My View of The Last Jedi Through the Lens of the SWSC ReySky Interpretation

One of our readers asked a question I’ve been thinking about lately and is worth answering here:

Do you think you would appreciate TLJ more if Rian confirmed that your case for Rey Skywalker was his intention all along?

My reply after the jump.

Although Finn and Rey were initially billed as the two leads of the new Star Wars trilogy, it feels to many as though Finn’s storyline has fallen to the wayside. Here we offer an interpretation of how Finn’s character is still central to the story of the Skywalker Saga, and a prediction for his role in relation to the family moving forward.

In this section, we examine The Last Jedi itself in light of the ideas developed in the previous section.

The Definitive “The Last Jedi” Case for Rey Skywalker – Creator Commentary

“[Rey’s parentage] is integral. It is important. It’s something that, interestingly enough, even as we were sitting and coming up with The Force Awakens, it was one of the central questions we were all asking ourselves.”

Kathleen Kennedy, April 2017

There’s been a lot of discussion within the fan community about how much of the Sequel Trilogy’s backstory and future plot is planned out, and how much is being composed as the writers go along.

In many cases, Rian’s statements are in direct contradiction with what other members of the Sequel Trilogy’s production team have said, and yet, nobody from Lucasfilm has stepped forward to set the record straight. What’s to make of this?

The vast majority of the fandom feels The Last Jedi has unequivocally shut the door on Rey being the daughter of a legacy character, particularly Luke Skywalker. In this series, we’ll make the case that the movie does not close the door, but in fact makes the Rey Skywalker theory just as viable, and immeasurably more meaningful, satisfying and powerful.
