There’s a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens fan-theory swirling around the galaxy this week, and the Force is strong with this one. Could one of the most beloved characters from the original franchise be heading back to the big screen alongside Han Solo, Leia, Chewie, and Luke Skywalker? Looking at that list of heroes who are near and dear to our hearts, you may be wondering to yourself, “Who the heck else is left?!” And by this point in the article, you’ve probably thought too long and now you definitely already think you know who it is, even though maybe you didn’t want to think about it, because spoilers. But… is your hunch correct? Is it Jar Jar Binks? Or Boss Nass? Just kidding, it’s Lobot. Still kidding! The theory is pretty spoileriffic (if it turns out to be true), so if you’re trying to head into the new J.J. Abrams movie clean, you might want to spend the next 4 minutes watching one of last week’s Nerdist News episodes instead.
Thanks for watching today’s show! Check out an epic Metroid fan film from our friends at Rainfall Films, which features our very own Jessica Chobot as Metroid-heroine Samus Aran! Let us know in the comments if you think this new The Force Awakens fan theory will come to be true, or if it’s just a disturbance in the Force.
