You can see a similarity on every "Episode" poster from the Star Wars Saga. The poster for The Last Jedi either changes the game, or is trying to tell us something.

With this, we're going to take a look at the posters for Star Wars movies that are "Episodes." Meaning, Episodes I-IX. Not counting Rogue One, or any of the Clone Wars movie or TV series.

While Emperor Palpatine is the biggest baddie, pulling strings behind the scenes for most of the movies, if you take a look at the original trilogy, Episodes IV - VI, you'll see that Darth Vader is at the top of the posters. He's, of course, the main big baddie in the movies.


Then we'll look at Episodes I-III. Darth Maul is at the top in Episode I, while Anakin Skywalker, on his way to becoming Darth Vader is at the top of Episode II, and again Vader/Anakin on the Episode III poster.


Now, we get to the newer movies. In Episode VII, while Snoke is like the Emperor in previous films, Kylo Ren is the main baddie that we see in action. Check out his placement. Pretty much right at the top where the Siths/main bad guys were on the previous posters.

Here is why this post is here. Take a peak at the new poster for Episode VIII, The Last Jedi. See who is in the position of the big baddie?


This is either changing the game for the posters of these movies, or it's hiding in plain sight who the bad guy in this movie will be.

This is, of course, speculation for now. We'll find out for sure on December 15th.
