    If people don't want to hear other takes, they should stop bringing it up.

    ANd if the plan is the end the Skywalker Saga after IX - that would indicate the story team isn't so stupid as to continue the Skywalker Saga without someone with that name.

    KK said it's possible they might continue. They were talking about it.

    Then they'll have a way for the family and name to continue on.

    Beyond just the simple logic of having someone with the name your series is named after in the story, Skywalker more then any other name/family (whatever) is connected too and part of Star Wars.

    If Ben lives and Rey takes the Skywalker name, we'll have 2 Skywalkers, so it's up to how they choose to end IX at this point.

    This interesting discussion is raising all sorts of questions in my mind, and I have no answer for them so throwing it out there.....

    Is anyone else curious about Shmi Skywalker's history prior to working for Watto? Her surname could potentially mean there is a family or clan of Skywalkers out there somewhere (unless she is the last survivor). Infact, #20 of the Vader comics supports this, mentioning the Skywalker bloodline having a lot of history and potential....implying some sort of long lineage.

    Hypothetically, if Rey, Finn or someone else turns out to be a member of this family or clan, I wonder if the general audience would be satisfied that there is a Skywalker for future stories or is it essential for the Skywalker to be a direct descendant of Anakin?

    Similarly, if Luke decides to adopt Rey or Finn, can an adopted child be a true Skywalker for the purpose of future stories?

    No, there will be an adopted Skywalker and a Solo.

    I think the Skywalker lineage could possibly date back to the old Republic if they actually wanted to go there, but since Anakin was the chosen one, most think it started with him, and will end with Kylo Ren. Having Rey connected in some way to the Skywalkers of old, or Kenobi's, could create more stories in the saga, but I'm wondering if they might try and make her connected to the first LS Force user, and Snoke is the first DS Force user, or some weird thing like that.

    @Canadian Ronin.... I wasn't really thinking about Rey being a Skywalker, trying to pigeonhole Rey into a Skywalker role or trying to figure out how she might be related to Shmi....what I was wondering is whether

    - The general audience would consider a Skywalker not descended directly from Anakin a true Skywalker for the saga?

    - Can an adopted child be considered a true Skywalker for future saga movies?

    This could be interesting.

    Its a way of doing it I think most people would be ok with - but it does raise the question about how/why Rey can use the force when they lay the ground work that Anakin can and is powerful because he was concieved by the force (unless they go with my ruffie theory) and Rey isn't part of that branch of the family.

    I think the adoption idea works too - but why not just make her Lukes real daughter at that point?

    I was literally about to raise the exact same point. We don't know if Shmi had any siblings or cousins, there could be tons of Skywalkers out there that we just don't know. There's nothing in the canonical films that would prevent this. They don't have to erase the name, even if this particular blood line ends. Heck, how crazy would it be to find out that there was another branch of Skywalkers elsewhere bordering the galaxy that had produced their equivalent of a chosen one as well?

    Or maybe Rey IS that chosen one from another branch...

    Dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!

    Pay no attention to the tweets from the story group nothing to see there.

    Because they wanted to tell a pro adoption story. Considering that the creator of the saga adopted multiple children it could be homage.

    Because they don't want to keep elements of Luke's back story as exciting as a romance that results in a child later abandoned on a junk world left out of the films. So when the time comes they will give her the name. Rather than leave the story to less optimum formats.

    Because her purpose is narratively in opposition to Kylo a privileged member of spiritually and politically family, who was assumed by all to be the successor to Luke. Hence she is the abandoned child raised in a junk yard who literally scavenges to eat. The fact the force has called her positions her as the choice of the force rather than the assumed choice to follow Luke.

    Now if they are in fact ending the Skywalkers it becomes moot. Luke and Ben are the last members of the clan in the closing chapter. If they continue past 9 then either there is a way to move forward by moving the name to Rey or a as yet unknown Skywalker. Or they figure that Rey's time among the Skywalkers is sufficient to continue despite not having the name. Even if unlikely it its possible.

    Might also explain Luke wanting to end the Jedi haha.


    Ending Skywalker is shareholder suicide.

    LuRey

    I said it before I'll say it again, ANH premier in May, TFA premier December. MAY DECEMBER ROMANCE CONFIRMED

    The results of the Han Solo movie are going to test if fans will accept different actors running with legacy characters.
