Didn’t Ewan McGregor do a “costume test” or something the other day at the volume? What if that was just a cover story? I wonder if he could appear as some sort of holocron recording from the Jedi archives or something?
I don’t think everything has to be connected, or should be, and I get that people liked how the first season was mostly separate from the rest of Star Wars, but it’s inevitable that we’re going to bump into some connections along the way. I don’t think they will take over the story though. We are still following our main characters. Cameos are just enriching the experience.
In 9 ABY, we’re not that far off from The First Order forming. I don’t know how many jars of Snoke fails they went through before they got a functional one, and I thought all that would have been done on Exegol, but I wouldn’t think it too strange to find a Snoke in a jar in the back of an Imperial base years after the fall of the Empire, knowing what we know now. Just because we see a hint of something from another story, doesn’t mean it has to be anything more than that. I doubt Gideon’s plan has anything to do with the Sith on Exegol and everything to do with those troopers on the walls.
I’m absolutely loving all this Star Wars talk. Everyone has so many ideas and none of us know anything. Brings back memories of how sure I was that Vader was lying about being Luke’s father. I mean, there’s no way Obi-Wan would mislead Luke, right?
