Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out in theaters now, and if you want some impressions, you can read our Star Wars: The Last Jedi review or dig into a roundup of the biggest Last Jedi reviews from around the web right here. But if you're looking for spoilers, from the Easter eggs and little details you might have missed to full-on plot discussion, we've got a rundown of all our spoiler-filled features here.
This goes without saying, but everything below this story is a potential spoiler. If you haven't seen the movie yet, and you don't want to know what happens, then you should head back to the GameSpot homepage.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoiler discussion. In this video we discuss all the things that we felt went right and wrong with the new Star Wars. The new characters, the old characters and Porgs. This is also the video you'll find embedded up above.
Who is Snoke? We'll start light because, frankly, we don't have a lot of answers ourselves. But here's what little we've learned about the enigmatic Supreme Leader from the events in The Last Jedi. Essentially, Snoke is still an enigma, and now that he's dead, it's more likely that the only way we'll learn more is through expanded universe media.
What's the deal with those dice? Luke pulled a pair of golden dice from the dashboard of the Millenium Falcon, but you'd be forgiven if you didn't know the trinket's origin; we haven't seen them since the original Star Wars trilogy. The dice's significance is a mystery, though it's rumored that their the dice Han used when gambling to win the Millennium Falcon. But it's likely we'll get a more concrete answer in the upcoming standalone Solo film.
Who are Rey's parents? This question is, at least partially, still up for conjecture. But if Kylo is to be believed, Rey's parents are inconsequential characters we won't hear anything else about. While that seems like it could be a narrative letdown after Kylo Ren's reveal to be a Solo/Skywalker, Rey's lineage does fit into the broader Star Wars universe. After all, Anakin came from otherwise unremarkable beginnings. And then the orphaned stable boy at the end of the film seemed to show latent force abilities as well. So, we don't really know who Rey's parents are, but The Last Jedi seems to indicate that it doesn't really matter anyway.
Why did Luke die? Following his battle with Kylo, we learn that Luke was projecting a non-corporeal version of himself across the cosmos. But the strain of such a strong illusion took its toll on the aging Jedi. But it's likely this isn't the last we've seen of Skywalker. Much like the passing of Ben Kenobi and Yoda, Luke became "one with the Force," his body disappearing into nothing. So it's likely he'll be a guiding presence for Finn, and possibly Kylo, in the trilogy's finale.
