Might Darth Vader’s Citadel on Mustafar make a return to the large display screen in Star Wars: The Final Jedi? That is the gist of the newest rumor, and it is one which has been introduced up very often within the wake of Rogue One’s launch in theaters this previous December. The citadel is believed to be the one factor that connects Star Wars eight and the primary anthology film collectively. Right this moment, we could have a greater understanding of its significance not solely to the film, but in addition to Kylo Ren’s workforce of Jedi Assassins generally known as the Knights of Ren.
The Knights of Ren stay an entire thriller. Whereas they had been launched in The Drive Awakens, not a lot was stated about them. And their title is rarely spoken on display screen. If it weren’t for J.J. Abrams speaking concerning the Knights within the press main as much as The Drive Awakens launch in theaters over a 12 months in the past, we could not even know who they’re. Star Wars: The Final Jedi is now lower than a 12 months out, and it appears a few of the thriller is being cracked.
There have been loads of fan theories main as much as this minute. And a few of that falls according to what we’re listening to at present. And the Knights of Ren origins will assist peel the layers again on Kylo Ren‘s personal backstory. It has lengthy been recognized that The Drive Awakens trilogy might be as a lot about Rey’s path to turning into a hero (or presumably villain) as it’s going to inform the unlikely story of Ben Organa (some say Solo, however he is royalty and would have taken his mom’s Maiden title not that of a scoundrel like Han Solo).
On the Blu-ray commentary that was just lately launched with the Star Wars: The Drive Awakens particular version, J.J. Abrams revealed that almost all, if not all, of Kylo Ren’s path to the darkish facet and potential redemption is totally laid out. Most of Kylo’s historical past wasn’t revealed within the first new Star Wars film in over thirty years in order that it might be instructed in The Final Jedi, which is among the causes the lettering within the just lately revealed title card is crimson.
These new plot particulars come from a considerably trusted Youtube supply who trades in Star Wars eight rumors. Earlier than the New 12 months, Mike Zeroh, who claims to have insider data from the set, revealed that Rey might be dropping her hand very like Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Again. He now claims that there might be an important flashback to a citadel within the eighth Skywalker saga chapter. And lots of are speculating that this might be Darth Vader’s citadel from Rogue One.
The Final Jedi might be flashback heavy, one thing we have heard earlier than. Earlier studies declare Luke will channel the power from what is called a ‘power rock’ to indicate Rey the historical past of how he misplaced Kylo Ren to the Darkish Facet, in order that she higher understands the trail Ben Organa was set on. The heavy emphases right here shouldn’t be solely on Ben however Luke’s fallen Jedi pupils. Skywalker’s misplaced college students (i.e. Padawans) are those that make up the dreaded Knights of Ren.
Sensing misery of their Grasp, Kylo Ren is ready to recruit this gang from Luke’s Jedi temple and kind a harmful gang of intergalactic assassins. They usually observe Ren’s darkish trigger to complete what Darth Vader began, no matter that could be. The Final Jedi may have a flashback that exhibits the Knights of Ren origin story in full. And it’s this scene that entails the citadel. This identical citadel is claimed to be first revealed in Rey’s The Drive Awakens flashback, it is simply that viewers do not know what they’re but. It comes when she witnesses the Knights of Ren slaughtering a mysterious clan. The backdrop the place we first see Luke Skywalker place his hand on R2-D2 in The Drive Awakens might positively be Darth Vader’s residence world of Mustafar. Which now makes extra sense.
As many assumed, the citadel scene in The Drive Awakens is a imaginative and prescient of Kylo Ren killing off the final of Luke’s college students. Star Wars Story Group chief Pablo Hidalgo really stated some time again that this isn’t the case. One Twitter consumer requested, ‘The [Force Awakens] script says Kylo kill a warrior within the flashback. Is that scene performs in Luke Academy, or elsewhere?’ Hidalgo answered with this, ‘Now that the script’s out, It is elsewhere. Manufacturing recognized that warrior as ‘clan chief’.’ It has been speculated that these cannot be Luke’s college students who’re killed, as a result of the group that the Knights slaughter in The Drive Awakens look to outdated to be Jedi Padawan.
So, that reply continues to be up within the air. Who did Kylo and his Knights kill within the Drive Awakens flashback? The reply might be unveiled in The Final Jedi. And maybe it is the reply to who, what and why there’s a ‘Final Jedi’. What Zeroh needs to clarify is that the citadel is certainly noticed someplace on this scene.
In the end, it’s believed that Kylo Ren and his Knights have infiltrated and brought over Darth Vader’s outdated citadel, which begs the query, does it rain on Mustafar? With the flashback scene so essential in organising Rey’s story in The Drive Awakens, the concept there might be extra ‘Forcebacks’ as they’re typically referred to as would not seem to be an unlikely factor. Neither does making the Knights of Ren be Luke’s fallen Padawan, whom Luke Skywalker is rumored to battle in an epic duel to their demise in The Final Jedi.
