Although the eighth installment for the "Star Wars" franchise is not going to launch anytime soon, the upcoming film is already one of the most anticipated movies in Hollywood. Recently, an alleged script from the movie made rounds on the internet. The said script revealed a connection between the Supreme Leader Snoke and Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.
Sources said that Youtube user Star Wars Theory claimed to have come across a leaked script. The Youtuber shared a specific scene involving Luke (Mark Hamill) and Snoke (Andy Serkis). In this particular scene, Luke found the Supreme Leader's lair where he had been holding Rey (Daisy Ridley) captive.
Snoke revealed he only used Rey to lure Luke to come to him. The Supreme Leader then continued to explain his motives. He brought up Luke's father, Anakin Skywalker, who is also known as Darth Vader.
The Jedi Master became confused as to why Snoke brought up his father. More importantly, Luke asked him about how he knew his father. Snoke revealed, "What father does not know his own creation?"
Furthermore, there had been rumors circulating that Kylo Ren is not Han Solo and Leia's son. Some fans argued that the couple never really directly mentioned that Kylo Ren was their child. The fan theory suggested that the couple was referring to a character who has yet to appear in the franchise.
The claims are, without a doubt, interesting. However, there has been no proof to support it. Hence, fans should treat the recent rumors as speculation until proven otherwise.
On the other hand, Adam Driver, who portrays Kylo Ren in the franchise, said a few things about the upcoming film's script. Although the actor didn't spill the details about the film's plot, he did say that the script was great and he even likened it to "The Empire Strikes Back."
He admitted to Collider, "It's similar to how The Empire Strikes Back has a different tone. For that people always go "oooh, it's dark" but I don't know that it necessarily is. It's just different in tone in a way that I think is great and necessary but also very clear."
"Star Wars: Episode VIII" will launch on Dec. 15, 2017.
