Does the new Star Wars trailer show Rey joining the Dark Side?

On Monday we all got a glimpse of the final chapter of Star Wars.  The trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker dropped and it includes one little nugget that is sure to cause hysteria among fans.  The trailer begins with a montage of clips from previous Star Wars films, including the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy.  Near the end you begin to see flashes of the new film including a few brief seconds of what appears to be Darkside Rey.

Rey, the hero of the new trilogy and heir apparent to Luke Skywalker appears dressed in black and weilding an awesome double-sided light sabre pictured below.

To this point, we still don’t know much about Rey’s history.  Who her parents are, where she comes from.  Nor do we know exactly what The Rise of Skywalker means.  Is Rey a Skywalker?  Is she turning the Skywalkers into an unstoppable Dark Side force where she savagely weilds a double-sided light sabre destroying all that is good in her path?  Or maybe it’s all just an elaborate rouse.

The fact is, there’s just not enough facts.  In the meantime enjoy the full trailer below and don’t hesitate to contact me with your Rise of Skywalker theories!
