Nerdist’s latest Live show leaked some potential spoilers from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Again, these are potential and should be considered rumors, but if you want to know details of a sequence that’ll be in the film, then please read on.
In the video (embedded below, starting around 4:20) it is revealed that General Leia will have an intense encounter with Supreme Leader Snoke in the first act of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This is described to be a “shouting match” between the two after Leia is captured by the First Order and brought to Snoke.
If this is in the first act, would it be the scenes to open the film? It’s very possible that The Last Jedi will not open on Luke and Rey on Ahch-T0 Island, but instead on Leia and Snoke. It also stands to question why and how Leia would be captured by the First Order. Could she have done this on purpose? We shall soon find out.
This would also be a perfect opportunity for Leia to show some Force action! Perhaps she and Snoke start arguing, and it gets out of hand or he threatens her in some way, and she knocks him down with a little Force push. It wouldn’t be hard for him to get under her skin. All he needs to do is talk about how he’s turned Leia’s son against her, causing him to kill her husband, and how he’s planning on killing her brother.
If this rumor is true, hopefully it’s just one of many powerful scenes Leia has in the film. We can only hope Carrie was able to shine in this film, as it is unfortunately her last.
What do you all think about this rumor? I can definitely see this happening and it sounds like a very exciting start to the movie. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
