Star Wars: Will Episode IX borrow a plot point from a recent novel?


Is Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker re-using a tactic from a recent novel? It’s definitely possible with the latest leak.

I always feel like Disney likes to tie up everything with a pretty bow in Star Wars. A small connection in the comic leads to another connection in a book that leads to a massive reveal in a movie.

It’s not necessarily true, but it still feels like inconsequential.

More from Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

In a leak posted for Star Wars: Episode IX, there was a line that gave me a pause because it reminded me of something from the recent novel Master & Apprentice.

The leak states that red Sith Troopers were all on a fleet floating through space, waiting to be discovered. They report to the Emperor and with Palpatine presumed dead, they had no where to go.

In Master & Apprentice, Pax Maripher spent many of formative years stuck in space, floating on a ship with a bunch of droids. He was the only human on board, so he is awkward and has odd social queues because he learned them from the 3PO units.

It’s not the awkwardness to note, but that Star Wars has now used the vehicle of a ship floating in space with no where to go already.

We saw it in the novel, and now could potentially see it The Rise of Skywalker.

It wouldn’t be the first time we have seen or even suspected things we see in books or comics to wind up in a movie.

Many fans theorize Palpatine found life after death by imbuing his soul or life force in an inanimate object, which we have seen inThe Clone Wars and the Darth Vader comic.

So, it wouldn’t be surprising if it winds up popping up again and a bit of the Sith Trooper leak winds up being true.
