    If Rey sets him on the right path great.

    If Luke dies and Rey is just Rey a lightsider with no new title great.

    Both of those options fit with the philosophy of the OT and the fact that we are supposed to cheer that the Jedi returned.

    The PT Jedi had issues but Lucas showed them dealing with a tradgedy beyond their understanding. When Obi-Wan presented as the noble hero's mentor in ANH hope speaks he declares the Jedi the gardians of Peace and Justice in the Old Republic. The whole OT hinges on Luke becoming a Jedi.

    So even with some of the shortcomings of the PT. Which never change Obi-Wan's description in my book. I can't see the films ditching the Jedi even if Luke has lost faith or gone to the dark side.

    I don't disagree. But the series is about family, redemption and rebirth. So if the Jedi are reborn as something new or different than what they were in the past, it would be consistent.

    Fair enough but that's a far cry from grey. Ir dimping the Jedi because of the prequels.

    I think the shocker would be, that the force is no longer contained as light or dark side but as an Upside and Downside.

    Yes, but Harrison is done playing Solo. Heck he was done during Return of the Jedi since he felt Solo was not a main part of the plot

    I am chalking it up to translation and marketing. I think the mystery they refer to is that we don't know the plot.

    But as far as hope. . . I hope the shocking reveal is something like, the Jedi were actually the bad guys, who through great war subjugated the people of the galaxy and ruled with an iron fist. Over the generations they formed a shell government to make the people "feel" free, and slowly morphed into the peace making serene Jedi Order through propaganda and intimidation. Luke found out the evil origins and want to end the Jedi because they actually were "evil" as Anakin said. He, like in most things, didn't realize he was correct, but he was. I think that would be kind of a fun route to go. Just totally go off the rails after the soft reboot. Be bold, be completely unexpected. Pipe dream i am sure, but still hoping.
