Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s AXED scene revisited in Darth Vader story
Star Wars fans were greeted with the third trilogy’s conclusion in 2019 with the arrival of The Rise of Skywalker. Throughout the film viewers saw the conclusion of both Rey Skywalker’s (played by Daisy Ridley) story, and indeed that of Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver). Despite the Disney duo receiving the ending of their stories, it seems as if a lot was left out – including some scenes which involved Kylo Ren learning of new ways of the Force.
Kylo Ren was originally supposed to be going on a deeper journey throughout The Rise of the Skywalker.
Not only was his allegiance to the Dark Side left ambiguous in the first few cuts of the film, he also spent some time journeying out into the galaxy for more information.
During his search for the Sith wayfinder, he was supposed to stumble upon one creature which helped him along the way – and indeed warned him away of it.
The creature in question is a spider-like being, sat atop a giant’s head, with the ability to speak telepathically, and indeed has connections to the Force.
The first iteration of the creature is still present in the novelisation of the Rise of the Skywalker book.
Its introduction reads: “A giant emerged, a hairless creature sheening with wetness, bits of lake detritus clinging to its pasty skin. Its eyes were squeezed shut, but it could still see after a fashion, because draped over its massive bald head and across one shoulder was a second creature with long spidery tentacles.
“The two were locked in symbiosis. Kylo sensed the giant’s pain, as though it were a slave to the spidery being that clung to it. Yet neither could it survive alone.”
Some concept art of Kylo meeting the creature was even created, which can be seen below.

Now, fans have been given another glimpse at the story, as the latest Darth Vader comic book – Darth Vader #8 – explores “The eye of the Webbish Bog”.
In the new story, Vader meets this creature and finds himself stunned by its powers.
Earlier this year it was revealed the scene in question with Kylo Ren was actually filmed, but was axed from the film.
Special FX creator Neal Scanlon recently told Collider: “So we actually did build it and we took it to a place called Black Park in the UK, which is close to Pinewood Studios, where we shot it in a lake on location, and that sequence exists.

“Unfortunately it didn’t make it to the movie story, plot-wise, etc. It was a fully practical character shot in a location, and it is amazing.”
With rumours sprouting up that a new trilogy will venture back in time and undo everything that was done in the sequel trilogy, could the Eye of Webbish Bog make a return in the coming years?
Earlier this year noted Star Wars leaker Doomcock revealed that there are “plans” to reboot the sequel trilogy entirely.
He explained: “The first scenario is a kind of soft reboot of the sequel trilogy, and is by far the worst option on the table.
“In this scenario they use the ‘Veil of the Force’ to go back in time and warn Luke not to try and kill Ben Solo.”
No plans for the next Star Wars trilogy has been revealed just yet – but fans are extremely hopeful.
It is still uncertain if the new trilogy will directly continue on from Rey Skywalker’s saga, or become something new entirely.
The Star Wars Saga is available to watch on Disney Plus.
