Fans already knew that Rey’s Force powers and skills would continue to grow in Episode 8.
Although it is still not clear whether Luke himself will be taking a hands on approach to her training.
Some new reports have even suggested they will spend much of The Last Jedi apart.
However, three new abilities for Rey have been confirmed: Dash Strike, Mind Trick and Insight.
WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS
Star Wars Youtube channel The Stupendous Wave has explained what each ability entails.
The new powers will be displayed first in the new Star Wars Battlefront II game from EA. These games are officially Canon, so everything Rey can do in the game, she can also do in the films.
The three abilities are explained in details below but none of them sound as terrifying as Luke’s deadly power of Force Repulse, which can tear enemies apart and has also just been confirmed.
The report says: “Dash Strike – Rey charges forward with her lightsaber held high, dealing damage to enemies who dare stand in her way.
“Mind Trick – Rey causes nearby enemies to be dazed and confused.
“Insight – Rey takes a moment to deeply sense her surroundings, revealing and highlighting all new enemies.”
Apart from the dramatic Dash Strike, the fact that Rey can aggressively alter the minds of her enemies and sense them before she can see them will make her a dangerous opponent.
She will need every skill she has if she faces Kylo Ren in the expected showdown on Ahch-To.
