You dont have cosplay just the latest version. Cosplay the one you think works best.

I really like the fact that I can watch Star Wars movies and just enjoy them for the flicks that they are and not shred them as personally afronts to fanservice.

Can't wait!

I think it's gunna be quite the opposite of "undoing"

I think it's the opposite and the article seems to support that. He is broken and doesn't trust himself. He seems himself as a failure.

Yup that's what people are intentionally forgetting.

He just ran away! He's a wimpy little coward!

That sentiment misses the point of what he's actually doing on the island

I agree. They aren't going to make her the daughter of Obi-Wan's secret lovechild. There's no point.

The costume basically swapped out his neckerchief & hoodie for a cape.

They also removed his outer long tunic, and changed the patterns of everything. Old Kylo was essentially 3 layers, now it's one with a cape

That article suggests quite a few points that would/could be made via that connection.

What with them constantly drawing parallels to Obi-Wan

Over and over again.

Like, 12 times or something like that.

This is gonna sound stupid, but I have this small feeling we're going to get Oz, McGregor, and Christensen all back for cameos.

Really? I didn't think the article was hinting at that at all.

“The very first step in the writing of this was figuring out why he’s on that island,” Johnson says. “We know that he is not a coward. He’s not just hiding because he’s scared. But we also know that he must know his friends are in danger. He must know the galaxy needs him. And he’s sitting on this island in the middle of nowhere. There had to be an answer. It had to be something where Luke Skywalker believes he’s doing the right thing – and the process of figuring out what that is and unpacking it is the journey for Rey.”

There's no point in making her a Kenobi at all, regardless of explanation, I think. I just don't see what it adds to the story other than simply being an underwhelming twist. Though I will reserve my judgement if they do decide to go this route

A nobody or Skywalker makes the most sense to me still

That sounds really good. I like how they are very obviously trying to subvert expectations after the "rehash" criticism of TFA.

I think the word on the street was that Kylo's lightsaber could be the green saber, now with a broken/bleeding crystal.


Just a rumor of course.

I really, really hope Luke's arc is not realizing that he's wrong about the Jedi being finished. I hope he sticks to his guns and trains Rey to move beyond Jedi and Sith towards a deeper connection with the Force.

Fuck. Looking at the article again, I only read the first section. They do mention Obi-Wan quite a bit, even if its mostly comparisons to old Luke. Hmmm...

The "Rey is Obi-Wan's grand-daughter" theory would be interesting if it connected to a later Obi-Wan spin-off film detailing how Kenobi originally hooked up with her gradmother...who I'd presume would be a female tusken raider, or something. Otherwise, Obi-Wan breaking his vows and having it off with some random woman during the events of the prequels would seem very out of character for someone so famously committed to the Jedi Code.

I give it even odds Hux gives Kylo shit about and takes a saber to the face in return.

Okay the Porg is freaking adorable. I actually screamed a little at how cute that thing is.

We’ve already seen John Boyega’s conscience-stricken Stormtrooper try to escape from a life of wrongdoing. In The Last Jedi, Finn finds himself ready to abandon the good guys, too.

You can’t blame him. He has been critically wounded by a lightsaber attack that still burns and has never quite healed. He watched Han Solo, another reluctant hero, die horribly at the hands of his own son.

Finn did his part. Starkiller base has been destroyed. Now he wants out.

oh god fucking damn it
