As anticipation builds ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, CRAIG HENDERSON shares and rates some of the best fan theories that he’s come across and some that he’s made up himself.
1. Broken home
Have Han and Leia separated? If so, I wonder who got the kids.
And could the kids be Kylo and Rey? Or could they be Luke’s kids? It’s like an intergalactic soap opera.
2. Where’s Luke?
He hasn’t appeared in any pre-film content. Has he cracked and joined the dark side? Is he dead?
More than likely is he hiding on Dagobah because the Force is still sleeping.
3. The new Han and Leia
I’ve got a feeling Rey and Poe will be the new Han and Leia.
And I don’t think Finn will like it.
4. The new apprentice
Could Kylo Ren have been one of Luke’s Jedi apprentices?
Or were Kylo and his ‘Knights of Ren’ all Luke’s students?
5. The Force is weak
The Force has been almost definitely been outlawed and forced to go to sleep, hence the awakening.
But what has woken them up? A Lego Darth Vader alarm clock?
6. One of the originals dies
With the new kids taking over, there will have to be some kind of ‘passing of the torch.’
The most worrying and common theory is that it will be Han Solo, probably because Harrison Ford doesn’t hide the fact he wanted Han to get the chop in Return of the Jedi.
