Till the primary Star Wars eight trailer surfaces, presumably sooner or later over the subsequent few months, all we’ve got is a slew of hypothesis concerning a lot of story factors. Earlier at present, we reported concerning the avian creatures that inhabit the sacred land of Ahch-to with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), which can or might not be creatures often known as “convorees” that had been featured within the animated exhibits Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Now we’ve got yet one more rumor that claims the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) could have a model new TIE Fighter that he’ll be flying, which can be fairly paying homage to his great-grandfather Darth Vader’s ship.
This new report comes from Making Star Wars, which claims that Kylo Ren could have his personal private ship, stated to be a “First Order TIE Superior” ship. This new TIE Fighter ship is alleged to be fairly much like idea artwork that leaked again in July 2015 for a ship recognized then as a “TIE Starfighter.” This ship can also be considerably paying homage to the ship Darth Vader makes use of throughout the iconic Demise Star trench battle in A New Hope.
This report comes just some months after one other rumor surfaced, additionally from Making Star Wars, that claims Kylo Ren will probably be sporting a cape in Star Wars eight, identical to his ancestor Darth Vader. Plainly the similarities between Kylo and Darth will probably be echoed in each the costume and this new TIE Fighter ship, which, like Darth Vader’s ship, featured a fuselage that’s “kind of pill-shaped,” though the wings seem like fairly totally different, if this ship will imitate or match the idea artwork from The Drive Awakens.
One other report could assist validate this rumor, with Hounds Tooth and Dutch siteStar Wars Awakens claiming new LEGO set known as First Order Tie Bombers will debut throughout this 12 months’s Drive Friday occasion. There isn’t any affirmation that LEGO is definitely prepping this set for launch on Drive Friday, believed to be in both September or October, or, even when this set is legit, if this set will embody this rumored Kylo Ren TIE Fighter. Nonetheless, we noticed in Star Wars: The Drive Awakens how a lot Kylo Ren admires Darth Vader, stating clearly that he desires to complete what he began, so it isn’t terribly shocking that he’ll presumably pay homage to his great-grandfather by utilizing an analogous ship as his.
Rian Johnson is directing Star Wars eight from his personal screenplay, which is able to happen immediately after the occasions of Star Wars: The Drive Awakens. Rian Johnson revealed in a current interview that he wished to discover what occurs immediately after the second that Rey (Daisy Ridley) meets the exiled Luke Skywalker on the planet of Ahch-to. Whereas it has been confirmed a number of occasions that the story will choose up immediately the place The Drive Awakens left off, no particulars about what really occurs then have been confirmed. Rumors have run rampant claiming that the story will mirror The Empire Strikes Again, with the Drive-sensitive Rey starting her Jedi coaching with Luke Skywalker, earlier than she is reportedly drawn to assist her mates Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), who’ve been supposedly captured by Kylo Ren in an effort to lure Rey out of hiding. Maybe these particulars will probably be confirmed when the primary trailer for Star Wars: Episode VIII debuts, presumably inside the subsequent few months.
