    Leia's hologram could be the McGuffin. It would certainly fit the "Delightful/controversial" description that we've heard.

    So there's talk about a big marketplace scene in Ep. IX. What do you all think the good guys are doing there? Are they looking for a person or an object? Maybe both?

    They may not be quite sure at that point what they need as a market is a likely spot for a search

    I hope there's a guy in the marketplace that sells rope, lamp oil, and bombs. It's yours my friend, as long as you have enough credits.

    The doofy alien will probably be in the market place, right?

    I’m not ruling out the possibility that Luke does have a kid but it’s not Rey. Can’t say I’m hugely into this idea but I could see it happening.

    I hope the marketplace scene is more than just eye candy.

    Same here but I’m not holding my breath. Every time I hear the Making Star Wars guys talk excitedly about how big the fish market is I find myself thinking, “why does it matter how big it is? Isn’t it just going to be a walk and talk scene? The size of market won’t make that especially exciting.”

    If its this huge set as they say, I would imagine some major action has to take place here besides just walk and talk. Maybe we get a little city/market battle.

    Or maybe it’ll be so big that nobody will notice when Rey and Kylo sneak away to make whoopee.

    Isn't the large market place Batuu? I thought the implication was that JJ was probably instructed to include a big area in the film that would be analogous to the one at the theme park

    Costco advertisement placement. This is the controversial MacGuffun

    I wondered that myself. It fits the description perfectly. I thought that instead of playing a role at all in the film, she would have her moment in the sun with an inspirational speech via hologram at her funeral ceremony in the first act of the movie. But an inspirational, holographic message to all the Galaxy would be vital and could be a charming way to appease the fans who expect an important if not major involvement in the third installment.

    I won't be surprised if by the end of Ep. IX Kylo wants to burn it all down and he comes close to doing so. He'll activate something that will start destroying both the FO and Resistance but then something will pull him back to the light side and he'll stop the thing that's destroying the galaxy.

    I hope that we get a nice story that's adventurous and fun; not bleak and oppressive.

    So something like they are looking for the recording of Leia (hidden in 3p0's memory as R2 was elsewhere when she recorded it) that tells Rey that she IS her hidden daughter and must try to save her Brother from the dark side?
    kinda answers the 3po memory AND the parentage theory AND kylos redemption arc all in one hit.
    play that little recording at the start of act 3 in front of the big evil and watch everyone lose their minds!

    I'm oh so down with Rey Solo still, though afraid to think about it too much after TLJ. It would be amazing if Carrie filmed exposition with her that got cut out, and allegedly Leia knowing Rey's backstory *might* have been an early plot point that got discarded.
    As far as the broadcast plot point, it could be related to how no one answered their distress signal on Crait.

    JJ seems to be taking us in an interesting and weird direction with some new evolution of Force powers. We're getting these rumors of this teleportation sequence where Rey and Kylo port around to various locations as they fight.

    I think this is what the title refers to -- this "Skywalker" power of teleportation, and it seems like the ultimate way for Rey to destroy the First Order.

    Imagine the power of someone who can just port in to your headquarters like Nightcrawler but who also possesses a whole host of Jedi abilities.

    I think this will be the final conflict between Rey and Kylo, but I wonder how Palpatine fits into it? Is this power the only way to finally defeat Palpatine? If so, how?

    Bet Luke could have benefited from that. He did it old skool and had to die on a rock.

    Based on the images we have seen I'm not a fan tbh. My 8 year old so will love him but I'm hoping his part is very minimal

    Here's my idea. It addresses one of the most controversial aspects of the ST so far. I use elements from all 3 trilogies and tie them together.
    Any feedback is appreciated! (If this is the wrong thread for this, please let me know!)

    Looks like they go there in act 2 or at the very end of act 1. They might be looking for Kylo himself. Maybe it's where he reforges his helmet
