‘Star Wars’: this is ‘Duel of the Fates’, the script discarded by Colin Trevorrow for Episode IX

When it seemed that since we went forgetting the apparent chagrin widespread ‘The ascent of Skywalker’ J. J. Abrams had given half the world and a considerable part of the fandom, we found a new excuse with which to unleash our dark side and throw some more fuel to the fire.

The pretext is found in Redditwhere have leaked details of ‘Duel of the Fates’, the title of the script out of the question that Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow had been written when the latter was still bound to the seat of director of the ‘Episode IX’ ‘Star Wars’.

that Said, we are going to review the key points of a booklet with date of 16 December 2016 —about two weeks before the death of Carrie Fisher—, whose authenticity is confirmed by the middle /Film —pretty reliable for this kind of things.

The status quo in ‘Duel of the Fates’ introduces us to a First Order dunk to cut the communications between planets to prevent the battle between Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren to feed the rebellion. With this premise, these are the bases of the first act of the film:

“The iron fist of the First Order has been extended to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. Only a handful of planets scattered remain free. Acts of treason are punished with death.”

“Determined to stifle growing unrest, the Supreme Leader Kylo Ren has silenced all communications between systems neighbors.”

“Led by the General Leia Organa, the Resistance has planned a secret mission to prevent their annihilation, and forge a path to freedom.”

Turning away from the vision of J. J. Abrams

as of this moment, ‘Duel of the Fates’ moves in the direction to close the arc that began in ‘The awakening of the force’ without involving Palpatine in the main plot. is What if you see that the Emperor is a hologram that is Kylo Ren in the Temple of Vader. So it is in the filtering:

“In the Temple of Vader, Kylo is a Holocron Sith, which reveals a hologram of Palpatine. The recording is for Vader. Palpatine has a plan B for Vader if Luke kills him. Vader to bring Luke to the System Remincore to see TOR VALUM, Master of the Sith and master of Palpatine.”

as in ‘The ascent of Skywalker’, ‘Duel of the Fates’ Kylo Ren continues as the main antagonist. However, in the version of Trevorrow, the ghost of Luke —which is also communicated with the King on various occasions to press him to resist the dark side, and the face of the villain is disfigured, and then be covered by a armor Mandaloriana.

For the rest, the narrative of the film unfolds as expected, with travel interplanetary, missions and battles everywhere. On the one hand, Rose, Finn, R2 and C3PO embark on a mission, and on the other, Rey, Poe and Chewbacca ally to fulfil another objective. Leia asks Lando to organize the smugglers to fight against the First Order, that Order begins a revelión citizen on Coruscant, and it all culminates with King fighting and defeating the Knights of Ren.


Where is the great twist of the story? The definitive revelation of ‘Duel of the Fates’ is the fact that was Kylo Ren, the one who killed the parents of King under the orders of Snoke. After the revelation, during the battle between King and Ren, the ghosts of Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda appear to try to bring Ben —without success— to the light side of the Force. Ren dies, the Resistance wins and all are happy and eat partridges.

After reading all this, and despite having enjoyed fully from ‘The ascent of Skywalker’, I do not wish to filter in the script the whole ‘Duel of the Fates’ to be able to enjoy, even if it is on paper, of this closure alternative, which, all told, it looks good, the saga of the Skywalkers.
