Star Wars: The Force Awakens certainly raised a few questions: Who are Rey’s parents? What has Luke Skywalker been doing all these years? How did Kylo Ren fall to the Dark Side? And just who is Supreme Leader Snoke?
We know that some of these will be answered in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Director Rian Johnson has confirmed for instance that Rey’s parentage will be addressed, but he’s also said he won’t delve into Supreme Leader Snoke’s part, and now on the latest episode of The Star Wars Show, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy has warned us not to expect too many answers:
“I think [Rian’s] done an exceptional job of taking these new characters and some of the legacy characters and moving us to this next place,” said Kennedy. “He doesn’t answer all the questions, I will say that up front. But there are certain questions he does answer in a really wonderfully provocative way, and I think there’ll be some surprises that people aren’t expecting.”
Naturally, it is to be expected that Lucasfilm will want to keep some revelations back for Star Wars: Episode IX, but let us know in the comments what answers you’re hoping to get from The Last Jedi…
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
