So even if the Naboo guy is "real" this is another great example of how personal interpretation of data or visuals (any personal interpretation) can still render the info incorrect. (ie. He saw a picture, assumed it was Naboo but it was actually somewhere else)

Batuu would make sense because Batuu concepts look a lot like TFA concept art for "Exotic City" and a Jakku bazaar.

They've recycled a lot of concepts in the ST. "Exotic City" was already mined for Canto Bight.

Though I suppose they might simply have mined ST concept art for Batuu without featuring Batuu in the ST. But I just mean recycling concepts wouldn't be at all surprising. And there was an early rumour that the Disney attraction planet would have something to do with the ST, wasn't there?

ETA: I think they also mined those TFA concepts for Jedha, and concepts from the RO art book also seemed to have been reused for parts of Canto Bight.

ETA #2: And yes, of course they mined Tatooine concepts for all of this - Jakku, bazaar, "Exotic City". I suppose it's all just a big recycle-a-thon Laughing

Naboo type of spoilers is the worst cause it tells you nothing about the story. Just a location. Useless. Not worth trying to figure out a story from a location info.

Also, SW fandom is obsessed with funerals. remember Han's funeral on Canto Bight (cause it makes so much sense to have a funeral on a casino planet Rolling Eyes )? Good times.

These some Malta landscapes I found for fun and to compare it with Batuu.

Malta is not just the coast  lol!

I know that this probably isnt a popular opinion, but I dont think the ST will deal with Naboo at all. Yes, Naboo is beautiful,  but it was also the setting of some of the most cringe-worthy stuff in the PT. They might do Reverse Anidala,  but Ben won't be proposing to Rey next to Lake Como.  It might be a body of water, like a crashing seashore, but in won't be in the "I hate sand" place. IMO, there will be metaphorical references to the PT, but no visual ones unless it's Mustafar, which they already showed in RO, and maybe Coruscant for the NYC type place.

I'd love it if we saw Chandrila in IX. I keep thinking of that Scottish location reported a few months ago and it would be perfect for Ben's home planet.

@SoloSideCousin

yeah, they will not bring back PT planets. They even hilariously put the head of the republic on Hosnian Prime to avoid name Coruscant.

I'm not really attached to any known planets to be honest - It's a big galaxy, why not explore new worlds with different environments? Nope

I care more about the characters and character dynamics- the location doesn't matter...

Apparently MSW France is unaffiliated and not connected to Jason's MSW. Supposedly they posted a lot of fake stuff in the lead up to TLJ including Mike Zeroh crap. So yeah. I agree with @SoloSideCousin, references to the PT will more likely be metaphorical than visual. Naboo was also home to the most cringeworthy stuff in the Anidala romance. I do think there's a chance that Batuu or Chandrila might feature. The description of Chandrila really matches the rumoured Scotland location.

An odd thought occurs to me: What if, counter to expectations (because we're all thinking Kylo is going to set up camp on Mustafar) he actually makes the home base of the FO Chandrila?

It's kind of unlikely, but it would be just the kind of thing that I would chuckle about. Like, not even Kylo Ren is so emo that he wants to live on freaking Mustafar. Laughing

Hopefully! That would actually be a fanfiction I would like to read. There are things that don't work with the movies like Finn-Rose-Poe love triangle or Rey obeying orders, etc. Rey's devotion to obeying orders reminds me of something. Laughing



Spoiler:
I was just joking if you didn't notice! lol! With the exception of things that don't fit in with TFA and TLJ, and the fun read, and "The Jedi steps" in my previous post. But I'm not interested in longer version with cringy dialogues between Finn, Rose and Poe or Kylo and Broom Boy.

Actually that would be really cool. It would show that he is starting to embrace the authentic self, not the put-on Vader self. I mean he can still wear all black and love Scotland (Chandrila), lol.

If they go for Benperor, that would be great if he chooses Chandrila as the capital. If Renperor then Mustafar is a better choice. It depends on what they want for his character. I'm all in for Benperor!

I know better than to expect anything beyond tangential details from the books to make it into the films. But there's a little bit of schadenfreude that the a**holes who conspired against Leia and sabotaged her political career in Bloodline by linking her to Vader end up under the control of her DS son at the start of IX.

If the Naboo Leaker (Bothan-Spy2) does have any inside knowledge, he/she seems to be hinting heavily at a Leia recast and Leia likely surviving. These are in the comments, a ways down the original thread:

Bothan-Spy2 wrote:I'm really trying not to tease future leaks I'll roll out, but eventually you'll see why I don't think there will be a Leia funeral in IX.

I'm sorry for sounding like a tease, I'm really trying to keep these separate, but I feel it's appropriate to make that aside here.

and

Bothan-Spy2 wrote:That wouldn't make sense to me either. And I said in my post I don't think Leia's funeral (if there is one at all) will be on Naboo because I've only seen bright concept art of Naboo.

Sorry for the DP, but Bothan-Spy2 has a new "leak", and I figured it was best to create a new post to separate it from the previous discussion:

https://www.reddit.com/r/starwarsspeculation/comments/8i2g3a/a_tidbit_on_mara_and_leia/

Bothan-Spy2 wrote:Hello again, everyone!

There will, again, be SPOILERS for Episode IX in here, so if you want to stay spoil-free, turn away.

I would first like to sincerely apologize for the confusion on whether or not I am Bothan-Spy. That is something I should have anticipated and for some reason just didn't.

I am not Bothan-Spy. Just a leaker in the same vein as them. Now let's get on with the leaks!

Yesterday I posted my leak that Naboo would be featured in Episode IX, and I'm back again today with another minor-ish leak.

This one is sorta a two-parter with two minor leaks.

Part 1:

That casting call for "Mara" is going to be a stand-in for Leia. This was the main thing that indicated to me that Leia would not have a funeral on Naboo, as she is for sure in the movie in some form.

Part 2:

Hux, Kylo, and Leia will all share a scene together. As far as I can tell it's a scene with just them three but it's really impossible for me to know everyone that will be in it. The context of the scene I don't know. All I know is that you will see Kylo, Leia and Hux together onscreen in Episode IX.

That's all I have for now! Stay tuned in the coming days for more!

So...the "Hux, Kylo, and Leia" sharing a scene together could possibly fit with a "leak" from A User From The Forum That Shall Not Be Named, who claimed that he'd heard there was originally supposed to be a scene in IX where Leia confronts Kylo, and Hux sneaks up and tries to shoot Leia, but Kylo freezes the blaster bolt.

@ISeeAnIsland

Why are the commenters on that post all thinking that "stand-in" has to mean CGI Leia? To me it seems like "Mara" is a placeholder/code-name for Leia. Geez.
