In a recent video posted by Star Wars YouTuber Mike Zeroh, he says that he learned some information regarding Vader’s role in the story from anonymous sources at Pinewood Studios.
According to he sources, the first mention of Vader will come from a conversation between Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Vice-Adminral Holdo, who is played by Laura Dern.
“Holdo reminds Leia who her father really was and how he destroyed her son indirectly. Holdo mocks Leia countless times leading to them separating and splitting the Resistance into two teams with Poe Dameron following Leia.”
Supreme Leader Snoke is also said to mention Vader in a conversation with Kylo Ren. Then, of course, Luke Skywalker will talk about his father with Rey after she asks him about it.
This is all just a rumor for now, but one thing we know for sure is that we shouldn’t expect Vader to show up in the movie! I am curious to find out how Kylo ren became so obsessed with Vader, though, and why he chose to follow the dark path that he’s on.
Maybe we’ll even see some of Vader’s old artifacts make an appearance. I thought it was pretty rad to see that Kylo Ren had his helmet in The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released in theaters on December 15.
