This Star Wars: The Last Jedi question has finally been answered by Battlefront 2’s DLC

(Warning: some Last Jedi spoilers below.)

Despite critical acclaim, The Last Jedi has arguably proved to be the most divisive Star Wars movie yet with fans.

Splitting the public almost precisely down the middle with its 49% fan score on Rotten Tomatoes, and generating enough bad blood for one person to launch a petition demanding for The Last Jedi to be removed from canon and remade, backlash against the film has also been worsened by a so-called plot hole found at the start of the movie.

The opening sequence of The Last Jedi sees Poe Dameron and a bunch of Resistance fighters attack the First Order’s Dreadnought, and it’s the Resistance’s subsequent bombing of the ship (against General Leia Organa’s orders) that angered some fans.

Without any explanation, the Resistance soldiers know where to plant their bombs in the Dreadnought – how? A mole? Intuition? Sheer dumb luck?

Well, this particular mystery has finally been solved by Battlefront 2’s ‘Resurrection’ DLC, and it’s a familiar (Star Wars) story.

Similar to how Jyn and the Rogue One heroes obtained the plans for the Death Star, Battlefront II‘s DLC reveals that Imperial commander Iden Versio, her daughter Zay and Shriv Suurgav obtained the plans to the Dreadnought and “transferred” them to General Leia Organa to help the Resistance.

This, in turn, helped Poe and the Resistance bombers figure out where to deploy their bombs.

The video also suggests that those plans contained the map that Rose and Finn used to infiltrate Snoke’s ship to disable the hyperdrive tracking system – although Finn is a former Stormtrooper, so he probably didn’t even need one.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in cinemas now.
