    she's 900 years old there's no way she was not a jedi especially with jedi gathering force sensitive children in the past. she may have abandoned the jedi order in the past before the purge, and decided to not to join the sith.

    I mean they could work that into a story, with a "true from a certain point of view" explanation. I think the implication from her statement (that we were meant to understand) is that she was never affiliated with the Jedi Order. But nothing precludes them from writing in that she had been a part of the Jedi Order and now is no longer, thus her statement in TFA wasn't a lie.

    Here's another idea: You can have an aged Ahsoka Tano train Finn. She uses the force and lightsabers but isn't a Jedi. You get a likable female protagonist that had to earn her keep training a new character that has to earn his with the benefit of tying different eras together but seperate from the Skywalker/Palpatine drama.

    Couldn't use Ahsoka. She's one of the voices you hear talking to Rey during her battle with Palpatine (meaning she was one with the Force). I think someone else pointed out that one of the voices you don't hear is Ezra, maybe he's still out there (and he hever really fully did the Jedi walk, that could make for an interesting instructor).

    On another note



    LOL, John has had it up to here with some of the fandom and I am glad he refuses to be bullied. Your mean comments just get mean comments in return from somebody with a larger platform than you and better media. Folks might want to stop taking shots at John. LOL, he isn't playing with y'all.

    People are talking about it on other forums (especially the part about Gwendolyn liking it) The Reylos that keep taking shots at John haven't figured out they aren't hurting John.

    How's the saying go? If you come for the King, you bet' not miss. LOLOL. Boyega has had these folks on the grill since Dec 31, 2019. You would think they'd just stop and leave it be.

    I have seen a lot of twisting going on framing John as the bad guy. These folks across social media have given him so much trash over the years, it was only a matter of time before he snapped. Am pretty sure other cast members probably agree with his stance also. It's just toxic and it's gotten worse since they killed of the guy who is the centre of their precious ship, sending death messages to JJ and Chris Terrio. It's awful, am glad he's fighting back and it's hillarious everything they are throwing at him is not sticking. The guy simply does not care.

    And It's not just that he doesn't care, he is fighting back. Man I wish other cast members had done the same when they were being attacked, this is glorious.

    The wild thing is that there shouldn't even had been a conflict. But they poked the bear, and he responded. And when we thought it was all over, the guy that plays Chewbacca now tagged John Boyega to do the #BenSoloChallenge and the irrational Reylo segment went after John again. They just keep asking for it. And they are losing badly.

    LOL! I love it! Good for John. This is more proof that some certain "fans" need to lose their internet privileges. Or maybe stop throwing fuel on the fire.

    Yep ever since Rian Johnson and TLJ a certain part of fandom grew and spread. Anybody or anyone who said anything against it, got shut down and the worst part about this, Lucasfilm encouraged them. What John is doing is showing them up and also his employers and it needed to be done. As for the Ben Solo challenge thing, I have seen it. In a way I hope John does it because when folks go low, you go high. He's a principled young man and I just hope he never changes.

    They should really just leave him alone, because he is smoking them right now. And I'm all for it.

    If John has proven anything over the years, it's that he is not lacking in wit and he is not afraid to use what he's got. John just casually trashes the haters and then goes on with his awesome life. How that knowledge must frustrate them!

    This guy is hilarious not to mention slick. He's trending for the second time in a week because other people couldn't just leave him alone and let him make jokes in peace. Jokes that were actually quite tame in comparison to some of the stuff his accusers have said and done.
    You love to see it.

    So I keep thinking about it...

    JJ canonizes Finn Force Sensitivity. And it worked for this movie because they made it about more than just Finn being FS. I know some people didn't like Finn appearing to chase after Rey in this movie, but I think it was by design... in this movie he's making every effort to let her know that she's not alone, not in any aspect (even the Force). Through out the movie (and really the trilogy) one of the narrative messages is that we lose in isolation, when we think we are alone or when we try to go it alone. And while Anakin's fear of loss was one of his main drivers, it was isolation from the other Jedi's that made his full turn possible. It was isolation from his parents that helped make Ben's turn possible. It was isolation that Luke chose when he failed with Ben, and isolation that Rey was about to choose.

    So by the end of the trilogy Rey and Finn had traded places. He was initially wanting to leave the fight and just go it alone, and it was Rey trying to convince him to come back in TFA. She doesn't actually convince him, but he does eventually get there. In TRoS Rey is wanting to leave the fight and just go it alone, and it was Finn trying to convince her otherwise. He doesn't actually convince her either but she does eventually get there.
