Which character is related to which character? Who might be deceiving whom? Where do the loyalties of that droid lie? Where the hell is Luke? These speculative questions and debates about what we can expect from The Force Awakens have been a huge part of the fun during this newest journey in the Star Wars universe. Whereas we knew where we were going in the prequels, it was just a matter of how we got there, with this sequel trilogy we don’t have any idea where it is headed, which is why it’s so enjoyable trying to guess.
This latest fan-cut trailer, made by YouTube user Mike V., attempts to place every clip we have from the movie in sequential order. It is a great tool to support, or destroy, our many and varied theories about what we will get from this movie.
There is certainly a great deal of logic behind the decisions made here, beginning with the Battle of Jakku (an explosive way to set everything in motion), and ending (we think) with that brief shot of the great mystery man we’re all so concerned about, Luke Skywalker.
What really stands out is just how much chasing of Rey there seems to be. No one is going to give me an award for saying she is important, but does she know how important she is? Or why?
Honestly, this is an easy rabbit hole of speculation to lose yourself in, but man is it fun. We are all eagerly awaiting December 18, but until then we can enjoy the experience of anticipation.
Oh, and Rey and Kylo Ren are siblings. Mark it.
