    Hopefully not a love affair with Kylo

    Do you think she will start a new Jedi order?

    No. They wanted to rid of this and they did get rid of this

    I mean a new type. Help Force users but not formal like the Jedi of old.

    Will be great to watch Rey's character arc! Sure her character will have changed a lot come IX.

    I think it is not the cup of tea for hardcore fans

    They'll be some new Order, but it will be much, much different. It might allow both teachings from the light and dark to maintain balance.

    Really depends on what happens with Kylo, too.

    I don't expect anything from Rey in IX, her character became completely unsympathetic for me. :(

    I look forward to her continued development and ho the choices made in VIII will affect her decisions in IX; her journey is a hero's journey we have never seen in Star Wars and I am excited to see how TPTB and JJ Abrams tell us that great story. =D=

    Rey felt seriously off in this one. A lot of characters felt off in this one. But Daisy's excitement for JJ hopefully means that he'll fix a lot of issues that TLJ had.

    Wait until she kills Kylo in Episode IX and you'll see that she returns sympathetic. Now speaking seriously, I hope that JJ can fix the **** that Rian did with the characters, in the end and JJ is the one who "created" them.

    This. I had a lot of disappointments with TLJ, but this was probably my biggest let down. Rey was setup perfectly after TFA to be the main character and to build TLJ around her story, and it was nothing of the sort. Daisy was great in the action scenes, but her scenes with Luke on Achto just didn;t feel right or come across well. Whether that was down to the script, or Daisy not performing, or RJ not getting the best from her I'm not sure. It seemed bland, plain, and one dimensional. She was easily the stand out for me in TFA so my hope with JJ back in control is that he fixes this for IX

    Whats your problem man?

    Why are you unsympathetic to Rey?

    Why are you abandoning something you obviously are very passionate for? They obviously went a different direction in TLJ than you wanted but I don't see that as justification to abandon this saga?

    I'm a woman.
    Rey became cold and superficial in TLJ, so with Luke gone I have no character to follow. Also no interest in IX, because TLJ was the closing chapter of this saga with Luke gone.

    Hey, honestly sooner or later it had to happen. Now we can at least sit back and watch with the smile on our face which story fraud JJ will provide.

    I think that Rey is going to be stronger than ever in IX.

    I'm hoping that's the case for all of the protagonists come IX because yeah like a lot of people have said they were definitely off in a lot of ways. But IX will hopefully feature them in a more mature and competent light.

    I wanna be a little careful about how much stronger Rey becomes in IX, because while she does certainly have a strong affinity to the Force, Star Wars is all about teamwork and I'm hoping it isn't too overboard or else everyone else around would look a little too weak/useless in comparison.

    I posted it before but I think we desperately need a scene where Finn and Rey are fighting stormtroopers, Rey deflecting shots with her lightsaber, and Finn absolutely nailing every single one of his. That way there's more complementary going on.

    Where the fcuk were you when that ***** blew up the Jedi Academy?
    You called down lightning to strike dead a tree already in a bad state when you could have warned Luke about Snoke?
    Six freaking years and you throw a wobbler because Luke got blindsided when you or any of the others could have done something!
    Looks like attachments ARE important if that's your excuse!

    You know what? I finally figured it out. TLJ feels like the Age Of Ultron of the ST. You can probably figure out why for a number of reasons
