5 Theories We Have After Watching The New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer
#5- Finn Dies Fighting Captain Phasma
This one is a bit of a stretch because we already know that John Boyega will be returning for Episode IX, but who’s to say his role isn’t just a flashback? In any case, this theory stems from the fact that we see Finn go toe-to-toe with his former commanding officer in the new trailer. At one point during the skirmish, while they two combatants are at an apparent stalemate, we cut to a shot of Phasma’s chrome helmet, which shows Finn’s reflection staring back at him. While this might not seem like a big deal, this year at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Delilah S. Dawson – writer of Star Wars: Phasma – tweeted, “The thing about Captain PHASMA is that when she kills you, you have to watch yourself die,” along with a photo of her own reflection in a Phasma helmet. Does this mean that Finn’s reflection in Phasma’s helmet means he’ll have to witness his own death, or did Rian Johnson just really like that shot?
