all, he laughs at the most controversial issues of the film of J. J. Abrams. Makes it clear that Palpatine is still dead, that the King is not, nor his granddaughter, nor a Skywalker, and that Kylo continued until the end that motto adopted in the episode XIII of “stop dying to the past”. In addition, the video also includes some of the concept arts leaked and a brief summary of the process of animation of the short.

What’s past is past

The new philosophy of ‘Star Wars’ from now on it seems clear. With the saga Skywalker finished after more than 40 years, the franchise is focused on new objectives and their series of real action and animation in Disney+. ‘The Mandalorian’ is taking a hit, and host spectacular, just like the last season of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’. In the future, will other productions such as ‘Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi’ and ‘Cassian Andor’.

In addition, in the comics the galactic company has decided to immerse ourselves in another era, that of the High Republic. It takes place 200 years before the birth of Anakin Skywalker, the Jedi Order is in full swing. It would not be strange that in the not too distant future this will reach the screens, whether at the cinema or streaming. ‘Star Wars’ is more alive than ever.
