Which original Star War theories were correct?

SPOILER WARNING

March 20, 2018

Who are Rey’s Parents?

Fans finally discovered the answer to the two year old question that everyone had been wondering. The results were either disappointing or thought provoking depending on who the fan is. Rey’s parents were unknown people who sold her into slavery for drinking money. While it has the effect of humanizing the main character, it also disappointed some fans because it was a massive build up for a shallow drop off.

 

Who is Snoke?

Well, fans still do not know yet actually. As those who have already seen the movie know, Snoke is actually killed by Kylo Ren towards the end of the film, coming as as huge shock to most moviegoers. The decision to kill Snoke, who many thought would be the main antagonist, was a bold move and was taken with mixed reviews.

 

“They did a great job showing his strength but a poor job developing the character and diving into the character’s background, seeing as how he was one of the most mysterious characters in the series,” senior Jordan Williams said.

 

So what are the new theories?

 

Who. Is. Snoke?

Just because the mysterious being is dead, does not mean that he is just not going to appear again in some form or another. It makes almost no sense that the creators of the series would create such an mysterious and powerful character only to just turn around and kill him with no other mention of him or his importance in the past or present. It is possible that in the next movies, fans will be getting some sort of explanation as to who Snoke is, where he came from, or at least why he was in the series at all.

 

Where is Luke’s green lightsaber?

One big question going into “The Last Jedi” was if Luke Skywalker was going to have his legendary green lightsaber that was only seen in “Star Wars Episode Six: Return of the Jedi”. It would only make sense that he does, as he clearly lost his blue one when his hand was chopped off by Darth Vader in “The Empire Strikes Back”. While the lightsaber was seen in the movie, it was only in flashbacks, not in the present. Also, in Luke’s force projection scene when his force ghost faced off with Kylo Ren, he was holding Anakin Skywalker’s blue lightsaber, not his green one.

 

How will the next movie handle the passing of Carrie Fisher?

As many know, fans all throughout the galaxy were faced with the tragic loss of iconic actress Carrie Fisher, who portrayed Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga. The general consensus was that Leia was going to be killed off screen somehow in this movie, but as audiences saw, that did not happen. It will be interesting to see how the writers handle this, as they will have to tread very lightly to appeal to fans, as they already included they would not be recreating her using CGI. according to the independent.co.uk.

 

While many answers were given in the story, it did leave us with some to ponder over for another two years as we await the next entry in the Star Wars franchise.
