Production on Star Wars: Episode VIII has already long started. Will this movie see the end of everybody’s favorite farmer from Tatooine? Please bear in mind that there will be huge spoilers for The Force Awakens ahead although they can hardly still be considered spoilers since the movie is already like half-a-year-old.
In December of 2015, Disney broke many people’s hearts by killing off Ol’ Han Solo. So could episode 8 be the end of yet another original cast member? Here is why I would think that: Star Wars is a saga telling the story of one family… the Skywalkers. The Original Trilogy told the story of Luke Skywalker, the Prequel Trilogy told the story of Anakin Skywalker and the Sequel Trilogy could be telling the story of Leia… Organa… Solo… Skywalker. Okay, fine! Maybe she isn’t 100% a Skywalker anymore, but still!
So, let’s just presume that this is exactly what will happen, but there is still one piece of the puzzle missing. How will Luke die? Here’s what I think: Darth Vader’s Force ghost will kill him. Through his burnt helmet, Kylo Ren will start communicating with Anakin’s Force ghost, and he will convince him to kill Luke. After his does this, Anakin will feel extremely ashamed and will probably lock himself in a cave or something. Or maybe Luke will just be killed by Snoke in a 1v1 battle.
This would allow us to explore Leia’s character a bit more, especially since her role in The Force Awakens was pretty much just a cameo. If this happened, it would just be up to Leia, Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron, Chewie, R2-D2, C3P-0 and BB-8 to stop the First Order.
So, just to clarify. I don’t actually think this is definitely what will happen. Neither is this what I want to happen. I trust LucasFilm to make a damn good movie. This post is just a fun little theory I came up with.
