    what are the chances we'll return to Ahch-To at some point before all is said and done?
    • does Luke's compass have meaning or import to the story? does someone need to fetch it?
    • are the dice on Ahch-To? they belong on the Falcon!
    • all those porgs need to returned to their natural habitat!
    • will this be Ben's final resting place (dead or alive?)
    • is the Force tree truly gone or will Rey and Ben resurrect it?
    thoughts? feelings? strange animal or bodily noises?

    I hope we do & considering that it going to be a bit hard to keep Skellig Michael as a filming location secret (unless they just use sets) if they do go back it going to be confirmed quite early in production.

    Another reason to add to your list is I just want to see the Caretakers reaction to Rey showing up again:p

    hahaha! that alone would be priceless.

    i admit i have a secret wish that they have already filmed any Ahch-To scenes and so it will be a complete surprise.

    Depends if they visit Skellig. They might have filmed scenes previously when they were there. Otherwise Skellig is a world heritage site you need special permission and close off the island. I Am pretty sure we would know if that happened. However indoors studios rumours of fiming in Scotland I guess they can double for ach to.

    Even though I want the ST to end on Tatooine and with the binary sunset (either Ben and Rey or just Ben walking alone into the sunset), I do think it will end on Ahch-To.

    But I doubt it will play much of a role in IX. Furthermore EPIX is set to be filmed in Scotland (?). I don't think we will get two "green" planets in one movie. Instead of Ahch-To I could also see Jakku returning. I would like that more.

    between Tatooine and Jakku, i've been thinking about what if there's some awesome catacylsm and they turn one of these desert planets into something lush and beautiful again. that would have to be Jakku, i guess, given all the secret experiments going on there.

    just seems like either a planet needs new life or the Jedi tree needs new life.
    of Ben and Rey are the return to Eden, it seems like we need a big flashy symbol of a new start.
    but i may still be hung up on the whole Dark Crystal thing. XD

    This. And I'm holding my breath for Luke's compass being from importance as well as the KOR showing up on Ahch-To.

    i wonder if we'll eventually get an eu story that explains how the compass was what brought him to Ahch-To perhaps.

    If the only thing remaining from a tree is an empty trunk with no leaves before being burned down, then I think it's safe to assume that such a tree has been dead for quite some time. ;)

    To answer the question - I don't think so. There isn't really anything on Ahch-To that can move the story forward. I like the planet and love the Caretakers and Porgs, but I can't see a reason to return there. It doesn't also help that filming on Skellig Michael is a pain.

    that's kinda the point, though, right? life from death?

    probably not. the only reason i can see to return is that it would be a place close to the Force and away from other people where Ben could potentially go to sort out his atonement.

    Yes I don’t see it playing a major role in IX though all of Luke stuff is still there so at least Ben could have something other then Black to wear. Also as @FN-3263827 says it would be a way of ending the film with Ben in a secluded place to start getting his life back on track which he is going to need to do just dumping him back into the Galaxy at large is not going to be good for either him or the Galaxy.

    I’m still unsure about this Scottish filming rumours hopefully we will start to get more concrete filming info start to come out in the next couple of weeks.

    I agree with @Pawek_13 that I don’t see a return to Ahch-to. I also agree that there is nothing there to move the story forward. Luke is no longer there and can show up anytime where Rey is. Rey took the books out of the tree already. I see limited reason to go back.

    I like to think Ahch-To also means Act two. So, yeah there's no reason to go back.

    I'd agree if the tree was like the white tree of Gondor in Return of the King, i.e. almost dead but with a singular sign of vegetation. In case of TLJ, however, there's no such thing. The tree also is never regarded as a tree. The only time it is referred to by someone, it is by Yoda who calls it "a library."

    Dude, what if the tree gave up it's branches so the Jedi could use them to make paper?! Like, the tree is actually the books, and the books are actually the tree! Symbolism!

    Well, if we need a new Force tree to replace a burned one, Poe has it on Yavin 4. ;)

    Complete circle (and crazy talk): Resistance celebrates victory over FO, Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose AND Chewbacca receive medals. Poe leads Rey to the Force tree where she places the books inside while Force Ghost: Luke, Yoda, Obi-Wan, Anakin AND Leia watch.

    IDK what they'd go there for except maybe to see if Luke had anything there to help rebuild/build a lightsaber

    In my mind it has to end on Tatooine. Maybe with Ben and Rey looking into the binary sunrise? That would be fitting since Rey was on Jakku by herself, and Jakku is really just Tatooine with one sun. Put the two of them on Tatooine with two suns and that's a wrap.

    Merge these three ideas into one and that would be so good.

    I get it, but I hate sand... in all seriousness desert planets have been used an awful lot. Plus, it was used as an ending for Sith. I mean, you're just replacing the new characters in with the old.

    I dunno. I don't see a reason to go back as she checked out the books from the local branch of the jedi library. They could always come up with a reason for her to go back though. I guess she would have to return them in order not to have a huge late fee.
