When EA announced that the costumes from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” would be included with the purchase of “Star Wars: Battlefront II,” fans widely assumed they’d have to wait until November for an in-depth look at what the characters will wear. While that may hold true for some characters, we now have a peek at redesigned costumes worn in the sequel by Rey and Kylo Ren.
The reveal arrives courtesy of a preorder bonus image for “Battlefront II” posted by GameStop Ireland. Labeled as “production stills,” they depict Daisy Ridley’s Rey in what looks to be quintessential Jedi garb reminiscent of what Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn wore in the “Star Wars” prequels.
Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren doesn’t appear to have undergone too drastic of a makeover. However, in addition to the removal of the hood from his cloak, it’s interesting to note that as we saw in the the first trailer, Kylo isn’t wearing the helmet he sported for much of “The Force Awakens.” Considering we saw the helmet lying in ruins, it may be safe to assume Kylo isn’t in any rush to find a replacement in “The Last Jedi.”
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” features returning cast members Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, joined by franchise newcomers Kelly Marie Tran as Rose, and Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern in undisclosed roles. “The Last Jedi” opens on December 15.
