    Remeber that, if it really is the First Jedi Temple, we're watching a very ancient architecture, so it's normal that the decorations don't match perfectly.

    That isn't part of the Jedi temple. They're different sets. They're right next to each other in real life, but in the movie, they will be on completely different planets. That's the magic of film.

    I said "IF" for a reason :)

    How can you be so sure that it's not a Jedi facility? They are obviously two different sets, but this doesn't mean the location couldn't be the same (two different sets for two different scenes in Ahch-To).

    Do you really think that on a green lush, natural oceanic world there's just an outdoor complex that looks like a prequel senate room? The Jedi suddenly went from building stone huts to building colorful, perfectly made buildings, complete with floor designs? I'd say there's a very low chance that these are on the same planet, just from looking at them.

    I'm willing to bet that at some point, if not in VIII, then in IX that we will see a sprout of new growth coming off that destroyed tree. The symbolism is too strong for them not to do something like that.

    Maybe, if that tree ends up being a very important character moving forward, the last shot of IX will be that tree having a new leaf.

    I would love for the tree to be able to communicate with Rey and Luke, if not through speaking, through the force.

    I don't know, I think the symbolism will come from Luke planting the force-tree fragment he stole from the Empire while he trains Rey. He'd be literally giving life to the force.

    If you're referring to the Legend of Ood Bnar I'd say the character was both. I like to think he became rooted to the spot after a particularly long meditation or that a Force vision inspired a decision to save his energy for later time.

    If you're referring to the tree on set, who knows? At the moment I'm with the posters who believe it's just a large burnt out tree that had some significance to a past battle or a Living Force connection. It's interesting thinking about the themes, stories and connections SW invokes with trees. A Wookiepedia search on "wood" reveals 20 different types of timber on the first page alone!

    The white tree in Gondor exists as an axis mundi, for sure. But it's "root structure" was minas Tirith, because that thing was just a symbol.

    However, no one lives in the root structure literally in the Tolkein books like the three eyed Raven does, which is a show currently on TV.

    This tree may share similarities with the White Tree of Gondor (which was a symbol more than anything) and the weirwood tree that the Three-eyed Raven lives in (which has a much more practical application both in the books and on the show, albeit in different ways).

    We don't know what this tree is, but what I was referring to was the poster who was saying they might climb down into the root structure. It's a visual way too close to the Three-eyed raven's dwelling.

    Tolkein did a lot of things, but many books, from Terry Brooks (Elfstones) to My side of the mountain have used magical or at least extraordinary trees for a variety of purposes in their fiction

    The root structure comment was what I was referring to in my post

    So I was watching this video from the Clone Wars TV series and it reminded about the tree discussed in this thread. What's the chances that Luke will make Rey enter the tree to face her fears so that she can become a Jedi, similiar to the video below?
