    Since Pablo Hidalgo confirmed that Rey was brought to Jakku before the attacks on the academy and Rey was 5, I call BS.

    This doesn't reveal much news. But it what it does reveal I don't find to be accurate either. Sounds more accurate than the Reddit though.

    If what the 4chan user is saying (LOL) is true (LOL again) they wouldn't need to de-age Fisher, they could use her daughter, dye her hair brown and bam you got a young Leia. And Billy Dee Williams hinted that he could come back at the World Premier.

    Then there's this lol https://www.reddit.com/r/starwarsspeculation/comments/3y9y99/episode_viii_tidbits/

    General state of the galaxy:

    * After Hosnian was destroyed, a provisional chancellor was appointed, "Deak" (Benicio del Toro) has moved the remaining members of the Republic Senate and Military to the "Dune City".

    * Luke has been training Rey at "Magic Mountain" (Skellig Planet), while Chewie and R2 relay between them and the Resistance with the Falcon.

    * Luke refuses to see anyone, but requests that Leia provide information and maps that will help him find "Sunstone Palace".

    * Finn and Poe are tasked with finding more information about Kylo and Snoke for Leia, both to aid the Resistance battle, and so she can find more information about why her son turned.

    Bigger Spoilers:

    * At the opening of VIII, Kylo and Snoke discuss how to lure Luke and Rey out of hiding. Snoke has discovered something about Rey's past that will "destroy her path to the light". Kylo becomes suspicious that Snoke wants to replace him with Rey, but he goes along with the plan anyway.

    * Its revealed that "Deak" is a plant from the First Order, and is part of a plan to lure in any remaining "important" Republic officials as well as Leia to "Dune City".

    * The Republic people will be killed off, and Leia used as hostage to draw Luke and Rey out in the open.

    * Poe and Finn come across "Deah" (Gina Rodriguez), a former Knight of Ren.

    * Knights of Ren are not force sensitive, except Kylo. They're a cult of force worshipers. The best comparison I can think of is they're the dark side version of Lor San's Church of the Force.

    * Kylo joined them after leaving Luke's academy, and turned them into his own personal posse. "Deah" left as that was happening, and did not partake in the slaughter at the Academy. After the academy slaughter, Snoke made himself known to Kylo and then "disbanded" the Knights of Ren. Unknown if that means they were killed, or if they were actually just "disbanded". Also, "Ren" is not a person, but is in fact an ancient name for the dark side.

    MEGA spoilers, end of the movie:

    * Rey and Luke go out to save Leia after she's held hostage, and are going to engage in a duel with Kylo. Kylo drops the bombshell on Rey, and instead of fighting, abandons Luke and runs off. Without Rey encouraging him to fight, Luke freely gives himself up in exchange for Leia's safety. Poe, Finn, and "Deah" rescue Leia during this entire situation, unbeknownst to Luke. Kylo means to kill Luke, but something holds him back.

    * Rey takes the Falcon and flies off to the "Sunstone Palace".

    If we are getting truth here, then we get ANOTHER movie without Luke and Leia interacting....but I'm sure that it's 99% probably it's bs.

    Maclunkey. This seems very readable and legit. But it's not the movie I wanted.

    Only thing keeping me believing this isn't 100% and instead 99% bs is the fact Rian Johnson is at the helm I wouldn't put it past him to do something like this,

    It could totally be fake. But it explains a lot of things in ways that make complete sense.

    For instance, the Knights of Ren being the opposite to Lor San Tekka's church makes complete sense.

    If it is fake, somebody put a lot of time into making this cohesive.

    It did a good job making me wonder what Benicio Del Toro's character will be like though.

    Also, we essentially got the plot of TFA known to us a year from the movie, so I wouldn't be surprised if by 2-3 months from now we get the plot leaked once filming starts and the call sheet is known, just my speculation. Unless of course, they got tighter security around this film than TFA had.

    Well the movie does resume filming in a few weeks. So we're almost there.

    I sometimes think that these posts are here to test the waters with fans/movie goers with ideas and concepts in the work...

    It's possible, but regarding the plot described above by @Lord Skywalker I just remembered reading on another thread that Johnson was using two different movies as sort of an inspiration when doing the script for Episode VIII: the first one focusing on being on a search for some artifacts (well, apparently diamonds) and then getting surrounded (and having to survive some kind of an ambush). And the other one focused on soldiers/pilots recovering from a war and trying to regain their morale.

    They could fit, someway, with the description.

    It would make some sense though, to make sure they make a move that isn't going to be reviled by the audience we don't need another Jar Jar moment *shrug*

    This would be possible if the film were years away. With the millions of dollars spent on production, a studio would not post a "leak" on a message board and risk spending millions of dollars to change the movie during the midst of production.

    There's a few reasons why that plot makes no sense.

    1) Leia explicitly states that Snoke was always watching Ben and lured him to the dark side. Furthermore, Snoke refers to Ben as the Master of the Knights of Ren. Whilst they may well not be dark side practitioners, he clearly refers to them as an active organization by acknowledging Kylo as their Master.

    2) The whole Sunstone Palace thing sounds stupid as hell since it would just be another 'quest' film, which neither ESB nor AoTC have been. It's not a viable model.

    3) The ending with Rey flying off to Sunstone Palace is a little too similar to the ending of the Force Awakens and would be nuts.

    4) Rey abandoning Luke and running off is a direct beat from the Force Awakens where she does that with the saber. That's really not going to happen. She's embraced her destiny. At this point there may well be spoilers regarding her true identity, but she's done running and hiding.
