Rumors are hard to come by and so when they arrive it’s like getting a piece of delightful candy that’s only available every once in a while. So, on that note, a new rumor has arrived that is so mind-blowing that I couldn’t help but want to share it with you all. Of course, you definitely want to take this with a grain of salt because it’s probably invalid. But if it isn’t…well, this movie is going to be very interesting.

So, here’s the rumor.

You remember a little over two months ago when it was announced that Matt Smith (Doctor WhoThe Crown) was joining Episode IX in an important but undisclosed role? Well, rumors surrounding his mysterious character are starting to circle and they are juicy indeed.

Is This Rumor for ‘Episode IX’ Worrying or Exciting?

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.

Should Luke Skywalker Appear in ‘Episode IX’ As a Physical Ghost or an Apparition?

 The Last Jedi changed a LOT of things and one of those things was the way Jedi ghosts are perceived and can be used in these films. Yoda had a brief appearance in The Last Jedi as he had a chat with his one-time pupil Luke Skywalker to snap him out of his misery. But it wasn’t Yoda’s sudden arrival that was impressive. It was the fact that Yoda, as a ghost, was able to summon lightning and to knock Luke in the forehead with his stick. Up until The Last Jedi, it seemed that ghosts were only able to interact with people through talking. It was never apparent that they could affect the outside world or the people in that world which could prove very interesting in Episode IX.

As we all know, Luke became one with the Force at the end of The Last Jedi which left fans wondering if he would return for Episode IX. Well, he is and that can mean a wide possibility of things.

I Didn’t Know It But Rey Has Already Gone to the Dark Side Once

One of the biggest aspects to a Jedi’s story in a Star Wars film is their struggle of resisting the temptation toward the dark side. Anakin tried to resist the pull of the dark side for two movies straight but ultimately failed. And Luke also was tempted by the dark side of the Force on numerous occasions but was able to suppress those urges. And now there’s Rey.

She’s the galaxy’s next hope of defeating Kylo Ren and the First Order but to do that she must remain, well, good. That seems easy right? Wrong. Rey isn’t your typical Jedi. She doesn’t exactly follow the Jedi “code” and she kind of just wings it rather than basing her decisions off of what the Jedi believe is right. Yeah, she fights with the good guys but she’s much more prone to turn to the dark side than you might expect. In fact, she already has turned to the dark side and it was right beneath our noses. Let me tell you how.

If Finn Was a Jedi

One of the coolest things about being a Star Wars fan is theorizing the movies. Since The Force Awakens there have been a LOT of theories to pore over and enjoy but one of the theories that I have always been the most interested in is whether Finn was force-sensitive or not. If you may recall, I wrote a post about his possibility of being Force sensitive earlier this year and I’m still hoping that he does end up being a tad bit Force-sensitive in Episode IX.

And my sister shares my same imagination toward Finn. In fact, she has drawn a certain piece of fan art that imagines Finn as a Jedi and it turned out to be so absolutely incredible I wanted to share it with all of you. Here it is.

Jedi Knight Finn

Isn’t. This. Amazing?! Not only is it a beautiful drawing but it looks nearly identical to the actual John Boyega!

I’ve always imagined Finn as a Jedi but to see what it could possibly look like is even more fantastic. Who knows? Maybe it’ll become true and we’ll get to see him use the Force in an exciting way in Episode IX. Maybe he’ll turn out to be like Leia. She had the Force but she didn’t exactly become a Jedi. She was able to use the power for intuition and even, in dire circumstances, to save herself from death but she was never a full-blown Jedi knight. Maybe Finn’s Force-sensitivity will be on the same level.

Whatever the case, this painting is awesome and I’ve loved sharing it with you all.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.

Should Poe Have a Love Interest in ‘Episode IX’?

When you think of Star Wars romance may not be the first thing that comes to mind but it’s, surprisingly, one of the franchise’s greatest aspects. The reason why the original trilogy was such a well-rounded trio of movies is because every aspect of those films were perfect, especially the romantic side of things. Han and Leia’s love story is, in my opinion, the greatest romance in science-fiction movies and it helped make The Empire Strikes Back easily one of the best (or best) Star Wars films ever made.

Since then the aspect of romance in this franchise has been a little sub par. The love story between Anakin and Padme was straight down icky for a couple of reasons. One; Padme knew Anakin when he was a boy and she was a teenager so to think that she fell in love with him when he grew up is kind of weird. And two; their chemistry was so off watching them together just didn’t look right. You could tell Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman were acting like they liked each other and that’s bad.

This Description of ‘Episode IX’ from Oscar Isaac Sounds Amazing

Episode IX is of course on top secret mode until it premieres next year in movie theaters around the world but that doesn’t mean the actors aren’t talking about it. As Star Wars star, Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) goes through publicity for his latest movie, Operation Finale, questions of Episode IX are sure to arise and this time he had a little bit to tell us. Here is what he said.

“It is a war movie. I mean, above and beyond, it is a movie about warriors.”

This next section is about his standing with his character, the Resistance leader, Poe Dameron.

“You want to get people [to question him] as opposed to have some sort of easy answer of like, ‘Yeah, yeah, he did the right thing. He was a hero.’ What’s the cost of this stuff?”

And this next section is easily the most interesting part.

“[The Resistance] are guerrilla fighters, adhering closer to something like the Revolutionary War fighters or even the guerrillas in Cuba with Che and Fidel and all these guys living in the mountains, coming down to do some attacks, and going back and trying to hide from the ’empire’ of the United States. It’s that kind of ragged at this point. 

You hear about stories with [George] Washington as a general, where lots of people died based on their orders, but that is part of leadership and that push-and-pull in the fight for figuring out what’s the way to move forward.”
