In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker we discovered that Emperor Palpatine, in his clone kind, was hiding on Exegol and constructing his Sith military for the Ultimate Order. Nicely, it seems that an earlier draft of the script instructed a narrative the place the Sith ord was hiding out within the ruins of a Jedi temple on Coruscant.
This new bit of knowledge got here from the guide The Artwork of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The guide reveals the next:
“As a substitute of discovering his strategy to Exegol, within the early November 2017 model of The Rise of Skywalker story, Kylo Ren as an alternative takes his shuttle to a desolate, ash-covered Coruscant, the as soon as bustling metropolis streets now overrun by big wolves. Contained in the deserted Jedi Temple, Kylo takes a central elevator right down to the temple’s deepest degree.”
There, Kylo Ren explored the desolate planet and located Palpatine, who nonetheless resembled what we noticed within the last movie. It makes me surprise what occurred to Coruscant between the occasions of Return of the Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker that might have made it fall into such damage.
Whereas it might need been enjoyable to revisit Coruscant, ultimately these little particulars wouldn’t have made the story any higher. In the long run, for their very own causes, the inventive group determined to take the story to an all-new planet.
