Although everyone seems to have different opinions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens (after multiple viewings Im still very much in the pro camp, for the record), theres one thing you cant deny about it its got the public talking about Star Wars more than they have done in years.
Less than a month since the film came out, almost everyone you know has probably seen it. And they probably have some theories about where the retooled space opera saga is heading next. If your Christmas break was anything like mine, you probably spent a hefty chunk of it discussing Reys parentage over a never-ending supply of mulled wine.
Sadly, we wont get any answers about The Force Awakens manifold teases and dangling plot threads until Rian Johnson's Star Wars Episode VIII reaches cinemas in May 2017. Until then, here are the best fan theories for Episode VIII that have surfaced so far
Spoilers ahead for The Force Awakens.
