There was a cute little moment at the end of the Episode 9 panel.  After they showed the trailer, the lights came up and there was Ian McDiarmind on the stage by himself.  He's standing there for about a minute, with a goofy grin on his face, while the crowd is cheering at him.  He keeps raising the mic to his mouth like he's about to say something, and then lowering it because he can't stop grinning.  When he finally manages, he says, "Roll it again!" in his Emperor voice.

It was amazing. I loved the end of the trailer when you heard the Emperor laugh. Is that the shell of the deathstar? Is that Yavin 4? or Endor?

It could be either I guess since they were both forest moons. I don't think the Death Star was close enough to Yavin for a piece of it to land there but then again, we all know J.J. is horrible with how big space is so who knows. I was just shocked they revealed the emperor in a teaser trailer. I'd think they'd hold that back for awhile longer.

That probably means there are more reveals to come.

It's an incredible tease that will drive a shit ton of buzz for a few months until the release the first real trailer.

I assume that since JJ is doing this one, it's going to be Return of the Jedi beat for beat.  Which means that we need a bigger badder guy than Kylo/Vader, and that's going to be a Palpatine clone since they killed Snoke (maybe Snoke was a Palpatine clone that didn't bake long enough or something).  Then Kylo can have a do-over of that fight from TLJ but this time he redeems himself while dying tragically and something something the last Skywalker.

I think they'll have to jump through hoops to explain it. Maybe Luke got drunk after his Jedi Temple was destroyed and had a one night stand. That said, I think it's obvious the Force Awakens was aiming to make her parentage a key mystery and Rian Johnson was like "meh, I'll just say she's a no one." I get why he did it and without the foreshadowing it would have made sense but with it it felt a bit out of left field.

I'm going to say that Rey is carrying Luke's cutoff hand and they are off to clone him. In the process of looking for the Emporer's old cloning chambers they find him instead. They raise Luke to fight him because he's super powerful.

Here's the bag Rey is carrying:

Christmas is going to be so much fun this year!

And my brain went to some kind of timey-wimey travel stuff somehow, but clones do exist so that's the stronger possibility.  I much prefer rey to not be a Skywalker by blood and instead take on the name.  That feels like a better explanation to me, honestly.

If she's a Skywalker it will be through cloning, not from being actually related. Having the emperor back kinda points in that direction as well.

I wouldn't mind her being a clone.  If they tie it back to the theory that Anakin was created by Darth Plagueis/Sidious through some kind of manipulation of life through The Force, and Rey had a similar heritage, I think it'd be a fun way to make the story come full circle.

I saw a really cool theory on Youtube. Essentially, the theory was that Rey will form a new order but instead of calling them Jedi she will call them Skywalkers. So basically, going forward, all Force students are Skywalkers. I'm not doing it justice but it sounds kind of cool and makes the title make sense as the third movies have all been about the rise or resurgence of a Force using order of some kind.

That would make the title awkward. It's not "The Rise of the Skywalker" or "The Rise of Skywalkers"

I just don't see that. IIRC Maz (whatever the cgi character name was) specifically said her parents weren't coming back, and she should look towards "what was in front of her", so while her parents are important to Rey as it informs her decision making process but I didn't see it as something that should be important to the story overall.

I don’t think ascribing any vision or long term planning for this narrative makes sense post-Rian.  JJ and friends will make up anything they want to suit whatever they want.  Nothing in the existing narratives from ANH to Rebels matters, because it didn’t matter last film.  Fun to prognosticate but nothing.


Fake Edit: I think a lot of fan story ideas and theories are way more interesting that what we’ve received and what we’ll get.

Am I wrong, or was the most definitive statement on her parentage coming from Kylo Ren?  He was the one who said that she was a nobody that came from nothing.  Why should he be believed?  He could have been talking about about his own family for all we know, in his bitter, emo way of saying stuff.  I do not think it was ever super definitive, unless Kathleen Kennedy herself came out and stated it, because she is the one who decides important stuff.  And there is nothing more important in a Star Wars film than something like who her parents were, no way did they leave it up to Johnson.

Also...

That looks dumb as shit and the name is also dumb as shit both as a red herring and a true reveal. Just fucking kill it already.

I had a laugh at this because it is exactly how Kylo would have said it.
