That film title certainly started a frenzy of speculation, leaks and rumours. Is a Skywalker going to rise from the dead? Most people expect Luke to return as a Force ghost but what about Anakin? Kylo Ren’s obsession with his grandfather as Darth Vader seems certain to bring the Sith icon back somehow, especially now we know Palpatine is also somehow involved. New concept art leaks appear to show where it will all take place.
There have been reports that Kylo Ren’s obsession with Vader continues to grow.
This links in with the recent Vader comics which revealed his quest to conquer death and bring back Padme. it also gave more information about the creation of his castle on Mustafar, which is believed to be holding major Sith artefacts as well as other secrets from the Prequel and Original Sequels.
Leaked scene descriptions appeared to reveal Kylo and his Knights of Ren may travel to the volcanic planet in search of power and answers.
Guess what new leaked images show?
Making Star Wars Net has published a series of images. Two, in particular, show a fiery location and a castle on a cliff top with pouring lava.
It would be hugely unlikely the franchise would decide to visit and introduce an entirely new world which is so similar to Mustafar. It really looks like fans will finally see more of Vader’s base on Mustafar, so spectacularly shown in Rogue One.
There are three main possibilities of what will take place.
Firstly, it could be where Kylo goes to find that “ape” creature glimpsed in the trailer repairing his helmet. Many believe the creature has links to Vader.
Secondly, there has been intense speculation Kylo and Rey will “flash fight”, their powers zapping them to numerous locations during one epic confrontation.
Thirdly, Kylo will visit Mustafar seeking answers about his grandfather, and possibly encounter his force ghost there.
