Lucasfilm has always maintained decorum to not reveal any spoilers or leaks from the Star Wars Saga. The media members have also never been allowed to carry any electronic devices in the press screenings to stick to their idea about leaks and spoilers. The company is following the same precautions for the upcoming Episode IX.
However, for something like Star Wars it gets really difficult to keep all the leaks from coming out. There actually have been many Star War leaks in the past. Here are some of the best Star Wars leaks:
Could Skywalker be more than just a name?
This has been the most popular Star Wars leak. After the release of the first teaser, people have assumed that the title is not referring to a single character. Many fans believe that the term Skywalker will be used in Episode IX to denote a class that is at peace with both sides of the Force.
“These people, from Rey to Kylo Ren, to that little stable boy with the broom at the end of The Last Jedi, will not be a Jedi or Sith,” Inverse has stated. “They will be Skywalkers.” A few dialogues from The Last Jedi also support this theory and a few statements given by The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams.
“This movie is about the new generation,” said Abrams to a bunch of fans. “What they’ve inherited, the light and the dark, and ask the question about facing the greatest evil: are they ready?”
Return of the Hutts
You can find so many leaks on the internet that you cannot understand which one is legit. It has been in the rumors that Hutt Cartel can make a return. “The new Hutt is Jabba’s son, I forget his name but its name-dropped when they bring up his title: ‘ — the Hutt, son of the mighty Jabba.'” was written by a Reddit user.
Snoke will return
If we believe the words of a YouTuber and Star Wars fan Mike Zeroh, a storyboard has been leaked which features Snoke. That is why we can conclude that Snoke will return.
Will Lando Calrissian have a big part to play?
For Episode IX Lando Calrissian is back in the movie. Many rumors have suggested that Lando Calrissian will have a significant role to play.
Are Rey’s parents revealed?
As soon as the ThatHashtagShow reported that Disney is in want of a female lead in the age group of 40-50 to play a character called Mara, people started guessing it to be for Rey’s mother. This Star Wars leak is big because it suggests that Rey’s real mom and dada will be Han Solo and Qira (Emilia Clarke).
Lando Calrissian’s secret daughter
With the joining of the British actress Naomi Ackie the cast of Episode IX, fans started posting theories about her character in the movie. This Star Wars leak has also become quite a big one as people have jumped to the conclusion of Naomi Ackie’s character to be Lando Calrissian’s secret daughter.
Could Rey be a Skywalker?
The first teaser for Episode IX doesn’t tell us much about the plot, but it has a lot of callbacks from the trilogy. People started getting curious about what the “rise of Skywalker” could mean. The first assumption is that it is referred to Rey. Many have started guessing that Rey is actually a Skywalker.
The emperor returns
We all know Emperor Palpatine (a.k.a. Darth Sidious) was thrown in the mouth of death by Anakin Skywalker but in this Star Wars episode, he lives as suggested by a Star Wars leak. Many theories suggest that the Emperor could use a loophole from Star Wars Rebels. “The World Between Worlds in the hidden Jedi Temple on Lothal was something Palpatine sought to manipulate as he could travel through time by using the Force.” It is also assumed that in Dark Empire, Palpatine keeps transferring his soul into different bodies.
