A Trilogy of Star Wars Questions
Star Wars VIII is still months and months away. But the questions and rumors are still buzzing!
Star Wars VIII opens December 15th, 2017. There's still a bunch of questions. Here are the top three from just this week!
Peter Mayhew, the actor who plays Chewbacca, Han Solo's co-pilot, partner and right hand Wookie, says that originally, Old Ben Kenobi - played by the legendary Alec Guiness - wasn't supposed to die in the first Star Wars movie! Can you imagine how different the movies would have been if Old Ben had lived? I always thought Ben could take Vader. He made it kind of obvious that he let Vader win the duel...for a reason. See how it motivated Luke and the Rebellion.
The burning question is, Who is Rey's parents? There's a new movie coming that could be about Rey's mother. The rumor that's been floating around this last week is that Obi-Wan Kenobi - played by Ewan McGregor in the prequel trilogy and Alec Guinness in the original trilogy - is Rey's grandfather! There's that whole gap from when the last of the Jedi's went into hiding, and Obi-Wan took Luke and hid on Tattoine. What exactly was he doing all that time...?
One of the many questions of The Force Awakens is, What the heck is up with C-3PO's red arm? Well, Marvel Comics just released a comic book to explain just that! "Threepio" leads a rag-tag band of Expendable 'droids on a Suicide Squad-like mission. I won't spoil it for you, but you'll never believe what happens next! He loses his arm! But, the whole story is about how he gets a red arm. So, there you go.
