UPDATE 2! New Listing by Topps Cards Reveal the Basic Plot Outline of The Last Jedi!

Topps Cards has uploaded a list on their site that features all kinds of new decks and cards part of their upcoming Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases. Of course, the most interesting section is directly related to the actual movie directed by Rian Johnson. I am still not sure what to think of this, since the list is freely accessible by anyone on Topps’ site, although the content could be considered spoilerific for a general outline of the movie…






The listing that you can find here has all kinds of different decks, but the most interesting one is The Last Jedi Base Cards. They include the following cards (final warning, the following info pretty much reveals the basic plot outline of TLJ):


91 Rey’s Solitude
92 General Leia Organa
93 Rey and her Lightsaber
94 On Crait
95 Rushing to Attack
96 Finn’s Recovery
97 Poe Responds
98 The Fury of Kylo Ren
99 Shards of the Past
100 Luke’s Grim Perspective
101 Ski Speeder Assault
102 Walkers Incoming
103 The Resistance
104 The Resistance X-wing
105 The Resistance A-wing
106 The Battle Commences
107 Frigates Under Fire
108 The Resistance Vs. The First Order
109 The Millennium Falcon Flees
110 Heroes United


As you can see some of the outline is pretty close to what we all guessed based on the teaser trailer and the behind the scenes footage, but there are also several interesting points. For example we all thought that the battle on the planet Crait will happen at the end of the movie, but here it is in the middle.



First I thought that this list might not be in chronological order but then I looked at The Force Awakens cards in the same listing which are in perfect chronological order, making me to conclude that The Last Jedi deck should also be in chronological order. Here are TFA cards:


71 Invasion of the First Order
72 Poe’s Interrogation
73 Fast Friends
74 Rey, the desert scavenger
75 Escaping Jakku
76 Kylo Ren’s Rage
77 An Unexpected Encounter
78 Off to Takodana
79 Outside Maz’s Castle
80 Maz’s band plays on!
81 The First Order Rallies!
82 Finn Steps Up
83 Rey alone!
84 The Resistance Takes Flight
85 Formulating the Plan
86 Infiltrating Starkiller Base
87 Reunion with Rey
88 Dueling the Dark Side
89 Rey’s Victory
90 Meeting Luke Skywalker


The most interesting 2 cards for me are Shards of the Past and Luke’s Grim Perspective. I assume that these will take place at the end of Rey’s training on Ahch-To. This probably will be connected with the Journal that we’ve seen in the teaser trailer and Luke’ words that the Jedi are no more. But are we going to see Luke leaving Ahch-To? This remains the biggest mystery to me. We are yet to see any proof that the Master Jedi will leave the island. Also, according to the last card, the heroes will be united at the end of the movie. From the BTS reel we had the impression that this would happen during the battle on Crait.



So as you can see there are some things that look off in this list, and at this point we shouldn’t jump to any big conclusions. After all, they may not be in a chronological order – the placement of a card talking about the Resistance arriving on Crait before Finn wakes up seems to go against what we’ve been led to believe about the plot so far, but that might just be the exception to the rule. It’s curious that Cantonica and the city of Canto Bight is not mentioned anywhere in the cards, and the final sequence appears to be taking place in space. There are also some character cards in the list, but there are no surprises there.


Again, we’re not sure if this is a real leak or this is supposed to be revealed for Force Friday II. But if we are to believe Rian Johnson’s words from earlier today, we should be safe and not spoiled by TLJ merchandise.



Special thanks to Rieekan for sending the link.






Pablo Hidalgo was asked to share his opinion on the list. According to him the list is very misguided:



It’s unclear what exactly he means by misguided. Perhaps the list is not in chronological order, because I doubt that a company like Topps will include official cards that are intentionally misguided and wrong on their site. Still, it’s a good thing that this list does not actually give us a better idea about the plot, it’s better this way. We all hope for the best experience in December.






Also Topps clarified themselves that the cards are not in chronological order:



Thanks to John Bear Mackay for the heads up.

    Just realized that Luke’s robe is brown colored in this shot and the EW shot with his arms outstretched, but that Hungarian Magazine shows Luke with a black cape and robe. So, I’m curious if they color corrected it and which version we’ll see in the actual film or maybe both.

    • September 1, 2017 at 3:01 am

      im not sure about you… but i have more than one jacket… couls he have 2 robes….

      • September 1, 2017 at 5:29 am

        New stand-alone movie: “Robe One”

      • September 1, 2017 at 6:48 am

        I would assume every character in Star Wars has more than one jacket or outfit to wear, but we only ever see what the production crew wants us to see.

  • September 1, 2017 at 4:57 am

    Concerned… From this, appears that Luke is basically an extended cameo until (hopefully) the end, the rest is formulaic Hollywood style reboot material… again

    • September 1, 2017 at 6:08 am

      Hmmm not to be negative but I have to agree Tav with your post. I got the same feeling: Cameo Luke, Hollywood rebooted big screen tripe. JJ Abrams might as well have directed. Hope im wrong.

      • September 1, 2017 at 1:22 pm

        If Luke has a cameo then Rey has a cameo because they are with each other. lol

      • September 1, 2017 at 5:33 pm

        don’t even say that out loud…a cameo…I’d lose it, if that’s all we get of Luke!

      • September 1, 2017 at 5:45 pm

        I trust RJ a lot more than Abrams as he is a much better director. But really, TFA playing it safe didn’t help in terms of the long run. I watched a review recently that was critical of TFA and actually managed to offer some insightful points.

        He criticized LF’s unwillingness to take risks as went against SWs. This being that when GL did ANH; it was a long, hard production that very much had a degree of uncertainty and setbacks. But very much like the themes of the movie, we all know what happened.

        Normally, I’d roll my eyes at this, as really yeah; it is known but very vapid. But then he brought up Mad Max Fury Road; a movie that by all accounts continued a long franchise that managed to renew itself while also being daring to be different and that was fantastic.

        And oddly enough scored enough academy awards. So yeah, overall, TFA I find as a SWs not good and really gets way too much credit/ excuse for playing it safe. But that is my view. I understand why someone may like the movie.

    • September 1, 2017 at 9:56 am

      Luke is The Last Jedi. He’ll obviously be in all 3 acts. His role is not an extended cameo.

      • September 1, 2017 at 3:17 pm

        Don´t be so sure! The title is in plural!

        • September 1, 2017 at 5:02 pm

          With official merchandise quoting Luke as The Last Jedi, I think it’s now pretty much a given. I do believe this movie is more about Luke than anyone else, The Force Awakens built up to it, with Rey’s journey to Luke. This movie will most likely cover what happened to Luke, and the decisions he is forced into making. Perhaps a more accurate movie title should be, The Last Jedi… For Now.

          • September 1, 2017 at 7:24 pm

            OK, perhaps the screenwriter and director speaks the truth. Perhaps Luke is indeed the last Jedi as staten in ROTJ and TFA and by the director himself….still the title is in plural so it is possible Luke trained at least one of his students to full Jedi knight and the movie will reveal it….we know Rey is not a Jedi nor will she be in this movie…but there has to be more then one otherwise the title would have no sense. I expect some surprises here… 🙂

          • September 1, 2017 at 7:43 pm

            Surprises would be good, sure they’ll be some.

    • September 1, 2017 at 1:21 pm

      So when you were in school and you had to do a book report. You just read the chapter titles and then wrote your report based off that…. BRILLIANT!

    • September 1, 2017 at 3:52 pm

      Watch it before you go on a concerned rant….. Just saying. It’s just a few chapter titles, there’s not even a plot outline.

    • September 1, 2017 at 5:28 am

      The heroes weren’t united at the end of Empire. One was encased in carbonite being transported to Jabba the Hutt.

      • September 1, 2017 at 5:31 am

        well artoo save them fixing the millenium falcon and theres luke and leia so… yes they are heroes

        • September 1, 2017 at 2:53 pm

          But wait… heroes were united at the end of Star Wars (1977), and… at the end of RotJ and TPM too… and that Anakin and Padme shot at the end of AotC is basically the same as the one from ESB… OH MY GOD EVERYTHING IS A REHASH!!! AAAAHHHH!!!
          (or, you know, maybe that’s just how this kind of movies are written…)

    Shards of the past would make sense if the rumors that Luke is wearing Vader’s Kyber Crystal around his neck prove to be true.

    • September 1, 2017 at 5:43 pm

      Supposedly the Story Group has stated that Vader’s saber was destroyed with the Death Star. Personally I’m surprised more people aren’t interested in the fact Luke is wearing a red saber shard around his neck. I believe it could actually be his and he dismantled his own saber after corrupting it with the Dark Side in the wake of loosing his school. Thus no green saber in the pics or toys. The folly of developing attachments and all that.

      • September 1, 2017 at 5:49 pm

        Wow I actually like that idea, and it would actually be really sad if true. If his crystal bled red because of his pain and suffering, then that would be a great way to show just how much losing his temple really affected him.

        • September 1, 2017 at 7:50 pm

          I think in the new cannon Kyber Crystals are all clear until they bond with a Jedi and Sith can create red ones by corrupting a Jedi’s crystal, perhaps Luke lost it a little and no longer trusted himself to not use the dark side after turning his own crystal red when his students are slaughtered. It would give a nod to the old Jedi code of not coveting relationships, attachment leads to sorrow, sorrow leads to anger and anger leads to the dark side. He goes into self exile after letting the dark side creep in. Interesting theory, one thing is for sure, that red crystal is not Vader’s.

          • September 1, 2017 at 9:19 pm

            I like it..I like it a lot.

  • September 1, 2017 at 10:36 am

    100 Luke’s Grim Perspective—- it’s time for the jedi to end

    if I’m correct, there is a possibility that Luke says this AFTER training Rey

    • September 1, 2017 at 2:28 pm

      Things went that badly? Ouch.

  • September 1, 2017 at 2:27 pm

    91 Rey’s Solitude. Rey is in prison!? Or is it a fortress?

    92 General Leia Organa. Leia is generally around?

    93 Rey and her Lightsaber. At least she has a friend in prison/fortress.

    94 On Crait. They misspelled crate.

    95 Rushing to Attack. They misspelled Russian Attack.

    96 Finn’s Recovery. Who would hurt a dolphin?

    97 Poe Responds. Is this like Dear Abby?

    98 The Fury of Kylo Ren. Kung Pow Ren. Fists of Fury.

    99 Shards of the Past. Leads to a fractured future!

    100 Luke’s Grim Perspective. Debby Downer now with friend abandonment and the force abilities.

    101 Ski Speeder Assault. When the down hill slalom gets serious.

    102 Walkers Incoming. When retirement homes strike back!

    103 The Resistance. Vive la France!

    104 The Resistance X-wing. Whatever happened to C through W?

    105 The Resistance A-wing. You’ll need more than just a wing to fly.

    106 The Battle Commences. THE battle? Ragnarok confirmed.

    107 Frigates Under Fire. For some serious trade violations.

    108 The Resistance Vs. The First Order. First order of business? Resisting.

    109 The Millennium Falcon Flees. I hear a collar and treatment on the neck can take care of most flea problems.

    110 Heroes United. Infinity War cross-promotion!?

  • September 1, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    Hi there, these cards are NOT in chronological order. Topps responded to someone on Twitter about it.

  • September 1, 2017 at 5:41 pm

    May main concern is that there are apparently at least two major battles between the First Order and the Resistance which amount to a lot of screen time. As much as I like battles, I would like to see more character development and less mindless action and explosions.
