Batshit Crazy Rumored Plot Details for STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII
POSSIBLE MAJOR SPOILERS!!!
Some rumored plot details for Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII have surfaced online, and if they are true, this is absolutely insane. There’s no doubt it will piss a lot of fans off, but I’m sure there are some that will embrace it as well.
Mind you, this is just a rumor that was found on Reddit. Regardless, it makes for some intriguing and fun reading. The movie is currently in production, so it’s not that far-fetched to think that some legit information from the film could leak out at this point.
The information goes into a lot of detail, so if it is fake, a lot of work was put into it. If you want to learn about what could be in store for Episode VIII… proceed. But again, take this with a grain of salt! As of right now, this is just something that is fun to read and talk about. One thing is for sure, I don’t think anyone saw this coming.
Here you go!
The backstory to Luke and his Jedi being wiped out is that Snoke seduced Kylo and a few of the other students to the dark side and tasked them with killing everyone. Luke and a few others survived, including a young Rey who was subsequently dumped on Jakku by Luke.
Rey's mom died in the attack.
Rey is pissed at Luke because she guesses that he was her father and is angry at him for abandoning her. Luke turns to her and says "No, you are my father".
Rey is the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker. Luke went to the first Jedi temple to better understand how the process works. He learned that the spirit of the chosen one is reincarnated by the Force every time the universe is thrown out of balance, which apparently happens on a semi-regular basis (Anakin was hardly the first time the chosen one reincarnated). This is why she's so crazy powerful with the Force (remember that Anakin blew up the Trade Federation donut ship by himself when he was like 8 years old).
Rey was the product of a virgin birth, but midichlorians aren't mentioned (Luke says "you are a child of the Force").
Luke is hesitant to train her because, according to Jedi history, the chosen one always struggles with staying on the light side of the Force because of the chaotic power running through them. He's afraid that she could become Vader 2.0. If he trains her to fight Kylo, and she turns dark, she would do way more damage to the galaxy than Kylo could ever dream of doing.
He ultimately trains her anyway and leaves everything up to the Force. He makes this decision in a scene where he confers with the ghosts of Obi-Wan and Yoda (Ewan McGregor and Frank Oz come back).
Rey learns lightsaber skills, Force skills, and has a vision quest thing where she talks with Maz Kanata (unsure if it’s telepathy or just a dream) and Hayden Christenson. The latter tells her that she is him, but different, and there’s a quick scene where we see hundreds of other Force ghosts who are implied to be past chosen ones.
