Rey (Daisy Ridley) may be able to return home to Jakku in “Star Wars: Episode 9,” the last film of the new trilogy. Scouting crew for the film was reportedly spotted in Abu Dhabi, in which scenes related to the desert planet were previously filmed.

J.J. Abrams, writer and director of the next film, was previously in Abu Dhabi to film scenes of Jakku for “The Force Awakens.” According to a report by Mike Zeroh (see below), a location scouting crew were spotted in the city, suggesting that the main characters, or at least Rey, may return to this location.

There have been reports confirming that the movie will take fans back to Jakku. About five to six months ago, one of the extras in the film reportedly confirmed the crew members returning to Abu Dhabi.

There isn’t much reason for Rey to return to Jakku, though, because “The Last Jedi” has confirmed that there isn’t any major revelation regarding her parents or her background. She is just an ordinary person who doesn’t have special parents, but somehow has a lot of untapped Force energy within her.

Why, then, will the next film return to Jakku? Mike points out that this would be a good parallel to the original trilogy, in which viewers were introduced to the desert planet Tatooine in the first movie, which then returned to the same planet in the third.

The novels from the franchise have already confirmed the significance of Jakku, especially with the interest of Emperor Palpatine in it. The planet could be the key to getting more insight about Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), as it has some connection to exploring the unknown regions of the galaxy.
