Newest 'GoRogue' Video Confirms ‘Rogue One’ Planet Eadu

In between all the viral marketing, Hasbro’s nifty, fan-made #GoRogue videos keep giving away major hints at the plot and world of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — and the latest one totally confirmed our predictions about the mysterious planet of Eadu.

We previously went down the Star Wars rabbit hole based on the Jyn Erso photo Lucasfilm released to celebrate 100 days until the release of the movie and speculated that Eadu was possibly the unknown rocky and rainy planet seen in the Rogue One trailers. What made it so interesting was that there weren’t even any references to anything called “Eadu” besides the name being slapped on the packaging of Hasbro toys, and it looks to stay that way.

Early on in the newest chapter of the #GoRogue series, Pao, another new Rogue One character we’ve only seen in marketing materials, screams, “This is Pao, I’m on Eadu, and I need backup!”

Thankfully Jyn and her band of Rebel spies are already there ready to help Pao steal a second batch of Death Star plans from a downed Imperial shuttle. But before they intercept the plans, Stormtroopers destroy their U-Wing containing the other batch of Death Star plans they’re carrying. Soon, former Imperial security droid K-2SO does a double agent switcheroo and gives up Cassian Andor to the Empire most likely to double cross them into helping the Rebels with their mission.

The problem with these #GoRogue videos is that we don’t know how much they’ll stick to the actual storyline in the film. They have all those sweet, sweet merchandising ingredients, but that doesn’t mean things will happen exactly as they do here.

Ponder that as you check out this awesome new Pao action figure:

Still, there’s no denying that we know the once-mysterious Eadu is a brand new planet in Rogue One, and it’ll probably be the place Jyn and company go after more batches of the Death Star plans that are so vital to their mission.

Rogue One hits theaters on December 16.

'Star Wars 9' Leak Reveals How Snoke Leads Kylo to Emperor Palpatine

The dead Supreme Leader could play a bigger role in 'Rise of Skywalker' than you think.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is approaching at lightspeed and the closer it gets, the more questions fans have about Kylo Ren’s role in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga. Popular theories have speculated that Kylo could redeem himself, be visited by the Force ghosts of his deceased family, or even be a double agent, but a new Episode IX leak suggests the man formerly known as Ben Solo could play a major in bringing Emperor Palpatine back to life thanks to his old (dead) master, Supreme Leader Snoke. Confused? Let’s dive in.

3 Reasons to Expect a Mace Windu Comeback in 'Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker'

A new fan theory suggests Master Windu didn’t die in ‘Revenge of the Sith’, but even if he did, a surprise appearance from Samuel L. Jackson in ‘Episode IX’ makes sense for other reasons.

In Attack of the Clones, Jedi Master Mace Windu said “This party’s over!” but what if the Samuel L. Jackson party is just getting started? Could Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker pull the most unexpected cameo of all time and bring Mace Windu back just in time to close out the saga? It might be a long shot — or the fan version of wishful thinking — but talking about Jackson returning to Star Wars at the 11th hour isn’t as crazy as it sounds. Here are three reasons to expect a Mace Windu appearance in Episode IX.

New Star Wars Comic May Confirm a Major 'Rise of Skywalker' Leak About Rey

"There is another."

'Star Wars 9' Leak May Confirm a Shocking Rey-Palpatine Rumor

We still can't believe it...

There are two things we know about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: 1) The Emperor is back and 2) Rey’s true backstory will probably be revealed. But what if those two details are more connected than we thought? Plenty of fans have theorized that Rey could be connected to Palpatine in some way, but a fresh leak claims to confirm just how close the two characters turn out to be in Episode IX.

'Star Wars' Snoke Comic May Reveal How Palpatine Survived

As George Lucas once said: it rhymes.

It’s one of the greatest mysteries until we see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: How is Palpatine alive? Darth Vader throwing his former mentor like he was Eli Manning is one of the most memorable moments in Star Wars history. But the Emperor has some role in the next movie, and a new comic book is making fans believe they know just how it happened.
