Kylo Ren’s Fate in Episode IX

Image result for kylo ren

Written by robotical712, speaking for myself only.

Kylo Ren is perhaps the franchise’s most divisive character. Some see him as a victim of his identity and the circumstances of his childhood. For those who see him that way, he’s a misguided and a lonely individual who is only missing love and understanding. To others he’s megalomaniacal monster who has refused every chance at redemption and must be put down. Unsurprisingly, speculation and opinions over what his fate will be in IX also vary the most of all of the characters. From an unrepentant death to atonement and forgiveness, little can stoke emotions like the debate over where his character is headed.

Return of the Last Jedi: A Throne Room Parallel Video

– article and video study by HanSpinel

Several commonalities exist in the form of plot lines and visual parallels between The Last Jedi (TLJ) and the Original Trilogy (OT). Here, I explore the similarities among the “Throne Room” scenes of Return of the Jedi and The Last Jedi, most of which play out in a beat-for-beat fashion (video below).

Star Wars: Found Families, Bloodline, and Arthurian Legend

– written by HanSpinel

Star Wars has always focused on family, and though the Skywalker Saga is unsurprisingly led by the Skywalkers, it is chock full of “found family” stories. In this article, I will highlight how unique the Skywalker bloodline story actually is to the saga, and how the concept of “bloodline” for the Skywalkers – in contrast to “family” – is presented as a burden each generation must overcome through choice, and not destiny. In other words, the Skywalkers themselves promote empowerment regardless of origin.

I will also argue that each trilogy has pitted Skywalker vs. Skywalker, and that the Sequel Trilogy is no different. Following, I revisit themes and narratives associated with Arthurian Legend as it pertains to the battle between Kylo Ren and Rey over the saber that belonged to Luke Skywalker, and his father before him – the Skywalker Legacy Saber. I conclude that several lines of reasoning all support the Star Wars Shadow Council’s Case of a delayed familial reveal for Rey Skywalker, Daughter of Light, and Heiress Apparent to Anakin Skywalker.

The Duality of the Skywalker Legacy

– Han Spinel

This video highlights the Duality of the Skywalker Legacy born from the choices of the Chosen One: Vader and the Darkness | Anakin and the Light. Kylo Ren seeks out the power of Darkness from Vader; he seeks to finish what his Grandfather started. Ultimately, only the Light of the Skywalker Legacy Saber calls out, and it chooses Rey. She follows a path hauntingly similar to both Anakin and Luke, but Rey’s last chapter is not yet written….
