The filming for Episode IX is underway and that means leaks and rumors are bound to seep through the cracks. Well, there’s a new rumor going around that has fans divided again over whether they should be excited or worried that J.J Abrams is taking us backward instead of forward.
Before I tell you what the rumor is let me provide you a disclaimer moving forward because this could potentially be a MASSIVE SPOILER for Episode IX. Of course, all rumors have to be taken with a grain of salt but still, we won’t know if it’s false until we watch the movie.
So now that you’ve read the disclaimer this is the leak.
It seems that Supreme Leader Kylo Ren isn’t taking his plan of galactic domination into wildly unseen territory as it is rumored that another superweapon may come into play in this trilogy finale. Here is the official leak from Star Wars leak maistro Mike Zeroh from Youtube.
“…A description of Kylo Ren inside his throne room, assumed to be the headquarters of the First Order, viewing a holgram [sic] form [sic] a device held in his hand. Kylo appears to be examining three large superweapons that are in a cyllindrical [sic] shape with an enormous engine on each side of each superweapon of this ship/weapon, destroying terrain on a planet. The engine burner is coloured red and the blast from the bottom of these three massive weapons is coloued [sic] blue, impacting a surface causing astronomical destruction. Parts of the weapon seem to be under consruction [sic] and not finished.”
It sounds fascinating of course but it also can be a bit worrying. We all know J.J Abrams doesn’t have the most original ideas in the world. The Force Awakens was practically a carbon copy of A New Hope and it seems that J.J Abrams may be taking the same creative direction as he did with Episode VII with this new leak.
Episode IX could very well follow the same model as Return of the Jedi except it’ll contain potential surprise twists that’ll make the film phenomenal despite its derivative origins. Does this leak surprise me? No. I figured J.J Abrams would probably take some of his ideas from other Star Wars movies. Does this leak excite me? Kind of. Yeah, it may not be the most original thing I’ve heard but the concept sounds visually enticing.
Whatever the case an Episode IX leak is always exciting to read and I can’t wait to learn more in the upcoming months.
