YooooooOOOoooOOOooOOO I didn't know he was doing 9 too?
And then: http://www.inquisitr.com/2669539/rian-johnson-will-make-the-weird-star-wars-8-youre-looking-for/
(I really hope that "weird" means "first queer protagonist" and "no one you like will die!" but hey!)
The theory is that lead character Rey (Daisy Ridley) is in reality Anakin Skywalker reincarnated. The Star Wars series has never gone down that path before with any of its universe’s characters or events, and Rian Johnson could be just the type of director to make it work.
I think that'd be cool! But, wasn't Anakin a Force ghost? Or could you do both things? That would be interesting.
What do you all think?
That's nuts, but it would play with Maz Kanata's line from the trailer (cut from the film) "I have lived long enough to see the same eyes in different people. I know
your eyes." (In the movie that conversation is redirected and reshot to be about Finn, but it makes sense, non?)
