Rumor: A new planet for The Last Jedi?

In today’s rumor, Making Star Wars reports on a new planet it seems we’ll see in The Last Jedi and who likely resides there. (It might be connected to another recent rumor.)

→ Some areas of the fandom ::coughReylocough:: have noted that the certain StarWars.com Databank entries for have been updated to reference a “mysterious” and “strange” connection between Kylo Ren and Rey. Is it love? Is it their genes? Is it the Force? All three? Take it as you will.

→ It’s official: Jimmy Vee is playing R2-D2 in The Last Jedi, per both his agency, Oh So Small and Lucasfilm themselves, via Mashable. He takes over from Kenny Baker, who died last year.

→ And to round things out, here’s a quick reminder that any rumor sourced from Reddit or 4chan should be considered extremely dubious. (Which is why I don’t bother to report them myself anymore.) That’s one reason why it’s important to note the original source of an item! Also be on watch for the term ‘speculation.’ There’s a lot of fan speculation out there, but that doesn’t make it news.

    Why does Rey and Kylo having a mysterious and strange connection have to lead to Reylo?

    They’re both Force users, they both knew Han, they’ve fought each other, Kylo invaded Rey’s mind, Rey has dreams of Luke and the Knights of Ren, and now it seems like Rey will be Luke’s new apprentice, the way Kylo once was.

    Makes sense that they would have a connection. People usually have an uncomfortable connection with their abusers. In this case, they might even be family to boot!

      I’m guessing you don’t have much experience with shippers. Everything that implies a connection is a sign. It’s basically part of the deal. But yeah, this is pretty broad.

    I can see why they’d have a connection. I mean, Rey beat up Kylo pretty bad. Doubt he’d forget that. And Kylo killed Han and really hurt Finn, so I doubt she’d forget that.
