    What do you all think the MacGuffin will do in Ep. IX? Here are a few ideas that come to mind that I'm not even sure I like but could see happening.

    1) Rey uses the MacGuffin to give every potential Jedi the powers of a full fledged Jedi. We'll either get a montage of all the newly super powered Jedi across the galaxy rising up against the FO, or we'll learn that Rey and the Resistance have gathered a bunch of potential Jedi and when she activates the MacGuffin the Resistance all of a sudden have a platoon of Jedi at the ready.

    2) Similar idea as the first one, Rey uses the MacGuffin to temporarily give Force powers to many, (everyone?) in the Resistance.

    3) The MacGuffin gives Rey the power to channel all the power of the Force in the entire galaxy. Since the Force flows through every living thing Rey is able to harness the power of the Force to incapacitate everyone in the First Order simultaneously.

    4) Kylo will want to use the MacGuffin to prevent anybody else from using the Force in the Galaxy.

    The rumor that the MacGuffin is "delightful but somewhat controversial" makes me think it could be cheesy and you're either on board with the cheesiness or you're not.

    The green instant muffin thingy Rey cooked up in her AT-AT in the Force Awakens is actually called a MacGuffin. They are indeed delightful, but controversial on a caloric level.

    Ok so you started the food analogies because now every time I think of macguffin am picturing a giant mc muffin ! Lol! [face_laugh]
    Initially when I heard about the macguffin I thought darksaber ( bringing the mandalorians into the war) , Luke’s compass ( which am assuming allows the user to navigate hyperspace , time and space through the force ) or the kazerhath device ( mentioned in the Poe comics )that a light and dark sider have to open but nobody knows what it contains. All things that could potentially turn the tide of the war but MSW say the macguffin is delightful but controversial so am back to square one . [face_dunno][face_thinking]

    I dread to think. Some force related mumbo-jumbo probably. A set of scales so they can finally bring balance to the force.

    I’m hoping it’s something a bit more left field. Grievous’s robotic wang perhaps. It would make the ultimate saber hilt.

    I wonder if it could be a place, rather than an object. I'm thinking of the "Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight" game, where the characters were racing to find the lost Valley Of The Jedi. Whatever it is, I do like the idea of having an Indiana Jones kind of adventure in SW, and it seems like the sort of thing that's well-suited for JJ's fast-paced style, though I am a bit worried about the "delightful but somewhat controversial" description.

    Delightful but somewhat controversial brings to mind Leia’s space walk.

    I was hopeful of that for The Last Jedi prior to release. I had conjured up in my head that Luke was on Ach-To looking for the first Jedi Temple, especially when the visual dictionary was released showing Luke in travelling clothes with a knapsack and a compass. I figured that we were going to get a quest type story with Luke and Rey heading off in search of it, with Kylo and his Knights of Ren in hot pursuit.

    Instead we got Luke the miserable, tit-milk swigging fisherman who did nowt lol

    I hope that the McGuffin (if there is any) is other Force sensitives that both Rey and Kylo are looking for. Kylo-to gain a new apprentice while hunting down those who will be a threat to him. Rey to find Force sensitives, protect them, and eventually start a new Jedi academy with them.

    There was a rumor a while ago that the B-plot of the film is Kylo and the Knights of Ren hunting Force-sensitives. The guy who posted it was also someone who leaked story details for TLJ that turned out to be true, so take that as you will.

    Yeah I was hoping for kinda the same thing. Luke was on a quest to find something (the key to why the dark side keeps returning and even more powerful each time) and Rey was kinda a missing piece therefore they go off on an spiritual adventure together that not only led them thru the secrets of the first Jedi temple but also to other planets. What. Could. Have. Been.

    I got a feeling it'll be the threat of Snoke returning. It will affect both Rey and Kylo.

    A baby, or its pregnant mother. Thought to be the next Chosen One.
    A bit like Children Of Men.

    Playing on a Galaxy obsessed with saviours and heroes

    In the end, the kid just turns out to be just another kid.
