    Where is the mouth drop open surprise in that? Her being a Sith spawn would be VERY surprising.

    She’s a no one, the sooner people accept that, the sooner they’ll grasp what is actually happening in this trilogy.

    She even said those very words in TFA. And for Rey the truth wasn’t that her parents had to be legends, but just nice people that left her by mistake. She hid the truth from herself because it was too painful to confront.

    The longer people don’t accept Rey No One the more difficult they will find this trilogy. They’re waiting for a vacuous continuation of a story that has already been told. As such, they’re missing all the gems woven into this tale that make it truly gripping and unique.

    Oh I will enjoy her story regardless if she is a Skywalker or not. To me she is quite unique anyway. I love her character and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.

    That would, but that leads me to ask why?

    I don't know that just seems so contrived (not that the Skywalker theory isn't however)

    For me TLJ was the end of the Skywalker saga. Leia cannot be in IX and has to die offscreen. Luke is dead and hopefully Kylo is dead by IX. So yep, that was it. Don't care for Rey nobody.

    Felt no satisfaction when Rey's parents were revealed, even though we were promised satisfaction. And I understand that, as Luke states, the force doesn't belong to the Jedi. It's meant to have balance. Luke should have been the one to discover and reveal Rey's origins instead of Kylo Ren. From there he could have elaborated that no matter where Rey came from, she can make a difference in the galaxy. She does not have to be related to a Skywalker, Kenobi, Jin, etc to find balance in the force. If only they elaborated more on that instead of leaving audiences confused, her origins would have been a little more appreciated.

    I can't believe some people still think Rey is Luke's daughter.

    That someone as sensitive as a legendary Jedi master is not going to recognize his own daughter when he sees her.

    I rewatched TFA today. If you watch her scenes assuming she really is Rey Nobody they are really heartbreaking. Shes optimistic and cherry about it- Oh im just waiting on my fam bam, no biggie.

    There is nothing wrong with her being a nobody.

    There is something wrong with her learning how to weld the force by osmosis. Then twice besting a sith wanna be whatever that has been training all his life.

    I agree with you, though I guess it was just one of those hopes of mine (regardless if it makes sense or not). Your point is very logical and valid and shatters my hopes... so thanks...

    On a serious note though, I think there is plenty of potential and satisfaction that can derive from the fact that she may not be related to anyone "special", which would then make her special.

    I say, I either hope that what we now know never changes or she is a Kenobi, outside of that, I am staunchly against her being the seed of a dark side user.

    Let's just not go in that direction

    I agree. I think they should have saved Rey for the new trilogy. It makes no sense whatsoever to have the star of the sequels not be a Skywalker. In fact, it makes so little sense that I think what we have seen in TLJ is the rise of Kylo's story arc.

    He'll be the main character in episode IX. At least I hope so.

    Most of us started this sequel journey thinking Rey was supposed to be a Skywalker, but they nixed that in favor of her being entirely new, forcing them to do two very important things at once- end the Skywalker story and start a new one. Realizing that might not have been a great idea, they have now green-lit a whole new set of movies.

    This reminds me of what was attempted with the last 2 seasons of Stargate- with Rey as the Cameron Mitchell.

    TPTB of that franchise tried to remake the old series into a new one without changing the title or most of the cast, gave up much too late, tried to reboot with Stargate Universe, and well, the rest is (a very short) history. I hope they have better luck with Star Wars. It's not too late.

    Disney didn't have to continue the Skywalker family saga with this third trilogy. They could have left it alone . . . and utilize characters from the other trilogies as minor supporting characters or the occasional cameo . . . like "Rogue One". Instead, the studio, Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson decided to end the Skywalker/Solo family with the man child, Kylo Ren. I'm too disgusted.

    I'm really starting 2 think KK haves a vandetta against the Skywalkers, as incredible as that sounds.

    No 1 at DC is like, let's kill off BM, SM & WW 4 good.

    i know there are people who just straight up don't like Kylo Ren / Ben Solo, but he's a Skywalker, he's still kicking, and there's still hope for him.

    Kennedy loves this character (and Johnson very obviously does too). they possibly love him more than Rey if all the complaining about Rey not having anything to do in TLJ means anything. Ren Ben's in Abrams hands now, so the fate of the Skywalkers lies with him.

    but it seems highly unlikely to me that a character this much loved is going to be killed off in ix.

    What?! There are people who don't like Kylo Ren? How can they dare?! Haha!

    JJ is a fan of villains staying villains. Furthermore he said Kylo Ren is a villain in the making. His journey to the dark side isn't complete. So a redemption may not seem as likely as people think. Esspecially not with JJ. But in the end I don't really care as long as the story is good.

    I just don’t understand the logic in being all hurt about Kylo Ren being the last Skywalker. I don’t get the implied personal insult that people seem to feel - regardless of whether Ben is redeemed or not.

    These are characters in a mythological tale. And even if Ben is the last Skywalker, hat doesn’t take away the good the other Skywalker’s achieved.

    However, endlessly continuing this family story will have a direct impact upon that which we all love. The Skywalker story, at its heart, has Darth Vader. It is his story that makes it interesting and has cleverly been incorporated into the ST (Vader’s legacy). But if we just keep on churning out Skywalker stories then this incredible story, told over three trilogies, will become diluted and ordinary. Personally, I think the ST is the best and only opportunity to bring this story to a satisfactory conclusion. I hope they take it. Indications suggest they will. And that doesn’t mean that KK hates the Skywalker’s for some feminist conspiratorial idea. It means the opposite. It means she loves the story and doesn’t want to ruin it. Continuing it would probably be the easy choice and a risk free way of milking the brand. But it isn’t the right way.

    “Let old things die”.

    Ps Kylo Ren is an incredible character whether he be good or bad in the end - making him more than a worthy addition to the Skywalker story. Don’t take it personally, folks!

    It's always why Lucasfilm has to branch out. Some people were upset TFA didn't go anywhere new and more people are upset that TLJ wasn't a rehash. In the short time Lucasfilm can deal with a minor backlash, but if they want to keep making stories they have to rip the band aid off now. Luke is my favorite character, but not because he's related to a Skywalker.

    What is this obsession with "Let the Past die?"
    Do people realize that it came out of the mouth of a "villain to be" at the best?
