Lucasfilm is one of Hollywood’s most secretive studios thanks to the company’s strict defense against potential spoilers. Still, diehard fans continue to poke at the studio in hopes of unlocking a Death Star loophole which will give them behind-the-scenes peeks at films. Fans haven’t managed to sneak past Lucasfilm’s iron-clad security, but netizens have managed to find possible film teasers in previous product leaks. And, now, one report is suggesting that a new toy leak hints at a major showdown in The Last Jedi.
Over on Promo Bricks (via Star Wars News Net), the site shared a slew of LEGO sets which are rumored to be part of Lucasfilm’s Force Friday event. Previous packages from the line has given fans spoilers before, but its latest update has piqued the interest of fans.
The new LEGO listing suggests that one of The Last Jedi’s climatic battles will take place on the planet Crait. The set associated with the battle mentions it includes the First Order Star Destroyer, a First Order Heavy Assault Walker, a Resistance Bomber, and Kylo Ren’s new TIE fighter is also present. Reports about this set have been shared before, but the addition of Kylo Ren’s aircraft is a new bit of information.
However, there is an even bigger piece of information present in the new LEGO update. The set is rumored to include mini-figures of Kylo Ren and luke Skywalker, implying that the two men may clash during the battle.
In the past, rumors have circulated that Kylo Ren may come in contact with Luke during The Last Jedi. Speculation has arisen which suggests Kylo Ren will make his way to Ahch-To, and others wonder if the Solo heir will have to face-off with both Luke and Rey. After all, Kylo Ren is still on a mission to destroy the Jedi, and Luke stands as the order’s final remanent. If the villain wants to see his goal through, he will have to come face-to-face with Luke at some point, and the duel the two would have would be one for the ages.
