    Mark my words, JJ will reuse a key line from ROTJ and change it to:

    "You failed. I'm a Skywalker like my grandfather before me." - Ben Solo to Emperor Palpatine

    => The Rise Of Skywalker or more like the rise of Ben Solo, the last Skywalker. #Poetic

    You don't think maybe he'll have to explain his family tree first? The audience might not get it.

    There's actually a certain depth to that name. A Skywalker alone, Solo, unique from the rest due to the path he had taken. It would differentiate him, and due to the decisions and path he chose to take, it should differentiate him. The hyphenation goes beyond the dual parentage, and that's intriguing.

    Edit: It could even be seen as a Skywalker rejected. We used to talk about the curse of the Skywalker name.... Kylo could make it that the Solo name is the one to which the curse sticks.

    So if indeed Skywalker might become it's own sect for force users, separate of Jedi, than Solo's or Solo/Skywalkers could get a following as well (much like there are many different beliefs in Judaic/Christians.

    Or it could be "You've failed, your Sheevness. I'm a smuggler like my father before me."

    As much as I wish this weren't the case, I would bet anything that Rey is somehow a Skywalker and that's what the title refers to. Honestly, I think the character of Rey has been completely wasted. She just gets the best of everything (Han's blaster, the Skywalker saber, the Falcon, Leia's love) yet we haven't been shown why she deserves those things over other characters. I think this will be another one of those things. She'll be revealed as Luke's daughter and thus the truest heir to the Skywalker name. This whole trilogy will have been about her "rise" from a desert nothing to intergalactic Jedi hero with the most famous name in the galaxy. Again, I think this is a waste, but, if I were to bet my house, this is what I predict they're doing.


    As a card-carrying Kylo Ren fanboy, I would much prefer the title refer to his redemption. And I think if Rey is a part of that redemption that would make Rey cooler too. If they two of them end up leading a light/dark balance of the force by the end of the film, that would be awesome. I don't need Reylo romance, but it would be nice if they are allies and equals by the end.

    I guess maybe the title could refer to BOTH Ben's redemption and Rey being Luke's daughter. But unfortunately I think the conceptual gymnastics to have it *only* refer to Ben isn't something they would do (since his given last name is Solo). Also, they aren't going to let anyone pull focus from Rey or be cooler than her by the film's end, so, gotta factor that in too.

    Then we'll get the "All JJ does is rip off other movies" complaint. ;)

    Do you want to be thrown for a spin?

    What if Ben really is Luke's son!!!!! lmao... so he is a Skywalker, the title is about him, and Luke and Leia are Jaime and Cercei Lannister lmao. It's not like there wouldn't be any subject matter they could fall back on to make this believable either hahaha.

    It would also explain why Han and Leia broke up.... maybe that's Snoke's involvement, he clouded both Luke and Leia's judgement.

    To be clear, this I a joke, but not so much as it might have been before GoT. Yikes!

    Edit: omg, then that would make Ben Geoffrey!
