    I saw that line as a Rey who isn't used to any kind of - coddling, kindness, friendliness - whatever you want to call it. She's really only had herself to depend on and she doesn't know what it's like to have someone literally give her a hand, without expecting something in return.

    Same here. She was like "What are you doing? Stop that!"

    Dark Horse Cheer up. MOTOE is out in 2 months. Actually, a week earlier for you guys. Lots of other Daisy projects to be excited about.

    Take it with a grain of salt but this Disney Store TLJ merch, besides being cool, seems to suggest that glowing Fox thingy from the BTS reel is potentially from the Crait sequence.

    Also interesting to note that MSW said Foxtrot in the leaked toy listing referred to Rey. This image is tying Rey pretty closely to a space fox, and foxtrot is her code name. Could be a coincidence, of course. But it could mean there is some destiny or connection between Rey and this fox. Is it too far-fetched to consider it might be a manifestation of the force, speaking (metaphorically) to Rey through some half-forgotten creature from her pre-Jakku life?

    Wow it took me WAY too long to notice that fox outline! *Runs to look up foxes/fox symbology in myth*

    Thanks :D

    It's an exciting change of pace that 3+ months from release there's still so much about this movie that we don't know, especially from the third act. This glowing fox guy completely flew under my radar. But thank goodness for the Disney Store.

    From the first moment I saw the crystal wolf I thought I was going to belong to the force plot, the wolf don't fit on Canto Bight for me, looks like something mystic.

    Kitsune is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom.

    Star Wars has always had some roots in Japanese myth. Rian could be returning to that well. And Dave Filoni has already added his share of force-sensitive or force aware creatures in Rebels, so it's not without precedent in the new canon.

    Wonder if this will add fuel to the "Ahsoka = wolf" idea...

    The Fox is a symbol of loneliness and isolation trapped in a period of reflection.

    I know this because - well life is funny sometimes. What a strange sad little world we live in. It's kind of ironic.

    The fox is.... Rey's patronus? Lol

    I don't think the AT-ATs on that shirt mean the fox must be a Crait thing, too. After all Rey there is wearing her resistance outfit and still has the old hairdo so I think the shirt is mixing together a lot of important things in Rey's plot, not solely Crait things.

    The idea that the fox appears as a manifestation of the Force to guide her would be cool.

    Nice catch with the fox.

    But now I have that stupid song stuck in my head.

    I like it. Though I hope the final design of the fox is slightly alienified.

    Thanks for sharing. That was very clearly done with a light heart, and he even apologized to "Dais" in a loving way. I'm sure she got a kick out of it too. The idea that anyone in the fandom would be offended/ outraged by this is phenomenally ridiculous to the point of madness.

    There's a fox village in the North of Honshu which goes to show how much these animals are venerated in much of Japan. It's a complex relationship however as they are also traditionally believed to be able to disguise themselves as humans and trick others. They are also strongly associated with the spirit world.

    If I had to take a casual guess, I'd say that the SW fox may act as a sort of spirit guide to Rey in a crypto-rip off of the silver doe in Harry Potter. :D

    It also makes me think of the talking wolf in Carlos Castaneda's trippy books.

    I follow Chris Broad's channel on YT avidly as he has precisely the sort of dry, sarcastic British humour I love! Plus he has some brilliant videos on Japan (shamless plug). :)

    Confirmed: Rey dies and turns into a fox because Rian Johnson hates Daisy Ridley.

    Gigoran Monk it looks very alien to me, or do you mean the fox on the shirt outline?

    Always assumed that a creature having crystals instead of fur might be resident on a planet that has crystals all over it.

    Are you saying that mucky scene where she's played by Stella Cox isn't canon?

    Stop this erasure of my headcanon! Police! I'm being oppressed!

    No, that's the one. Looks like an Arctic Fox. I like it, but would prefer a bit more alienness. Something as simple as removing the canine button nose could do the trick.

    too sad Daisy wasn't attended to a fan meeting in Japan :(((((( and it's funny as we discuss rian johnson..... yesterday he talked about the importance of Rey's arc in the movie. nothing really new but what we can confirm from his word about Rey is that
    1) Rey's journey during the course of the movie is exciting
    2) it's evolved going through adolescence similar to Luke
    3) yet it's very different from Luke ( so I think anything beyond that is a spoiler?)
    4) her journey is going to be a BIG BIG part what we gonna see in the movie.

    start from: 5.06
