    Perhaps the most debated topic among fans of the sequel trilogy is the meaning and endgame behind the connection between Rey and Kylo Ren. Fan theories are all over the map on how and why the two are connected through the Force. J.J. Abrams talks about the bond, in typical J.J. Abrams fashion, as Vanity Fair's coverage of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker rolls on.







    Kylo Ren and Rey are on opposite ends of the spectrum, but both immensely powerful with the Force. Kylo on the dark side, Rey on the light. It's Star Wars simplicity in its purist form, though the connection between these two characters is arguably the most complex in the saga's history. J.J. Abrams talked to Vanity Fair's Anthony Breznican about the connection, which is ultimately rooted in how different they are from one another.

    Abrams seems to find parallels between the actors and their roles. Having been lucky to have directed them in their entry to the franchise. Changes in the plans for Episode IX found Abrams working with both Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver once more, to conclude their story, within the conclusion of a nine episode story, which appears to have been a very satisfying experience for the writer/director to take part in.

    Abrams has found a way to pair both characters' individual growth alongside the increased level of despair over the fate of the galaxy. Yes, both Rey and Kylo Ren have grown more comfortable in their respective places and positions, but in that time so has the urgency and importance over this war to end all wars.

    Abrams was surprisingly quite candid to shoot down a popular fan theory, that an ancient East Asian lore known as the Red Thread of Fate foreshadows a romantic destiny between the two characters. The lore states that:
    Abrams swiftly put this theory to rest:
    Now this does not mean a romantic relationship will not be pursued, it simply means this lore was not a part of the story development, and the theory churned from it did not play a part in the progression of this story. I think it is important to clarify that, while at the same time not giving any false sense of hope, nor diminishing any existing hope at the same time.



    The good news is that the time for speculation and theories is drawing to a close because Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters in the United States on December 19.

    I'll be honest, I'm really confused with the whole "Reylo" thing at this point. I was sure I knew where it was going after TFA, but the TLJ ending made me think things might go a different way. JJ and Daisy have both made it clear that romance is not likely. I'm not sure it would work after all of the terrible things Kylo has done anyhow.

    As for the balance they supposedly represent...I would like to see Kylo beat Rey in at least ONE battle, otherwise it doesn't seem very balanced.
