New details for Star Wars: The Last Jedi are starting to be unearthed in the form of some new merchandise, and a new toy featuring Kylo Ren might hint at some bad news coming the First Order's way in the upcoming movie.
When it comes to Star Wars, there's little that can't be examined, mined, or theorized over in great detail. Whether it's a new character revealed or a tweet from a Lucasfilm executive or a toy being released in stores, the fans will ponder its meaning at length.
Case in point, the new toys for Star Wars: The Last Jedi that are set to be released on September 1. Force Friday is imminent, but some retailers are breaking the street date and putting some of that merchandise out a little early.
And with the new talking Kylo Ren action figure loaded with phrases from the movie, fans are starting to glean some possible plot points from the film. Twitter user @KnightofEm posted a video of the figure and its phrases. Check it out below.
Did you get all of those? If not, here they are:
- "I've been waiting for you."
- "I need your guidance."
- "Will you help me?"
- "Show me again, the power of the darkness."
- "Don't be afraid."
- "NOOOOOO! It's too late."
The first five are all standard "evil Ben Solo" lines of dialogue in line with Star Wars: The Force Awaknes. But that last one? That one is loaded. Especially the weird, sci-fi noises in between the "No!" and "it's too late" parts.
What could it mean? What's too late? Does Link awaken some latent Jedi abilities in people across the galaxy? Does Snoke die? Or did Kylo just leave the popcorn in the microwave for too long?
We're not sure what it means at this point. How could we?! There isn't even a second trailer out yet!
Hopefully we learn more about Kylo Ren's and his possibly overcooked steak soon, when Force Friday merchandise and a possible new trailer are released.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theaters December 15.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the second film in the new Star Wars sequel trilogy that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. The film will deal with Luke training Rey to become a, and possibly the last, Jedi. Meanwhile, the Resistance, including Poe Dameron and First Order defector Finn, continues to fight against the First Order, led by General Hux, while Supreme Leader Snoke and his Dark Side follower Kylo Ren continue their mysterious plot.
