The Last Jedi presented some very unexpected story beats that have left fans scratching their heads at the significance of Snoke. At the same time, the content related to the film has revealed some new clues on where Snoke comes from. Let’s take a what it all means–spoilers and speculation below!
After seeing the film more than once, many people started picking up on clues sprinkled throughout The Last Jedi. That is, the significance of this one didn’t become apparent to me until at least the second viewing and after a few discussions. Let’s take a look at this scene here today, spoilers and speculation below.
In a recent interview, Rian Johnson discusses his motivations for many of his choices in The Last Jedi. Some of what he says has implications for Episode IX. Spoilers below for The Last Jedi and potential spoilers for Episode IX. Let’s discuss.
If you haven’t seen The Last Jedi yet, you’ll probably see it tomorrow or the next day. We haven’t seen it, but we’re here to provide our personal predictions with NO outside knowledge, other than the past few years of spoilers that we have reviewed. We’ve been spoiler-free since the premiere, and can’t wait to get our butts into the movie seats. That said, there may be some spoilers below from stuff we’ve discussed over the past few years.
Snoke is a powerful dark side Force-user. He’s not a Sith, and he’s not a Jedi. How exactly does he get his power? Let’s explore a recent quote from Andy Serkis and explore a path of connections to the Jim Henson movie, The Dark Crystal. Spoilers and speculation below
The Star Wars databank, and other material, explicitly state that there is a “mysterious connection” between Rey and Kylo Ren. Of all the questions I have going into The Last Jedi (in like 8 days!!!), it is the meaning of this connection that intrigues me most. Surprisingly, as it turns out, the connection between Rey and Kylo Ren just might have its origins in The Phantom Menace. That’s because of a lot of new key details have been revealed about the connection between Kylo Ren and Rey from recent interviews–and the subtext of some of the interviews have shed a lot of light what exactly this connection is. In this speculative article, I will review the new details about the mysterious connection between Rey and Kylo Ren, and go out on a limb regarding what it means.
We’ve been given four new TV spots this week and they are giving me life! Lets break down each one and look at what is new and what we can learn. Spoilers ahead!
We know very little about the character Rose, who will be introduced into the Star Wars saga in The Last Jedi. The details we have are few and far between. Nevertheless, we may have figured out what is likely Rose’s arc. Let’s take a tour of what we do know and connect the dots. more “Rose Tico’s hero’s journey”
Unless you live under a rock or are on a social media blackout to avoid The Last Jedi spoilers you heard the news yesterday; Rian Johnson is going to be making a new Star Wars Trilogy with his collaborator Ram Bergman. WHAT? OK lets look at the VERY little information dropped yesterday and make some wild guesses on what that new trilogy will encompass.
In our article last week, we discussed one of the most intriguing scenes of the trailer–Kylo’s offer to Rey. This week, we’d like to expand on it a little more, and talk about possible connections to the rest of the saga.
You know the one. Rey speaking, the darkness surrounding her light shining on her face, Kylo in the dark with his stretched out. Internet sleuths quickly deduced that this was a misdirection and the two scenes were shot at different places and take place at different times in the film. They were right about the scenes are different shots but is it really misdirection? Lets explore these scenes, as always potential spoilers ahead.
The Force-back in The Force Awakens showed us Luke looking heart broken next to R2 with a burning building in the background. That image gave us ideas of what may have happened, and most of the theories developed went with “Luke came home to find his Academy, and students killed by Kylo Ren and possibly the Knights of Ren.” But now we know that is not true. Let’s talk about what that means.
We just got our first look at the official trailer for The Last Jedi. The look is stunning, crisp, mature, and although it looks very unique, it manages to still look very Star Wars. As with most trailers, several scenes in the trailer might not be what they seem. Today, let’s take a look at what could be called “Kylo Ren’s second test”. Spoilers and speculation below.
Ever since Mark Hamill said he fundamentally disagreed with Rian Johnson’s choices for Luke and the “The Jedi must end” line in the teaser, people have speculated that Luke will go dark. They are wrong. Today we’re going to explore why they are wrong and what Mark and the line really means.
We’ve got enough details about Finn, Rose, and DJ, that things are starting to solidify. Let’s take a look of what exchanges the three of them might have.
Hello everyone out there in Star Wars fandom! We’re back to contemplate some of the leaks, rumors, and spoilers for the Star Wars films. Hopefully, we can connect the dots and make a concrete prediction about everyone’s favorite diminutive, orange pirate: Maz Kanata.
Hello everyone out there in Star Wars land. We’re back to contemplate some theories about the sequel trilogy. In particular, how the arc of the sequel trilogy pertains to Kylo Ren/Ben Solo. Let’s get to it.
We know very little about Benicio del Toro’s character, but what we do know is starting to fit into the emerging big picture. Let’s take a moment and contemplate why our heroes Finn and Rose need a “hacker”, or “slicer” in the parlance of the galaxy far far away. more “Why Finn and Rose need a “slicer””
There has been much speculation on Rey’s orgins and one of the most prevalent ideas is that we see her family die in the Force-back in The Force Awakens. I’m referring of course to the “Clan” that was killed by Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren. Unfortunately, the timeline doesn’t really work for most of those theories, so the question is then who are the Clan? Let’s look into what we have learned and see who they might actually be. Potential spoilers ahead.
What follows is a lot of speculation based on several rumors and leaks. There could be some potential spoilers here, so beware!
Let me be honest, the first time I saw the Praetorian guards on MakingStarWars.net I was concerned. I thought they might be a little too derivative. I have changed my mind, these guys might be everything we hoped the Knights of Ren would be. Lets talk about them, their inspiration, and what it might mean for their future.
Today we’re going to revisit some leaks about Luke in The Last Jedi. What could these details say about the story of the movie? Let’s find out, but beware of potentially major spoilers.
The Mortis Arc from the Clone Wars is a puzzling one. Did it really happen or was it an illusion? Are we done with those characters, or will they end up being a larger part of the Star Wars saga? Could they have any connections to the sequel trilogy? Let’s speculate.
Today we are going to explore a few ideas about an image that is both familiar and new. This will have potential spoilers so if that ain’t your thing run away now.
At the end of The Force Awakens we were all ready for Luke to be Rey’s master and train her. However it seems like what we expected isn’t what we are going to get. Let’s a look at what we know, and make some connections…
While we did not get a trailer at D23 we did get a ton of new information and confirmation of several things as well. I’m going to focus on Finn today and what we can speculate and confirm based on the snippets we saw. Potential spoilers ahead.
D23 attendees got a treat yesterday, along with those standing by on the internet. A new “behind the scenes” video has been released by Lucasfilm. Let’s take a look at what this tells us about the movie.
The Sith under Palpatine had a goal, destruction of the Jedi and to rule the Galaxy. The First Order under Snoke has a goal, destruction of the Jedi and to Rule the Galaxy. In the old EU the darkside seemed to have the same goal 1000 years before ANH and few hundred years after. The question is why do they want to rule the Galaxy? Why did the First Order decide to leave the Unknown regions and attempt to take over? Lets see what we know and if we can figure out the motivations that drive Snoke and the First Order.
There is an emerging narrative of the importance of special Force-sensitive trees in the Star Wars galaxy. Let’s take a look at the latest in what we know about these trees, and how they will play into The Last Jedi. Spoilers below, so proceed carefully.
Lucasfilm has episodic films and spin-off “Star Wars Story” films planed for the next few years. But what happens next? Let’s dig up some old rumors and see what it could be. What follows is mostly speculation, so not much spoilers.
Monsters have been a recurring part of the Star Wars saga. From the “dianoga” from A New Hope, to the “bigger fish” of The Phantom Menace, our heroes have repeatedly encountered large dangerous creatures. The Last Jedi is certainly no different, and several details have emerged about a critical scene. Let’s take a moment to discuss, spoilers below.
We’ve had a rush of new info on some new guards in The Last Jedi. Let’s take a look at everything we know. Spoilers and speculation ahead!
In the season 2 episode entitled “Shroud of Darkness”, Ezra chooses his path by reciting the following Lothal rhyme:
Loth-rat, Loth-cat, Loth-wolf, run. Pick a path and all is done.
Is there any bigger meaning to this saying, or is it just a funny rhyme? And what exactly is a Loth-wolf, and how does it play into Season 4? Read on for more.
With the Vanity Fair article last week we got a few new shots of Luke Skywalker and one thing was conspicuously missing, his lightsaber. The weapon of Jedi Knight that told Vader Luke had completed his training, the question is why. Let’s jump into what rumors are out concerning Luke and see if we can figure it out. Potential Spoilers ahead.
Ever since way back in 2015 when we heard that Benicio del Toro will play a character in The Last Jedi we’ve been dying to find out just what he will be doing in the film. Let’s take a moment to review what we know, and what we think we know about this character.
The Star Wars films have always upped the ante. When viewed in episodic order, the big climax at the end has always taken a bigger and bigger scale. From IV, V, VI, and VII we have gone from Death Star, to Death Star II, to StarKiller base. Where could we possibly go next? The answer might be right under our noses. Although this is a speculative article, there are possible spoilers as well, so be warned!
Doctor Aphra is probably one of the more intriguing new characters to the Star Wars universe, at least among those that we haven’t seen on screen. Let’s take a moment to contemplate how she could play into the sequel trilogy. Potential spoilers below.
The teaser trailer for The Last Jedi is full of surprises. We’ve no doubt been digging through images and clips for weeks trying to figure out what it all means! However, there is one thing that nobody has spotted yet. It just might be an easter egg that makes a subtle nod to the Star Wars Ring Theory. Read on for more.
We have been hearing about birds on Ahch-To for a while now and this week MakingStarWars.net gave us a bit more to work with. With Rebels showing convorees and now these new guys its got me thinking about why are birds or bird-like creatures are showing up in Star Wars and what the are all about.
Today we bring you a small article on one of our favorite characters:
Finn. We only got a glimpse of him in the trailer but that glimpse did reveal a few things. Lets look at what we can learn and how we think it will fit into the plot of The Last Jedi. Potential spoilers below, so beware!
Lots of fans were shocked by the quote from Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi teaser trailer. In fact there is a strong possibility that Mark Hamill himself had this impression. Let’s take a moment to try and understand what it could mean.
One of the oldest mysteries in Star Wars is the trick of the vanishing Jedi. Anyone who’s seen A New Hope knows that Obi Wan Kenobi mysteriously vanishes to become more powerful than Vader could possibly imagine. We’ve discussed this a bit before, but the Rebels Season 3 finale just may shed new light on how certain Force-users can do it.
Tomorrow we get the showdown this season has been teasing all year… Obi-wan vs Maul II: The Duel in the Dune Sea. The question is what happens. Will Obi-wan kill Maul (again), will Ezra deal the final blow, or will Maul walk/run away? Also will we see Luke? Let’s speculate.
We were originally told that the “spin-off” films are to be origin stories, but later learned Han Solo will not be. At least, Han Solo will probably establish the character that we see at the beginning of A New Hope. So the movie itself is a backstory. However, we still might expect that a backstory will be presented in the movie that describes how Han got to the place he is in the Han Solo movie. You might call this Han’s “back-backstory”. I’m going to take a moment and contemplate how and what might be be presented in the upcoming film.
As we reported earlier this week, there have been updates to the StarWars databank entries for Rey and Kylo Ren indicating “a mysterious connection linking” them. Let’s take a look at what this could possibly mean.
Finn, no last name, First Order defector, Resistance fighter, Lightsaber wielder, terrible pilot and all around good guy. When we last saw him he was unconscious after a lightsaber strike to the back and we had no knowledge of how he would be when he woke. Well we’ve gotten some clues and today we’re going to spend a little time on my favorite new Star Wars character and speculate based on what we have learned. Potential spoilers Ahead!
The title for Episode VIII has been revealed. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters this December, but what exactly does the name mean?
There has been a view of the rebellion for close to 40 years now that they were fighting for freedom but doing so in a way that made them better than the Empire they rebelled against. In movies you never got the idea that they would resort to the tactics of the Empire: fear, pain, and suffering. But for the first time this has changed and it started when we were introduced to Cassian.
Hello everyone out there in Star Wars land. Where back again to take a look at the latest Star Wars news throughout the web. It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan! Let’s see why:
Yeah, that’s right. I’m about to drop a mega-theory right now. Beware of potential spoilers for Episode VIII and the sequel trilogy. If what I’m proposing is true, it could be pretty major.
