In a report by Making Star Wars, they reveal that a major scene was shot at Pinewood Studios which involves the death of a beloved character.
***MAJOR SPOILERS AFTER THIS POINT***
According to the site’s trusted source, here is the run down of the scene that was filmed recently at Pinewood:
- This sequence takes place on the ramparts of The Evil Caste. - Han Solo is hiding. - He decides to reveal himself to Kylo Ren. - Finn, Rey, Chewbacca and BB-8 stop in their tracks. - They watch as Han Solo confronts Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren silences the conversation forever. - Chewbacca lets out of a barrage of angry roars and laser blasts. -Kylo Ren flees the scene. -Explosions. -Stormtroopers file in and Finn and Rey are forced to flee. -More explosions. -BB-8 and Chewbacca flee to the Falcon.
This seems to suggest that Han Solo will meet his end in newest Star Wars film.The site also says that this is the last scene we see Han Solo in.
The site also speculates that Kylo Ren’s (believed to be played by Adam Driver) appearance in the first teaser for the film, takes place right after these events. Also, the site also claims that rumors that Luke Skywalker is involved in the scene cannot be verified.
Making Star Wars also released a story today, claiming that Kylo Ren is either Han Solo’s son or the son of a man killed by Solo. If it turns out that Han Solo killed Ren’s father, it would explain why he kills him.
There is also speculation about Domhnall Gleeson and Daisy Ridley’s relation to Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. According to the site, neither of them are related to the original characters.
They come to this conclusion due to Domhnall Gleeson’s character, The General, firing a super weapon and that it would be impossible for him to redeem himself after such an act.
Ridley’s character is also believed not to be related to the original cast members because when her character Rey and Finn come across the Millennium Falcon, she calls it “a hunk of junk” which implies that she has never seen it before.
Nothing has been confirmed by LucasFilm, Disney or the film makers.
