    Ten days ago, Jedi-Paxis, one of the moderators over on r/StarWarsLeaks, acquired a batch of leaked concept art images from Star Wars Episode IX, which although not officially confirmed definitely seemed legitimate. Now the same person is back at it, this time with several interesting tidbits about certain characters from the movie, coming from a different source who he claims proved his legitimacy in the past. POTENTIAL SPOILERS!







    Some of these Star Wars Episode IX rumors match with things Making Star Wars shared as well, and some are completely new, but also there are a few bits that sound a bit strange, so as always take these rumors with the usual dosage of the substance commonly found on the surface of Crait.



    From Reddit:


    • Luke and Leia appear in multiple flashbacks, including at least one scene where Leia is being trained or is discussing Jedi training with Luke. The outcome of the training is uncertain. It is also unclear if Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill filmed these scenes and will be de-aged, or if they are portrayed by younger actors and CG'd like Leia and Tarkin in Rogue One. My source has heard nothing about about Han appearing in any flashbacks.
    [​IMG]
    • Leia's role as Resistance leader is being said to be of a similar in size to her TFA role, perhaps even smaller, though her flashback scenes make her seem more present in the film. No confirmation on whether Leia lives or dies in the film.
    • There are solid red First Order Troopers, yet their role is unclear at this point in time.
    • Nien Nunb appears in an identical costume from the previous films and has a larger role than either TFA or TLJ.
    • The Knights of Ren do appear and each have a distinct weapon of choice as has been previously seen in TFA and the concept art for that film.[Moderator's note: We don't have any confirmation that the any of the Knights previously seen in TFA will or won't be appearing in IX.]
    [​IMG]
    • Keri Russell's character is a bounty hunter with an allegiance that is unclear to my source. Keri's character wears a purple (nearly magenta) jumpsuit with bronze/gold accessories, including an elongated helmet. [Moderator's note: Think about a fancier version of Zam Wesell and my source says that will get you pretty close.]
    • Naomi Ackie's character is supposedly Finn's sister. [Moderator's note: This point was presented to my source as factual like all the other parts of this post, but I believe it might be wise to take this one with a grain of salt until other sources can corroborate this particular bit of information.]
    • C-3PO has a scene where he holds military gear. It's unclear whether he actually fires any weapons though. [Moderator's note: My source doesn't recall exact details but 3PO appeared to have a bag or net (not unlike the Ewok trap net) and what he/she believes to be Chewie's bowcaster.]


    The bits about the red First Order troopers and C-3PO were mentioned before as well, so they are most likely legit. The info on Luke and Leia having multiple flashback scenes in the movie is welcome, and the part about Keri Russell's character is interesting too.



    As Jedi-Paxis pointed out as well, the part about Naomi Ackie's character being Finn's sister seems strange and hard to believe. Fans always try to make everyone related to someone in the saga, and I honestly don't think J.J. Abrams will have the time to include such a big plot point in the final movie of the new trilogy, but who knows? We will have to wait and see how these pan out when Star Wars Episode IX hits theaters this December.

    • Lots of nice info here but the one that jumps out at me is of course that Naomi Ackie's character is Finn's sister.
    • So we were hearing early on that her character was perhaps named Vera Calrissian?
    • If both of these leaks hold up are we gearing up for a Finn lineage reveal in IX
    • Obviously this would open up a can of worms with the "How?" question.
    • Does anyone remember how concrete the Vera Calrissian leaks from earlier? I guess is what we need to know here.

    That's good and quite interesting. I would like to see Han too and maybe a young Ben. But in the end these flashbacks shouldn't take much screen time. Movies are told in the present time.

    He probably dies :p

    I would rather have her as a KOR, but a bounty hunter could be cool too.

    Meh.

    She shouldn't be both. She should be either. I would probably prefer her being a Calrissian because that's much easier to answer than having her be Finn's sister.

    Yeah I totally get that sentiment.

    Personally I'm cool with the big happy family thing it's just going to be hard to explain if it is all true.

    Maybe Finn was taken away from Lando when he was young? Maybe losing him is why Lando has not been involved in the fight? Just spit balling...

    I think that of all these rumors that Naomi Ackie’s character is Finn’s sister is the most questionable. Some of it lines up with other stuff. It will be interesting to see whether this stuff pans out in any way

    The Naomi Ackie rumor sounds right to me. Granted that was my first instinct the second that I heard about the casting so that's probably the only thing driving that. As said above me though, either or is cool but please, PLEASE not both. If it is both we know what that would mean and in my opinion that would be the worst case of universe shrinking Star Wars has ever done.

    The one thing here that I'm having a tough time wrapping my head around is the part about the Luke and Leia scenes, for a number of reasons.

    1. How would they do it? Obviously there are ways to do it as stated in the OP but hasn't it been confirmed there won't be any digital recreation with Leia?
    2. De-aging could work but they can't have THAT MUCH Carrie Fisher right? How many scenes/clips, how much dialogue from Carrie made it onto the cutting room floor? I can't imagine there being a whole lot of it, especially scenes with Mark.
    3. Why? I don't really see a reason for these scenes unless they're part of something bigger with Kylo. Even if they're flashbacks that Leia has, I don't see the purpose for them unless again, the payoff is something related to or with Kylo.

    I think there's a possibility that his sister was conscripted into the First Order with him, but they were separated then or when they got older, so she could also be a former FO Stormtrooper that has rebelled against the Order. Makes more sense than him showing up on his home planet (or another planet entirely) and figuring out this is his sister.

    Also a good chance she's not his sister at all.

    I’m sure they could make it work. It just seems a little to on the nose for me. The flashback scenes are interesting. Not sure what to make of those. I like the sound of Kerri Russel’s character. MSW said they heard she wore a helmet. That does line up some with this rumor. I like this rumor the best of those listed.

    This is crazy, NUTS .... INSANE!!! .... I know
    Buuuuttttttttttttt .........

    Naomi Ackie seems to be a very good - if not the best - facial match for Ahsoka. The eyes nose, mouth all match IMO. Maybe it is all in my imagination:

    Aside from Ahsoka having light eyes - of course(colored contacts solve that)

    If they were going to use Ashoka in live action, wouldn't they want to use Ashley Eckstein? Since she's the actress that does her voice.

    j/c - Does she look like Ahsoka? They could easily still have her do the voice.

    Kind of in the face. I know the actress may be little short.
