Take this one with a grain of salt, but if proven to be true, then it seems like we’re in for an epic fight scene when Star Wars: Episode VIII arrives in theatres. According to the report in question, several main characters will battle it out, but before we go ahead and tell you who’s involved, we’ve got to warn you that there will be spoilers below.
Still with us? Good, because this one’s a doozy. A scene description has appeared online and it can be seen below. We’ll let you read it for yourselves, but it appears as if Kylo is out for a little revenge on Rey, who’s with Luke on Ahch-To (the planet that we see Skywalker on at the end of The Force Awakens).
Luke Skywalker and Rey are on Ahch-To just before nightfall as the sun sets in the background and it starts to rain. Kylo Ren and The Knights of Ren turn up along the coast. Kylo Ren continues advancing towards the heroes with the Knights of Ren. Kylo does not wear the mask here. Kylo has the same cross guard saber as he did in VII. Rey and Kylo Ren duel one-on-one and end up fighting alongside the cliff face over looking the nighttime water. Kylo wants his revenge after Rey disgraced him. The Knights of Ren go for Luke Skywalker while Rey is left for Kylo.
Luke Skywalker engages the knights on the beach while Kylo attempts to kill Rey. The first black knight has an axe and moves towards the Luke but is Force pushed away to his death after being thrown through the air. After Luke dispatches the first knight he ignites his green lightsaber. Luke moves through each knight one by one. Rey and Kylo’s battle moves up to the side of a cliff. Suddenly Rey is nowhere to be seen. She’s taken out of the battle, either wounded or appears to go over the side of the cliff. Luke Skywalker casually walks towards Kylo to finish him but Kylo retreats when he sees Skywalker and his crew defeated. Luke Skywalker is a badass Jedi and he’ll destroy your squad.
It certainly sounds like an epic scene, and while it’s unknown how it will ultimately conclude, this particular battle could end up standing out as one of the series’ best, given that Luke seems to be more powerful than ever before. We’ve never really seen him fully unleashed, so to have something like that happen in the film would certainly go over well with fans.
Either way, whether this scene ends up in Star Wars: Episode VIII or not, we have full confidence that we’ll be in for another epic ride when Rian Johnson’s film hits theatres on December 15th, 2017.
