No matter how much research I do there’s always that one complaint in the comments about me not knowing the original source material. So today I went down into the depths and you know what random commenter? You were absolutely right. There buried deep in the obscure forgotten lore was the answer I was looking for. The last Jedi is the name of a Star Wars comic from 1981, so obviously the plot from the new movie will be clearly inspired from that. So let’s see what Disney has in store for us. In the comic. Luke and Leia traveled to a remote planet to rescue a prince. Sounds plausible, and it’s there that they meet a brain-damaged, bug man who carries a stick like it’s a lightsaber, okay? And that guy’s name is Jedediah, so when he dies Luke refers to him as the Last Jedi. (Opening intro) Hello Internet! Welcome to Film Theory—the show that’ll tempt you to give in to your skepticism and succumb to the dark side of your favorite franchises. Do it! So the Last Jedi is right around the corner, the red carpet world premiere is happening later this week And you know what? I have something to prove I’ve already gone out on a limb to make a prediction as to who Ray’s parents are but I think I could go one step further This is my last chance to prove to you that old team theorists over here is digging deeper and looking closer at the evidence than Anyone else out there, and what better way to prove that I’m worthy of my theory salt than by predicting how this year’s biggest Blockbuster is gonna play out before anyone even gets to see it That’s right ladies and gentlemen before anyone in the world sees this movie I am gonna call the major twists of Star Wars: The Last Jedi based on trailer analysis and good old-fashioned research. And to make things a little more interesting Let’s put some stakes on it—if I’m right, then you have to subscribe to this channel Come back to the Film Theorists channel and force push that subscribe button, and if I’m wrong I don’t know That’s your side of the deal and let me know what I should do in the comments about the thing that you want to see Me do I’ll see it. We’ll make it happen in a future video. It’s only fair. No weird kinky stuff deal deal. Oh Just assume that you’re making a handshake gesture towards your computer screen right now, like I am like an idiot Okay, so if we’re sticking with the whole Star Wars rhymes George Lucas quote thing then the last Jedi will be the tense middle chapter Like The Empire Strikes Back at least I hope it’s the dark and surprising Empire Strikes Back middle chapter and on the slow-paced Terrible dialog Attack of the Clones middle chapter. I don’t like sand, and judging by the hype director Rian Johnson is giving his own movie. We should expect the unexpected He’s teased that moments of the movie will quote shock the audience And that one scene in particular will leave us unable to breathe so it’s my test today to figure out how this movie is gonna Take our breaths away vader style. There’s a lot We don’t know I mean we don’t even know some of the character names one of the new characters being introduced to this movie is played by Benicio Del Toro Del Toro, but everyone has been super tight-lipped about what his character’s name actually is it seems awfully suspicious I mean officially he’s labeled as DJ, but DJ Yeah, not buying it nice try marketing people But you expect me to believe that a badass Star Wars character is gonna Be named after a teenage girl from full house besides some do to gamestop already determined That’s toy version of this character has a helmet inscription in or Abeche that translates to don’t join, (aka DJ for short) my prediction this character is gonna be the Lando Calrissian of this movie the laid-back smooth talk and double-crosser Anyway, that’s just a random Observation get ready to get those sub fingers the clickin because i’ve looked at all the information I could find and I am Confident that. I’ve got the ending of the last Jedi figured out and Rian Johnson is right. It’s Now you know how movies sometimes reveal a bit too much from their trailers well I’ve now seen the teaser and Trailers for the last Jedi more times than I’ve seen the Sun in the past few months And I believe the clues to the plot of the movies are there in a few very important votes and images Let’s start by reviewing the main things that we see in here across the Lucas training rayon Ock – but doesn’t seem too happy about It and might actually quit leading us to important quote number one Before that scared me enough that it doesn’t know He also has a major hot take on the Jedi an important quote number two. I only know one truth time for the Jedi to end over in kylo Ren land we get a little monologue from Snoke talking about how special he is an important quote number three when I found Kylo ren’s philosophy about his parents is pretty well summed up an important quote number four And finally Rey is feeling a bit lost herself and based on the trailer seems to be asking kylo Ren for help an important quote number five I need someone to Show me my place in all this As far as imagery in both the teaser and the trailers we get a look at something very rare in the Star Wars universe books including one specific book with a very mysterious Symbol on it and lastly we have an image of Snoke helping ray achieve her yoga goals by forcing her into a painful Backbend these all might seem like disparate pieces, but there’s a pretty clear through line here Although the whole crew will absolutely be in the last Jedi This is primarily a movie about Rey Luke Kylo, Ren and the bonds they form and more importantly the bonds They break with each other, so let’s start the deep dive predictions with our og hero Luke Skywalker And what we can expect from him obviously from the trailers He has some help to give Rey But it’s not like she’s gonna show up and everything goes off without a hitch the two luke quotes I mentioned before gives us a strong indication of prediction number one He will not finish Rey’s training much the same way that Yoda was reluctant to Train Luke And then never finished doing so in the Empire Strikes Back as for why Luke believes the Jedi need to end that conclusion is probably Connected to why he’s on Achtung in the first place. In The Force Awakens Han says that the people who knew Luke believed he went off in search of the first Jedi Temple after kylo Ren turned on him And killed his students. “People who know him best think he went looking for the first Jedi Temple.” Well he found that first Jedi Temple on Ahch-To and the reason he went there is almost certainly to find the books we see in the trailers. That symbol you see on the book is actually the Jedi Symbol meaning that these books are almost certainly the ancient Jedi Symbol meaning that these books are almost certainly the ancient Jedi Texts known as the Journal of the Whills. The Journal of the Whills are basically a source of ancient wisdom and history of the galaxy. You remember Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus from rogue one? Well, they were known as the guardians of the Whills so this isn’t coming completely out of nowhere Now, well.. what we don’t have a ton of information on what is inside the Journal of the Whills.. there are two quotes that could be useful to us. The first is from the novelization of The Force Awakens which states, quote, “first comes the day then comes the night after the darkness shines through the light the difference they say is only made right
by resolving of grey through refined Jedi sight.” solid rhyme scheme their Jedi taking apart the poetry like a tenth grader learning the fine works of William Carlos Williams It’s clear this Jedi Text is saying that the Jedi need to refine their site to create Grey bringing the absolute dark side and absolute light side together to bring balance to the force which I gotta say I am NOT opposed to, I mean, what good guy doesn’t also want to use force lightning, and now maybe you’ll be able to and Luke might believe he’s the one to make this happen based On another quote from the journal of wills quote and in the time of greatest despair there shall come a savior And he shall be known as the son of the sons now admittedly this quote is non Canon but Luke could easily be considered the son of the sons given his home planet of Tatooine as a giant ball of Sand and sadness governed by two hot Suns if Luke believes in these quotations He may believe both that his mission isn’t over and that it’s his task to bring together the darkness and the light Maybe even through his own. Death which would of course make him jeanna, and before you point out that the film’s title in other languages points to the word Jedi being plural keep in mind that the Director very directly stated that Luke himself is in fact the last Jedi and more Importantly that it’s explicitly stated that Luke is the last Jedi in the opening crawl of the force awakens reading sometimes does prove essential But there’s also a clue that Luke’s decision for the Jedi to end isn’t one he’s making passively He is going out swinging in the international version of the last Jedi’s poster Luke is no longer in the background But is instead in the middle holding a lightsaber now there have been a lot of official Star Wars posters over the years I’ve looked at them all but in every single One if you’re shown holding a lightsaber you are going to be involved in a big lightsaber battle before the end of the movie sure Seems like Luke isn’t gonna go down quietly and based on the rest of that poster means they’ll probably end up fighting Kylo, Ren towards the end of the film So where does that leave Rey? Well as cagey as everyone involved in the last Jedi has been about giving things away? They’ve also given so many interviews that we can start to piece a few things together Daisy Ridley said at a panel in April that she and Luke might not have the perfect mentor-mentee relationship And said specifically that quote It’s difficult to meet your heroes because they might not be what you expect this Reinforces what I said earlier that it’s likely that Rey won’t complete her training with Luke and will end up going off on her own if Rey recognizes the power of the force But then also realizes that the mystique of the Jedi and Luke Skywalker can’t or won’t give her the answers She’s so desperate for is it such a stretch to believe that she turned to the dark side dun dun dun I Know I know that saying a Star Wars character turns evil is basically my whole shtick yes I was wrong about Luke don’t treat me like the matpat who cried synth because this one seriously makes all of the sense in a big interview with Entertainment Weekly Daisy Ridley says that quote the resistance isn’t all that much terrain Implying that she could likely be swayed away from it wouldn’t a logical place to turn be towards kylo Ren Especially if he ends up being revealed to be her brother and let me just say it I know people disagree with me on the whole Rey as kylo sister theory But I am sticking to it especially since there is no chance that Disney is letting her parents be Star Wars, Battlefront exclusive non force using characters made by, EA Sorry for all you Dell iDEN truthers out there, and yes I know when aftermath it says that Luke left her behind on jakku But it doesn’t actually say who the parents are Specifically so the answer still has yet to be decided meaning han and leia still makes the most sense regardless Already made a video for that theory and honestly It doesn’t really matter for today’s theory from their first few encounters in the force awakens Kylo, ren says ray needs a teacher And then he can be the one to show her the ways of the force. I could show you the ways of the force If Ray’s looking for a teacher she knows where to find one director Rian Johnson also gives What feels like a pretty big hint in that same Entertainment Weekly piece where he says about Rey? Whoa you’re going to meet people who you think are gonna help, but don’t and help is gonna come from unexpected places and It sounds to me like Ray goes to Luke searching for help Luke ends up giving up on her and she’s left to turn to kylo Ren who is eager to extend a helping hand this is all further Supported by this production photo of Rey with kylo Ren in the background she seems awfully calm considering She’s right in front of a guy who tried to kill her in the last movie But maybe you feel like this would come out of nowhere that there’s no hint of the dark side near Rey at any point well How about this you remember that Snoke quote from earlier about seeing raw power in kylo Ren? He’s not talking about kylo Ren in Taiwan the subtitles for that very same trailer use a very specific character for the pronoun you when Snoke says when I found you and that character is specifically feminine in the Taiwanese language Not a masculine usage, so unless there’s some unexpected backstory on kylo Ren Snoke is Absolutely talking about Ray when I found you Gray and with this reveal suddenly a lot of pieces from the force awakens and the less Jedi start falling into place Snoke sends to Rey in the force when she was very young Prompting her parents who may or may not be Han and Leia along with Luke’s help to exile somewhere where they thought She’d never be found jakku so Snoke went after her older brother Ben Instead now that Snoke has found ray Remember that image of the two of them from the trailer would it really be that hard to turn her to the dark side Adam driver says again in that same Entertainment Weekly piece which really revealed a lot that his character kylo Ren began turning against his parents because he felt they cared more about the Resistance than they cared about him wouldn’t that be enough to turn rey against an idol who rejects her and parents who abandoned her So here is your shocking ending to this year’s biggest movie Rey’s bad Experience with Luke coupled with a knowledge that she’s kylo Ren’s sister leads her to ask kylo to help her find my pace losses one way or another ratios herself as open to the dark side Luke comes to fight kylo Ren and Potentially Snoke as well thinking He’ll ever a on a side But she turns on him during the battle the kylo Ren monologue about killing the past is advice He gives to raid to help her become who she was meant to be Maybe Snoke gives her a little force push along the side, and they all unite to kill Luke officially making him the last Jedi Oh Pretty dark right before you say that the Star Wars universe would never go in that direction Well hate to break it to you, but it already has granted This is no longer canon But in the novel sacrifice which is part of the Star Wars legacy the fourth series the son of Han and Leia Jason solo kills his sister’s Jedi Master Mara Jade Skywalker, so what you have is a young solo killing an older Skywalker who also happens to be his sister’s Jedi teacher Sound familiar it’s already happened in the extended universe once now all the pieces are in place to make it happen in the movies but hey that’s just a theory a film theory and Cuts ever wonder about the economic ramifications of blowing up the Death Star what it would do to the entire galaxy are the rebels Truly doing a good thing here Well, then click the Box to the left And hey here’s the subscribe button remember when you see Star Wars the last Jedi and that ending looks a little bit familiar Remember that we made we shook on it Or at least we both pointed our hands at the screen and did a shaking motion on it So make sure you hold up your end of the bargain and come back and force push that subscribe button now if you’ll excuse me I need to go wait in line for the new movie because it is coming out soon And I want to be the first to see how right I am hopefully fingers crossed

  1. Hei dapat ken you meg e fikri ebay th kriya amri walt happen when de kristi amri vs th ampayer

  2. Anyone else interested to see if film theory can figure out how to most effectively use a lightsaber because the way the Jedi do it doesn't seem practical given how they work.

  3. You made one fatal flaw in your breakdown … Disney is incapable of making a woman the bad guy, or even look bad.

  4. 6:55 you are right that those books are Jedi text but what you may not know is that the place that the books are in and the books are burned /cannot say who burned the text because of spoiler reasons

  5. "I don't like sand."
    OMG Oscar Worthy somebody give him an Oscar that's the quote of the year so inspirational never touching sand again no more beach quotes.
    Ok ok, I'm being sarcastic.

  6. Theory. Ray will go to savies workshop (Disney land) because she broke anikans lightsaber. It has been confirmed that the Star Wars stuff is canon. What do the film theorists say.

  7. WhatMatpat thinks : Luke will die from the combined forces of Kylo and dark side Rey

    What actually happened Luke dies from a face time call

  8. Ray doesn’t go to the dark side, and Luke dies using the force. Nvm you know this by now. And by the way I really love the theory you made! I couldn’t get close to the theories you make twice a week! ( for film theory and game theory)

  9. Rian Johnson: There are moments in this movie that will leave the audience unable to breath.
    Me: Yeah, unable to breath from the immense stupidity.

  10. You are so wrong. I know this is way to late. But I saw this the night it came out and knew you were wrong. I know Corey Miller, the maker of jar jar ion carbonite. He told me the whole thing before it came out.

  11. “They will leave you unable to breath”
    Yeah because they cut of the audio for five seconds and come back with full volume

  12. I believed the theory until I realized it's modern disney and if there's a female character they're determined to make them the hero, same with the jyn erso theory

  13. I still cant get it out of my brain on how stupid that bug guys name is jedidiah (jedi-die-a) a bit on the nose right?

  14. Well in germany the title is "Die letzten Jedi" wich means that they're multiple last jedi. Thanks for the spoiler, Star wars
