Last month we saw some expanded Episode VIII character details that came out of the printed pages of author Jason Fry’s The Last Jedi official novelization, including the mention of a connection between Luke and a younger Snoke. The folks over at Comic Book Movie have combed through the Episode VIII novel and posted a breakdown highlighting all the pertinent revelations (which clears up the earlier article about Luke having a wife) that were not present in director Rian Johnson’s theatrical film. Check out the intro to their article copied below and then head on over to the source link for their complete list which is extremely handy for those of us who do not have the time to read through the novel ourselves.
Earlier this month, Disney released the official novelisation for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Featuring insight from writer and director Rian Johnson, the book included scenes which didn’t make it into the movie (or the upcoming Blu-ray release) and details on character histories and motivations which change how you’ll look at certain moments in the movie and what comes next for the franchise.
What you’ll find here is an in-depth look at all the biggest revelations and most shocking surprises from that book, detailing everything from Supreme Leader Snoke’s past to what the deal was with Luke Skywalker and even key sequences revolving around the likes of Han Solo, Kylo Ren, and Rey.
