It’s barely been a month since Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters, and we’re already looking 11 months into the future at Star Wars: Episode VIII. This year may be the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, but we still haven’t seen any footage from the next sequel or even learned its real title. However, we do have a lot of wild rumors about what we might see in the middle installment of the new Star Wars trilogy, and today’s Nerdist News is breaking it all down.
Before you go any further or watch the accompanying video, you should know that there are potential spoilers ahead for Episode VIII. You’ve been warned!
Join host and the only known survivor of the Battle of Scarif, Jessica Chobot, as she tells us about Kylo Ren’s very own custom Tie-Fighter; which he may use to lead a new fleet of Tie-Bombers into battle. These rumors originated at the usually reliable Making Star Wars, which is also reporting that Kylo Ren is going to take his Darth Vader fandom to the next level by adding a cape to his outfit, including the Vader chain that holds it up.
But what’s happening with Rey and Luke on Ahch-To? Would you believe intelligent birds with sharp teeth and a sea monster? That’s right, we said “sea monster.” And one of our beloved heroes may have to take it on solo. We swear that isn’t a pun!
