More details on Death Star III surface for The Last Jedi


Could we see a third Death Star in The Last Jedi? Say it isn’t so?!

During Force Friday II, the initial image of what is apparently the Death Star appears on the cover of a Star Wars toy.

Upon first thought, I originally dismissed it, even though it was fun to speculate for a bit.

However, more details have emerged, once again from The Last Jedi set of toys, of another Death Star.

"The Death Star “From the New Film The Last Jedi” from StarWarsLeaks"

Man, that super weapon just will not die.

Looking at the top right of the screen, you can see the caption: “From the new film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Now, seeing the Death Star once on a toy cover, I’ll take it with a grain of salt, but now that it’s once again connected with the upcoming saga film, it’s worth looking into very carefully.

After two versions of the ultimate weapon — well three if you include The Force Awakens and Starkiller Base — you think Lucasfilm would be done. Maybe not.

Hear me out on this wild idea, but what if Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order have numerous Death Star super weapons at their disposal. In the opening crawl of The Force Awakens, it does say that the First Order rose from the ashes of the Empire so that they would have access to the blueprints to the ultimate power in the universe.

I suggest we (don’t) use it. In fact, if I see Death Star(s) during the film, I may walk out of the theatre. Okay, you called my bluff, but I will not be happy.

I have faith that Rian Johnson will make this movie original and that we do not have to worry about seeing another rendition of the Death Star. Please let these toys just be a nod to the Original Trilogy and let’s be done with these moon/planet-sized battle stations.
