Concept artist James Clyne revealed a part of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that wasn’t added until late in production.
When J.J. Abrams signed on to write and direct Star Wars Episode IX, he didn’t have much time to wrap up the sequel trilogy after Colin Trevorrow departed the project. It’s also well-known a lot changed throughout production such as Rey’s lineage.
