Crazy Star Wars Fan Theories that Might Be True


The Top Ten

1 K2SO Doomed His Entire Line Of Droids

One of the breakout stars of Rogue One was K2SO, the pleasant-yet-sinister droid voiced by Alan Tudyk. K2SO was formerly an Imperial droid, but was reprogrammed to serve the Rebellion. The ending of Rogue One, however, ensured that the Empire now had a pretty good idea of which type of droid played a role in the Rebellion’s victory.
This would likely lead to the Empire shutting down production of that line of droids, due to their susceptibility to hacking. We never see any similar droids in the "later" films, which means K2SO probably doomed his droid line to obsolescence. - B0S5J4M3S

2 Obi-Wan Totally Recognized R2-D2 And C-3PO

If the in-film canon and Expanded Universe (now Legends) of Star Wars have proven anything, it’s that R2-D2 and C-3PO are around for basically every important event in the galaxy's history. That’s what makes it so confusing when Obi-Wan appears to not recognize the droids when he encounters them in A New Hope. Or does he?
The crafty old Jedi responds to Luke saying R2 belongs to him with, “I don’t seem to remember ever owning a droid,” which is technically true, because Obi-Wan never did “own” R2 or C-3PO. Furthermore, Obi-Wan makes a comment that suggests he’s more than aware of R2’s impressive capabilities. Obi-Wan casually mentions that R2-D2, "should be able to interpret the entire Imperial network," when he plugs him into the docking bay control room. That's an insane thing to assume about a random astromech droid if you had never met him before.
So, why then did Obi-Wan never tell Luke the story of R2-D2 and C-3PO? Maybe he’s just saving Luke from ...more - B0S5J4M3S

3 Chirrut Imwe Shows Why Storm Troopers Have Bad Aim

If you had added even a small description in this list, it would have gotten the HQ title... - styLIShT

People love to laugh at Storm Troopers (at least the outer space kind). For an elite military force from an evil, galaxy-spanning empire, the Storm Troopers are ridiculously incompetent. They go down easily, and they can’t seem to hit anything on their way down. Their fancy, high-tech blasters might as well shoot glitter. Troopers are great at incinerating Luke’s foster parents, but somehow fail to hit a single protagonist throughout the entire series.
Thankfully, Rogue One ’s Chirrut Imwe may have finally explained why this is. Imwe makes a bold stand against an onslaught of blaster fire at the climax of the film, walking through it unharmed while chanting about the Force. He avoids getting hit until he accomplishes his goal, while his partner Baze Malbus gets shot pretty much immediately afterwards. Imwe was Force-sensitive, while Malbus was not.
Therefore, the Force may provide a shield of sorts that is particularly good at deflecting blaster bolts. This would explain ...more - B0S5J4M3S

4 Darth Plagueis Is Snoke

If Snoke does turn out to be a Sith Lord, many believe he’ll be a Sith that we already know. Some have speculated that he is actually Emperor Palpatine or even Darth Vader (somehow), but the best candidate seems to be Palpatine’s former master, Darth Plagueis.
Plagueis, as you'll recall if you didn't fall asleep during the prequels, reportedly discovered the secret to extending life and preventing death. Palpatine apparently stole this technique when he murdered his mentor. But how does one truly kill someone with power over life and death? Perhaps Plagueis lived on to continue spreading the gospel of the Dark Side as Supreme Leader Snoke. According to Adam Underkofler's Youtube channel, one needs only to listen to their theme music to hear the truth. - B0S5J4M3S

5 Chewbacca And R2-D2 Are Spies

Han Solo was a loner who had to be cajoled into joining the rebel cause, but his furry co-pilot Chewbacca may be a different story. After all, it is Chewbacca who Obi-Wan first approaches in the Cantina when seeking a ride to Alderaan. Chewbacca is seen fighting alongside Yoda in Revenge of the Sith, and there’s a good chance he was actually an agent of the Rebellion all along, unbeknownst to Han. This theory has been kicking around the Internet for years. People just love that Wookie.
It’s even easier to believe (and perhaps more plausible) that R2-D2 was a secret agent as well. The droid conveniently happens to be around for everything of importance, and Leia entrusts him with an incredibly precious mission. Also, R2 seems, like, aggressively upgraded for an astromech droid. You don't need that kind of hardware if you're basically a glorified GPS. - B0S5J4M3S

6 The Asteroid Field From Empire Strikes Back Was From A Death Star Test Planet

To some, the asteroid field that Han Solo deftly navigates in Empire Strikes Back seems a little... off. After all, the crew of the Millennium Falcon soon learn that the asteroid they land on houses a giant space-worm. So, you know, that's super weird. Seriously, asteroids are just hunks of dead rock floating around space, and they generally can’t harbor life.
However, it might make more sense if the “asteroids” were actually chunks of a recently exploded planet. We saw in Rogue One that the Empire tested the Death Star a few times before destroying Alderaan, so maybe the asteroid field was the result of another such test. - B0S5J4M3S

7 Rey Is A Palpatine

While fans are clamoring to find out who Rey's parents are, it's possible they won’t like the answer when they get it. There’s some reason to believe that Rey is actually a Palpatine, making her a Sith descendant and at least half Shar-Pei. After all, Sith don’t adhere to the same moral code as Jedis, which makes it entirely possible Emperor Palpatine was “creating life” all over the galaxy.
Rey employs a few lightsaber techniques that are characteristic of Palpatine’s fighting style (in fact, they're almost identical), and her musical score bears some similarities to his. Unfortunately, this theory also requires us to imagine the Emperor having sex, and that’s not a pleasant thought. - B0S5J4M3S

8 Rey Is A Solo

I know I already did Rey is a Palpatine but people may think she is a solo to. Perhaps Rey is a Skywalker by blood, but not by name. Some have speculated that Rey is actually the daughter of Han Solo and Leia Organa, which would make her the sister of Kylo Ren. Kylo
does freak out when he hears mention of “a girl,” and Rey does seem to bond with supposed father Han very quickly.
She even shows a real aptitude for piloting the Millennium Falcon, and maybe there’s a genetic component to that. Of course, if this is true, it creates a further question of why Han and Leia abandoned their daughter on a desert planet. Maybe she was just, you know, a super annoying toddler? - B0S5J4M3S

9 Han Solo committed suicide

I don't know if this is true, but I've heard rumors that Han Solo may have ignited Kylo's blade on himself and commited suicide! Why?! This theory makes this death scene even sadder! - JaykobWalson

10 Boba Fett Is Snoke

At this point we don't know or really care cause he is DEAD, I think he isn't or will come back to life, even though it makes the Plagueis thing more realistic but still... Supreme Leader Snoke is a font of fan theories. Hell, after Rey he's the character audiences are the most curious about. Besides the fact that he has an exceptionally silly name and is probably not a giant, we really don't know much about the leader of the First Order.
We do know that Snoke appears to be horribly disfigured, almost as if he’s been half-digested. What if he was? Snoke could be Boba Fett returned from the depths of the Sarlacc Pit. This would explain why Snoke seemed to make such a specific effort to corrupt Han Solo’s son, as Boba has pretty good reason to want revenge on Han. Incidentally, it would be super rad if he still traveled around via jetpack. Who wouldn't follow a guy with lit rockets sticking out of his back? - B0S5J4M3S

The Contenders

11 Darth Jar Jar

YOU NEVER KNOW! This is perhaps the ultimate
Star Wars fan theory, because it manages to take something wildly unpopular, Jar Jar Binks, and justify his existence in a truly awesome way. Jar Jar was actually a Dark Force-user the entire time, and that he secretly used his powers to influence the events of the saga. He is the one who eventually convinces the Senate to give supreme power to Palpatine, and can often be seen idly moving his big, stupid mouth in the background as characters make key statements.
The greatest piece of evidence of all is the scene in which Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Jar Jar flee from a giant carnivorous fish in a space-submarine. Jar Jar appears to pass out, and shortly thereafter an even larger fish (with Jar Jar-colored eyes! ) shows up to conveniently eat their pursuer. Then Jar Jar immediately wakes up, smacking his lips. Case closed. - B0S5J4M3S
