    There is a lot of discussion on where the Star Wars is going concerning the Skywalker family. The Skywalker name has been important to each SW Saga film. Even (if?) Rey is a nobody, the Skywalker name is still important through Luke's story.

    So what happens next? Is Disney really going to wipe out the most popular surname in cinema history? Will the Skywalker name continued in a different way? Even if Ben/Rey get married and have Force sensitive babies...they will be Solos, not Skywalkers.


    Unless, as I was thinking, Rey takes the Skywalker name for herself. If she is a nobody who never finds out her last name, I could see her stating that it's Skywalker at the end of Ep. 9 (kind of like what Rose did at the end of Titanic). "I am your teacher...Rey Skywalker." Not saying this will happen or that I even want it to, but I'm curious how/if the legendary name will continue.

    We have to remember that George has said on numerous occasions that "SW is the story of the Skywalker family", and yes (as some will be quick to point out) Disney now owns the SW franchise and they can do whatever they want with it, but I believe that they'll stick to the basics...the Skywalkers.

    Now, as far as "Rey being a nobody", I still think that THAT issue is STILL open-ended because BEN made a point of telling her that she was a nobody, blah, blah, blah....how would HE know, exactly???

    The little fact that nobody seems to notice, is that there is NEVER an allusion in the movies that she's ANYBODY...directly a Skywalker, that she's somehow tied to anyone, that she's somehow special...nothing, other than the fact that Lukes saber "called to her", but there is a POINT purposely made that "she's a nobody", but nobody EVER said or alluded to in the movie that she was anybody. The fact that it is purposely said in the movie (that she was nobody) seems to make little sense and serve little/zero purpose other than for the viewer...US, and I do believe that there's going to be a twist to it.

    Ben only told her that, because that's what he either hopes for it, or was TOLD that, and in the end believes it, and I think that there's going to be more to it, because understand; If she was Luke's daughter, and Ben knew it, he might be less inclined to kill her if she were his relation as opposed to finding it easy if she were just nobody, and I feel that Snoke engineered it in just that fashion...to control Ben's decisions in the event that she needed to die.

    @HothLeia you have indeed compiled a plethora of possibilities for Rey's origins, and honestly, I can't choose as they each carry their own weight in their own ways. I will think about this. :)

    The only thing I know for sure is that Ben knows Rey.

    Rey seems to have some vague memories of him as well, so let's see the possible family dynamics.

    Twins: Nope, they're not the same age.

    Older/younger Brother/sister: More plausible, but still an age gap of 10 years.
    Beside wouldn't Han and Leia have known if they had another child?
    And why why would they have left her on such a god forsaken dust ball like Yakku of all planets.

    Half Brother/Sister:
    Also a possibility, although I don't see Leia having another child out of wedlock after it went so well with Ben.
    and well, her being addicted to politics is also not a good combination for having another child.
    Han having a child by another woman would be more likely, but aren't he and Leia still married?
    The flesh is weak though.

    Cousins: Possible, but not likely.
    Luke dedicated his whole life to the Jedi way, and unless we're getting a whole new side story on how he was seduced by some woman in the next movie, I don't see this happening any time soon.

    Clone: This is an interesting possibility, since she never saw her real parents in TLJ and instead seeing herself many times over.
    The big question would then be, of who is she a clone?

    The Skywalker name died with Luke, and I see no problem with that. It's just a name after all. Sure, fans are attached to it, but that's pretty much where all its value comes from, it serves no actual purpose in the story. The bloodline will most likely go on, and that's all that matters. And giving the Skywalker name to a character who wasn't born with it (Kylo included) just to appease the fans would feel forced. Also, it would make it seem as if the name itself holds great weight in the SW universe, enforcing the (wrong) idea that only the people "labeled" Skywalker are true Skywalkers. Which is ridiculous. Leia is a true Skywalker, so is her son, so will be his kids, and so will be their descendants for however many generations this cursed/blessed bloodline will go on lol

    George says a lot of things.
    I take them all with grains of salt.

    Rey is the one who says her parents were nobodies.
    He says she knows and tells her to say it.
    She says they were nobodies.

    That said, the Skywalkers need to end for the story to go forward.

    Let the blood line die out. It happens in real life, its a natural event. Plus doing now will stop the agony of prolonging the inevitable.

    "It's time to let old things die. Snoke. Skywalker. The Sith. The Jedi. The Rebels... Let it all die."

    The Skywalker story should end with Episode IX. Let it be a happy and satisfying end. The Skywalker curse shall be broken by Ben and Rey. Yes, Ben can have children to guarantee Skywalker offsprings, but they shouldn't play a big role in the next stories. Most of all they souldn't be responsible for the conflict.

    George has said a lot of things, and additionally has always said that SW was was the "Story of the Skywalkers". Subsequently, KK also stated that "The Saga films focus on the Skywalker family saga" and that the anthology films will "tell other stories outside of the saga", and like I've said...I don't see the Skywalkers dying out, as the Saga is their story.

    We've had R1, we have an upcoming Solo flick, probably coming are Obi-Wan and even maybe a Yoda (let me dream) flicks, AND THEN we've got RJ's stand alone trilogy in the works that has been stated to be outside of the saga timeline.

    There's going to be plenty of non-Skywalker SW to be seen, so I'm not expecting them to be going anywhere, and I personally expect to see several generations of them....If I live that long! :)

    The Skywalker Story, aka the Episodes, needs to end at Episode 9. No Episode 10, 11, 12, 13....

    Then they can make spinoff movies and other trilogies/stories (like RJ is doing) for eternity.

    If Rey is not supposed to be a Skywalker, why in the hell did Kathleen Kennedy and Disney used this new trilogy as a continuation of the family's saga? For nostalgic reasons?

    Why didn't they just leave the family saga alone and label this new trilogy as something separate?


    Why would Rey marry him?:eek: So that Lucasfilm can continue Rian Johnson's infatuation with the man child?
