Rumors that I tend to believe.
The Knights Of Ren are a big part of this movie and itís possible because there is a new villain that one of the Knights turns on Kylo.
Reylo is happening.
Lando has a big role, the screen time that would have been Leiaís essentially. He was in principal photography for over 2 months.
Hux is a double agent. He informs the resistance and attempts to splinter the first order to follow him vs Ren. There is a small chance heís aiding Snoke to hunt down and kill Rey and Ren.
Snoke is alive. Either because heís Darth Plegius or something we donít know yet. The connection between Rey/Ren was unbroken at the end of TLJ which was a big hint of Snokeís status.
There will be a deeper dive into what the force is including the world of force ghosts which will be explored a bit. Both Rey and Ren will learn about the nature/history of the force and Jedi/sith lore.
Snokeís scars? He made the mistake of taking on Skywalker. I think this will be actually shown in a flashback.
Sounds like Grand Admiral Thrawn comes in at some point and that may be what drives Rey and Ren together. That or fighting Snoke??
Thereís a lot more including at least one big character perishing and everything iím Hearing makes it sound like Abrams has gone Francis Coppola Apocalyspe Now BIG in this movie. Heís out to fix VIII and tie all the movies together while also explaining the histryof the force.
This will be a wild ride. Could be 2 movies or one very long movie.
Oh...the allied landing at Normandy beach is an inspiration for one sequence...
Also, evidently in the books for both TFA and TLJ they go into Snoke whispering to both Rey and Ren at different times in their heads. At one point I think in the forest in TFA he tells Rey to kill Ren...
Anyway...I canít wait. Trailer drops April 11
