If This Is Rey's Outfit in The Last Jedi, She's Looking Pretty Sharp

An Irish advertisement for the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II video game seems like it’s giving audiences the first full look at Rey’s new outfit in The Last Jedi... that is, if you squint pretty hard.

GameStop Ireland’s sales page for Battlefront II features a pre-order bonus called The Last Jedi Heroes, where players can get exclusive looks and ability updates for the upcoming Star Wars film if they buy the game early. While other GameStop sites feature information about the pre-order bonus, Ireland’s is the only one we know about that actually shows Kylo Ren and Rey sporting new outfits that match some earlier promotional images. It’s important to note that these are not in-game skins, but movie production stills... suggesting this what these characters actually looks like later on in the film. (Representatives for EA weren’t able to provide a better look.)

Kylo Ren looks to have abandoned his outer robe and hood, instead sporting a cape that gives him heavy Jon Snow vibes. And I am simply loving Rey’s new Jedi outfit. It really combines Obi-Wan’s color scheme with Rey’s signature scavenger outfit. Some have pointed out a few subtle changes between this image and others we’ve seen, namely how the belt looks a little different in this rendering, but that could’ve been an artistic choice.

It’s also important to note that in Battlefront II, Rey’s special ability is that she can “control the minds of enemies.” This isn’t anything new, as she sported this ability in The Force Awakens, but it certainly suggests she’ll develop and expand this skill in the upcoming film. Battlefront II comes out November 17, and The Last Jedi debuts December 17.

That lightsaber is perilously close to her arm.

Kylo: What time is it?
Rey: *tilts wrist to check watch and cuts off her arm*

I guess she might not be making her own weapon after all unless its kept hidden from marketing, which is very likely of course as a spoiler. I kinda wanted to see her make something of her own. It just seems they are sticking with that lightsaber.
