In another non-spoiler post about Star Wars The Force Awakens, Lucas Film LTD accidentally spilled the beans on Star Wars episode VIII. When commenting on a George Lucas comment about how a certain character, who shall not be named (until 2016, then all bets are off-spoilers allowed), would have been in all continuing Star Wars films, the third Star Wars trilogy, episodes VII, VIII and IX, Lucasfilm LTD, now owned and operated by Disney via a $4 billion dollar deal, to The Wrap, “All main Star Wars characters of ‘The Force Awakens,’ will return in episode VIII.” What-What?
But if a certain character died, then how–? We shall quote Kylo Ren, “perhaps the use of a clone army..” Yep, that is the major spoiler for episode VIII, more clones. Unoriginal perhaps, but Supreme Leader Snoke is deeply connected with clones, as we shall see in two years. The Sci Fi Elements has confirmed cloning will be a major plot thread in Star Wars episode VIII from an inside source, one that will lose his/her job if no longer anonymous. The cloning plot will be much more than a single character. Episode VIII will include an attempt to recreate the clones from The Clone Wars, with Clone Troopers, from the Empire’s archives, as well as The Sith. Originally, Emperor Palpatine was a clone, but supposedly that is no longer Star Wars canon, meaning LucasFilm LTD has claimed that that will no longer be true in the future of Star Wars, in movies, comics and tv cartoons, but that could have been only diversion from the truth tactic, a means to throw off the scent of fan investigators.
‘Star Wars: episode VIII‘ premieres May 26 2017.
