Star Wars: The Last Jedi - *SPOILERS*
« on: December 10, 2017, 05:01:20 PM »
The spoilers coming in after the world premiere yesterday are sparse but major., DO NOT continue unless you want to know things about the new movie before it opens this week.  There is some doubt the spoilers are real, so the following is not certain.

Edited to add some space for the following spoilers.



























-Rey parent's are apparently revealed to be random space junkers.  The twist is that her parents are unimportant nobodies.

-Rey and Kylo apparently join together briefly at the end to kill Snoke.  Luke Skywalker is somehow involved in this from afar and dies in the conflict.  Trying to stitch a sequence of events together suggests that Snoke has Rey hostage -> Kylo "aids" Rey and they take out Snoke -> Luke sends a force projection of himself to stop Kylo from killing Rey and somehow dies in the process via "force draining."

You guys think these are real?  Do you like them if they are?  Feel free to put anything you've found as the day will likely continue to trickle out new spoilers and confirm or debunk the existing ones.

A few more lines...






















Hopefully this makes it harder to see spoilers.

I've edited some space into my original post.  I thought the tag in the title would do it, sorry.

Rey not being a Skywalker (or Solo, at least) would be disappointing for me.

I agree.  I've noticed, though, that on sites like iO9 and the AV Club over the past two years, the opposite view was expressed more frequently in comments.  On dedicated Star Wars boards, however, the vast majority wanted her parents to be significant.

I think it’s refreshing for her not to be a Skywalker but I still think the movie will be by-the-numbers.

It's subjective, of course, so I'm not saying you're wrong, but here's my take on it:

Whether these kind of twists work depends on the setting for me.  Teasing significance and then revealing the mundane can absolutely work and be humorous or poignant commentary on the nature of life, belief or even just keep a story from becoming cliche.

Star Wars, however, is the hero's journey writ large via space fantasy.  It's all about destiny, chosen ones and spiritual forces guiding the universe.  With Star Wars I want big picture, I want things connected and epic.

If you die as a force ghost, you die in real life!

This sounds awful.

If they succeed in killing snoke, does that mean Ren is the big bad in 9? Because he doesn’t seem like he could fill that role.

I want her to be a Kenobi, if she's anybody, and her being more powerful than everyone/ a Skywalker half breed is retarded based on everything we know about Star Wars

Unless we find out Ren is a weak ass bitch

But more powerful than Luke?

I want her to be a Palpatine. I like the idea that the granddaughter of the last trilogy's Big Bad turns out to be the hero of the next trilogy.

i'm honestly expecting a half-assed reincarnation of Anakin myself
