The official Star Wars: The Last Jedi novel doesn't hit stores until March 6, but some fans have managed to get their hands on copies a little early, and have spilled the juicy info online.

Most of the character-related stuff is pretty vague, and really only offers hints and suggestions as opposed to solid confirmation - but there are still some very interesting details relating to Luke, Snoke and Leia that help flesh out their roles in the movie, and may also give us some idea of what we can expect to see in Episode IX.

Rey And Kylo Sitting In A Tree...

The movie already makes it clear that Kylo Ren has complicated feelings about Rey, but there's a hint in the novel that the former Ben Solo may actually be in love with his light-side counterpart and wants her as more than just an ally. Could this factor into their dynamic in Episode IX?


More On Snoke

It doesn't look like we'll be finding out a whole lot about Snoke's mysterious backstory, but apparently the novel does confirm that the extremely powerful force-wielder gained his unprecedented abilities by learning of "hidden Force powers in the Unknown Regions." There's also a suggestion that he wanted Rey to become his new apprentice, which actually contradicts what happens in the film.
 

Luke Hears a Familiar Voice Just Before He Dies

In the novel, just before Luke becomes one with the force he hears a voice telling him to "let go." Though it's not made clear, this is presumably his old mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi. There's also a similarly-tear-inducing moment between Leia and Chewie on The Falcon right at the end.



 

Yes, Luke Knew He Would Die After Confronting Kylo

Though the movie strongly implies this anyway, the novel reportedly makes it very clear: Luke knew he wouldn't survive force-projecting himself all the way to Crait in an effort to save wat remained of The Resistance, and fully intended it to be his final act.

Or at least, she may not survive the long-lasting effects of it. Apparently, the novel reveals that The Resistance General actually contracted solar radiation and hypoxia after her little Mary Poppins trick, which could be used to explain the character's absence in Episode IX.

Could truly care less. If you need to use tie ins, comics, and books to make sense of your film, then it wasn't good on its own merit.

That being said, if episode 9 would actually go deeper into some actual lore and reveal some new information, i'll care. Until then, this trilogy is a recycled bust to me.

@Ravenous - “Could care less” that implies that you do actually care a small amount.

The phrase is “Couldn’t care less” as that implies that you do not care at all, if you would like to inform the rest of America that would be great

@Ravenous - Literally most major blockbusters get tie-in books. God, Star Wars fans are so whiny.

I can't even bring me to care about the franchise anymore after the last jedi. Shame too, because I really enjoyed this franchise.

If Ben and Rey turn out to be twins, they need to do the obligatory incest kiss first. Tradition is important.
