When acting in the capacity of Supreme Leader, Kylo Ren dons the ceremonial golden Snoking jacket.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Hehe, that suits him. Maybe he’ll befriend a defected Resistance member, give him the jacket and nickname him ‘Funn.’

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I know I said I’d be gone yesterday but I have one more thread to tie up.

With TROS just around the corner, I thought I’d make a last-ditch “prediction” of what is to come. This is just a fun little game to see if I can guess Disney and JJ correctly. It is not a wishlist of what I want.

I have not read any of the leaks. I have only watched the three trailers and a few of the promos. You won’t be spoiled by this post. Maybe I got it right, but there’s no way of nothing that. Most likely I got it wrong… for those who have seen the leaks, please don’t respond with hot/cold my guess is.

I predict the crawl will explain ever since the sacrifice of Luke, the Resistance has seen a surge in hope. They have rebuilt and are now threatening Kylo’s First Order. In desperation, Kylo learns of a secret macguffin that can bring back the dead. Kylo decides he will bring Darth Vader back to life. Only he can destroy the Resistance for good.

Meanwhile the Resistance has gathered on a jungle planet. Leia tutors Poe in leadership and Rey in the force. They learn of Kylo’s plan and move to the desert planet to stop them.

Despite their best efforts, the large desert battle fails, with Kylo acquiring the artifact and going to the Death Star ruins to reawaken Vader’s corpse. Meanwhile Leia either dies or is decommissioned, forcing Rey and Poe to step up as leaders respectively.

But plot twist, Kylo can’t reawaken Vader because Vader was redeemed. We learn it was really Palpatine’s spirit guiding him here, and now Sheev is back. He uses Kylo as a pawn while reawakening his secret fleet to kill the last jedi.

Rey and Kylo fight, and Rey convinces Kylo to join the light side and kill Palpatine. The two then team up and have an intense force duel before Palpatine is defeated for good.

In the aftermath, Rey and Ben overlook a new order of Jedi who will protect the galaxy in a reorganized republic.

Next week I’ll critique how I did!

Luke wakes up in bed back on Tatooine with his Aunt, Uncle, Ben Kenobi, and the droids standing around him. Luke, bewildered, is like “it was…so real…there was a dark lord…a muppet…and you were there, and you, and…”

I would Love that! 😎

Slight problem, Vader wasn’t buried on the Death Star and Kylo would probably have already found Vader’s remains on Endor to get the mask.

Yeah, I’m banking on the assumption Kylo doesn’t know all that went down.

In new canon wasn’t Luke/Leia’s heritage some major scandal? So stuff like Vader’s redemption may not be known.

So glad you all bumped this thread back up in time for release week! OutbandFlight you make a great case and I mostly buy it, I guess it all depends on whether the movie makes complete sense that your theory should, but my only question is what about Snoke? To wrap the bow tighter maybe Kylo finds the macguffin in his personal effects? I personally would prefer that lead down a general Sith trail than any real connection between Snoke and Palpatine, who is more waiting to be summoned/reawakened like a vampire.

Here’s one, in the final cut they use an alternate take for “They fly now!”
(bonus points if it’s the same in the theatrical but on streaming and physical it’s changed).

TROS won’t just be the greatest SW which has been made and ever will be made, but the greatest film PERIOD. It will fix all the flaws in TLJ, TFA, the PT, the OT, and the whole of cinema since 1874. It will unite the SW fanbase and all of humanity, ushering in a utopian epoch which will end only once the last star has gone cold.

Film ends with the victorious Emperor Palpatine, now the only conscious being in existence, sending dozens of star destroyers into a nearby star for fun.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Movie ends with Kylo Ren going back in time to a few decades before the Phantom Menace, and running for Senator under the pseudonym “Sheev Palpatine”.

Rey was accidentally created by Baby Yoda while experimenting with his force powers.
“Macklunkey” is Palpatine’s dying word.
Kylo Ren isn’t real.

Let’s be honest though…this movie is going to have a “Portals” moment. My bet is on that huge cavalry of ships seen in the trailer.
