I usually do all I can to avoid spoilers, especially for shows and movies I want to see desperately. But part of my job is to report what is buzzing, so some things just can’t be avoided. Like the massive leak of some pivotal Star Wars VIII scenes and how they fit into the overall arc of the story so far. Long story short, some key moments from Star Wars VIII leaked online, and the truth is, these scenes (and ideas posed ins aid scenes) seem SO INSANE that no one knows what to make of it.
Here, read it yourself to see just how insane it sounds. Potential Star Wars VIII Spoilers ahead MAYBE but who knows at this point:
In the scene Luke tells Rey that the Jedi Council became “arrogant” and that they were hiding a “secret,” which led to their demise. The old Jedi master takes Rey’s hand and shows her a glimpse into the past. They see two children playing near a tree on an alien planet. The boy noticed that he had greater strength and intuition when he was closer to this tree. The girl noticed that the tree also made her brother increasingly angry. One day an argument breaks out between the children, and the boy kills the girl. The boy touches the tree and is “transformed,”. He kills his parents and leaves the planet. Meanwhile the girl is revealed to be alive, transformed by the tree as well, using her power to start the first Jedi Order.
So, um, there is an evil tree that makes a kid kill his sister and family and turn evil, and Rey can appparently tap into the power of trees which is why the final fight scene in part 7 took place in and among the woods. God I kinda hope I am kidding you, but per many sites, I may not be. There’s more:
So what is going on here? Your guess is as good as ours. Really curious to see how this (or IF this) plays out on screen.
