    Ok, I will say this and you can take stones and throw on me.

    ready?

    Only major surprise that will change everything will be that Snoke is Darh Plagueis the Wise, once most powerfull Sith Lord ever, who survived and went into unknown regions trough portal on Jakku and the Emperor Palpatine was after him. He evolved, transcended Sith ways and abandoned Sith ways just as Luke abandonig Jedi ways. He influeunces Life itself using the Light side to(that is why Palpatine never managed to find the secret of immortality).

    This will be shock moreso because it was officialy denied.

    Anything else they throw on old Star Wars fans will not be shocking in any way and would be at best caled a twist , and incarnation of The Chosen one also can already be perceived as a way to make Star Wars trilogies incarnate forever.(in that sence Shosen one Incarnation is economic-wise probable idea)

    you know... it will irritate the poop out of me if there is a huge 'sixth sense' moment in this trilogy that none of us saw coming.

    have we truly guessed everything?

    Luke's gone Bad
    The Jedi were bad
    Rey comes from bad
    my ideas are bad
    Snoke is Plaguies
    Rey [insert every name that's ever been in star wars - coz we've guessed it at some point]
    Luke's actually dead already.. an ACTUAL sixth sense surprise lol
    Snoke is a puppet.. of Thrawn, and it is Thrawn that is behind the FO
    Snoke is Kun, Nadd, Ragnas... Elvis! thank you very much

    one of the biggies...
    Leia was turned by Snoke.. Leia turned Ben and sent him off to assist Snoke. Leia sent Han off to Kylo.. knowing full well that her son needed to kill him to complete his training... i know lol, that's just nasty !

    that's like 1%, there are hundreds more.

    is it possible that we're not thinking outside the box enough? and that there's something we truly aren't considering?

    I think someone somewhere has posted on this forum an idea that would become "the shocking truth" from The Last Jedi. After all, someone guessed the name of the film. Since nearly everyone who's been active on this forum has at least once shared his personal prediction on something that will, in his/her opinion, happen in Episode VIII, there's bound to be a person that got it right. After all, there's so many twists you can make within a Star Wars film that would make sense within the confines of the Galaxy Far, Far Away.

    absolutely.... surely someone has guessed it... surely?

    'shocking truth' and i quote that very lightly, as we have no idea if this flyer is legit.. or how it was translated. i'm not saying the translation is wrong, but which language was it written in first? those words could mean a million different things.

    but if there is a 'shocking truth'... then i think that exceeds Rey's parentage, and even to an extent who Snoke is.
    a 'shocking truth' sounds bigger... broader. everything we thought... was a lie sort of thing.

    I'm guessing the shocking truth is that there is no shocking truth.

    Here it is: EVERYONE IS WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE!
    Rey really comes from a couple of deadbeats that lived on Jakku and took off without her because they didn't want a kid.
    Finn really was a Stormtrooper with no force powers who defected.
    Poe really is an Ace pilot with deceased former Rebel parents.
    Luke really left everything to seek out the first Jedi Temple after his students were murdered.
    Kylo really used to be Ben Solo and hated his parents, just like most emo kids.
    Snoke really is just some dude that was practicing the dark side and decided to recruit Ben Solo because he knew he'd be powerful.
    Leia really is a General leading a new group of freedom fighters because the Republic was corrupt and incompetent.
    Han really died on StarKiller.

    I only know one thing, if Snoke will be Darth Plagueis , the Wise, millions of fans would c.m right away , it will be historic moment recorded forever in the history of cinematography( and cinemas)....anything else will be "shocking truths", so we can in fact exclude Plagueis as a shocking truth because it is more like a expecting the Messiah to come than shocking truth.

    Only two things can shock me now.

    Snoke is Darth plagueis (Every hardcore star wars fans would freak out in the cinema).
    And that Lukes dies, oh boy that would be controversial

    After reading scores of fan theories (which I love BTW) Whatever the shocking truth is............it may well be an anti climax in comparison.

    I don't think they can match the ESB reveal. Lightning rarely strikes twice. I think they are going to answer some questions and people in the films will feel it. But viewers even if surprised won't be shocked.

    Also this reads like hype based on rumors.

    With grains of salt you must take this.

    In all of this I find the most importand main villain as "some dude" to be hardly satissfying explanation, I mean this are no B-rated movies.

    Was that really what made the PT such bad movies? I thought those were some of the only worthwhile themes that were explored. I guess it depends on which things you're talking about though.

    Interesting that Mark Hamill said the same kind of thing about these films. Something to the effect of, "you can't catch lightning in a bottle twice." I wonder if he was referring to the whole franchise or maybe something more specific like a twist that will have a similar effect of Darth Vader's reveal.

    Yes absolutely debunked .Its so much and so hardly debunked that its almost impossible to be coincidence. One reason why Plagueis is agressively debunked could be Plagueis story is so strong that it will compete other Snoke, so a dumping Plagues will make other Snoke more compeeling.

    But I think, no.

    It is what higher mind would do. Debunk it like an godamn Roswell.

    And than he turns Plagueis in the greatest twist ever , almost beating Vader's" I am your father".

    People will go after the movie in shock, wet pants of hardcore fans, buying books, reading novels, than go again into the cinema to see it again. Even China will be forced to learn who is Plagueis .

    They will do it. They are very ambitious, cunning, and ready to use all that is required to deliver a blow.

    I admire their minds.

    Prior to 1999, Emperor Palpatine was just some dude. Don't forget he wasn't even in ANH and was a hologram in ESB. No backstory. Nothing.

    Its agreesively debunked because it keeps coming up.

    You're over estimating the general audience's attachment to this character. 80% of the people int he theater would say "who is that again"?
