The Star Wars saga has seen a lot of planets in its time. We even saw it in the between-events movie Rogue One, which has a funny naming story in itself.
For Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the still untitled movie follow-up, Star Wars News Net reported that three planets may actually return. The report is a mix of speculations and insights from an insider, though we'll delve more into the insider reports.
The three planets are Tatooine, Endor, and Mustafar. However, the movie coming this holiday season may not necessarily see all three planets, nor will they be shown in that particular order either.
The planet where it all began, Tatooine, may actually be showcased once more, though in what manner, this hasn't been specified yet. Considering how Luke Skywalker is technically back in action, it's possible that he will choose this planet for several reasons apart from nostalgia.
Endor and Mustafar will tie into the other two movies by way of Kylo Ren. The Darth Vader wannabe didn't hide his wannabe-ness in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so it's possible that he will be visiting the previous places where Vader was.
According to the insider, it's possible that this will be done so that Kylo Ren will find some sort of kinship with his grandfather. That's a potential reason for the grandson to go on a quest to visit these planets.
As an add-on, Mustafar may be a possible culmination that was already foreshadowed by Rogue One. This may be pertaining to the great Sith Lord's castle on the planet, while also putting Kylo Ren in the middle of the fray.
Now, the main meat of how this will all tie together may be seen in the journey that Kylo Ren will undertake. From the looks of it, we may see a hidden side to the Jedi and the Force that we may explain the disillusionment for Luke and, more interestingly, the possible reason why Kylo Ren, supposedly the son of two of the good ones in the original trilogy, has turned to the Dark Side.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be out in theaters on Dec. 15.
