    Emperor: You cannot defeat me. The most powerful dark lords of the Force could not destroy me—Dooku, Snoke, Plagieus—they all failed. The greatest Jedi have tried and failed—Windu, Yoda, Anakin, Luke—I cannot be defeated. I am more powerful than you could ever imagine.

    Rey: I am no dark lord. I am more than a Jedi. I am a Skywalker. And I am not alone.

    Finn: I am a Skywalker. (Ignites lightsaber)

    Poe: I am a Skywalker. (Ignites lightsaber)

    Kylo: I am a Skywalker. (Ignites lightsaber)

    Chewbacca: Growling (I am a Skywalker; Ignites lightsaber)

    Emperor: So be it, Skywalkers. And now you will die....

    (Epic battle ensues).

    Well Boyega did say he thought the fans wanted them altogether, I guess this would be one way to do it.

    A Skywalker is essentially a Super Powered Jedi ...

    The scenario above might be overkill, but I kinda think we’re going to get a “Skywalker” Jedi sect by the end of IX

    I wouldn’t mind something like an “I am Spartacus” moment.

    Already didn't like the idea when HelloGreedo brought it up. Imo the title is referring to Kylo Ren redeeming himself, becoming Ben Skywalker.

    It certainly could be that.

    "I can't save him. (but) No one's ever really gone.".

    Only love can save Ben. For a second, Han almost did it. Ben could not kill his mother. Luke could save Darth Vader because he was his son. "Tell your sister you were right...".



    "Love always wins."

    I’m not a fan of this idea because Ben is a Skywalker by blood but he is a Solo by name and birth. I feel like Ben changing his name would cheapen Han’s sacrifice and death

    Yeah, I don't see it that way, I can't see how this would cheapen Han's sacrifice and death, especially now that we know the origin of Han Solo's name.

    That’s fair but no matter how Han got his name it was the one he kept and identified with for many years. It was the one he passed down to his son who he loved enough to try to turn him back to the light even when he knew the odds were likely against him. For Ben then to change his name to that of his uncle just does not seem right. Even though his mom was a Skywalker she never used the name so why should it mean anything to Ben.

    I guess thanks to Bloodline we know the story to that.

    I can see where you coming from, but to my mind the title refers to redeemed Kylo Ren and no one else, whether he calls himself Ben Solo, or Skywalker.

    I could be wrong but I have said since before TFA that they set up an oppositional parallel with Kylo and Rey. He is rich she is poor, he fights for power when it calls to her she denies it. They are the legacy left by Anakin. Who will carry the baton forward? As such I think that is exactly where the title comes in what makes a Skywalker.

    "You cannot deny the truth that is your family."



    One of the first lines of the ST, said to Kylo Ren. Likely it refers to the Ren family, though.

    The Knights of Ren are an organization, not a family.
