How will JJ Abrams’ Ep9 “The Rise of Skywalker” bring the saga to an end, explain Rey, fix the mess that was Ep8, incorporate Palpatine, and satisfy fans? Here’s my complete (updated) Skywalker Saga theory in 21 tweets...
1-Palpatine seduced Anakin to the Dark Side with the promise that together they would discover the secret to cheating death. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, they succeeded.
2-They learned it is possible to be resurrected using ancient Jedi and Sith artifacts. Palpatine had entrusted a secret contingency plan to Snoke in case of his death.
3-Snoke was ordered to reconstitute the Empire as the First Order, and to hunt for the relics necessary to resurrect Palpatine. He assembled the Knights of Ren for this task.
4-Luke discovered Snoke’s plan and started his own quest for ancient Jedi relics to stop him. If Snoke succeeded, Luke knew he’d need help to fight a reborn Palpatine.
5-Luke attempted to use the relics & knowledge he found at ancient Jedi temples to resurrect his father, the most powerful Jedi ever, but he failed. Or so he thought.
6-In fact, Luke unknowningly caused the Force to reincarnate Anakin’s spirit as a girl on the other side of the galaxy. Snoke, however, sensed this occurance.
7-Beliving he’d failed, Luke gave up and focused instead on training new Jedi to stop Snoke. He launched his Jedi academy with his young nephew as his star student.
8-Snoke seduced Ben Solo to the Dark Side, took the Jedi artifacts need to resurrect Palpatine, and destroyed Luke’s Jedi academy. Ben became Kylo Ren, the leader of the Knights of Ren.
9-Believing he’d failed to resurrect Anakin, and after losing Ben, Luke became disillusioned with the Jedi, went into hiding, & decided “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
10-Kylo’s desire to “finish what Vader started” meant both destroying the remaining Jedi and serving Palpatine by resurrecting him. Kylo’s mask is one of the Sith relics.
11-In Ep7, When Snoke told Kylo “There has been an awakening” he was referring to Anakin’s resurrection. But they did not know who carried Anakin’s spirit.
12-During thier battle on Starkiller Base, Kylo realized it’s Rey when Anakin’s lightsaber comes to her. He said “It is you.”
13-Rey’s amazing Force abilities, piloting skills, special connection with Anakin’s lightsaber, and her bond with Leia, make sense becasue she IS Anakin/the Chosen One.
14-When Rey appeared on the island, Luke genuinely had no idea who she was. Her power made him afraid. He couldn’t understand why she was drawn to the Dark Side.
15-In the cave, Rey was alone in the mirror because she had no parents. She was born through the Force. Her parents were “no body.” Kylo told her the truth—from a certain point of view.
16-In Ep9, Kylo’s helmet is reforged & the final relic must be recovered from the Emporer’s throne in the debris of the Death Star to bring Palpatine back.
17-The Resistence must reach the relic before Kylo and the Knights of Ren to prevent the return of Palpatine and to save the Galaxy.
18-Through Luke’s force ghost, Rey comes to discover who she really is—the Chosen One who will bring balance to the force & end both the Jedi and Sith.
19-Kylo reaches the final relic and Palpatine is reborn & possesses his body. There is a final epic battle between Anakin (Rey) and Palpatine (Kylo).
20-Palpatine is defeated and the relics destroyed ensuring he never rises again. In the process Ben dies but is set free from the grip of the Dark Side.
21-The Jedi-Sith war that’s lasted for millennia is over. Rey embraces a tearful Leia and hands her the lightsaber which had belonged to her father, brother, and son. THE END.
