    I know DP is canon. My point is there already is connection. Kyle's reason for fighting, "I will finish what you started." Connects him and his purpose to Anakin. The whole saga has been about Anakin. Now we are looking at where that legacy goes. Bringing in DP changes the focus of the saga off Anakin his fall, redemption and legacy to the schemes of DP.

    If he doesn't get redeemed then Han and Luke's death was pointless.

    even if that was true, which i dont think it is, i would rather have them die for nothing then have a really boring repetive story line,
    the plot for kylo will be basically be:
    Hey do you want to turn good? No
    Hey do you want to turn doo now? No
    Hey its the end of the trilogy fancy turning good? ow ok.

    If they had redeemed in the last Jedi and had episode 9 having him deal with the consequences of his actions as part of the resistance, but now it would just be so paint by numbers.

    Luke's death saved the resistance. So it already has had a pay off.

    As for Han he died trying to love his son. Han moved from a selfish scoundrel to willing to walk out into a vulnerable position and risk it all. For a cause he doubted was even possible.

    Neither death is a waste.

    let's put it this way: Ben dying in the dark is what neither of these characters would have wanted (nor his mother).
    on that level it's a terrible tragedy and remains a great failure that they could not fix.

    maybe that's a life lesson worth telling a story about, but i hope Star Wars has something more optimistic to say to us than that.

    Yes, most characters of the ST want Ben Solo to be saved. But it really depends on what Kylo wants respectively on his actions.

    Right now the ST seems to tell a more realistic approach of a story. So, ending it with a tragedy is not that unlikely, but I doubt it.

    Hopefully he doesn't overdo it with fast paced action...

    i'm pretty well convinced Ben wants to be saved; he's just so far down a hole of his own pride.
    his father told him it wasn't too late and his uncle told him it won't get better down this path.
    all he needs is someone who can truly humble him without humiliating him.
    and it's not going to come from family, because that's just a source of pain.

    i'm guessing tumblr. i found it on a google search, but most of the insane Hux stuff comes from tumblr.
    (and i caution you against looking unless you are carrying eye-bleach with you). XD

    I was meaning, not from where the "Huxified" version originated, but the source of the original picture. Looks like an album cover that has been modified and I was wondering about the original source. Or, maybe it is entirely fictional. I suppose it's a mystery.

    I am on board for all of this.

    I agree. Star Wars should ultimately be about hope, not tragedy.

    Final battle? Why can't everybody just sit down and talk through their concerns?

    Also, RotJ was originally meant to have a more somber, bitter-sweet ending, but Lucas pushed for happy and cute to sell more toys (this according to... Gary Kurtz, I think?). Perhaps LFL/JJ really WILL end the ST on a downer note, with the Skywalkers wiped out yet with Luke's hope still present in the galaxy.

    As for the final battle/showdown I can't for the life of me predict what that will be like... TLJ swept so many things off the plate that we could, for the first time in 40 years get a truly original ending (if one counts ANH's blowing up the space fortress original, that is). Ep.IX is a completely blank sheet (thanks Rian :D )! Realistically, however, we will probably get a major military engagement where the Resistance attempts to strike a death blow to the FO while Rey & Kylo duels it out amidst striking scenery.
