One of the most common objections to Rey being a Skywalker is that it would mean Luke had abandoned her on Jakku, destroying his noble and heroic character. However, this is not the only possible option for the story of Rey’s separation from her father, and there are, in fact, hints within the films that point a different direction.Continue reading Luke Didn’t Abandon Rey On Jakku (And Here’s Why)
As we approach the middle of the post-TLJ, pre-Episode IX doldrums, it’s time for a little bit of fun, pointless speculation to make the days go by a bit faster. And what better way to do that than to spend several days meticulously compiling a list of all the actresses who could potentially play Rey’s mother in Episode IX? (There are probably better ways, I just chose this one). Below the jump, I explore which of these extremely similar looking British, brunette white ladies (insert beleaguered sigh here) is the best candidate to play the part, ranked in order from to least to most ridiculous. How serious am I about these choices? Not very. Or am I? Who can say. Read on to find out….

The Legends of Luke Skywalker is structured as a series of stories being told within another story, known as a framing story. The framing story is entirely canon, the stories that the characters tell however exist as in universe legends. Like legends that exist in our world they are subject to error from exaggeration, romanticization, being altered slightly with each telling, or could be fabricated entirely. While their canonicity is questionable, the stories are worth examining because there is often a bit of truth in Legends.
