At the moment there is a lot of speculation going on about the fate and future of our beloved Star Wars characters. Whether it be Han Solo's demise in The Force Awakens or if Luke Skywalker has turned to the Dark Side, there is so much speculation to swim through and I believe one of our theories just got confirmed.

An advertisement from Duracell was recently released to show off what their tiny batteries (and a lightsaber) can do for a child's imagination. Judging from the trailer, they can do an awful lot. It looks awesome and I can only wish that the Force Awakens was a part of my childhood.

The scene depicts your average family of four on a white Christmas morning after unboxing their new (sure to be favorite) Star Wars toys. It starts off with R2D2 and C3P0's new look in Episode 7 as they dissuade the boy from saving his sister from the First Order.

As the commercial goes on, we witness the son battling against new First Order troops down the house's hallways until he is led outside. There we see new Firetroopers, AT-ATs, a snow-traversing BB-8, and several classic spaceships.

The sister dons Rey's outfit, but the significant part is that the little girl is a Jedi! She uses the Force to blow enemies back while using her lightsaber to deflect enemy shots.

Yes, this could be one massive coincidence, sure, but it wouldn't surprise me if Rey turns out to be the one with the talent over the Force. I feel like this advertisement is really hinting at something big.

What do you guys think? Let me know!
