Trading Cards Reveal Plot Outline For Star Wars: The Last Jedi


In these seemingly endless months of waiting for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans have been clutching at every hint they can find about what we can expect from the much anticipated sequel. Thankfully, the steady deluge of merchandise for the movie has provided many clues, be it from action figuresLEGO boxsets or even coloring books. The latest such release might be the most useful yet, though, as it looks like it contains a point-by-point breakdown of the film’s plot.

As first shared by GeekyTyrant, Topps Trading Cards have provided a list of the titles for their upcoming Last Jedi set. Judging by these descriptors, it seems that they’re in chronological order and run through the major moments of the movie from start to finish. They don’t reveal any massive details, but if you’re particularly spoiler-phobic, you might want to look away now.

For the rest of you, here’s the list – beginning with the opening “Rey’s Solitude” and ending with the thrilling-sounding “Heroes United.”

  • 91 Rey’s Solitude
  • 92 General Leia Organa
  • 93 Rey and her Lightsaber
  • 94 On Crait
  • 95 Rushing to Attack
  • 96 Finn’s Recovery
  • 97 Poe Responds
  • 98 The Fury of Kylo Ren
  • 99 Shards of the Past
  • 100 Luke’s Grim Perspective
  • 101 Ski Speeder Assault
  • 102 Walkers Incoming
  • 103 The Resistance
  • 104 The Resistance X-wing
  • 105 The Resistance A-wing
  • 106 The Battle Commences
  • 107 Frigates Under Fire 1
  • 108 The Resistance Vs. The First Order
  • 109 The Millennium Falcon Flees
  • 110 Heroes United

Like we said, there are lots of intriguing bits and pieces in here, but nothing too major. For starters, though, we can now safely say that there will be a grand battle between the Resistance and the First Order in the third act, but we probably could have guessed that, anyways. Likewise, “Luke’s Grim Perspective” presumably describes the moment already made famous in the trailer: where Luke announces that he thinks the Jedi should end.

Of course, a few things are still left shrouded in mystery. For instance, what causes “The Fury of Kylo Ren” and who’s it directed at? Also, why does the Millennium Falcon flee when it’s presumably needed in battle? And, just who are the heroes who unite by the end? The obvious answer would be Rey and Finn, as the events of The Last Jedi look to keep them busy with their own separate missions. However, old school fans will no doubt be hoping that this refers to Luke and Leia, with the brother and sister being reunited on screen for the first time in 30 years. Please, please let it be that option.

One way or another, all will be revealed soon, as Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.
