    i mean, as much as I would like to say anakin, I'm gonna have to go with rey. It just makes the most sense (In terms of what the rest of the trilogy was about... rey being a skywalker doesn't make any sense in my opinion). But it would be really cool if it was Anakin:rolleyes:

    I think it's both Ben and Rey, although I was only permitted to submit one vote, so I chose Ben. The title is a double-entendre, like Return of the Jedi's title. Luke returns and so does Vader. Ben rises and so does Rey.

    I’d go with Rey because she thought Luke and the Jedi were an ancient legend, but, ironic as it is, she was a jedi herself. After Luke, going into exile, the jedi were not there to combat the sith. So, an awaking, have you felt it. Itnwas Rey.

    After seeing the film, I see the title referring to the rise of Jedi in general. Since Rey can become a Skywalker, anyone can be if they live their lives like one (ie, honest, brave, Jedi qualities.)

    The title for me is closing a legacy.

    I believe that Skywalker is a title for someone who brings balance to the Force.

    Skywalker is a reference to the sun. Luke Skywalker means the light that walks across the sky. So in a story that is intended to be a myth, inspired by Joseph Campbell, I would say the Rise of Skywalker refers to the same thing as our solar religions, and has something to do with why it was released near the winter solstice, the day with the least hours of sunlight, when the sun is "reborn." That is, the restoration of light over darkness, and a new hope is fulfilled.

    The 7, 8, 9 trilogy is about the collective consciousness overcoming darkness. Stormtroopers start taking off their helmets and turning, the masses show up to take action with Lando, etc. It's about trilogies 1 and 2 taking root in the masses of people who turn the tide against darkness. Ben and Rey are the sort of tumultuous relationship of the duality of the good in the evil and the evil in the good, which we all have, fighting with each other in our consciousness, in a tug-of-war over who gets to wield the sword. Kiss and make up. It's a reconciliation kiss in a relationship between dark struggling with light, and light struggling with dark, inside of you.
