A throwaway prop featured in The Last Jedi implied that the infamous Darth Revan might once again be part of official Star Wars canon. And if the Lucasfilm Story Group has anything to say about it, then the door is wide open for someone to make it official with a new Star Wars story in the future set thousands of years before A New Hope.

In speaking with Star Wars Show host Andi Gutierrez earlier this January, Pablo Hidalgo from the Lucasfilm Story Group explained the story behind all sorts of props that were in The Last Jedi, especially on Ahch-To, the location of the First Jedi Temple. The Lucasfilm Story Group is in charge of developing the lore behind various props that appeared in the movie and in the accompanying Visual Dictionary.

One of the more interesting items featured in Luke’s hut on Ahch-To is the “Recovered Jedi Crusader Pendant,” that Hidalgo calls a “captured trophy,” adding, “It’s just an interesting prop to suggest that [Luke’s] been out in the galaxy collecting clues and doing research on the history of the Jedi.”

But even Hidalgo admits that there’s so much more untapped potential:

In the discussion, Hidalgo says, “What I’m hoping is to be evocative enough that if somebody wants to pick up that thread and say, “You know what? I bet that’s what this story is,” then we definitely have the avenues and channels to tell those kinds of stories.”

4,000 years before A New Hope the “Jedi Crusaders” were also known as the “Revanchist” because they followed a Jedi named Revan to war against the Mandalorians against the wishes of the Jedi Council. All this is presented in games like Knights of the Old Republic and The Old Republic, both of which were reduced to mere “Legends” when Disney jump-started the Star Wars universe.

Here’s a clear look at the artifact, as featured in The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary:

In Star Wars Legends, the Jedi Crusaders meant only one thing.

As far as the non-canon lore goes, Revan eventually turned to the Dark side and became Darth Revan, taking up a red lightsaber for a time. But when his companion, Darth Malak, betrayed him, that lightsaber was destroyed in a ship-to-ship battle in outer space.

What if the kyber crystal Luke found was that exact crystal?

To use Pablo Hidalgo’s words, this might count as a plot thread that’s “evocative enough that if somebody wants to pick up that thread,” then they totally should as soon as possible.


Here’s the full Star Wars Show video that includes these and many more secrets from The Last Jedi:

There may never be a Too Many Cooks sequel, but that doesn’t mean the 11-minute Adult Swim sitcom parody was a one-time deal. If you ask the creators, they’ll point you to Final Deployment 4, a “spiritual successor” that aired on Adult Swim earlier this year, but if you talk to some of the actors featured in the original viral video they’ll immediately mention something else entirely: Too Many Cooks the Musical.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is bringing back a fun, old challenge for Week 7 of Season 6. Get ready to skydive through some floating rings, and if you need help tracking down their locations on the map or a video guide, well, we’re here to help.

The official description for this Fortnite challenge, which is locked behind the Battle Pass paywall, is “Skydive through floating rings, (0/20).” That should be pretty self-explanatory, but there are a few important caveats worth mentioning.

You better have loved every single second of Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3, because it might be the last of Daredevil anyone will see. Daredevil Season 4 is still a big question mark, with even Netflix likely still unclear on whether it will ever get a release date.

With the latest season of Daredevil in the rearview, it’s inevitable fans are curious to know when Season 4 will release. But within the same week Season 3 premiered and earned glowing reviews from critics, the Marvel/Netflix universe began to collapse with the cancellation of Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Photography on the third season of Jessica Jones and the second season of The Punisher are already underway, and previous reports confirm The Defenders was a one and done deal.

The most popular character in the new Star Wars movies is, without a doubt, Kylo Ren. There is literally no one who has strong feelings about The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi and also thinks Kylo Ren sucks. His narrative value is so universal it even applies to insane trolls who hate everything else about these movies. Kylo Ren has us all so bamboozled by his dark side Stockholm syndrome, that when Reylo ended-up being a thing, everyone was pretty much fine with it. That’s why it’s so sad is that Kylo Ren will very likely die in Star Wars: Episode IX.
