    Kylo Ren is obviously the last of the Skywalker bloodline. The three trilogies are obviously about the Skywalker saga. So given Kylo's path following TLJ, how is it even possible for EP9 to give a satisfying ending to the Skywalker saga?

    Essentially for the Skywalker saga to end, then Kylo Ren has to die right? Afterall, there is no sense of introducing a lost or unknown Skywalker at this point of the story nor does it make sense for Kylo Ren to have a child. It just don't see how they pull this off.

    I'm interested to hear others' thoughts and speculation because honestly I can't think of anything.

    Well i know this is wishful thinking but Rey still could be a clone. Reylo is clearly is/was a big tease. If KR haves a child with a time skip it won't feel so odd.

    Personally, I would have nothing against the future of the Skywalkers remaining unknown past IX. I mean, my preferred scenario is that Kylo redeems himself and goes into some kind of exile. And that's it - we may or may not find out what happened to him in the future. I believe that proper execution could make it satisfactory. I have a feeling, though, that J.J. may want to wrap this up definitively (which has its advantages - for instance, it's better than having major story points resolved in subpar novels or comics), so there's a strong possibility that Kylo just dies and the bloodline ends. In that case the big question is whether or not he dies a villain and this is where the end of the Skywalkers' story may become unsatisfying.

    If he dies good or evil I'm more saddened of the family ending. Maybe that's why Lucas was so angry in the Rose interview. Maybe the plan was Rey Random all the long with all Skywalkers ded by 9. (With a surviving Leia past hear child bearing years, maybe).

    Im still on the fence with this one. One part of me thinks they will leave the story open. Not saying they plan on more Skywalker movies but who knows 10+ years down the road. However, I have a hard time of seeing Kylo surviving. Maybe he doesn't and IX wraps up what Lucas started with RJ' new movies ushering in a new era of trilogies for the future.

    i think Ben will survive, but his future will be left ambiguous.
    he's going to have to go away one way or another, so they could send him into exile to keep the Skywalker genes on retainer in case they ever need them.

    Yea, probably correct. Instead of him hanging on Mustafar, he may selcude himself on swamp world in a little hut thinking about what he has done until they need him.

    I really want him to walk into the sunset, sort of like what Kasdan wanted for Luke at the end of ROTJ.
    Ben needs to be redeemed, walk off into the sunset and we don't know what he will do, and what will happen to him. Then in the next trilogy, he's doing something fascinating with life... and being some sort of neat hero.

    this is enough for me. i don't need a tidy ending or a parade or even closure on some fairy tale love story.
    just Ben going off to be a better and happier person and the endless possibilities that entails. : D

    Don't really care, if Kylo dies so be it. I find nothing precious in the Skywalker blood line. I find nothing precious in Kylo / Ben either. Will it happen? Probably not Disney are cowards.

    I'm betting on redemption with a caveat.

    Skywalker name doesn't live on, but Solo does.

    what is wrong with you guys NO ONE in star wars, ever, ever thinks for a second, that if you found a child, or one came to you, that isn't your real son, Kylo Renn could have come from ANYWHERE
    and he's still not their real son, but he certainly didn't come from Leia's womb, that's insane, why would you assume that? that's a social, american norm that doens't make ANY sense to think in star wars,

    let's air it out, air it out Leia, wanna talk about him? his spies are here, wanna say what we say? air it out, we're jedi, but like, let's get stupid, "I saw him Leia, I saw our son," "Bring him back Han Solo, I know he wanted US to own him I just know he did! we do! we do own him han solo it's the Best of the worst of a situatiaauans!" like what?
    anyway who designed Rey?
    where did she come from? do you know?

    It's confirmed that he is Leia and Han's biological son.

    yeah it's also confirmed that they lost their copywrite on Rey, lost Mark Hammil and Daisy Ridley because of it, made a scab movie anyway, and The Last Jedi sucks, so no, he isn't, that movie's garbage I won't watch it, that's not even her...
    Ara Skywalker was published first, online, and they never, deviated from that character design, millenium falcon included,
    for Rey, so as far as the whole planet's concerned, they stole that character, it's not theirs, she's a Skywalker, by name? It was a clan
    secret doorways, backway pullswitches, who designed imperialism? empire sounds kinda cool, evil doesn't design cool, who did that?
    is there a good one?

    Could you give us a source? I haven't heard a single thing about Disney "losing" copyright on Rey... I don't believe that's even possible, but that source would help.

    Is there a reason the Skywalker bloodline should even return?
    They essentially facilitated two massive genocides and caused billions of deaths.
    The death toll at the hands of the Skywalker bloodline should make you really rethink it continuing on...
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 4, 2018, Original Post Date: Feb 4, 2018 ---
    To add on, this isn't including Anakin's other horrific crimes which could be considered a third or even fourth genocide.
