John Boyega’s jaw dropped after British morning show host Holly Willoughby spoiled the return of a major Star Wars character in The Last Jedi.
Boyega who plays Finn in the upcoming Last Jedi was absolutely stunned. After Willoughby reveals the return, Boyega turns around, looks over his shoulder, and then returns back to the camera.
He then says, “Holly, Holly, you can’t tell the fans exactly what happens.” Willoughby attempts to defend her blunder saying, I don’t know, I don’t know what happens. But that is out there. In a far, far, galaxy far away.”
Boyega then tries to do some damage control, “You know what. Things happen … I can’t reveal that … Maybe it was just another short alien.”
**Warning potential spoiler for Star Wars: The Last Jedi follows**
The short alien they are referring to is not Maz Kanata, who was introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s none other than Jedi Grand Master Yoda.
She doesn’t go into any details on how Yoda returns, but it’s more than likely he returns as a Force Ghost much like we saw with Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. In A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi falls to the lightsaber of Darth Vader, however, he becomes a Force Ghost and helps Luke trust in the Force. His trust in the Force allows him to destroy the Death Star. In Empire Strikes Back, he is once again a voice in Luke’s head who guides him to Yoda on Dagobah. He then reveals himself to Luke on Dagobah and attempts to persuade him to continue his Jedi training instead of rescuing his friends from the clutches of Darth Vader and the Empire.
It’s more than likely Luke Skywalker may be communing with Yoda on Ahch-To .
What do you think? How will they bring Yoda back in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
