In less than 2 months the biggest film in cinema history will drop; this may sound a little premature but there is no doubt about it. Pre-order tickets are selling out fast and cinemas are preparing to open almost 24 hours to show the film. The Force Awakens is going to be BIG!
This in mind I thought I'd have a go at making a few predictions about the new film in the franchise. I've not seen the film and I'm not tight bros with J.J. Abrams so this is not spoilers, just a fan having a go at making a few educated guesses.
My prediction for Rey is that she is Han and Leia's daughter. This is not a massive shock and a
prediction that's been around since the film was announced. The marketing doesn't give Rey or Finn a second name and therefore it can be inferred that this is because this information will give away part of the plot.
2. Luke Skywalker
He isn't in the posters and his face isn't shown in the trailers but it is implied that he is in the trailer placing a hand on R2D2 in trailer 2 and the his voice states "I have it". My prediction is that he is in the film but that it is not till later on that he is revealed and his role clarified. I'm not feeling the predictions that he is a SIth or that he has been disfigured in someway. In an interview during filming he indicated that he was contractually obliged to grow a beard and in the press shots released so far he has a look of Ben Kenobi rather than a SIth lord.
3. The Ewoks are done for
This is probably my wildest prediction but bare with me and let me explain. Kylo Ren or the First Order have to go to Endor; we have seen him holding Darth Vader's mask and this was last seen on Endor when Luke set his father on fire (after he'd already died). Warwick Davies is returning and in some marketing has been referred to as Wicket. Finally in the latest trailer we can see the brand new 'Death Star' being tested, a foresty planet been blown up and the Kylo Ren stating "I will finish what you started," so what better way to get started than to destroy the pesky Ewoks who foiled his plans.
This is a big dark prediction but what a message JJ Abrams would send to the Star Wars universe and the merchandise loving Lucas. It would also be a bit symbol that this franchise is for all those kids that are now adults.
