We’ve got two rumors this week!

Both about Star Wars: Epsiode VIII. – The first rumor is about where Episode VIII will begin and the second has to do with a fun scene between Finn and a new, female character.

As always, please STOP READING NOW if you would like to avoid any potential Star Wars rumors and/or spoilers!!!!


Okay, here we go…

1.) Star Wars: Episode VIII will start exactly where The Force Awakens ended.

According to CinemaBlend, Episode VIII will begin with Luke and Rey on the island. (Which is precisely where The Force Awakens left off, of course.)

We have seen footage/photos from the filming of Episode VIII, showing Luke and Rey on the island. So this is definitely exciting for fans who are anxious to get answers to allllllll of the questions we were left with at the end of The Force Awakens.

CinemaBlend notes that the scene with Luke and Rey could be flashback. But it seems more likely that Episode VIII will just pick up exactly where the previous film left off.

And, for Star Wars trivia fans, this is a fun piece of news because it’s very different than anything that was done in the original trilogy, or prequel films, where significant time gaps took place between each movie.


2.) In Star Wars: Episode VIII, Kelly Marie Tran’s character and John Boyega’s character, Finn, will have a flirtatious interaction.

As reported by Yibada, in Star Wars: Epsiode VIII, Tran will get her flirt on with Boyega.

According to IWasRaisedToDoOneThing, Tran’s character will flirt with Finn at a bar in the upcoming film.

The rumor further states that the two characters will not form a romantic attachment. But! What makes this rumor extra fun is what is could possibly mean for an actual romantic relationship for Finn. For example, I would love to see how Rey would react to seeing Finn get flirted with. You know what I’m saying?!
