I’m excited for the new movie, Star Wars Episode 8 “The Last Jedi”, while I have not read any reviews, comments, or theories regarding what is going to happen in Episode 8, I do have some of my own predictions, which I would love to hear anyone’s opinion on.
I have always wondered about Rey and where this series is headed, however, judging from the color of the wording I believe this will be a dark movie, much like Episode 5 was where Luke lost his hand.
(I did not make that meme, not sure who did, but I thought it was entirely appropriate for this post.)
I have a hunch that this will not end well for Rey, but its all a process of learning and her growing into an ever more powerful Jedi, or at least something that Luke will be training her for. The Jedi are no more, except for Luke, and will Luke be the “Last Jedi”? What exactly does the title mean? I don’t pretend to know all the details of the Star Wars Universe, I’m sure there are many great and valid theories on what will happen, but all in all that is my guess is that it will be a somewhat darker movie than the last with something happening to Rey, possibly Luke being killed as well.
There is also a lot of mystery surrounding Rey, I for one, think that she is related to Obi Wan Kenobi, and I personally would be glad if this turns out to be true as Obi Wan has been one of my personal favorite characters from the Star Wars Universe for a few reasons. First, he is a major character/Jedi throughout the first 6 episodes, while totally being in a few, he still set events into motion that reverberate throughout the movies. Second, I have to say he got a raw deal of sorts with the first six Episodes, having done so much for the Jedi he never received anything in return for all his accomplishments and I believe he was somewhat of an underrated character…..of course depending on how you view things. So, if they come out and connect Rey to Obi Wan I would be very happy with that. It would finally give Obi Wan a bit of justice in my opinion.
