    I mean, R2D2, 3PO, Ghost Luke, Leia, Kylo Ren...literally most characters would know Lukes place of Origin.

    I always assumed, as soon as TFA planet was confirmed as Jakku and not Tatooine, that the main reason for that was because they were saving it for a big return later. and actually I always assumed the final shot of this trillogy would be the twin suns. it rhymes. right?

    I can't remember, but do the leaks say why she needed to go there?

    I'm sorry, but putting the ending on Tatooine is purely so Joe Sixpack that doesn't know jack about this franchise, can recognize the location and evoke nostalgia. There is more significance to the Ewok Village on Endor for Luke and Leia than Tatooine. BUT, JJ would have gotten crap if he ended it in the same place as ROTJ. Could have went to Naboo, but neither Luke or Leia knew Padme. Honestly, Shmi Skywalkers grave is there so maybe that's the logic, bury Anakin's saber next to his mother.

    I believe the leaks have said that Rey chooses to go to Tatooine.

    Maybe you're right. my guess was that they would send Rey there, to Kenobis old house to learn the schematics to build a new saber. cos a ROTJ scene that was cut was Luke doing exactly that, and it seems they are re-using all the unused OT ideas. you know like ghost luke says 'I learned how to build my own saber based on some old jedi (instert mguffin) on tattooine, go to Obi Bens house and you'll find it...

    IT just always seemed logical that they would use that motief from the OT to me. but having said that, I agree with your point, Luke and Anakin both hated Tattooine (toshi station/sand) and couldn't wait to leave it. would have made more impact if she had gone to Courusant (if that planet exists) and went to the old jedi temple or something, like, that lightsaber should be in a museum.

    Yep. Say whatever you want about Jason Ward, but he is in no way on the same level as someone like Mike Zeroh.

    Now that all of the leaks have been pretty much confirmed, the only aspect that has me worried is how Rey's lineage is explained on screen

    Palp-enstein tells Kylo.
    Kylo tells Rey.
    There's a flashback involving Rey's parents.

    That better be one hell of an infodump flashback. I mean, they have to explain palp's wife, his son (not force sensitive?) and then Rey

    Doesn't sound like it. Reddit would have posted it by now. Which is strange, because there is a live action rendition of him on the Resistance Reborn book.

    I believe another poster on Reddit who was at the premiere said he was in it, briefly, (but needed to be reminded what Lawson looks like now first)... it's possible he could have been confusing him with a random Resistance member.
    If it was Wedge, he said he had dialogue.

    I know. Read the book. Wedge is my favorite supporting character. Just bought the Black Series figure this weekend. I’d be sad at the buildup and then nothing if he was cut.

    Sorry, he didn't confirm Wedge has dialogue - my mistake.
    Simply said Wedge "popped up" in a couple of scenes...
    "They don't make it obvious it is him [if you don't know who the actor is]."
    "He wasn't always wearing the trench coat [from the Resistance Reborn cover]."

    I still don't get why Mace Windu is one of the voices talking to Rey tbh.

    Luke, Leia, Anakin, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Yoda, even Ahsoka because she's Anakin's apprentice (though a stretch) makes sense. But Windu?
    Idk man... confuses the hell out of me.

    He was there when Anakin turned. Are all these original lines?

    New dialogue. I believe they tell her to "rise", and that she "has the power of all the Jedi within her"...

    Idk yet, the leaks aren't very specific regarding this. I'm going to see it tomorrow (hopefully), so I'll try and make out what I can then.

    Anakin tells Rey to "restore balance as he once did". That's definitely new.

    Because he's a prominent Jedi.
