Star Wars: The Last Jedi is expected to answer tsome of the biggest mysteries of the new trilogy. But while speculations are rampant, the franchise expect to shock fans with a big reveal. What could it be?
The Most Shocking Moment In Star Wars History?
The whole world came to a halt when Darth Vader told Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) that he is the young Jedi’s father in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. To this day, the scene remains to be one of the most memorable and shocking plot twists in the history of film. But its status is about to be contested.
According to a promotional ad going around in Japan and on the web, Star Wars: The Last Jedi directed by Rian Johnson has the most shocking reveal in the history of the sci-fi franchise. Star Wars News Net got a hold of a leaflet which boasts of “The Most Shocking Truth In Star Wars History Will Soon Be Revealed!”
The ad also provides a synopsis which mentions the death of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey (Daisy Ridley) meeting the last Jedi Knight in the galaxy and the ongoing war between the First Order and the Resistance. The leaflet further claims that Leia (Carrie Fisher), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and BB-8 will depart on a new mission. “The story has finally begun and it will lead to a mysterious climax,” promises the ad.
This does not really offer many details that people who follow confirmed news and fan speculations do not already know. But the claim that the movie will feature the most shocking revelation in the history of the franchise is quite curious.
The Mysteries of The Force Awakens
One of the biggest mysteries of the new trilogy is Rey and her parents. Many suspects that she is either a Skywalker or a Kenobi. Even Ridley once teased that the identity of her character’s parentage is pretty obvious from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Johnson also promised that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will not be a repeat of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
But seeing that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) seems to be at the center of the upcoming movie, then perhaps the most shocking revelation in the history of the sci-fi franchise will somehow be connected to him and his allegiance to the Dark Side of the Force. Perhaps, the big reveal has something to do with Supreme Leader Snoke?
A new theory first spotted by Express UK that Snoke will warn Kylo Ren not to follow the same path as his grandfather Darth Vader. “I believe it could be that Snoke tells Kylo Ren not to make the same mistakes Vader did in the original trilogy,” theorist Mike Zeroh explained. “When we’re looking at The Last Jedi we know Kylo is turning into Vader more and more – not because of his injuries, but appearance-wise – the things that Vader once used.”
Then, there is also the shocking statement uttered by Luke Skywalker in the first trailer for Episode VIII. He told Rey that it is time for the Jedi to end and fans desperately demand some explanations.
As of this writing, Lucasfilm is yet to issue a word about the leaflet. There is still over half a year before the new movie comes out so fans will likely hear more about the supposed big reveal in the coming months.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on Dec. 13. The movie also stars John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Billie Lourd, Peter Mayhew, Lupita Nyong’O, Kelly Marie Tan and Laura Dern.
