    I personally like the idea of her taking the Skywalker name, but hey to each his/her own. :)

    If they strike Chewie down “he will become more powerful than any can possibly imagine.”

    I hope so Commander for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

    If the Falcon is to have its last flight, it should be used to destroy something important. Perhaps it will crash into where Palpatine is and flatten him as Rey stands there being seduced by the Dark Side?

    I’d be surprised if the Falcon is destroyed. This rumor is based on a leak of the titles in the score. I don’t know how accurate that is especially because there have been no reports that JW has finished scoring it

    Plus... the falcon/ride is one of the main attractions at Galaxy's Edge. I can't imagine them blowing it up. I mean, to me it sounds more like it's riding off into the sunset. That was my first impression. Not death and destruction.

    One thing i dont like about the leaks also is the part about Kylo having a vision of Han helping him turn to the light side. I mean would love a Han Cameo but only as a flashback as it would be weird seeing a "ghost" of Solo when he isn't a Jedi.

    A more fitting one would be Kylo watching Vader in all his glory ( Ignited red sabre) slowly walk towards a wounded Kylo and as Vader gets closer he slowly morphs into Anakin as he were in Episode 3. Here he can explain to Kylo the path he is taking and can also tell him Palpatine is only using him as he did Anakin and he must be stopped and help Rey defeat Palpatine once and for all. This gives us an Anakin return and also an awesome visual of Vader's costume being deconstructed into a young Anakin.

    Looking at the "new"trailer and images from EW I think I want downgrade my 75% plot accuracy projection to 60-65%. I think the large beats are there but context nuance and important details is what will make or break this movie.

    The new short trailer (tv spot) really changed my expectations. I can finally see JJ’s handiwork on the plot and photographic style. Something I did not see in the teaser, D23, and NFL trailer.

    Forget about the leaks for a moment...

    Watching the trailer, the new spot and taking into account some other details all coming from pictures given to the media (and made public more or less recently), I'd put together a plot pretty closed to that of JP.
    Sure he had other sources (and I'll get to that later on) but - IMO - most of his leakes came from someone in the advertising department who saw this footage and the stills with some time in advance.

    For istance... if you follow the "Poe's scarf logic" the sequence of many scenes cannot be but one.

    You can even imagine that Chewie "disappears" at some point together with the MF. Because - according to all the footage we saw so far - he's nowhere to be seen on Kijimi, but he's again with Poe and Finn on that SD. Same goes with the MF: we see another ship flying to Kijmi and then the good guys leaving the SD on the Falcon.

    Or, just because we don't have any shoot of Rey on the rebel base (the second one) then one can easely assume that she's somewhere else meanwhile...

    At the same time I find curious that whatever role Kylo's mask is going to play, the leakes tell pretty much nothing about it.
    Storywise, I mean. One would imagine that people with a so detailed knowledge about the plot, would know about it as well.

    And the fact is... that the footage gives us no clue. I can't imagine anything about it and if the leaker is someone who saw all this stuff prior than me... maybe he/she couldn't do that as well.

    In other words it's very hard to tell if the leaks are confirmed by the footage, or if it's the footage that the leaker knew about and therefore if all that came out is a very well educated guess based on it.

    In the latter case, it only takes a missed but key immagine - = not selected among those to be released (one with Chewie on Kijimi for istance) and all the castle falls down.
    Or you may give more weight to a detail than it actually deserves.

    For istance, the Sith dagger may very well be just an item from Kylo's artifacts collection that Rey takes randomly during that fight.
    To believe it's more than that then we have to trust not just JP (or JW) but what I believe are his/their other sources. Those who spoke about the filming of some scenes (especially in Jordan) and other characters (Ochie, Lando - I am personally not sold at all on the idea that we'll meet him on Pasaana - etc...) and to what I believe are attempts to tie it all.

    At the end of the day, we just have to wait and see.
    And however... sure it's fun to speculate about this as well.
    At least I surely enjoy doing it.

    I could be mistaken, but we know nothing about the Knights of Ren or the Sith fleet. Based on the MNF trailer, I could see how someone could interpret "force ghost Luke and Leia" are there to help Rey "at the end".

    The absence of the Sith Troopers is intriguing since they are part of the manor push in the toy line. One wonders, will the Sith Troopers be armed with more than blasters and carry even lightsaberesque weapons:

    So basically, it seems like we are saying: "that stuff you were telling us about, before we saw the trailer we have just seen... well, I've seen it too now, and you probably only knew about it before me because you saw/were aware of the footage before me..."

    Isn't that what a leak is? :p

    Anyhoo...
    Rey onboard Kylo's Star Destroyer; Kylo arrives on Kijimi, from Kylo's POV...

    It occurs to me there is a rather obvious way Rey might be able to give Kylo the slip during some of these "Force bond" encounters, I bet it happens at some point in the movie too... ;)
