    In TFA, Rey is playing the role of Anakin and Kylo Ren is playing Vader, this is then the story of the movie :

    Anakin lives on a desert planet, he's mostly a slave working for an alien, he doesn't know much out of his world but he's curious, he studied books, holograms, languages, he waits for something but she can be violent when she needs to.
    Vader is cruel, wreckless, ambitious, agressive, deceiptive, he taunts but he has a master. A man in the shadow whom he's still dependable. Vader still at that moment has weaknesses, he doesn't kill his crew for failure and feels the call from the lignt sometimes.

    By the will of the Force, Anakin and Vader went on the same planet ( Jakku ).
    Anakin has to move with the help of a friend because it creates an awakening in the Force when Vader and Anakin were on the same place.
    Vader's instings already understand that Anakin is important for him especially now that he knows Anakin has what he's searching for ( The droid ).

    Here is introduced a Han Solo who'll tie Anakin and Vader for this part of the story. Han Solo tells about Anakin, legends, jedis, stories ...
    Anakin founds an artefact in Maz Kanata's castle, a saber, he's seeing things he doesn't understand, he didn't know he found his own saber but also the link between Anakin and Vader, the dark side of his soul, the murder weapon.
    At that point, the link between Anakin and Vader has been establish by the saber and the droid is not needed anymore. It creates something in the force. Anakin has to meet Vader.

    Vader gets to Anakin and is more powerful, Anakin fades and is kidnapped by Vader and interrogated, they seem to know they're link but they don't know why.
    Vader saw things Anakin did, Anakin can get into Vader's mind, it's weird, tricky.
    There has been a big blow in the Force at this time. Anakin gets angry, Vader gets weaker.

    Anakin tries to escape Vader, Vader is running after Anakin.

    You're a monster said Anakin to Vader
    It is you !!! ( my light side ) said Vader to Anakin.

    Vader has to shut down the light in him, he wouldn't finish what had been started with this light weakness, he has the opportunity to do it by killing Han Solo, his father ( which leaves the story when Anakin and Vader finally had met ) and he goes to fight Anakin again.

    Anakin and Vader fights again and Anakin gets the saber because he's side is stronger and by accepting his fate Anakin beats Vader for this time.
    At the moment where Anakin could kill Vader, the wave in the force is that much big that the planet is separated in two sides. Anakin and Vader separates again.
    Vader gets to his master to keep being Vaderish. Anakin finds his master to learn the light side of the Force.


    All the rest of the story is the mystery box.

    No, it's the story of the Force Awakens with Rey acting as Anakin and Kylo Ren acting for Vader.

    I fail to see the point of this thread topic. Sometimes a box is just a box.

    I'm not wasting 18 minutes watching a JJ Abrams video about boxes. Goodnight.
    It's probably a remake anyway.

    The concept of the heroic protagonist and the evil antagonist being "two sides of the same coin" and developed from the same background is common in many fantasy stories. Examples:
    1. In Star Wars, Luke and Darth Vader both grew up on a desert planet and were students of Obi-Wan.
    2. In Raider of the Lost Ark, Indy and his nemesis Belloq were both archaeologists.
    3. In Lord of the Rings, Gollum was originally a hobbit like Frodo, and Sauron was once an "angelic being" before coming to MiddleEarth (like Gandalf).

    As for TFA, Kylo Ren was once Luke's student and Rey will presumably become one. The question is whether they share more background (i.e., being related to Luke).

    I thing the filiation will be irrelevant. The story is not about this.

    It has a lot to do with the Cosmic Puppets a novel by Philip K Dick.

    It's like the Mortis Act, you have the two polarities of the Force represented by Rey and Kylo Ren. One is good by nature but there's a liitle bit of evil in it and the other is evil with a little bit of good.

    In TFA, Rey is depicted like Anakin, the young boy was in TPM and Kylo Ren is depicted as Vader, it's the both sides of everyone, it's the inner conflict of the Force itself, darkness Vs Light.

    When you watch TFA with this idea, all the plot becomes clear. It's Anakin trying to escape Vader and Vader running after Anakin. The both sides of the same coin.

    That's why Kylo Ren can see things Anakin saw and why Anakin can enter in Vader's mind. All the scenes when they are together are like Yin and Yang.

    Why is this thread under the Prequel Trilogy section?

    Duly noted, and fixed. I would have done this earlier, but I did not notice that it was under the wrong board.

    Force schizophrenia.

    Rey has to "make things right". The first sentence of the movie.

    This story is about her real redemption.
