What is THE LAST JEDI’s “Shocking Reveal?”

This month may mark the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, but we’re looking ahead to December’s premiere of The Last Jedi, the eighth episode in the ever-expanding saga. As if the first trailer didn’t already have us excited for Episode VIII, a new The Last Jedi ad out of Japan is reportedly hyping up the biggest reveal yet. Today’s Nerdist News is searching your feelings, you know it to be true!

There are potential spoilers ahead for The Last Jedi! For now, it’s all rumors and speculation. But if these theories turn out to be right, then you may want to avoid them.

Join host, and the second to last Jedi, Jessica Chobot, as she examines a report from StarWarsNews.net that features a translation from a Japanese Star Wars promotional leaflet that offers this claim: “The most shocking truth in Star Wars history will soon be revealed!”

“The most shocking truth?” Because after The Empire Strikes Back‘s Darth Vader reveal, that’s a pretty high bar. Even the Skywalker twins revelation couldn’t come close to that. So what could The Last Jedi possibly have to compete with those secrets?

Of course, the obvious answer is the truth about Rey’s parents…but perhaps that’s a little too obvious. For a secret that could shake the Star Wars universe to its core, it would have to be along the lines of Luke Skywalker secretly running the First Order, or something completely unforeseen about Supreme Leader Snoke. It’s entirely possible that the team at Lucasfilm have planned a particularly juicy secret to expose, and we’re going to enjoy speculating about it for the next seven months.

What do you think will be the shocking reveal from The Last Jedi? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
