Despite the tons of details we already know, Star Wars: The Last Jedi still has a lot of mystery going for it. We don’t know the parentage of our lead heroine, the motives of one of our villains, the basic identity of the other main villain, or where the filmmakers plan to take the story.

Details are still slim pickings, but in a new edition of Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know, there are a few key details that we’ve taken away.

Rey: This one seems kind of obvious in retrospect, but it was never really established that Rey traveled to Ahch-To to train with Luke — and yet we all assumed (accurately) that she would be training with him. Well, that assumption is wrong, and she was really planning on getting him to go back to the Resistance. Again, very obvious, but at least her motives are ironed out.

Luke: In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was alluded to the fact that he was trying to rebuild the Jedi, only to be betrayed by Kylo Ren. This is confirmed in this, and also added that he was rumored to be in search of the first Jedi Temple. We have no idea if he gave up that search, or if it’s somewhere on Ahch-To.

Kylo Ren: His allegiances have always been shaky. Even following his murder of Han Solo, no one was certain whether or not he truly was bound for the Dark Side, and some hoped he may eventually turn. However, this news doesn’t look good. Apparently his loss to Rey in The Force Awakens embarrassed him, and now he’s on a mission to prove his worth to both himself and Snoke. He also “seeks revenge” on anyone and everyone responsible for the destruction of Starkiller Base.

Snoke: Not a whole lot is known about Snoke still, but this magazine revealed that he had the power of telepathy, among his other more standard Force abilities.

Praetorian Guards: We’ve seen plenty of images of these guys in the past, and despite the rumors, they’ve been cofirmed to be human, not robots.

    If Luke goes over to the dark side it pretty much negates everything that happened in the first seven movies.

      Luke has personally witnessed the immortality gained through the Light Side. He’s also the only person to save someone from the Dark Side. I don’t see how he would forget these things.

      He’s also not wrong when he said the Jedi needed to die in the trailer. (Assuming that’s how the sentence rolls in the film.) A big part of the films has been discovering the Jedi were wrong in their beliefs and understandings of the Force.

      They basically said fear is wrong and makes you evil, which of course made Anakin afraid of being afraid. His response to the natural emotion of fear was to hide it and eventually turn to the one person who could listen to his fears and help deal with them, Palpatine.

        The Luke being-evil marketing thing is just that. He’s tired and pissed but he’s not darkside. “The jedi need to end” = the force/jedi need to evolve into something else that doesn’t cause these imbalances and war.

        • Jeremy Alexander

          Exactly, I looked at it as him saying that the Jedi were as much to blame for the state of things as the Sith, and just like the Sith order died, so must the Jedi to make way for a new vision of what the force is.

    • Mark Alan Thomas

      “Episode VII” negates everything that happened in the first six movies. The teat is being milked, and it will be milked until the cow is dead. Then they’ll rinse and repeat.

    • Jeremy Alexander

      First of all, Luke isn’t going over to the dark side because he wants to rid the galaxy of his stupid Jedi religion. All religion should be purged. Second it wouldn’t negate anything if it were true. That’s like saying Vader turning evil negated the character from E1 and E2. No it didn’t, it’s called character development. I’m not the same person I was at 10, 20, or even 30. In some ways I’m a better person and in some ways I’m not as nice about many things because I’ve changed. That doesn’t negate who I was at those ages, it just means my mind has changed and evolved over time. Fuck it anyway and fuck you for making me reference those shitty god damned prequels.

  • Psychotic Bitch With a Knife

    They should do a Kylo Ren origin film.

    • Jeremy Alexander

      Please god, make it stop. No more fucking prequels.

  • Danny B

    I see Luke being so ‘good’ that he just wants total peace for everyone and so the Jedi being dead would stop all the ‘good vs evil’ etc
    Like organised religion is responsible for almost all the ‘evil’ here on earth (not GOD, I wouldn’t want to upset people who think I meant he/her/it was responsible)
    The Jedi v Sith has been at the centre of all the shit in that galaxy far far away

    Since when did everyone care so much about character development or motivation in Star Wars characters? Did anyone actually watch the original films? What did you know about the Emperor, his rise, his history or his motivations after seeing him for maybe 10 minutes in 3 films? Nada. Zip. Fucking Zero. How about Vader? We knew he used to be good, then he was seduced by the emperor to the dark side and somehow he had two kids he didn’t know about. Who was the mother, how did he not know he had kids, how did he find out about Luke, but not Leia between e4 and 5, why did he fall to the dark side, what were the clone wars? Nobody knew and nobody cared, but now we need a 2 hour film on every single fucking characters psychological profile? No thanks. I want new stories, new characters, new planets, and new adventures, not fucking history lessons for a made up fictional IP.
