With anticipation building for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, new plot details have been revealed by an anonymous source to Making Star Wars.
Following initials leaks on what we can expect from the first trailer, this latest set of rumors gives us a clearer view of the state of the galaxy post The Force Awakens. After keeping The First Order’s existence a secret for so long, the loss of the Starkiller Base following the assault on the Republic has brought The Order out from the shadows. Snoke, described as a “maniacal zealot” by the source, is faced with a thawing cold war that is on the precipice of exploding into a multi-front conflict.
“Snoke understands that everything The First Order used to do in secret is no longer an option and a very overt war is on the horizon.
Enter, The Republic and a well organised counter? No, unfortunately, like always The Republic and The Resistance are in disarray struggling to mount any kind of organised defense.
Unfortunately, The Republic has completely collapsed after being attacked in Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Starkiller Base. The galaxy is in complete disarray. The galaxy understands that everyone has to pick a side now. General Organa no longer stands alone in her determination that The First Order is the greatest threat to freedom and democracy in the galaxy and the only choice they have left is to fight.
With Daisy Ridley offering no clues as to who The Last Jedi is, any details of what is to follow still allude us.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters on 15 December 2017 with the first trailer expected on 13 April.
