The latest buzz about the upcoming “Star Wars 8” film has revolved around some speculations about the grandfather of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).


Why the question? What could be the relevance of this to the entire plot of the eighth installment of the J.J. Abrams project?

While in the past, several fans of the movie series were talking about a number of theories on the identity of the real father of Rey (Daisy Ridley), the recent update has suggested that they have become interested on digging about the lineage of the remaining Jedi.

According to Morning Ledger, the still untitled “Star Wars 8” would reveal that Snoke could be the man behind the existence of Luke Skywalker’s father, as claimed by one fan theory.

YouTube channel Star Wars Theory has reportedly posted a video which declared that it has gotten a piece of the script of the highly-anticipated successor of “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens.”

Based on the video, it was detailed how Luke Skywalker and his supposed grandfather met. Accordingly, Rey was held captive by Snoke. However, the dark character eventually revealed that he just used Rey to lure him.

This got the Jedi curious, thus, he asked Snoke how he knew him, to which the latter replied, “What father does not know his own creation?”

Amid the fact that some fans may find it hard to believe this theory about “Star Wars 8,” the online publication pointed out that there are certain things that may cite the possibility of a blood relation between Luke Skywalker and Snoke.

It was noted that since the series started, there has never been an Anakin Skywalker “biological father” ever introduced.

Meanwhile, it was emphasized that with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy’s declaration that “Star Wars” would always be about the Skywalkers, the said fan theory might just be the missing piece to solve the mystery behind the unnamed grandfather of Luke Skywalker, which would reportedly be revealed in “Star Wars 8.”

Aside from the still unidentified patriarch of the Jedi family, Heavy also narrated about the mysterious background of Snoke.

The site shared that the rumored father of Anakin could really be “Darth Plaguies, the Sith Lord who taught Darth Sidious (a.k.a. Palpatine) everything he knew.”

Considering these thoughts about the possibilities happening in “Star Wars 8,” could it mean that Luke Skywalker would eventually side with the bad?
