We’ve spoken before of Finn’s role specifically in the Skywalker family arc, and how his future is heavily foreshadowed to interweave with them as Han Solo’s did before him–but what about where he came from before the beginning of The Force Awakens? In this article, I make a case for a backstory for Finn that both adds depth to his past, and gives meaning to his future.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted my review of Solo: A Star Wars Story; now I’m going take a look at what the movie adds to the setting and what storylines it might create.
For the most part, the dialog in the adult novelization reflects the movie. There are some places with additional dialog and one particular addition caught my eye.
In the first Rebels episode of the second season, Minister Tua tells the Spectres there’s another reason the Empire had taken such a strong interest in Lothal besides it’s mineral resources. Unfortunately, she’s killed while defecting and they and we don’t learn what that reason was. However, as we enter the final stretch of the show, hints about what the Emperor really wants there are building. In this post I’ll explore some of the hints and how they might connect to the bigger picture being built across the franchise. Highly speculative.
For this post I have attempted to take images from the trailers and behind the scenes footage and put them in chronological order and interspersed the images with my plot prediction for the Last Jedi.
Here’s my fifth and final plot outline. A couple of changes in this one. The biggest is moving Finn and Rose back to the Supremacy and Poe leading the destruction of the Dreadnought. Based on reports, it appears Poe advocates something extreme.
This is based on my full background theory.
I originally wrote this back in June on Reddit, but it’s worth looking at it again with the mention of the research facility in Legends of Luke Skywalker and Battlefront 2 releasing next week. –robotical712
