Stephen Colbert’s ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Theory Is Mind Blowing

Everyone loves “Star Wars.” More importantly, everyone loves to theorize about “Star Wars.” That includes Stephen Colbert, and his theory might have some weight to it. 

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is still more than a month away, and while we’re trying to stay away from that leaked plot and other spoiler rich stuff, it’s hard to stay away from fan theories. Hell we’ve even talked about our own on Geek Show.

Stephen Colbert, host of “The Late Show” on CBS, has his own theory about the latest “Star Wars” movie, and it’s pretty good.

Here’s the gist of it:

With the Empire crumbling, the New Order steps in. He’s quick to detail that the dark side of the force isn’t attached directly to the Empire, more that it uses its power to influence a certain side. The Rebel Alliance has the best intentions, but as begun to shift to the dark side. He thinks that since John Boyega starts as a stormtrooper, the “new, New Hope” comes from the very enemy that we’re supposed to hate.

The force exists outside of any authority structure, and remember it works in mysterious ways. Stephen’s overall prediction is that dark becomes light, light becomes dark.

The very fabric of the force is stretched to it’s limits as a new generation emerges to tear down the false distinctions of the past and unite all of us…


Do you think that his theory has some real legs to it, or do you think he’s way off? Let us know! If he is right, and light becomes dark, does that mean that rumors of an evil Luke could come true??


We’ll have to wait and see on December 18th! Or December 17th if you’re Big Rich.
