    So, basically, when a follow up movie performs lower than the preceding movie, it is because the preceding movie over-performed.

    Now I understand.

    Anyway, this is off-topic.

    Glad that Mark is returning and hope that he is well utilised in XI.

    (yoda ghost) "Not your time yet, young Skywalker."
    (anakin ghost) "Huh? But I just got here and I kinda like the glowy aura I have now!"
    (yoda ghost)"No! Return you must, to the physical world. Much to do you still have."

    *Yoda waves his stick bibbity-bobbity-boo style*
    *Shazaam! Ping whizz bang!*
    *Luke flexes his left hand around, feeling his physical self again, but then realises that his right hand is still missing....*


    (luke)"Aww...."
    (yoda ghost)"What expect do you? Miracles?"

    I sure hope so. It's not Luke's story. He should only troll Kylo and maybe teach Rey. That's it.

    Lando and Anakin could fill Leia's shoe btw.

    I think that is no surprise that Mark is back for IX. We did all expect it. It is good to see confirmation. I think they probably have been intending to announce it all along. They may have been very secretive about the roles in the past but they have never been very secretive of the cast. However, if there was ever a thought about withholding Mark’s name from the announcement I do think they deciding to announce it was because they knew it would create a stir but not necessarily in a positive way. While Lucasfilm and Disney are conscious of the dissatisfaction of some of the fan base and they might make some small adjustments due to it, I don’t think they are making major changes.

    I personally don’t think Luke’s or any of the other original trilogy characters have been “disrespected”. However, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Since the announcement of the ST it has been specifically spelled out that this trilogy was going to be about the stories of the new characters. The OT characters were always meant to be supporting characters that bridge the OT to the ST. A new SW trilogy with the OT characters as the central characters missed its time frame. That trilogy would have been possible 15 years ago or more. However, George decided to do the prequels instead.

    The only way for SW to move forward is for there to be new stories with new characters. The OT actors are aging and as seen with Carrie will not be around forever. The future of SW is movies with the name Star Wars with younger/prettier actors. They could have easily created the ST without any of the old characters. For me getting to see the OT gang has been a treat as I never thought I was going to be able to see them in SW again.

    The beauty of SW today is that there is so much material that there should be something for everyone. The person who only loves the OT has the OT. They can stay away from the stuff they don’t like. No matter which movies you have liked or disliked they are around forever to enjoy. For those fans who are excited about new SW movies/content there is tons of SW coming our way in the future.

    I really like that gif montage, but Rey is not a Skywalker. It would ruin Luke's character for me and furthermore piloting skills aren't passed down to your offspring. If it is, then Rey could also be a Kenobi, a Fett, a Solo etc. All great pilots. It's Star Wars.

    It's the Skywalker saga, they'd be fools not to do it. Why would it ruin Luke?
    The division of Anakin's saber is really coincidental then huh.....what is more symbolic than fixing/healing the saber/family? What is her stake in that particular item?

    I agree. Looking at it in the new light of what we learned from Last Jedi Novel, stating that Luke recognizing Rey is not born of Force lineage, I think maybe it is time to rethink Obi-Wan's line from AHN "He was the best star-pilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. I understand you've become quite a good pilot yourself."- maybe piloting skills are not passed down to your offspring.

    Because Luke doesn't know her. If she were his daughter he would be a pretty bad parent and even worse Jedi Knight.

    Such skills are definitely not passed down. If that's the case, future generations don't have to work anymore to be badass. XP

    I know some people really want this, and I'm not particularly fussed either way, but I just can't see how it can be done now in a reasonable and plausible way.

    Great GIF montage though!

    So there is no chance he comes to any other conclusions by the end of TLJ? We don't know much about Luke tbh, but he cannot be any worse a parent than a Jedi master standing over his nephew. I thought everyone loved the falliable Luke....

    Obviously, anything is possible but it would be pretty jarring.

    How would it be revealed? Why did he abandon his daughter? Who is the mother? Where is the mother? Why could Luke not sense Rey was his flesh and blood?

    Too many questions.

    People may not be happy that Rey is not Luke’s daughter but to try to retcon it into being now would do more harm to the story then good. The narrative has been that she is a nobody from the get go. If it was going to be changed, TLJ was the time to do it.

    Well, I can only speculate various ways. I don't think we can assume anything if we go this route. Perhaps he didn't abandon her and/or could sense who she was at some point on Ach-to. Could he not have had his family attacked/kidnapped, etc.? According to Bloodlines, the Skywalkers were a stain on the universe - perhaps he didn't want to burden her with the legacy of family once he discovered the truth.

    -Whether you agree or disagree, watch the end of the TLJ (with Rey Skywalker in mind) when Rey lifts the rocks, hugs Finn and it cuts back to Kylo and Luke.
    -Why is the saber split in two and what is Rey's stake in that item - symbolically?
    -What drives Luke to the brink of the dark side in ROTJ? The parallel being the hut scene over Kylo and his part to play in it all. *Threat to family*

    Fallible Luke is one thing, at least in my opinion, his flaws all have roots in the past (OT), in the character. Making Rey his daughter would mean that his one mistake/moment of weakness with Ben would become a pattern. He somehow lost not just his nephew and Jedi temple to a moment of Dark Side temptation, he lost a daughter and a partner (someone had to gave birth to her) to what... Another Dark Side temptation? Forgetfulness? The situation with Ben was meant to be the exception, not the rule.

    Not to mention it would pull the rug out of the Legend he became at the end of TLJ.

    That ret-con would require huge explano-vision. And somehow I can see that the man who imagined Rey as nobody in the first place would now do a 180 degrees turn and waste time on that in the final film.

    It cuts between old (the Skywalker family) between new (a family featuring Rey, Finn and Poe). The past <=> the future.

    It was split because the saber couldn't decide between its legacy (Kylo) and its future (Rey).

    I'll give you that one. After all, he is a farmer who was kissing his sister. What does he know about contraceptives? :D
