This is probably the biggest spoiler that has ever been leaked, regarding any Star Wars movie, EVER! Out of this world can only mean one thing SPACE!! So, natch, some part of this movie has actually got to take place IN SPACE!! Talk about unraveling the very mystery George Lucas himself first buried deep within the enigmatic tapestry that is the Saga of the Skywalkers!??
Filming is now underway onStar Wars: Episode 9, and Anthony Daniels is back on Twitter, recapping yesterday's events. Could be something(?), could be nothing, we'll find out next year...
This movie is over a year and a half away yet, and Ive still got goosebumps knowing the filming has begun!?
People seemed to debate whether or not Luke was heroic, in The Last Jedi... To me, he was, most certainly. I loved everything about it. But, this post of his just proves why he is a hero in real life. At least, to me.

I don't know, it still seems a little to much like whoring out her dead body for a quick cash-grab (or more likely fan service after the train wreck that was Last Jedi). Still, at least they're not resorting to CGI zombies.
I completely and totally echo his sentiments... Im so happy well get to see her one last time!??
