Instead, he wants to rule the galaxy with Rey.
5 LUKE BECOMES OBI-WAN KENOBI

Harrison was more prominent in VII I'm a celebrity in this one, and she should stand out more in the last. " Fisher finished filming Episode IX before her death and it's her last movie role.
2 BOBA FAT SURVIVED THE SARLACC PIT
For over 30 years Star Wars the theory has been growing ever larger. Fans refused to believe that the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy had disappeared. Boba Fett might have been a villain, but the fans loved him anyway. His apparent decline disappointed the fans, however. Episode VI : Return of the Jedi drops Fat into the Sarlacc Pit and never returns. The fans were sad to see him so anti-climactic. Other fans, however, began to predict that he was still alive. This theory began because C-3PO indicates that the pit has a slow digestive system. Fans thought fat could escape. Star Wars Historian J.W. Rinzler confirms that fat has survived. He said, "Yes, he does, I talked to George, where he confirmed that fat survived, if it comes from George, it's true." However, it is unclear whether fat in the new canon is still alive.
1 POE'S A DOUBLE AGENT
Star Wars is known for its earth-shattering plot twits, as it leaves the audience speechless and in a state of shock countless times. Fans are always looking for the next plot change. They assume that one of the new characters hides a secret. Poe Dameron is one of the best pilots in the galaxy, but he is also one of the good guys, but fans have a hard time trusting him.
Fans predicted that Poe is a double agent secretly working for the First Order. They point to his interrogation as an indication, as the fans felt he had given up the information too easily. Later, The Last Jedi trailer alluded to Poe staging a mutiny so that the fans felt confirmed their suspicions. The theory is actually half true. In The Last Jedi Poe carries out a mutiny against his superiors. However, he does not secretly work for the First Order, but he had different opinions and has taken extreme measures. In the end, he fights against the First Order.
