Colin Trevorrow’s leaked script of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker had a very different villain to the one we got and now we can see exactly what this villain looked like.

If you have been keeping close tabs on Star Wars news this week then no doubt you have heard about Colin Trevorrow’s script for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. There was plenty of differences between Trevorrow’s script and what we got in theaters. One of which being the ultimate villain.

Emperor Palpatine’s return was something that took fans completely off guard, however, if Trevorrow’s script had been used then the main villain would not have been Palpatine, but rather a creature called Tor Vallum, Sith master.

All we’ve had to go on so far about Tor Vallum is the rough description of the Sith master. Being described as a non-human along with a few other creative words; what Tor Vallum looks like has been left widely up to the imagination.

However, concept art from an upcoming Star Wars art book has been leaked online and it shows us exactly what this Tor Vallum looks like. Forbes was kind enough to share the leaked concept art and now that I’ve seen Tor Vallum I’m really glad they went with resurrecting Emperor Palpatine.

Showing what looks like an overweight Yoda with spider legs perched upon a gigantic egg. It’s nothing impressive if we’re being honest. In fact, it brings up memories from the Star Wars: Rebels series when Kanan Jarus encountered Bendu; a being strong with the force, but ultimately a little pointless in the long run and ultimately anticlimactic.

Basically, having Emperor Palpatine return was definitely the right decision. Tor Vallum is a nice idea and all, but it’s a good thing it stayed just that. An idea.
