Rumor: Details About a Finn and Rose Adventure in 'The Last Jedi'

By: Dominic Jones

Much of the story of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi remains shrouded in mystery.  Even though we've now seen the first teaser trailer for the film, we still know very little about what most of the characters will be doing.  One of those characters is Finn, who we last saw in The Force Awakens recovering from his duel with Kylo Ren.  One thing we learned at Star Wars Celebration is that Finn will recover and go on an adventure with Kelly Marie Tran's Rose.  Now our friends over at have released some details about an adventure the two will go on, involving a new creature spotted in some set pictures that made their way online last year.

As always, there is a chance this may not be true, but if you are trying to avoid all The Last Jedi spoilers then stop reading now.  This is your SPOILER ALERT!

If you remember last March when filming was taking place in Dubrovnik in Croatia, some pictures of the set leaked that included a massive horse-like creature.  In case you've forgotten, here they are below,

These creatures, according to MSW, are called "falthiers" and they are racing horses of some kind.  If you recall, the planet that the Dubrovnik scenes are filmed for is reportedly called Canto Bight and is often referred to as "the casino planet," which makes having racing horses make perfect sense.  

Now, in the top picture, there are two people riding one of these falthiers.  Those people are reportedly Finn and Rose.  This may tie into another sequence we saw being filmed during the the Dubrovnik shoot, the speeder chase through the streets of Canto Bight.

"Finn and Rose duck into the stables and they’re met by an alien that tends to the stables. Inside there are jockeys too (someone has got to ride the falthiers). Finn fast-talks the guy as they steal the falthier and race away on the stolen steed. They’re eventually engaged in a fight with the speeder and the fancy Canto Bight guys. After they defeat the guys in the speeder thanks to Rose, they ride up into a coffee shop or cafe and meet their contact as scheduled."

Sounds like a pretty exciting sequence.  There are still plenty of questions about what Finn and Rose are doing on Canto Bight, who is chasing them and why, and who are they meeting in the cafe?  We'll find for sure in December.
