Do not read this if you do not want to go to the rabbit hole of Star Wars theories and revelations. Some of you may want to stay totally pure on J.J. Conclusion of Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker . We have it. But for the rest of you, this is damn important, so read on.
In the last TV commercial of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , Rey (Daisy Ridley) is in possession of something very important. The TV commercial that arrived online is titled “Sith Dagger”, but it is important to note that this comes from a YouTube page called Disneyland Experience and not from Disney or Lucasfilm. So it could be mislabeled. Here it is:
And here is the screengrab in which the Star Wars community is writing furiously online.
It is a dagger. If the title is to be believed, it is a Sith dagger. This seems to synchronize up to several Star Wars losses that have made their way online, even though the purpose of the Sith Dagger is anything but crystal clear.
The prevailing theory is that the blade itself is a Macguffin, or a weft device that seems important but in reality it is not. Some believe that there is text on the blade that needs to be translated. This, in turn, leads to the manipulation of C-3PO so as to be able to translate this forbidden verbosity. So, 3PO's red eyes that we saw in the previous videos.
Star Wars fans who saw the Clone Wars it also suggests that this dagger could be a substitute for something called The Dagger of Mortis, which could be used as a weapon to kill Palpatine. Or if the coordinates on the blade lead Rey, Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac) and the team to Palpatine, the “map” could become a weapon. But man, are we among the weeds of speculation here?
This did not prevent online fans of – you guessed it – being pissed that the blade was shown.
I mean, yes, it does. A little.
Sit down, Bevis, this is a multi-million dollar Disney franchise photo. I'm sure it will soon appear on the big screen. The biggest question at hand is WHY J.J. Does Abrams show it in a TV commercial? Of course, many fans have decided not to watch this video, since we are so close to the end. But this seems like a great revelation … even if it's a Macguffin.
Answers are waiting for us when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will open in theaters in December 11. Can you stay offline and wait?
