    Well the Falcon is the only ship the resistance.... err rebels.... err resistance have left and the ship belongs to Chewie so I guess until they build their fleet up again they will need him to be the designated driver.

    ...but technically it probably belongs to Kylo or Leia or both. The Falcon could become the new object Kylo is after in IX...;)

    The Falcon belongs to Leia and she loans it out to Chewie and Rey.

    When TFA ended, Rey had 4 things.

    Something old, her staff

    Something new, her blaster

    Something borrowed, the Falcon

    And something blue, the lightsaber

    You think it belongs to Rey? Leia might have some claim to it, but it should be Chewies.

    I don't think Chewie would put material possessions above doing the right thing. Would you expect him to take the Falcon and run, like Han in ANH or Finn in TFA nearly did?

    People said he did nothing in this film? Bah. :p

    I really hope that they do get R2and threepio to do something that is actually more then just an extended backaround character.

    BB-8 has taken R2D2's place really.

    I like to think Han saw Rey and Finn as his surrogate children and chewie saw how Han bonded with Rey over her piloting, searching for Luke, her parents, flying skills etc. Han cared for her -- I mean he went to starkiller base to find her, so that's why chewie is flying with her and giving her the captains seat. I feel his life debt to Han extended to her as it did to Leia etc.

    Oddly not to kylo. chewie aimed to kill in TFA.

    Kylo killed the previous life debt owner so I think he is disqualified.

    As far as Chewie goes It will be heartbreaking if he never reconnects with his son Cha-ka.

    Only this time he will stall Kylo so he can't escape the moon crash, taking him with himself... It would work for me. Make Chewie the Big Damn Hero of the third movie.

    They did reunite. He stayed with his family again for a while between ROTJ and TFA.

    Yet Rey's the one in the gunners chair on Crait, while Chewie does all the flying...and his experience shows through. Chewies will likely continue to fly the falcon in service of the reborn rebellion...but at the end of the day I feel it's his ship...and the movie is showing us that. (Unless Lando comes back for it of course)

    Honestly, I kind of Hope Finn and Rey hunt down DJ at the beginning of Episode 9 and take his stolen ship for themselves, separate them even further from the OT heroes. Allow the Falcon to be enshrined in a museum, a symbol of her OT crew and what they accomplished.

    The final ending montage of IX should include Chewie arriving on Kashyyyk and being greeted by his family :)
