Rumor: ‘The Last Jedi’ Details Hint at a New Spaceship and What’s Next for Finn
When The Last Jedi hits theaters this December, it’ll be two whole years since we saw Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo Ren, and the rest of the gang from the new trilogy. There’s no telling what kind of trouble they’ll get themselves into this time around, and all we have to go on is a mysterious recently-released official title. But that doesn’t stop the rumor mill from churning right along, and some insiders might have gotten a few new details about a brand-new spaceship and what a certain ex-Stormtrooper will be doing onboard. If you’d like to go into the movie knowing as little as possible, search your feelings and stop reading here.
If not, and you’re still around, we’ve got some deets from the folks over at Making Star Wars, who seem to have the skinny on a new ship design. They’re normally pretty reliable people, but let’s just reiterate that these are still rumors at this point, so grains, salt, y’all know the drill:
In Star Wars: The Last Jedi there is going to be a First Order Super Star Destroyer. However, it isn’t like the ones we saw during the Empire’s era. The First Order Super Star Destroyer is huge, yes, but is just a triangle-shaped wedge. The classic Super Star Destroyer was a wedge with a city built on it in no uncertain terms. This is just a gigantic huge wedge, solid, and dark. I speculate this is the main command ship of the First Order in The Last Jedi. It appears Finn will end up on this ship as part of his mission.
So there you have it. John Boyega’s Finn may be doing some infiltrating aboard the sexy Lamborghini of Star Destroyers, and there’s also a chance that one of these scenes could involve Tom Hardy’s rumored Stormtrooper character, who recognizes Finn from their First Order training days and lets him go under the impression that he’s spying on the Resistance.
Lucasfilm rarely confirms these kinds of rumors, so we won’t know for sure until the movie comes out, naturally. But I’m all for the Star Wars universe introducing some cool new spaceships into the mix.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters December 15.
