Meanwhile, another leaked character details of Star Wars: Episode VIII give the franchise fans a better look at a sea creature that lives at Ahch-To. A detailed sketch of the creature has been shared online by a fansite called Star Wars News Net.

"We cannot confirm whether this new creature will have any kind of significant role, or just be a nice addition of environmental filler and depth. We all remember the giant pig-like happabore from The Force Awakens, a pretty large scale physical creation that appeared briefly to drink out of a trough and provide some quick comic relief by knocking Finn aside," stated the website.

However, a leaked scene description on Rey indicates that the puppet creature will eventually turn into Anakin Skywalker in The Last Jedi. The new details were shared on 4chan by a former Lucasfilm employee, who was fired by the firm. He was freely answering several questions by the franchise fans.

Check out the leaked scene description of Star Wars VIII below:

"Rey is told by Luke there is a creature in the sea consumed with hate. She eventually has to face it. It's a like giant sloth but it actually looks really neat. I'd say in the middle of the film, after she attacks it, she realizes the best way to defeat it is to get it on land where it will have trouble moving. Yes, she senses it's not real and after a moment, it changes into Anakin. This along with Finn and Rose rescuing some of the resistance only to be betrayed are two of the best scenes in the film only because they're so unexpected.  You meet him early but he's actually an animal (no one knows this except Luke which is why when he appears "human" again, it's supposed to be a "gasp" moment we call it).
