Luke Watching Rey.jpgI re-watched The Last Jedi in its entirety again last week for the first time since before putting the The Last Jedi Case for Rey Skywalker together. The case, combined with other insights and events, made for a very different viewing experience.

Descendants of the Chosen One, Rey and Jakku

Extract from Robotical712′s Background Theory

One unknown I’ve been grappling with is why Snoke would want Rey taken to Jakku in the first place. It obviously had to do with what the Emperor was so interested in there, but it wasn’t clear beyond that.
