1. Darth Rey
This one was pretty obvious, no? When I first saw Rey awesomely reveal her double-bladed lightsaber like Darth Maul, I leapt out of my seat.

Undoubtedly the coolest moment of the D23 trailer, I cannot wait to see how dark side Rey is revealed in the story. I think that she is a mirage, while some think that Rey will actually fall to the dark and others swear that the Rey we know is just a clone and that Darth Rey is another clone potentially created by Palpatine himself.
No matter what becomes of Rey, I can already hear the collective gasps in the theater when she first appears.
An awesome fight scene with Rey the Dark Lord is almost certain at this point, and we can’t wait for it. Rey’s impressive athleticism, unexplained skills in lightsaber combat combined with the versatility of a double-bladed lightsaber against another skilled opponent, whether it be normal Rey, Kylo, or a teamup of Rey and Kylo would be a lightsaber duel for the ages.
It’s certainly going to be one of the best scenes of The Rise of Skywalker and has the potential to be one of the best lightsaber fights in the entire saga.
