🛑‼️POSSIBLE SPOILERS / POSSIBLE STAR WARS LEAK READ AT YOUR OWN RISK🛑‼️
HOLY GEEZ, this star wars leak/spoiler is HUGE! This is primarily huge because NOBODY, and I do mean none of the sources that usually report this stuff even knew about it! One of the subreddits I frequent posted about a couple of days ago, but it got buried under everything else, so I didn’t see it until this morning.
THERE is supposedly a trailer that features the Knights of Ren. Here’s the trailer (bear in mind it might get taken offline, especially if it’s legit), so watch this right now; otherwise, you might miss out!
My understanding of The Knights of Ren is that they started with a dark side user named “Ren”. This came from the comics, so none of this was known before the comics first revealed the character. By the looks of this character in the teaser/trailer, that isn’t him. Ren looks nothing like that in the comics. When I say “looks nothing like him”, you can easily see what you want to see in this hazy image. The lighting is so bad that you can’t make out any specifics (probably on purpose).
Here’s the comic version of Ren. Assuming that is who the person in this clip is, it could be someone else entirely! Or the voiceover could be Ren speaking and this dude in the clip is a random Knight of Ren we don’t yet know.
Disney has not announced this project. Which explains why nobody knew about it. If you use Reddit, check out the Star Wars leaks subreddit. They don’t even have this listed there as a possible project in development by Disney. So that tells me that someone kept this very quiet until now, OR it’s fan-made, and a hoax, and almost the entire Star Wars fandom fell for it 🤣
It wouldn’t be the first time a “legit” source got it wrong. I remember many supposed “leaks” that were merely fans getting excited over nothing at all and everyone else joining in.
This is what being part of a fandom is all about! I dunno who or what this particular trailer is, nor do I know anything else, so I am in the same boat right now!
My opinion on the clip – it looks pretty legit to me. Also, Sony is really good at shutting down leaks. But Disney doesn’t seem to be as ruthless as that. Even if this was a leak, there’s still a good chance Disney is allowing the leak on purpose to gather momentum from the fandom. We know that Solo: A Star Wars Story flopped. And there have always been opinions within the fandom that Disney releases too many things too soon and saturates the market. Maybe this came from inside Disney/Lucasfilm for a reason.
Also, I did a quick check on the music in the clip, too – it was unrecognised by Shazam. But again, that doesn’t mean anything, it could be some random audio file from YouTube as there are thousands – all free.
So much to think about, and it’s SO EXCITING! What do you think, Star Wars friends? Let me know in the comments as I am dying to chat away about this 😁😆
