Who Hits the Snooze Button and Is Late to Work.

Y'know, one of the things that makes this movie look so much better is Mark Hamill. Not necessarily Luke, because the writers were so in awe of the character they couldn't let him in The Force Awaken

You're all wrong. The Porg is clearly in charge of the Millennium Falcon. Just look at him barking orders at Chewbacca.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YrA8ApA9PI   Chewbacca: The cavern is coll

I like contradictory stuff. I like to read alot of stuff and then try to figure out what I think will happen. I don't want to know for a fact what will happen though.

I like watching so called "insider" youtubers who have asinine / insane theories (like Mike Zeroh). It will be hilarious to see the back-peddling after TLJ is released.

I think I need to get off the grid for the next week until I see it.

I am a frequenter of the Star Wars Leaks subreddit. They are surprisingly respectful, with regards to spoilers in titles... it's pretty easy to avoid "big stuff" if you want to. It's been helpful that basically nothing big leaked beforehand - unlike Force Awakens. But when the Visual Dictionary leaked last week I had to extricate myself. Trying to go in relatively blind.

Mike Zeroh! That guy is a weirdo. Awkward as hell. His content is a joke too.

I almost managed to remain spoiler free, but I glimpsed a page of audience reviews and saw some things that I wish I hadn't seen, including some things that I might be disappointed about if they are true. Oops.

 

(I'll be reading the opening crawl at 1230 UTC tomorrow)

 

I'm not going to start the "I've seen The Last Jedi" thread. I did that for R1; it's somebody else's turn.

What I WANT is probably an entire thread...

 

But based on what the trailers have shown, I predict TLJ will be something this:

 

Story starts right after TFA. The Resistance is evacuating their base now that it's location is known, mobilizing their small fleet. Finn is loaded up in a medpod. The First Order arrives, intercepting them, and we get an early space battle. This is where Poe blows **** up. Kylo leads the attack, and is tempted to kill Leia, but can't pull the trigger, allowing her to escape-- but the resistance is scattered.

 

On Ach-to, Rey meets Luke, he's reticent and nervous, but sees she's with R2 and Chewie. Rey tries to convince Luke to help her, but he is too nervous to help anyone become more powerful after what Kylo did. This memory haunts him so much, that Rey "sees" it (so we do too, like her vision before).

 

For the first half of act two we bounce between the split up heroes:

 

Leia and Poe as they try to get the Resistance gathered back up to force. I think Leia getting the Republic to join their cause, or other groups/governments-- something political to build a movement to stop the first order.

 

Finn and the new girl whose name I forget end up on the casino planet, which is stupidly NOT run by Lando, but some other middle-of-the-rogue (see what I did there) type character. They get word of what Leia is doing and somehow discover that the First Order is already onto the plan.

 

Rey trains with Luke once she convinces him it needs to happen. Luke's quest to find answers isn't over, and there is some Jedi treasure he wants to find. The training is ultimately broken up when Kylo arrives having learned Luke's location from either interrogating somebody, or sifting through whatever he could find from the scattered resistance forces. Luke has a chance to kill Kylo, but can't. He, Rey, and Chewie escape in the Falcon.

 

The back half of act two finds Finn infiltrating the First Order (with Benicio Del Toro's help) to stop them from doing further damage to Leia/the Resistance. He ultimately faces off against Phasma as they complete their mission.

 

Leia takes a back seat as we follow Poe on a mission to Crait, which leads to the Resistance planning to base themselves there.

 

Rey and Luke discover whatever it is he was looking for, maybe the old book/journal and it gives them answers, but not the kind they want. Luke decides SOMETHING NEEDS TO HAPPEN, and while it is noble and right, it will have some sort of fallout that Rey has trouble accepting.

 

The storylines converge in the third act with the final attack on Crait. Poe and Finn leads the attack, Leia and Luke are able to briefly re-united before Kylo manages to infiltrate the base and capture Luke. Rey seemingly betrays them all and joins Kylo, in his exit, Kylo has another chance to kill Leia, and this time acts on it-- and her fate is left a mystery.

 

As the battle rages and the tides turn, Snoke tries to find out why Rey is so powerful, and Luke seems broken and removed... until he isn't. Rey had no intention of flipping, and she and Kylo face off again.

 

Luke, having set the trap up, goes against Snoke and ultimately kills him-- but is still unable to stop Kylo. Kylo has grown in power, and this time, he bests Rey, feeling pissed and betrayed that she duped him.

 

Luke sacrifices himself to save Rey, and in the process the whole ship goes up. Kylo barely escapes with his life. It ends on the surface of Crait with Poe and Finn finding Rey in her escape pod.

I wasn't too far off.

 

I just didn't forsee the middle of the movie actually going nowhere.

Rey manages to get herself into a mess and captured by Snoke. Kylo saves her, killing Snoke. Rey thinks he's turned good but in reality he just wants all the power for himself and was tired of Snoke's abuse. When Rey refuses to join him it infuriates Kylo who, now fueled by the rush of power he got from killing Snoke is even more dangerous than ever.

 

I nailed this!
