Star Wars: The Last Jedi - 8 Crazy Fan Theories You Need To See

Is Supreme Leader Snoke actually Mace Windu?

Yep. It's that time of year again.

With the latest Star Wars film safely out of theatres and all eyes now firmly locked on the next instalment, our old friends the rumour mill, the fan-theory machine and the hype train are running stronger for Star Wars: The Last Jedi than they ever have before.

And that's not without cause, either. The Force Awakens left us with heaps of unanswered questions and dangling threads, and since, upon its release, we had a two-year wait for answers, who can blame people for attempting to fill in the blanks?

This has resulted in a tonne of of creative fan-theories regarding the upcoming episode, as though the long wait has sent people into a perpetual state of mental hyperactivity - where even the tiniest, most inconsequential of details from prior Star Wars movies (or the expanded universe) can be scaled up into a full-on crackpot prediction.

There are no shortage of these when it comes to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and while some are thought-provoking, others are hard to imagine, completely unlikely or plain impossible. This is the most expansive franchise in film history after all, and if you look hard enough, you can find 'evidence' to support just about anything.

We've scoured the web for the craziest, least-likely or most out-there theories we could find, and here are eight of the best.
