Rumor of the day: The next two Star Wars films will return to these classic planets

The Star Wars universe is a big place, but that doesn’t mean you won’t occasionally return to some familiar planets from time to time. According to a new report, we’ll be seeing three more classic locales by the time the new trilogy has wrapped up.

It’s unconfirmed, but Star Wars News Net is reporting the new trilogy will eventually return to Tatooine, Endor and Mustafar by the time everything wraps up with Episode IX. As fans know, we already got a look at Darth Vader’s castle on Mustafar in the prequel flick Rogue One. The report claims Luke might return to Tatooine once he’s back in the fold, while Kylo Ren may visit Endor and Mustafar on his search for Vader artifacts like that charred helmet he’s so fond of. Again, take this all with a grain of salt for now.

J.J. Abrams made a point to feature pretty much all new planets in The Force Awakens as way to reintroduce this universe and remind fans it’s a big ol’ galaxy out there, but it’s not crazy to think Lucasfilm might be more open to revisiting some old locales once this trilogy really ramps up. If they can find ways for it to not just be a whole lot of fan service, even better.

What do you think? Would you like some old locations mixed in with all the new planets as the saga continues?
