2. Rey and Kylo Ren in the heart of the plan of Palpatine
We know from the revelation of the title and the first teaser : Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) will be back. If the circumstances surrounding the comeback of the great villain of the saga are still unclear, a leak from the site Making Star Wars explained that the connection of Kylo Ren and Rey would be tied to his plan. According to this leak, the Emperor should “drain the Force that flows between them and so be young again“. One thing that does not seem far-fetched : in the new trailer, we can hear Palpatine say “Your reconciliation is your loss“. This sentence would therefore be for Rey and Kylo Ren. Certain shots of the trailer also prove that Kylo Ren will be present at the same place as Rey in the scene where she confronts Palpatine.
