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.

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!

    Already with the new AT-AT type vehicles fighting on salt flats and a “Mega” Star Destroyer. We’re too close to Empire Strikes Back already. I gave a lot of slack to the “echoes” or “references” (euphemisms) in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But you don’t fool me twice, if Disney retreads again I will be right with the most angry of fanboys. What’s next? Tabba The Hutt knocks of Leia in the beginning of Episode 9? Mon Butterflyna arranges an attack on Death Star 3? Where does it end?

      Is that Jabba’s sister? Tab baths Hutt

      Right on. And that red “sand” we see being kicked up in the trailer? That’s a by-product of the Bannerama Gas Mines. The whole operation is being managed from a floating city they call Mist Town. Now here’s what I heard happens in this setting during VIII: ***minor spoiler**** A big chase occurs through Mist Town and concludes with Finn be captured and enclosed in Siliconian. We’ve seen a teensy-bit of this scene already in the trailers. Finn laying underneath a plastic shield? That shield melts onto his body to complete the Siliconian process.

    It’s called The Supremacy and it’s Snokes Mega-class Star Destroyer. Do the people at LRM even know what Google is?
