New Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concept art sees Rey exploring more of the Lars homestead and a major callback to A New Hope.

The Rise of Skywalker and the Sequel Trilogy as a whole features many references to the Original Trilogy, which has a been a major criticism for many. At the end of The Rise of Skywalker, we see Rey enter the Lars homestead, where she buries the lightsabers of Anakin, Luke, and Leia. The Lars homestead is noticeably different from the last time we saw it chronologically in A New Hope and new concept art reveals that we could’ve seen Rey explore more of it.

Adam Brockbank shared some new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concept art on Instagram, featuring Rey in Luke’s room with his T-16 Skyhopper toy that is seen in A New Hope. This moment looks like it would’ve been similar to when Finn finds the Marksman-H combat remote on the Millennium Falcon in The Force Awakens. The concept art also features C-3PO on Tatooine with Rey at the end of the film. You can check out the concept art below.
