Robotical712’s Plot Prediction – Post Trailer

With the trailer here, it’s time to update my prediction.

This is based on my full background theory.

Oct. 12 update: Josey pointed out there are huts in the background of the Luke picture, suggesting it’s the hut explosion scene.

July 24 – Version 1.0

Palpatine’s Obsession with Children

I’ve noticed there’s a plot element that keeps getting repeated – Palpatine, his Empire and the First Order keep targeting children. I’ve put together a list of instances in the new Canon to illustrate how pervasive it is:

  • Sidious kidnapped Maul at a young age to be his first Sith apprentice.
  • Cad Bane kidnapped multiple Force sensitive children for Sidious.
  • The Inquisitors’ secondary task is to locate and abduct Force sensitives – particularly young children (the Lothal rebels foil the abduction of two infants and the Sixth Brother investigates a four year old girl in Ahsoka).
  • 20 year old Prelate Verge in Twilight Company was raised to worship Palpatine and saw himself as the future.
  • Rax’s obsession with children in Life Debt unnerves Sloane. Gallius himself was recruited by Palpatine as a child.
  • Brendol Hux’s ‘feral’ children in EE form the basis of the First Order stormtrooper corps.
  • The First Order abducts young children and raises them to be fanatically loyal soldiers (the Visual Encyclopediamentions the FO’s officers are raised this way too).
  • Armitage Hux is raised from age six to eventually take his father’s place.
  • Snoke targeted Ben ‘since the beginning’.

While it hasn’t been directly tied to it yet, I would like to point out Rey was ‘abandoned’ at age five on a planet that just happens to be the last stop before the Unknown Regions and Snoke.

Evil isn’t born; it’s made.

The Force Awakens Symbolism: Duality of Hands

Introduction

The continuing Star Wars mythos is no stranger to symbolism. We see plenty of it in the prequel trilogy as well as the original trilogy. It only makes sense that this storytelling technique be continued into the sequel trilogy of movies.

I believed I have identified symbolism being used in The Force Awakens in regards to how Rey and Luke’s relationship will function in The Last Jedi. Rey and Luke’s “hands” act as symbols that enhance a story of a damaged and lost master and an innocent and naive learner coming together to complete one another.
