    VIII has begun filming, and Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran have been cast. http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-episode-viii-now-filming

    Benicio was great in Sicario and I am SO happy that Laura Dern has been cast. She’s in everyone’s childhood movie.

    No idea who Dern or Tran are but Del Toro is awesome and Sicario is one of the best movies of the year.

    So I guess episode 8 is going to have the whole riding on back training thing again like ESB 😀

    What are the sources of this? The pirate was featured in an Insider story because he was in TFA, but none of this is on Kix’s Wookieepedia page. It seems far-fetched. Why wouldn’t Dooku just kill him..

    Its legit, because it was published by Disney-Lucasfilm…

    Same reason he didnt kill Echo I guess. They can get valuable info from them.

    But, with this, they could put a clone in the new trilogy if they wanted to…

    That’s true. Also, he was in stasis, so would he be the same age as the clones in the war? Probably a little older. Like 30s or 40s.

    Somewhat intriguing, warning possible leaked episode 8 stuff

    This is interesting but wild. Putting too much relevance on Rey, I think.

    Yeah makes her a bit too important for my taste.

    The guy talking is awkward but watch this. The theory isn’t perfect but I think it’s interesting, especially with the role reversal. Now it’s the Skywalker who is fighting for dark and a Palpatine who is fighting for the light.

    No because Palpatine is gay

    Ok so I was thinking about episode 8 and how it’s pretty different from the other Star Wars movies..

    All the other movies have years in between eachother, even the OT are like a year apart but I’m wondering how Episode 8 is going to pull that off…

    It seems like it’s set up to have Rey and Luke meet off the start but timeline wise that wouldn’t really work because it doesn’t give much time for the First Order to recover or Kylo to also heal and train.

    So I guess they will jump in like months after episode 7 ended and maybe have a flashback to Luke and Rey’s meeting or something. Still this movie will probably be the shortest gap of any of the main films.

    I feel like there will still be a time jump. We’re not going to see exactly what happened when Rey and Luke met, we’re going to jump to her being trained by him.

    I wonder how much they will show, I feel like Luke and Yoda together was a perfect amount of time film wise.

    Pretty sure it’s already confirmed it picks up straight after VII

    Hmm what if Rey becomes increasingly bad but Kylo becomes more good…

    Snoke sees Rey as stronger so he wants her instead and cuts Kylo out, if Snoke really is Plagueis then that might be something he would do…

    Then we see like Kylo go back to Luke and they work together against Rey and Snoke, though idk if they would kill Rey. But idk just a generic idea I saw in that review, it’s different from the other Star Wars movies but could be interesting if done right

    Like for Snoke this is a big game, he will let them kill eachother and then he will take the winner. Apparently there’s a part where they had Snoke talk to Rey and he told her to kill Kylo and join him, it might be in the novel. But it was and idea they had

    Next movie I’d expect Kylo to be more bad, but maybe Luke will train Rey well and Kylo will doubt that the dark side is stronger, after all Luke is credited for defeating Palpatine, people don’t know Vader killed him I don’t think.

    And then maybe Snoke displays his power and Rey sees more potential in the dark side, and sees Luke has little to teach

    I think we already saw parts where Kylo doubted himself and Snoke… when he looks into the mask of Vader and is practically asking for guideance of how the dark side is so powerful

    So I haven’t kept up with ep 7 and 8 only saw 7 a few months ago because my friend who is a casual fan kept asking me to watch it and give her my opinion on it. we were talking about it at lunch today and she asked who abandoned Rey and who I thought she was related to. Thought it would be easier to ask you guys then go searching through the net for the best Rey theories.

    I’m fairly certain Luke abandoned Rey for her protection, I feel like he handed her off to someone else who actually brought her to Jakku though

    Probably Rey but I think it’s illogical from a story perspective. Unless, like Newan said, Luke abandoned when she was so young she doesn’t even remember him.
