STAR WARS RUMORS: Where is the Millennium Falcon Going in Ep. IX?



JJ Abrams is reported to say that Episode IX would tie all three Star Wars trilogies together. While the Falcon in the forest could suggest the prior two locations, the rolling, grassy hills could be Naboo. Naboo’s importance in Star Wars cannot be understated. It was not only Padmé Amidala’s home; it’s Emperor Palpatine’s birthplace. Palpatine was, of course, the Sith mastermind behind the fall of the Republic and the Empire’s rise. The Star Wars Battlefront II video game already took us to one of Palpatine’s secret storage facilities. Could there be another on Naboo?
