Unbelievably, it’s almost a year already since the arrival of the final episode of the Skywalker saga The Rise of Skywalker, but the conversation regarding the dyad between Rey and Ben Skywalker hasn’t abated. That connection is highlighted here in this unused poster by artist Adam Brockbank, which he posed on his Instagram account this week.

Introduced in The Rise of Skywalker, the concept was used to explain the strong connection between Kylo Ren and Rey which had become apparent in The Last Jedi. The Force Awakens had some indication that the pair are intricately linked together, but it wasn’t until its 2017 sequel that it was fully explored. For a while, it was unknown why and how this was happening—until Emperor Palpatine clarified the matter. As it turns out, Ben Solo and Rey Palpatine make up a Force dyad. An extremely rare occurrence, a Force dyad happens when two Force-sensitive beings are strongly linked to each other allowing them to communicate in various ways despite being far apart.

A poster for The Rise of Skywalker was meant to highlight this idea, but it was scrapped. Shared on Instagram by artist Adam Brockbank, the one-sheet features Rey and Kylo Ren almost morphing together.
