Star Wars: The Last Jedi is clearly shaping up to be the darkest Star Wars story to date. This should come as no surprise given that director Rian Johnson has been touting a big, emotional dive into the Force, and the overall attempts to balance the Light and the Dark which has consumed the galaxy for ages.
Whether it’s through the origins and overall destinies of characters like Daisy Ridley’s Rey and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, the rivalry between Supreme Leader Snoke and Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, or the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the stakes are higher than ever — which usually means that death is close by. Following the gut-wrenching execution of Harrison Ford’s Han Solo in The Force Awakens, one thing’s for sure: everyone’s a potential casualty, and as a result we’ve narrowed down a few predictions as to who will bite the dust next in this epic space saga.
5. KYLO REN
Fans may actually enjoy Kylo’s death given that he was the one who killed Han Solo, his father. But what’s for certain is that he will be meeting up Rey, even trying to seduce her to the Dark Side. This could end up being his undoing because Rey viewed Han as a father-figure and may well end up taking revenge. From what we’ve seen so far, she has a power that scares Luke, so Kylo better watch his back.
Snoke is also tempting Rey, so he could convince her to kill Kylo as well. There’s also the possibility Kylo’s former master, Luke, may take him out, because the last Skywalker (we assume) doesn’t seem to be holding Jedi ideals anymore. The point is, Kylo has a lot of enemies, and if Force-users don’t get him, there’s always Poe Dameron and the Resistance fighters ready to blast him into oblivion.
No one wants to see their favorite Wookiee die, but there’s a chance the traitorous Solo will end up repaying Chewie by killing him too. It would be very bitter, but very dramatic if he meets the same fate as Han, as we met them as ride-or-die partners way back in 1977’s A New Hope.
It would also give the likes of Luke and Rey another excuse to hunt down Snoke, Kylo and the rest of the First Order. Chewie always runs the risk of getting shot down in the Millennium Falcon in any case, and with General Hux (Domnhall Gleeson) eyeing the Resistance, Chewie is very likely to end up in his crosshairs. He’s also a protector of General Leia, so that too puts him in the firing line when the First Order comes a-knocking.
3. A PORG
Many assume that the Porgs will be all friendly and cute, but subtle details have been dropped so far that indicate Chewbacca may end up eating one! Found on Ahch-To, where Luke will be training Rey, they were assumed to be creatures that the Wookiee befriended, but a shot in the D-23 event sizzle reel showed him with feathers in his mouth, hinting he may have feasted on one.
From the promotional footage, and John Boyega’s (who plays ex-Stormtrooper Finn) comments so far, they may be pests infesting the Falcon, so what better way to get rid of them than by smacking and snacking on them. Chewbacca doesn’t handle annoyance well, no matter the species, so if they get on his nerves and tick him off on a Jar-Jar Binks level, then we won’t be shocked if he eats one. Just like the Falcon, Chewie needs his fuel!
