New Star Wars Episode 9 Images Leak Online, Real Or Fake? - Possible Spoilers

Jay Cochran - March 27, 2019
UPDATE: Mark Hamill himself via Twitter has confirmed this to be nothing more than a fan made creation.





New images have leaked online today giving us our possible first looks at the mysterious and as-of-yet untitled Star Wars: Episode 9 which will be directed by J.J Abrams. The first thing we got was a look at internal promotional art that original showed up on Reddit.




This internal artwork gives us a look at several strange things like C-3PO holding Chewbacca's Bowcaster and wearing his bandolier, the Knights Of Ren making an appearance, BB-8 getting a sidekick rumored to be named D.O. and red Stormtroopers. Oh then there is the weird looking fish alien, Naomi Ackie as Jannah (long haired character), Keri Russellís Zorri (helmeted character) and an orange X-Wing. Oh and Rey has a new lightsaber or repaired Luke's old one.

Things missing from this artwork are any Original Trilogy characters, specifically Lando. Han and Luke died in the previous 2 movies and we assume Leia will have passed on by the time this movie begins.

Those wanting Lando however, never fear because shortly after the poster hit the net, Makingstarwars.net posted some additional character art. One of the characters featured there was Lando wearing a similar outfit to that young Lando wore in last years Solo movie.




Now the question remains, is any of this real, or is it fan made stuff that once again has fooled a info hungry fandom??? We have no idea. It does seem that some sites that posted the images have been asked to remove them by Disney such as Comicbook.com. If these images were fake the studio likely wouldn't bother but you never know. Only time will really tell how legit this stuff is. We will likely start getting our first official reveals in a couple weeks at Star Wars Celebration.

I don't know. "Passionate fan" are not words I would use to describe whoever gets hired to make some of those posters we've been seeing for blockbuster movies over the past decade or so, if this is one of them. And there's a comment in that twitter thread where Hamill posted a cry-laughing emoji at 3P0 with the bowcaster, and I kinda doubt he'd do that if it was official, even if it were leaked.

Touche!

My bet is that its a mock-up of a retail poster to solicit to stores

Interesting. Not sure if the troopers at the bottom are actually red. It appears to me that they look red due to Kylo's lightsaber. Can't tell for sure. I'm rather curious about the knights of Ren, wonder if they'll be doing something.

could be real but disney could change poster for U.S. and send this poster overseas.

A whole bunch of characters jammed together in various action poses, going from larger to smaller depending on importance, couple of ships in the background. This is literally every franchise movie poster Disney's ever done (see also every Avengers movie poster). Huge yawn.

Between The Last Jedi throwing out pretty much everything set up in The Force Awakens and seeing things like Kylo in his helmet again and no Rose (which I'm not saying is a BAD thing), I wonder how much continuity any of these movies will have with each other.

If all that is legit, I don't like that JJ's got Lando wearing what is essentially his outfit from Solo, because I refuse to believe that he would wear the same thing twice. There's other things I don't like, but screw it.

It looks like the kind of poster you'd see in the toy isle at Target. I'd say it's real. It even confirms the rumor that Kylo's mask is the same one he destroyed in The Last Jedi.
