Star Wars: The Force Awakens was suppossed by many to be a series re-tread of Star Wars: A New Hope. Regardless of the possibility that you feel that way, it is hard not to acknowledge that the film brought some entirely cool ideas into the universe.
For instance, the Knights of Ren, a group who has barely seconds of screen time, is something that interests Star Wars fans. To add to this, another bit of concept art on the Knights of Ren has advanced on the web.
The piece originates from the fan site Star Wars News Net and they have had the concept art amid the creation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. They never released only to keep it respectful. Be that as it may, since an official bit of concept art was recently released by Lucasfilm in The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they chose now was a decent time to show it off. Here’s how it came about;
“During the production of The Force Awakens, a couple pieces of leaked concept art came to be in our possession, but we decided not to share the images at the time out of respect for Lucasfilm. One of the two images eventually found its way into The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens book, but the other has still never seen the light of day. We contacted our artist friend Venamis, who did a sketch recreation of the other piece for us.”
So what you’re witnessing is not really the art piece. It is an outline of the piece of art highlighting the early idea of the Knights of Ren. Nevertheless, despite everything, it gives you a glimpse of how fundamentally extraordinary the group could have looked.
Just in case you require to refresh your mind, the Knights of Ren showed up quickly in Rey’s Force dream in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and were selected by Kylo Ren to wipe out Luke’s new era of Jedi that he was training. Now that’s exceptionally dark yet extremely cool as well.
Many have pondered over how much (if any at all) screen time the group will get in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Furthermore, it appears like they could be included rather prominently and not in a dream this time. In the recently released Star Wars 8 behind-the-scenes reel from D23, there is a clip of Daisy Ridley being assaulted by three individuals, most likely using lightsabers. Since they were just sticks in the video, it’s difficult to state. However, it appears to be likely and it has been hypothesized that these are a few members from the Knights of Ren.
We’ll need to wait until 15th December to check whether that remains constant in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We can dare to dream. Who knows? Possibly Lucasfilm will make that Knights of Ren film J.J. Abrams discussed? Or, presumably not. Let’s see….
