    @GingerByte I would suggest reading the following Twitter thread, particularly the comments made by Story Group member Matt Martin:

    I've already read them, and I'll repeat myself once again. Saying things like that is not the intended implication, this is Anakin's fear manifested is not a dismissal of that idea. It's a dismissal of that particular theory being confirmed.
    Never once has he said Palpatine never created Anakin, he is merely saying that is not the comic panel or ROTS is implying.

    It's an interesting question but I personally don't feel the evidence sufficiently supports the conclusion. Ben's hand placement was a mirroring of Rey's hand placement when she gave life to him. His right side, her left side. Rey taking the name Skywalker was due to spirit(Skywalker) being stronger than blood(Palpatine), as Luke stated i.e. her spirit defined her identity and familial association and not her blood. Both of these are given their meaning in the story, with no association with pregnancy.

    The two lightsabers signifying twins would be an interpretive conclusion requiring that the pregnancy is first validated in some meaningful way before the lightsabers can be said to represent any outcome of said pregnancy.

    Forget Pregnant. He did What Anakin couldn't do. Save the one he loved from dying. Yes, it cost Ben his life but it worked and it was learned from, a Jedi.
    I don't need to dig everything up in AOTC word for word. But you get where I'm going. Saving someone can't be learned from a jedi. Well... what do you know he did.

    Forget the Pregnancy thing. Ben did what Anakin could not. And learned it from Rey.

    Hello there.

    I personally am asking myself why JJ. Abrams made relatively long close shot of Ben Solo holding his palm on Rey' belly while transfering his life Force reviving her from death.
    The Force creates Life. Isnt creating a life from nothing,or in this case reviving a dead actually much more demanding than imaculate conception?

    I am not saying we have any strong evidence Rey could be now pregnant, but certainly bringing someone from dead is more difficult than making imaculate conception.And also imaculate conception literally is same machanism as reviving Dead, its a giving of Life to something that was not live before or anymore.

    It would also represent, in my opinion , a powerful circle and reminiscence of begining of saga,with Shmi once been pregnant in the same way, a full circle.Saga ends like it began.

    And honestly, as a great fan of Ben Solo, this would give satissfaction to me, since part of him still lives.

    So I want to believe.

    best regards.

    I could see her being pregnant as a unintended consequence of Ben giving his force life to save her.

    I'm not sure I see much evidence for it but Rey seemly to settling down on the Lars homestead would be reasonable if she is and an easy tie in to more movies.

    Nope I don't think she's expecting, too young for that yet & she needs the peace/quiet to calm the rage.

    I think this is more attributable to wishful thinking of some Ben Solo fans who are going through the Bargaining Phase of grief, than actual reality. They haven't budged on this being the end of the Skywalker Saga and for that alone I'd assert that she wasn't pregnant. But even if they hadn't stipulated that, I would hope to God that someone in LFL would have the good common sense to annihilate this prospect if it was ever floated as a possibility. If there of out of universe reasons to resurrect Ben somehow, and then he gives Rey a child so be it, but... Rey being "impregnated" by Ben, while unconscious, through the force?

    A thousand time nay.

    There are so many reasons NOT to do this, not the least of which is Rey finally getting to be something other than a paramour for other characters, but if they must do it, let Rey seek it out. Do NOT let her become pregnant like this.

    This entire notion is predicated on a fully debunked and non-Canonical theory.

    I dont think Rey is anymore pregnant by Kylo putting is hand on her belly to heal her than Kylo was pregnant by Rey putting her hand on his belly to heal him.

    . . . . . it does? I know the midi-chlorians can create life. I know life creates the Force. I don’t remember it going the other way though. I mean: sure, why not, I just don’t recall anybody saying that.
    Interesting tidbit: the word ‘immaculate’ means perfect - without flaw. In biblical terms, it refers to Jesus having been conceived without original sin. That’s the ‘immaculate’ part. It’s not really a general term for ‘virgin birth’. That would be closer to ‘miraculous conception’ :)

    According to Yoda, it's the other way around: Life creats it [the Force], makets it grow.

    No she is not pregnant but...... the ST has shown us that Force ghosts can interact with the physical world so..... Force Ghost Ben, Rey, a pottery wheel and Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers playing in the background and we may have something :p

    In my second viewing I got an impression Ben realized something while taking a dead (or dying) Rey in his hands. It could be the realization that she was dead, but that didn't seem to be it. I think he realized how much he cared for her and then made a sudden and firm decision to sacrifice himself to save her. I think he felt that was the right thing to do. If that was only his decision or his and Leia's we do not know (see below). If he knew he was mortally wounded, or that he would die by the life transfer is anyone's guess.

    Could he have realized she was expecting, and therefore the resolve? It didn't seem to be the case. He put his hand more to her left side, if I recall correctly, and not so much the uterus area but more the gut. So, could she be pregnant? Maybe. But even if she was, it didn't mean the baby was his.

    My biggest question about the dying scene, and please allow me the side note, is what was Leia's role in Ben's behavior since he was fatally wounded on Endor's moon? Could Leia be connected with her son on a deep level ever since? I mean, Ben dies and "disappears" like a Jedi, and moments later Leia also disappears/dies like a Jedi. Could they be one at that point? Maz's expression at the end right beside Leia when she died, seemed to indicate Leia may have had more of a say on Rey's saving than we may realize.
