Welcome to the Legion!

Hey Star Wars fans! Happy Friday to you all. Let’s kick off this weekend with some Star Wars rumors/spoilers, shall we?

I have two rumors for us this week. The first is an updated rumor about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The second is about a potential, new standalone film.


Alright! And we’re off!


1.) RUMOR UPDATE: The Force Tree in Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be on fire at some point.

I wrote about the Force Tree rumor back in the summer, twice. First here, then here! And now we have an update on the status of our favorite Force-Sensitive Tree.

Making Star Wars reports that The Force Tree will be on fire in the film. Not sure how or why. But MSW reports that they have seen the tree on fire.

Yikes! Poor tree; this rumor is a bummer but I guess it makes sense. The Last Jedi is a “make it or break it” film; will the Jedi survive or won’t they? We’ll have to find out. But if this tree is significant to the Force, it’s going to be a huge target.

However, I don’t think Kylo Ren will try to burn it down, right? Because he’s connected to The Force. The Dark Side, yes, but doesn’t that mean the destruction of the tree would be harmful to him???? I have SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

Whatever happens, I love The Force Tree story and I can’t wait to see this entire plot line play out.


2.) The Obi-Wan standalone film is happening. And, yes, Obi-Wan will be played by Ewan McGregor.

According to Star Wars News Net, “Kathleen Kennedy and the rest of Lucasfilm fully intend to make an Obi-Wan movie set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, with Ewan McGregor in tow.”

The rumor goes on to further state that Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) could be directing the film.

I’m excited about this! Although I know there may be mixed feelings about the upcoming film, personally, I’m stoked. I love Obi-Wan; he’s one of my favorite characters and I want to learn more about him. Also, I think Ewan McGregor will do a great job. He knew he had large, Alec Guinnesssized shoes to fill when he did the prequels and I enjoyed his performance.
