Top Ten Predictions for Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

NuMetalManiak
So you guys definitely saw the trailer for The Rise of Skywalker. Some things will certainly happen, I guarantee it. Here's a community list you guys can add to. None of these are accurate of course. Some of these are based on the trailer, some aren't.

The Top Ten

1 Emperor Palpatine Returns

Emperor Palpatine thought it was so funny he needed to get a haircut.

Palpatine returning?

A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Yep this is for sure, but the question is, is how? - 2storm

Maybe as a ghost? - PackFan2005

2 The First Order falls

Given that this is gonna conclude the main movie series, we can probably expect a Rebel victory. - NuMetalManiak

Wouldn't surprise me. - codgtamk34

Probably. - PackFan2005

3 The Millenium Falcon is destroyed

While I can probably predict the demise of the First Order, it will likely come at a great cost. The Falcon clearly has made its mark as the true rebel ship, but it perhaps has overstayed its welcome. - NuMetalManiak

4 A Skywalker plays a big role

Well Rey is not really a Skywalker. Mark Hamill is doing the voiceovers, but he's probably a force ghost by that point. Still though, with a title like The Rise of Skywalker, we can probably expect a Skywalker regardless, playing a big role in a movie with the title. - NuMetalManiak

5 Leia dies

Given that Carrie Fisher is already dead, but still in a role here, I obviously can tell she's not gonna last long. I still somehow think she's getting an offscreen death considering that Carrie is already dead, but you can never really know for sure. - NuMetalManiak

That's what I thought would happen in Episode 8, but it could happen here. - codgtamk34

6 Rey and Kylo Ren have a lightsaber battle for the last time

The saga should end with a great duel. - PackFan2005

7 Lieutenant Connix leads the Resistance

She's probably a Mary Sue, since I never heard of this character, but given Poe's rash attitude and Leia's obvious conditional ambiguity, she'll probably be the most likely to lead the Resistance and perhaps get some actual development, Hopefully they don't make the mistake of keeping her a Mary Sue like Holdo. - NuMetalManiak

8 Force Ghost Showdown

This may sound stupid, but given that Luke's doing the voiceover and Palpatine's laugh at the end, these two characters are quite obviously in this movie. But given their fates, they're probably ghosts. However, as you may have seen in The Last Jedi, Yoda's ghost had the power to do something, so this could mean that Luke's ghost and Palpatine's ghost (or possibly another famous ghost! ) could come into play against one another using the power of the Force. - NuMetalManiak

9 Anakin's original lightsaber is repaired

I don't really understand why Rey is holding the blue lightsaber ever since it was destroyed by both her and Ren during their showdown in The Last Jedi, but I can guarantee that given it's probably the only blue lightsaber left, it's likely they managed to repair it somehow. Another theory is that she's using Obi-Wan's blue lightsaber but then again that was on the original Death Star when it blew up. Of course, with the destroyed Death Star remains, anything is possible. - NuMetalManiak

10 The medals from A New Hope play a role

Another silly theory is that the two medals that were awarded to Han and Luke at the end of A New Hope are gonna play a role, somehow. They weren't really seen past that, until this trailer came by. - NuMetalManiak

The Contenders

11 The Jedi Order is rebuilt again

Rebuild and then destroyed and the cycle repeats for all eternity - codgtamk34

12 Kylo Ren sacrifices himself to save Rey

Just like how Darth Vader sacrificed himself to save Luke Skywalker.

13 It will be a bad movie

I certainly think so - darthvadern

14 Kylo Ren Kills everyone and the First Order Rules the Galaxy forever

Kylo Ren Kills everyone and the First Order Rules the Galaxy forever!

15 Ezra will be in the movie
