There’s Only One Way That JJ Abrams Can Fix The Last Jedi- Find Out Here

Now that time travel has been introduced into the official Star Wars universe, thanks to the latest episodes of Star Wars Rebels; it seems that director J.J. Abrams might also be adding time travel in the new Star Wars 9 to rectify errors made in The Last Jedi.

Fans are still unhappy with the way the story ended in The Last Jedi which is set to release on Blu-ray soon. So much so, that a petition was launched to scrap The Last Jedi from the official canon. Now, with Time Travel as an official part of Star Wars lore, this may be the perfect opportunity for Abrams to fix whatever went wrong in the sequel.

Star Wars Rebels was the first to introduce the idea of time travel in the Star Wars universe, although the idea of time travel is not relatively new to the Star Wars saga, but that hasn’t fully been explored in any of the movies yet to make it a reality.

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Ahsoka discover the powerful time conduit Mortis. Here time travel was slowly introduced into the official canon. In a World Between Worlds, Ezra discovers a portal at the Lothal Jedi Temple where he hears voices from the past and future of the Star Wars universe.

Inside the portal, Ezra witnesses the climactic duel between Darth Vader and Ahsoka where he pulls her out and into his timeline. This could mean that anyone entering this portal could go back in time and save Han Solo from being killed by Kylo Ren, or stop Luke Skywalker from dying in The Last Jedi. At the end of the episode, Ezra seals the time portal so that no one can access it.

Although this new time travel function doesn’t change the Force or our understanding of how it’s used, people like Rey could go back and change things important enough. Ahsoka ultimately ends up back where she began, so her fate remains the same. So it’s possible that Ezra merely fixed a time loop. As Yoda would say the past,” always in motion is the future.”

So with this new time travel at his disposal, J.J. Abrams could utilize it to fix everything wrong in The Last Jedi. It will be interesting to see how this is used moving forward. It would be nice to see Han and Luke together again.  Time travel would have its drawbacks, however, if it were possible for every Jedi to use, they could stop C-3PO and R2D2 from climbing aboard the shuttle and stop them from reaching Tatooine, which would undo everything in A New Hope and the sequels that would follow. It is doubtful that Disney and Lucasfilm would allow that to happen. Nevertheless, time travel is here to stay.
