She's a typical Mary Sue. Considering they're bringing back Luke and Palpatine, instead of sticking with Rian Johnson's vision, just shows they know they fucked up. That and they have no vision of their own. This will probably be fan service to the millionth degree. I'm skipping.
There were 99 other problems with the film imo, and I don't think anyone can confidently pinpoint any one particular reason for a course correction in IX.
I don't like how Rey got so strong before training, but that was honestly one of the smallest issues I had with the film.
And I'd wager the issue people feel more strongly about is how they handled Luke, given that his character has such a long legacy.
But in TLJ, Luke who would even see the good in Darth Vader,
Emphasis on 'first'.
That's just not his character. I didn't buy it.
And then there was the map to Skywalker. But
he didn't want to help out even when he heard that his best friend had been killed.
There were so many issues I had with that film, I'd have to write an essay to go through half of them.
And even if they revive
that doesn't necessarily mean J.J. Abrams disagrees with Rian Johnson's vission of Luke (although I would hope it does). It could also be because of something like Leia's actor dying, and they originally planned to have her play an important role at the end. But now they need a different character to fill that spot.Last edited by Hiku - on 12 April 2019
