Star Wars Episode VIII :The Last Jedi

Postby Phantom Phenom » Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:45 pm

The story will focus on the Skywalker family, so much so that Prequel Trilogy star Hayden Christensen is rumored to return as Anakin Skywalker.

What possible reason would they need that emotionless waste of flesh to return?

HIS part of the story was already told (ruined)!

Two cast members confirmed

Del Toro will play "a villain" which is interesting ... immediately the concept of the "Collector" blows your mind :)

Here is the synopsis

"Rey took her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will continue her epic journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode VIII."


the movie will feature a short time-jump. According to that theory, upon finding the former Jedi Master, the space scavenger-turned-Force bearer will request him to train her (Rey) for the upcoming battle with Kylo Ren and supreme leader Snoke.

Luke, who is bearing the burnt of training Kylo as a Jedi – who ultimately turned into the dark side – will finally agree to train her and the movie will jump a few months ahead to show the training complete before the duo begin their space adventure.

According to the synopsis, the son of the Darth Vader will accompany Ridley's character during her epic space adventure along with Finn and Poe Dameron. In the previous movie, the face-off between Rey and Kylo during the climax became one of the fan-favourite scenes as the former overpowered the commander of the First Order before being separated by a fissure.

This one will open on an ice-planet called...I dunno...Roth. The rebels will barely escape Kylo Ren's assault. Rey will have a vision that leads her to the swamp planet of Megoba, where she'll meet an...orange...jedi creature called Rhoda, who will teach her about the force. Finn and friends will regroup on the cloud city of Mespin, where Poe Dameron's old friend Fando will betray them to the Empire, and Rey will have to save them, though Kylo will announce he's her cousin and cut off her foot.

It'll be just as original with just as many great new ideas as the last one.

Director Rian Johnson has promised some weird things for the next episode.

Just remember George Lucas isn't involved in this new trilogy.


y'all theory's out of the window

Long-time Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan has already promised that incoming director Rian Johnson's is doing things very differently from reboot specialist JJ Abrams.

"These movies will all be so different," he told the LA Times. "Rian Johnson is a friend of mine – he's going to make some weird thing. If you've seen Rian's work, you know it's not going be like anything that's ever been in Star Wars. You couldn't have three more different people than JJ, Rian and Colin [Trevorrow, Episode 9 director]."



Spoiler:
– the heroine of Star Wars: The Force Awakens – is Luke Skywalker's daughter may turn out to be totally off the mark. Instead, he proposes she could turn out to be the daughter of Supreme Leader Snoke.

I want to make sure I'm not missing something. Do they not already have a plan in place for how each of these is roughly going to flow, with character backgrounds and arcs at least somewhat figured out, or will they simply throw **** at the wall between movies and see what sticks and put that in the next?

I feel like they should generally already have an idea on who everyone is and where they came from/where they're going. Otherwise, you wind up with two siblings who don't know they're siblings tounging each other like Jedi training was conducted in Alabama, then they find out later that they're related, then they both act like they always knew they were related. Eww.

More Knights of Ren Details Surface from Star Wars 8 Set


Apparently, The Knights of Ren, whom Ben Solo leads, will have quite a substantial role in Star Wars: Episode VIII. Last week, we got to hear about a scene featuring these characters, only briefly glimpsed in The Force Awakens, which features Jedi Master Luke Skywalker obliterating them while Kylo Ren and Rey face off in their first of two big lightsaber battles. Now we have even more details, which tell of a crashed ship and a possible Knight death.



These latest plot details come courtesy of Making Star Wars, and arrive from those in full view of what is being shot in Ceann Sibeal, Ireland. In the past few days, it has been reported that a ship cockpit was transported to the location under a tarp. This vehicle is either very tiny, or will later be extended through the use of CGI. This particular scene take place on top of a lush green mountain, and is set on the planet of Ahch-To, where Luke has gone into seclusion.

The ship cockpit appeared to be on fire, smoldering, with giant fans billowing out smoke. The ship is described as a SR-71 Blackbird in shape, and the scene features what is believed to be the Knights of Ren. Their costumes are very similar to the band of warriors last seen surrounding Kylo Ren in Rey's force vision. The actors spotted on set were wearing all black with matching helmets and weapons that looked similar to the medieval knights.

This ominous group slowly approached what is believed to be a crashed ship. They all kneel at the smoke-filled site. Apparently, one of the Knights has either perished, or they are getting ready for someone to step out of the ship. What is happening at this point is not immediately clear. It is speculated that this is actually the Knights of Ren's ship, and that they crash landed on Ahch-To in their quest to capture Rey and kill Luke Skywalker.

The most important thing noted about the scene being shot is that Kylo Ren is no where to be seen. It is believed that he could be laying injured in the ship's debris, or more likely, the other Knights are kneeling, awaiting Kylo to set from the downed vehicle. There is no indication as to why the ship crashed, with those scenes most likely being shot elsewhere. Making Star Wars goes onto guess that this might actually be a funeral pyre. But that seems unlikely. Though, it is noted that getting to Luke and Rey on Ahch-To is proving to be more difficult for the Knights than planned. That said, there is no context belong laid out for these shots. It is, however, believed that this scene takes place before Rey and Ben's big showdown, where Luke kills off all the Knights with the exception of Kylo.

This scene was shot during the day. The previously mentioned fight scene was shot at dusk as the sun was setting on Ahch-To. It may be possible that the Knights of Ren are larger in number than previously glimpsed in The Force Awakens. At the end of the day, what is confirmed is that a group of actors wearing costumes very similar to The Knights of Ren kneeled down around a downed spacecraft. And it took place on Ahch-To.

In related news, further proving that someone definitely could have seen these scenes shot, is the fact that a couple of fans broke into the set to photograph themselves standing on top of the Millennium Falcon. You can see the photos in question below. Most interesting is the image of a giant tree, which many believe is actually the long lost Jedi temple that Luke Skywalker went searching for. What hasn't been said about these scenes is where Chewbacca and R2-D2 are in all of this. Are they just waiting in the Millennium Falcon while Luke and Rey dispatch the bad guys? With the Falcon still on site, it doesn't appear that they flew home.

Someone released some movie scripts with a scene regarding Snoke telling Luke he is Vader's father.

Darth Plagueis created Anakin in the books.

There's a good video online suggesting it is Mace Windu.

edit:



In this theory, there's a little Rey theory as well that I find most interesting.

Spoiler:
Is Rey Palpatine's granddaughter?

Well Snoke and Pleageius look close enough in appearance to be the same person. I suppose I can buy it but Snoke reminds me of something you'd have seen in Lord Of The Rings.

The only problem I have is that at the end of ROTJ Anakin fulfilled the prophecy of bringing balance to the force by killing Palpatine and then abandoning the ways of the Sith in one fell swoop. How is it that the Sith were to rise again?

Now I admit I've never read the books (but I am familiar with the "rule of two" and what comes with it) but it doesn't make any sense for Anakin to have been the chosen one only for his work to be undone. I supposed it stands that anyone can join the Sith at any time but wouldn't that in theory implicate that Anakin must be the one to bring balance back to the force once more?

Actually, Anakin brought balance to the force when the Jedi were hunted down and killed.

Before Anakin went dark, there were multitudes of Jedi and almost no Sith. By the mass hunting and death of Jedi, Anakin brought balance. Just not the way we thought.

I guess I never thought of it that way. I suppose in literal terms with Kenobi and Yoda being the two survivors of the Jedi lineage and Sideous and Vader being the two Sith it would make sense. I must confess that I didn't care much for The Force Awakens. It wasn't a bad movie but in A New Hope Luke couldn't even defend himself blindfolded against a probe shooting lasers at him. Yet Rey is this magnificent prodigy capable of bettering the Sith without even really knowing what the force is.

Because of this I can't take Kylo Ren seriously as an antagonist.

To be truthful with you guys, Swashy might end up right in this regard.

Kylo Ren could very well become a protagonist.
