Star Wars Episode 8 trailer is out and I had the pleasure of watching it the other day. Being a Star Wars fan, I was intrigued by both the title and what was in the actual trailer. As expected, we will undoubtably see Rey train to become more powerful than she was in Episode 7, we saw a glimpse of Kylo Ren without his helmet and his lightsaber, we saw some very interesting things.
Am beginning to think that they are taking “the Force” in a direction much different than what George Lucas laid down in the first three Episodes, with the Force being more along the lines of Eastern Religions such as Taoism, Buddism.
We see this from Rouge One, where Donnie Yen’s character repeatedly says ” I am one with the force, the force is with me”, and that does echo from what I know of some Eastern religious philosophies and religions, such as the Yin and Yang, oneness with everything.
Speaking of Rouge One………
Ok, lets not get off topic here…..but yeah, hopefully not too big of a spoiler here, but anyway, would love to see any comments anyone has on what their predictions are for Episode 8.
So, basicially to get back on topic of Episode 8, I have a few of my own predictions.
1.) We will find out more about who Rey and Kylo Ren are.
2.) I don’t think they will get into who Snoke is…..I think the story will focus more on Rey at this point, Luke possibly and we will learn about the origins of the force possibly.
3.) Hopefully we will learn more deeper aspects of the force, and this can possibly take the Star Wars universe into much newer directions.
4. ) At the end of the trailer we see Luke say its time for the Jedi to end…….but off hand this seems like a bad thing, it can be, but I like surprises and this has the possibility to greatly expand the Star Wars universe as well.
If you haven’t seen it……….
