I am a huge Star Wars Fan! And by fan I mean that I’m a fan of the original Star Wars Trilogy with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher… and to add on to it… I consider the movie Fanboys canon in the Star Wars universe!
Anyway, after viewing the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailers and teasers multiple times, I’ve been trying to piece together all the easter eggs hidden in each one… and I think I may have the plot down for the movie. Keep in mind that this is just a fan theory and should be treated as such, but if this theory proves to be right, than you can thank me for spoiling it for you! So readers be warned... huge spoilers ahead!
In the first teaser we hear a Supreme Leader Snoke’s voice briefly talking about the Force and “The Dark side and the Light...” We see Finn wake up in a desert wearing a Stormtrooper suit. Rey riding on what appears to be part of a Pod Racing Engine. Rebels and Stormtroopers about to go to war with each other. The new Sith named Kylo Ren showing off his Crossguard Lightsaber. The Millennium Falcon fighting X-Fighters with a new Satellite Dish. And hearing Luke’s Lightsaber turn on at the end.
In the second teaser we hear Luke’s young voice from Return of the Jedi tell as that “The Force is strong in [his] family.” But what you don’t realize is that if you listen closely, his phrase is being echoed by a deeper voice. It may be the older Luke’s voice mimicking the younger, but what’s interesting is that when Luke says, “...You have that power too...”, there is no echo. Now why is that I wonder?
The quote is:
“The Force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it.”
Now the reason I think it echoes is because someone else is saying it. And that someone, I think is Kylo Ren! Now hear me out, we learn in the Star Wars books that after the Dark Side was defeated that Han and Leia have twins, a boy and a girl. What if those twins are Kylo Ren and Rey? This would be an interesting plot twist that would kind of mirror the plot twist that Darth Vader was Luke’s father.
The other interesting thing is that while Luke is monologuing, we not only Luke’s robotic right hand placed on R2-D2, but we also see someone hand(who I’m guessing is Rey) a girl Luke’s old Lightsaber before he got his hand cut off by Darth Vader. Now the reason this is interesting is because we learn obviously from The Empire Strikes Back that Luke lost his Lightsaber in the midst of that cloud city. What if later on, that same Lightsaber was picked up and used for trading stuff for food or by some other means until it finally lands on a planet that Rey happens to be on(and I’ll get to that later).
Still sticking with the same trailer we have Han and Chewie(armed with laser crossbow mind you) standing there with Han saying, “Chewie, we’re home.” My two questions about this small scene is why is Chewie holding a crossbow and why did Han say that at the end? My theory is that the Millennium Falcon was stolen and Han and Chewie took it back. If you remember from Return of the Jedi the Millennium Falcon wasn’t Han’s to begin with, it was Lando’s(and I’ll get to him later). Lando was the last to ride the Millennium Falcon. Even Han said the he was afraid that he wasn’t going to see his ship again. What if the reason we aren’t going to see Lando in this movie is because Lando was mistakenly killed by Mandalorians who thought that Han Solo was piloting the ship. If that be true, then I think this is what will happen in the movie that leads to Han saying, “Chewie, we’re home.”
When Han hears that Lando has been kidnapped or even possibly killed, he tries to rescue him, but it is too late. Lando is killed and Han is faced with the enemy who killed him and it is… what for it… Boba Fett!
Now I know what you thinking… “But… he’s dead… We heard the Sarlacc swallow him whole!” Well… There’s rumors that he was in the new trailer standing along side with Kylo Ren. I’m betting that the Sarlacc only swallowed Boba Fett’s jetpack, thus making it easier for Boba Fett to escape.
I mean he did have that string-like thing that he wrapped Luke with. He could’ve used that to attach himself to one of the nearby crafts to pull him out of that mess. And this would be perfect for Boba Fett to seek revenge on Han Solo for ruining his chance in capturing Luke.
Anyway, the reason Han is saying, “Chewie, we’re home.” is because he hijacked the Millennium Falcon that was piloted by Mandalorians. Which is also why Chewie is armed and even aiming his crossbow at someone. Once they have the ship in their possession they are being chased by TIE Fighters, which also explains that chase scene in the trailers.
In the recent trailer, we’re given more details of what’s going on in the movie. Rey is asked by Maz Kanata who she is. Rey responds by saying that she is “...no one.” If Rey is Han and Leia’s daughter, then what if the story behind Rey in the movie is that she was forced to be hidden from her parents at an early age because a new type of evil was awakening and Leia wanted to protect her kids Rey and Kylo. So she had Rey be on a desert planet being a "no one" and Kylo be in exile with Luke so that Luke can teach him how to destroy the Sith with the Force. Little do we know, over the years Luke was not only learning more about the Force, but also about The Dark Side. In so doing, it opened a Pandora Box for the Dark Side to sneak in and cloud Luke’s thoughts and eventually consume him! Luke’s dark teachings are then received by Kylo. They both bring back the Sith. Luke being The Master because the last remaining Sith before him was The Emperor and his father Darth Vader… unless Darth Maul Comes back with Robotic legs(crossing fingers)! But seriously, if all the Sith died on that ship and according to Yoda, Luke was the last Jedi after he died, that can only mean one thing. He can go both ways. He can be a Jedi or a Sith, but he realizes that the Force needs to be balanced and the only way to do that is by turning to The Dark Side.
I mean why else would Luke keep his father’s helmet as a shrine? An even better question, why did Kylo Ren say, “Nothing will stand in our way… I will finish what you started!” He said this because he is taken on his grandfather’s work. And to make sure that no one will get in his way, he fashions up a Crossguard Lightsaber so that his hand doesn’t get cut off like Luke’s.
In short Luke is the real baddie behind the movie. Mark Hamill even pitched the idea to Lucas, but they decided to go a different direction as it is hinted in the video below:
Remember when I said that I was going to go back to Lando and Rey? Well here is where it ties together. This theory is regarding Finn. There have been rumors suggesting that he is a Skywalker descendent, and I can buy that, and here's why:
I think once Han and Leia had the twins Leia thought it would be best to separate Rey and Kylo. Han didn't like this idea and they both got a divorce because of that. After they went their separate ways, Han went back to doing what he did best in being a space merchant and Leia remarried. And the man she got married to was Lando and they had a son and that son was Finn! This makes sense to me, because I read up somewhere that Lando is actually a clone.
This kind of explains why Finn was dressed as a Stormtrooper in the trailers. I'm betting that the reason Finn is dressed as a Stormtrooper is because he finds out that his father, Lando, is in trouble with the Mandalorians and he disguises himself to try to save Lando, but fails and is caught up in the mess with Rey and Han which explains why they're all together in the end where Han tells them that everything about the Jedi and the Dark Side is true! “All of it!”
Now here's my question. Is my theory true… “All of it!”
