Someone claiming to be connected to someone at Lucasfilm has apparently leaked an iconic scene from the upcoming film. As should be the case with all unverified claims, we will take this leak with a pinch of salt.
A Redditor 4LOM has claimed that there is a Star Wars 9 scene featuring Finn, Poe Dameron, and Rose Tico. Further, DJ is back and is as untrustworthy as ever. However, he has stayed in touch with the Hutt clan. The new supremo of the crime family of Jabba the Hutt is his son, Rotta. The new scene depicts the trio eating with the Hutt gang, and that’s being compared to the dining scene from The Temple of Doom. However, it is not yet revealed whether they will eat monkey brains in Star Wars 9 or not.
The trio has had big-time trust problems with DJ, and that’s obvious considering his actions in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Star Wars 9 is reportedly going to feature a time leap, so looks like Finn and Rose are still against DJ, but, Poe thinks of him as a “necessary evil.” The scene ends in chaos when the First Order crashes in, making everyone including DJ and the trio to flee. That’s what has been leaked so far, but, if it is true, then it might be a fantastic way to reintroduce the Hutts into the Star Wars.
As stated earlier, this is just an unverified rumor. These are still early days to get information like this regarding the Star Wars 9. However, the timing makes it a bit credible. We also know that J.J. Abrams is notorious for deliberately leaking false information to misguide fans, and that’s not ruled out in this case. Rotta Hutt joining the party seems to be too good to be true. All we can do is to wait and find out.
Other Star Wars 9 related news is about the working title of the film which was trlXie after earlier being titled, Black Diamond. There has been no explanation regarding the name change, but, it is still a working title, so no concerns here. As far as the movie’s tone is concerned, J.J. Abrams has said that he is not going to be impacted by the negativity related to The Last Jedi impact Star Wars 9, implying that Rose Tico haters will get a lot more of her, especially if this report is genuine. Star Wars 9 is scheduled to release on December 20th, 2019 and you can read the whole report yourself at Reddit.
