The Future of Star Wars, Episode IX and a Recent Leak

A recent Making Star Wars report provided a key bit of information that revives speculation I’ve previously done and results in an important addition to what I believe the future holds. This involves a potential leak for Episode IX.

Luke Didn’t Abandon Rey On Jakku (And Here’s Why)

One of the most common objections to Rey being a Skywalker is that it would mean Luke had abandoned her on Jakku, destroying his noble and heroic character. However, this is not the only possible option for the story of Rey’s separation from her father, and there are, in fact, hints within the films that point a different direction.

Star Wars: Found Families, Bloodline, and Arthurian Legend

– written by HanSpinel

Star Wars has always focused on family, and though the Skywalker Saga is unsurprisingly led by the Skywalkers, it is chock full of “found family” stories. In this article, I will highlight how unique the Skywalker bloodline story actually is to the saga, and how the concept of “bloodline” for the Skywalkers – in contrast to “family” – is presented as a burden each generation must overcome through choice, and not destiny. In other words, the Skywalkers themselves promote empowerment regardless of origin.

I will also argue that each trilogy has pitted Skywalker vs. Skywalker, and that the Sequel Trilogy is no different. Following, I revisit themes and narratives associated with Arthurian Legend as it pertains to the battle between Kylo Ren and Rey over the saber that belonged to Luke Skywalker, and his father before him – the Skywalker Legacy Saber. I conclude that several lines of reasoning all support the Star Wars Shadow Council’s Case of a delayed familial reveal for Rey Skywalker, Daughter of Light, and Heiress Apparent to Anakin Skywalker.

As we approach the middle of the post-TLJ, pre-Episode IX doldrums, it’s time for a little bit of fun, pointless speculation to make the days go by a bit faster. And what better way to do that than to spend several days meticulously compiling a list of all the actresses who could potentially play Rey’s mother in Episode IX? (There are probably better ways, I just chose this one). Below the jump, I explore which of these extremely similar looking British, brunette white ladies (insert beleaguered sigh here) is the best candidate to play the part, ranked in order from to least to most ridiculous. How serious am I about these choices? Not very. Or am I? Who can say. Read on to find out….
