    Ditto. Random character from a throwaway planet thats also thrown on at the end of a film to make a statement that another young new hope exists, even though Rey exists. He merely exists to excite kids into pester-powering their parents into buying Star Wars merch so they can emulate their new 10 second old hero.

    I quoted the first because I have to explain, but I quoted the second because in fact you get it. :)
    Yes, what I stated has to be understood "movie after movie", I mean, my statement is not good when one already knows the whole saga.
    But, when one watches ANH for the first time and encounters Luke, actually, that boy is a nobody: we don't know about his father, we don't know about his mother, we don't know about his past. One has to wait til the next chapter to learn who is the father, and if one follows the "release date order", one has to wait 6 films before he sees the mother giving birth to Luke... :) that was the very meaning of my "Luke is a nobody"
    It's the same if one follows the chronological order (I mean: knows nothing about the saga, and starts watching 1-2-3-4-5-6-...), one first meets Anakin as a slave in a desert, without father - OK, we quickly learn the boy is "special", but what I mean by "he is a nobody" is that he is not presented as special when one first meet him (assuming one watches the saga for the first time).
    The first we met REY in Jakku she was a nobody no parents, all alone, ...).
    As a comparison, the first time we see Leia in ANH, we already know she's a princess. :)

    You perfectly got that @RoyleRancor as you wrote "originally, ..." :)
