Lately I had been thinking about how in Star Wars whether we’ll see the ghosts of Obi-Wan or Yoda in the future Star Wars movies. Problem is, the Obi-Wan actor, Alec Guinness is dead and I don’t like the idea of replacing the Force Ghosts with their younger selves, don’t get me started on Hayden Christiansen replacing Sebastian Shaw at the end of Return of the Jedi. I even heard that there was talk about him playing ghost Anakin in Force Awakens, so glad they didn’t do it though. But, how would we explain why these ghosts haven’t appeared in these new stories. I mean, they could use CG for Obi-Wan, “maybe”, but there’s a huge debate over whether they should and shouldn’t do that. But there is one way of explaining why the Force Ghosts haven’t appeared.
My brother had read some of the original Star Wars continuity, some of the Thrawn Trilogy at least. He explained that it began with Obi-Wan’s ghost telling Luke that this is the last he will see of him because his visits from the afterlife was only temporary and now he will never see him again, which made Luke wonder how could he continue without Obi-Wan’s guidance.
Maybe they could do that in the new trilogy, that we haven’t seen Obi-Wan or Anakin was because they’ve used up all their visits and can long see our heroes anymore. It would make sense to me and I think it’s probably best not to use CG, I mean they can do it if they want, I think it’s cool, but I would more likely try to avoid it. I mean, they already brought Thrawn from those books into the Rebels TV show, so they’re borrowing from the old continuity.
I mean, they can bring back Yoda, cause he’s a puppet or a CG alien and the voice of Yoda, Frank Oz is still alive.
It’s been a year since Force Awakens came out and Rogue One just came out, the Star Wars universe is about to get bigger and bigger. Force Awakens left us with a lot of questions, like “Who are Rey’s parents?” or “Who is Snoke and where did he come from?” A lot people feel Snoke just came out of nowhere, well first of all, I think the mystery of who Snoke is just as a mystery of who is the Emperor in (the first) Star Wars, he was mentioned but we never see him fully until Return of the Jedi. But again, who is he? I have a theory, I don’t think he’s Mace Windu or some stuff like that. My theory isn’t that he’s a character we’ve met before.
I think he’s an ancient Sith, dating back hundreds of years ago, farther back than Plagus and Palpatine. Before you argue, may I remind you that Yoda was like 900 years old and still kicking. That’s my theory, he’s a Sith Yoda. I mean, he does look old as shit, it’s possible that he could be as old as Yoda, kept alive all these years by the power of the Force.
But the question is, why has he been in hiding all these years? Maybe he was in league with Palpatine, but he betrayed him, because the Sith always betray each other, and he went into hiding like Yoda. If Yoda didn’t oppose him, why should he? But after the Emperor was finally killed, this was his perfect opportunity to step in and control the Empire.
I can’t wait to learn of who he really is. That’s what I like about him, I like the mystery and I’m sure they’ll blow our minds. Can’t wait, fingers crossed.
Okay, people have debated since Star Wars Phantom Menace about the “Midichlorians.” Many fans don’t believe in it because they feel it goes against what the Force is in the original Star Wars trilogy. With the new movie coming out, J.J. Abrams stated that they will not be in the new trilogy. So I have come up with a theory about them. It’s a debunked science like when people thought the world was flat or when people thought the Earth was the center of the solar system. But you ask how does this science change between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars (I don’t call it A New Hope, I call it by their original titles). At the end of Revenge, Yoda said that Qui-Gon had returned from the afterlife becoming one with the Force and will teach Obi-Wan to do the same. I believe, that after Qui-Gon died, he learned how to become one with the Force and learned that the Force is not science or genetic, but mystical. He taught this Obi-Wan and Yoda, and they taught this to Luke, which is why it wasn’t referenced in the original trilogy.
Basically, Midichlorians is a debunked theory that Obi-Wan and Yoda learned from Qui-Gon after he crossed over. That’s my theory and I feel it works so that all 7 movies can be canonical.
