Fuck @ Reylo being real. Icing on the cake.

Hope its a true death. Less we'll go through years of speculation based solely on bringing him back to fuck Rey. But that may be what Disney wants to keep interest.

Anyone who thinks "Reylo is just a meme" must be living in the bubbliest of bubbles...

But yeah, this whole "reflecting the lightning back at the Emperor" thing sounds cack-handed beyond belief.

Much like everything else about Palpatine in IX.

i really wish a rejuvenated emperor would have led to a light saber duel.....but nope, its just a bunch of lightning, words and a quick death.

Jesus its like watching a harry potter duel locked and they spend 10 minutes talking tragedy before harry's parents come in and blast away voldemort................oh shit wait i think that actually happened in movie 4 lol.

I give you rey vs palpatine

Ugh. The Emperor clearly states in Jedi that he has no interest in lightsabers and that they are a "Jedi weapon". Why Lucas felt the need to force that shit into the PT is beyond me.

The Emperor using a lightsaber is like the devil opening that cupboard in the Exorcist. He should be above using weapons.

which is always funny, because the sith invented the modern lightsaber.

Pretty sure it was solely the emperor who hated the saber though, his ability to manipulate and use people was his weapon. Hence why he tells luke hes unarmed and sure enough vader instantly blocks his move.

There's a pretty stark difference between "you're a nobody, you're special because you're you" (an actual good lesson to teach children, in fact!) and "you're the granddaughter of the most powerful villain the galaxy has seen in centuries and you're powerful entirely because you came from him".
YUP. Fucking dumb.

Do we believe that this movie will begin with a flashback though? That seems...odd.

It's still a billion times better than Kylo simply getting yeet'd.

Hopefully the Force ghosts are added back in

Basically says the Ben thrown into abyss thing isn't exactly accurate. That Ben willfully scarifies himself and allows Palpatine to toss him to save Rey and distract Palps.

Says he hears it was tweaked in the reshoots to make Kylo's death more of a self-sacrifice, a sacrifice out of love for Rey.


This sounds just as bad tbh if not worse

Not only is Kylo Ren just a worse Darth Vader but they might actually frame his love for Rey as real love. It’s more possessive than it is anything else and shouldn’t really be validated.

If Palpatine / plaguis could create anakin through the force

And yoda used force weather modification as a force ghost

Kylo could speak to day as s ghost and they could have force ghost relations

I'm not convinced the film actually indicates Kylo feels love for Rey and this isn't just Ward editorializing. That's kind of his thing, every time a terrible new rumor about TROS comes out he has to spin it as a good thing for the movie or the franchise.

I loved the old leak that it would begin with young Luke and Leia, but I guess that's not happening any more.
Post-ROTJ Luke and Leia training, flashback of Han, Leia and Luke all together and all the force ghosts showing up at the end sounded good to me. Too bad either none of it was real to begin with or they removed the footage from the final cut. And I would honestly take a Kylo/Rey romance (no matter how wrong it is) over Kylo, the last in the Skywalker bloodline, just falling down a hole "never to be seen again".

I'm a hardcore Catradora stan and general fan of "enemies-to-lovers" tropes so I can't really comment on the morality of Reylo

"If a boy is a mean bully who lashes out at you and everyone else to a point where he has literally murdered several people who are important to you, that actually means he LOVES you," is such a horrible message to send to young girls, good lord. If this Reylo nonsense is true than good riddance, somehow this movie will be an even bigger trainwreck than we thought.

I mean that’s exactly how Anakin gets Padmé. He murders women and children and she’s okay with it.

The whole thing sounds like Abrams trying to play the female empowerment card...without the slightest idea of how to actually play it.

That's literally supposed to be an unhealthy relationship because Anakin eventually becomes a space tyrant, lol. I don't think we should have parallels between that and the endgame romance of the Skywalker saga between a genuinely good person and another space tyrant.

I mean, WE correctly see Anakin and Padme's relationship as unhealthy, but its clear that Lucas intended it to be a tragic romance in which the relationship was great before Anakin went evil.

what's the force power that Palpy uses to knock up these hapless ladies? is it like 'force push' and 'force choke' but it's like 'force ghost cum' or something?

After TFA I thought Reylo's were out of their minds. I didn't see it at all. Then TLJ basically made it the canon ship of the sequel trilogy, since they were the only two main characters interacting. By now I don't care any more.

Also, I was on board with Buffy-Spike back then so it's not like I have the high ground here.

Post-ROTJ Luke and Leia training, flashback of Han, Leia and Luke all together and all the force ghosts showing up at the end sounded good to me. Too bad either none of it was real to begin with or they removed the footage from the final cut.

Yea, me too. Going full anime with the force ghosts would have been kinda awesome.

The latest leaks say that scene was moved, but it is still in the film. Just not as the opening anymore.
Oh I see. That would be something. Though it would have been one hell of an opening.
