Who Will Be The First To Die In Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

The Star Wars phenomenon is back and bigger than ever following the releases of The Force Awakens and Rogue One. There is no doubt that there was skepticism abound following the wretched prequels that came in the early 2000s (I promise that is the only time I will mention those), but the franchise has been resurrected for a new generation.

With new Star Wars movies comes new debate and discussion about what will happen next in a galaxy far, far away. And though Episode VIII won’t be in the theaters until December 2017, that won’t stop people and oddsmakers from discussing what’s next.

MyBookie has released odds on which major character will be the first to die in the upcoming Episode VIII.

The early favorite is Luke Skywalker at +150. Though Skywalker only appeared on screen for several seconds, in a staredown that was completely followed by awkward small talk with Rey, Mark Hamill is set for a much larger role in the upcoming installment. If Episode VIII follows along the narrative that the originals had, much like The Force Awakens mirrored A New Hope, then Skywalker would logically be in for a tragic death much like his mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Next in the Star Wars dead pool is Maz Kanata at +200. Maz is a former pirate that Rey and the gang meet in a tavern on Takodana in The Force Awakens. The diminutive humanoid creature has clearly seen many things throughout her life and has some endearing qualities for viewers, but her role was largely served as a catalyst to introduce Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber into the narrative. With that over with, her death could be a way to help build on the evil dwelling within Kylo Ren.

An interesting prospect would be Captain Phasma. Everyone was excited once we heard that Star Wars was going to get its first true female antagonist only for Phasma to get next to no screen time and get taken out with practically zero resistance. Many fans have already jumped off the Phasma bandwagon and if she survived the destruction of Starkiller Base, she is a pretty easy character to be rid of. I for one hope that she comes back as the badass we all expected, but I’m not holding my breath.
