One of the major characters in “Star Wars: Episode 8,” who can use The Force, will be attacked in the movie and will be nearly killed, a new report reveals. The report also reveals that a particular fan theory about Rey’s father is not true.

[Spoiler alert]

According to a post by Mr_Ghostface_Lives, who previously got details about “The Force Awakens” sets and filming locations right, on IMDB forum; Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is not Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) father. The post asks the fans to watch J.J. Abrams’ movie again to understand the clues.

Another revelation in the post is that Leia (Carrie Fisher) will be getting less air time. The character will suffer a brutal attack early on in the film, but she will manage to survive by using The Force to defend herself. In “The Force Awakens” it was teased that she has knowledge of The Force, but she wasn’t shown to be using her powers the way the Jedi do.

Leia may be strong in The Force, but she is not a Jedi. Not much is expected to change for the character in “Star Wars: Episode 8,” as there isn’t any time gap between the Abrams’ movie and the forthcoming movie. The film is expected to begin right from where “The Force Awakens” left off.

The filming of the movie is nearly complete. Director Rian Johnson recently teased on Tumblr that the production is now “in the home stretch.” He posted a picture of a Jedi robe from the set along with the announcement. The robe appears to be that of Luke Skywalker.

“Star Wars: Episode 8” is slated to be released on Dec. 15, 2017 in Australia. The movie is expected to show the training of Rey to become a Jedi, and on the villains’ side Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is set to resume his training under Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis).
