Topps Card Listing Purportedly Unveils A Brief Overview Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Plot


Force Friday II is here, ladies and gentlemen, and it brings with it a slew of Star Wars goodies from all of your favorite toy manufacturers – namely Hasbro, LEGO, and Disney.

It’s a global merchandise event that’s set to continue through until Monday, September 4th, and while The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson has allayed fears that this massive launch would wind up spoiling the events of the December sequel, a new Topps Card listing does point to a brief plot outline.

First spotted by the eagle eyes of Star Wars News Net (via Screen Rant), these Base Cards supposedly herald the “Journey to The Last Jedi,” and though there’s a very good chance that each title is a vague, throwaway title and/or catchphrase to push sales, SWNN’s report does suggest that there are minor plot points to be found.

Take “Rey’s Solitude” and “Heroes United” as examples. Not only do they bookend the Base Card collection, but we assume the former is referring to Rey’s harrowing Jedi training aboard Ahch-To, while “Heroes United” could well be a reference to Luke and Leia’s inevitable reunion in The Last Jedi.

Also of note? “Luke’s Grim Perspective,” which surely has something to do with that foreboding line, “it’s time for the Jedi…to end.”

Lucasfilm and Disney have been remarkably tight-lipped when it comes to Star Wars: The Last Jedi – and rightfully so – but we do expect to clock eyes on the sequel’s first full trailer sooner rather than later. As always, watch this space for more.
