Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, appeared on the Star Wars Show recently and gave a state of the galaxy type of interview to clue fans in on what is going on with all things Star Wars. One of her more interesting statements revolved around Rian Johnson’s handling of the various plot mysteries that were setup in The Force Awakens for both the new and old cast. For example, Rey’s parentage is a huge question that all fans are still asking about and have been speculating on for almost two years now. There’s also the mystery of Snoke, or Luke’s current path with the Force, so there are plenty of mysteries that will need addressed at some point in time.
Well, according to Kennedy, that point in time for most of these questions and mysteries may not be in The Last Jedi. When speaking about Rian’s accomplishments she said:
“I think he’s done an exceptional job of taking these new characters and some of the legacy characters and moving us to this next place. He doesn’t answer all the questions, I will say that up front. But there are certain questions he does answer in a really wonderfully provocative way, and I think there’ll be some surprises that people aren’t expecting.”
She pretty much said a lot without saying anything at all, and while her revelation should’t come as a surprise to anyone — I mean we still have a whole other movie to get through after TLJ — it is interesting to hear that Rian does answer a few questions in a “wonderfully provocative way.” I think the “surprises” confession may be even more exciting to think about, especially for Rey’s parents, which most people already think they have figured out, so it’d be awesome to get smacked in the face with an answer that no one saw coming.
Oh well, December 15th is getting closer and closer, so we will all find out exactly what Kathleen was talking about sooner than later.
