Alright, I’m going to be honest… The Star Wars Rumor Mill was pretty pitiful so far this week.
I was only able to find one new rumor for us. And, while it’s going to be a “yeah, duh, we already knew that” kind of a rumor, I felt it was worth reporting because I’m sooooooo excited about it!
This rumor has to do with a certain badass chick in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
AND! As always, please STOP READING NOW if you would like to avoid any potential Star Wars rumors and/or spoilers!!!!
Okay, here we go…
RUMOR: Star Wars: Episode VIII will feature a lot more Leia.
YAY!!!!! And duh, right? But isn’t it fun to really stop and think about?!
This rumor was reported by BGR after it was revealed that Carrie Fisher (who plays General Leia of course) would only be attending New York Comic Con for one day because of Episode VIII re-shoots.
We all know (or STRONGLY suspect) that there will be more Leia. We got a moderate amount of Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and barely any Luke. Most fans feel incredibly certain that Episode VIII will center on the mentor/mentee relationship between Luke and Rey.
BUT! We also need to see Leia deal with the Han (*tears*) and Kylo Ren tragedy. Like, I’m seriously ready for Mama Leia to kick Kylo’s ass, if you know what I mean.
ANDDDDD!!!! Personally, I can’t wait to see a Leia and Luke reunion. I’m so excited about it. I was very sad that we didn’t get to see Luke, Leia, and Han on screen together in The Force Awakens. So I’m really hoping for an epic brother/sister reunion to make up for that huge bummer!
But enough about me! — What do you think about this Leia rumor?! What are you excited to see Leia face/overcome/accomplish in Episode VIII? Leave comments and let us know!
