More from the Empire exclusive on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as a new image has emerged from Empire’s Twitter page. The shot features three spaceships and one massive object looming in the background of the photo. One’s first thought on the image is that the large object is another Death Star. I am inclined to believe otherwise, as I think there is a good chance the gigantic object in the background is the recently revealed mega class Star Destroyer that belongs to Supreme Leader Snoke. You can see the post below.
Here's a new still from The Last Jedi. It's in space, but there seems like a huge object behind them and I swear if this is a Death Star… pic.twitter.com/mVtZ2Kz7Wl

What I assume were intended to be the subjects of the photo, the three spaceships, have taken a backseat to the object in the distance and whatever it is seems to be what is sparking conversations among Star Wars nerds. The potential for yet another iteration of the super weapon has fans very anxious. Do we need another form of the Death Star this time around? Probably not. Now I’m not saying I don’t want to ever see a super weapon in Star Wars again, but I will say we could probably use a break from it, as some form of the weapon has been in every Star Wars movie to date. And judging by the comments on the Twitter post, it appears as most Star Wars fans would agree with me.
Speculation is one of the best things about being a Star Wars fan. Even back before Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, fans would argue and debate on topics that, at the time, they could never really get a definitive answer on. Things such as lightsaber duel match ups and the extent of the use of The Force. While animated shows have filled in some of those blanks, there is still much left to discuss. Now that movies are being made again, the speculation game has changed, and the issues we converse about will actually be answered at some point, which makes it all the more fun.
What do you think the object is? Let us know in the comments down below!
