Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Compass May Be Important for Luke’s Journey

Ever since that still-baffling first trailer has been released, there have been so many examinations of the scenes and character encounters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

A new report now looks into one gear in Luke’s possession, which could serve as a clue to where he’s headed and where his journey will conclude. According to Making Star Wars, Luke has a compass that has Aurebesh writing inside.

Apart from beautiful aesthetics, the source notes the possibilities that the compass has. For starters, there’s the issue of whether the compass is used at the start or at the end of the film. This could make a big difference, as it could either symbolize the actual journey being taken in Star Wars: The Last Jedi or perhaps a potential teaser to what’s to come in the next movie.

Speculation also touched on the possibility that the compass is extra special in that it could even be mystical rather than one needed for the physical realm.

How exactly all this will tie together in the film, especially with rumors of how there may be a face-off between Team Luke and Team Snoke. Does the compass even have a role leading to that possible outcome?

 

 

We still have half a year to think about all the possibilities. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is expected this Christmas season, and Rian Johnson’s epic follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains every bit as intriguing.
