Hello, and thanks for stopping by for another edition of the weekly Star Wars recap! As we patiently wait for the new The Last Jedi trailer, we have some new newsy tidbits to chew on. Let’s get to the news!
Is General Hux returning for Episode IX?
In a recent interview with IGN, General Armitage Hux actor Domhnall Gleeson left some people wondering if he is returning for Episode IX. Not sure how to interpret this one. Is he just covering himself and trying to not say anything, or is he really avoiding saying he is in IX? From the article:
“I can’t speak from any perspective except for the fact as somebody who likes the movies because it’s not been disclosed to anybody — because obviously nobody knows what’s going to happen with The Last Jedi — whether I’ll be involved in that film or not,”
Confirmation of “fathiers” name
This one isn’t huge news, but it has been confirmed in a new Star Wars book that the name of the “space horse” will be “fathiers”. This one has been known for a while, but good to get the confirmation.
Yoda story from From a Certain Point of View leaked online
Jedi-bibliotek has found some audio online from a pre-Empire story involving Yoda and Obi Wan. The story makes numerous references to the OT and the prequels, including the news that Yoda’s blanket is actually Qui-gon’s Jedi robe! Check the link and listen in, because it’s pretty good.
Star Wars teases the upcoming trailer

In a recent tweet, Star Wars has teased the possibility of a trailer coming soon. The best evidence points to Oct 16th, but this tweet certainly makes me wonder if it is sooner than that? One can hope, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.
