Just a year or so away from the premiere of Star Wars 8 Movie and fan speculations are flooding the internet from end to end.
Included in the theories fans are trying to figure out are Chewbacca’s love interest and Rey being a Kenobi.
Star Wars 8 Movie Spoilers: Chewbacca’s Girlfriend
As for the first item on our list of theories and fan speculations: we can actually confirm that Chewbacca is in fact in a relationship.
Thanks to Academy Award Winner, Lupita Nyong’o, who plays the character of Maz Kanata, we know that the two are partners.
Nyong’o confirmed this while in an interview with Yahoo Movies. When asked if there is a chance for Maz and Chewbacca, here’s her response and the conversation that followed:
“That is a brilliant question. As the representation for Maz, I would say, I certainly hope so.”
“So you’re saying there’s a chance,” interviewer Kevin Polowy asked.
“I think that is in Maz’s hopes and dreams, yeah,” Nyong’o laughingly said.
Cinema Blend also shares that even before Nyong’o’s interview, there were already subtle hints about their relationship.
“The possible romance between Maz Kanata and Chewbacca isn’t all that surprising, though. That’s because in Star War: The Force Awakens, when Han, Finn, Rey, and BB-8 arrive to speak to Maz, she asks Mr Solo where her ‘boyfriend’ Chewbacca is.”
Star Wars 8 Movie Spoilers: Obi-Wan Kenobi is Ren’s Dad?
Another theory, one that is yet to be confirmed, is from Mr. Sunday Movies who believes that Ren is a descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
On his YouTube post, he explains in detail the reasons. And we must admit, they are pretty compelling.
Firstly, he observes their clothing style — which by all means does look similar. But more than a similar fashion sense, their inclination to mind tricks are also quite in sync.
Cinema Blend, on another post explains Mr. Sunday’s theory.
“Mr. Sunday Movies goes on to theorize that Rey is the granddaughter of Obi-Wan, much like Kylo Ren is the grandson of Anakin “Darth Vader” Skywalker. His idea is that Rey was born to a child that Obi-Wan had during his exile, who then went on to exile Rey on Jakku for as yet unknown reasons.”
Whatever the turn out of events are in Star Wars 8 Movie, we’re sure questions will be answered but more so, new questions and theories will arise.
Star Wars 8 movie premieres on December 2017.
