"Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker" Trailer

Forums - Movies Discussion - "Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker" Trailer

She's not a Mary Sue, looking at the clues of the films, IMO Rey is Anakin Skywalker 2.0.

I bet in Ep. 9 it will be revealed that her mother was a nobody ... but her actual birth father is literally a nobody. She is born of the Force, just like Anakin, there is no father for either of them, they are the only two pure children of the Force.

And in Buddhist style "Chosen Ones" like Anakin and Rey are linked like reincarnated Dalai Lamas, since Star Wars cribs heavily from Eastern religions.

That's why

1.) Anakin's Lightsaber calls out for her

2.) She has Force abilities well beyond what a novice should have. Particularly aptitude with piloting, mechanical stuff, and lightsaber fighting ... all things Anakin was good at. She has access to Anakin's abilities, in IX I suspect you will see her start to experience some of his memories too. 

3.) When Kylo tells her she "comes from nothing" in The Last Jedi ... he's literally telling is the truth, lol. There's no father, she's born from literally nothing but the Force.  

It all fits and basically closes every mystery box. "Rise of the Skywalker" means the Skywalker bloodline lives through her, since Skywalker bloodline originates from the Force directly and not from a person. Luke, Leia, and Kylo have it by biological birth, but Anakin and Rey are special as they have it directly from the Force.

I would have liked her to have had some more fleshed out learning and hardship before being as skilled as she is now because that helps us relate more to that kind of characters,i think the last jedi handled this very badly and focussed too much on sidepaths and a wacky spaceship chase.

Your points trying to defend her against Mary Sue status just helps reinforce the fact that she is a Mary Sue.  It was the same road Lucas was seemingly about to go down with Anakin.  Fortunately, he had the sense to change course, or maybe just listened to criticism, and didn't just have him the best at everything for no good reason.

And no, using the lazy "it's the Force" excuse doesn't fly here.  The Force is something one must be trained in to master it, not just master it on your own in a matter of days.  Even the "chosen one" Anakin had to train under Obi-Wan for over a decade to get as good as he was.  Even Kylo, who Luke states in TLJ, was the only other time he experienced power like Rey's, had to train for a decade or more.

Im sorry i dont care about toxic masculinity and man who cant handle strong females. Get your self a confidence and open your mind. There is a life outside your Man Cave.  Anyway, i like the trailer, more a teaser.  Cant wait.

Guys don't really hate strong female characters though, they existed in films far before this new progressive bullshit started.

I think the real problem is new movies suck and not just because they cater to SJWs.

Agreed. Some take this laughable stance that if you don't like the new trilogy or Rey, "oh you're just threatened by strong female characters!" The funny thing is, I really think it's the opposite for most of these viewers - at least it is for me. I really enjoy strong female characters - those that are believable and have depth, flaws, etc. Which is why I don't like Rey. Rey doesn't have much in the way of these traits. Rey is NOT a strong female character, in the sense that she has no depth. She's not relatable. 

Katnis Everdeen is one of my favorite characters of the last decade. Yet Rey just gives me a constant feeling of "meh, why should I care?" Well, why is this? It's because Rey is not well written. And the acting isn't particilarly memorable either. And it doesn't help that she's basically been relagated to super-hero status with how untouchable she is, and I'm not typically crazy about cheesy super hero films.

Sure, you can argue she's a Jedi in training, and thus powerful and able to overcome much, but unlike Luke, she just seems to coast by and overpower everything with ease. (though you can largely say this about Anakin and many of the Jedia in the prequels, at least Lucas knew to give Akakin his inner struggles with his mother, his love with Padame, his thurst for power conflicting with his morals, etc. Rey just rings extremely hollow, boring, and souless. It rings as incredibly superficial and pandering to me. And we all know Luke was far from perfect, even weak at times, and had to overcome a lot. 

That isn't a powerful female character to me. This is a boring cardboard cutout and a lazy protagonist. And I would wager many women would agree with me (and I have seen many take a similar stance). Women want female characters they can relate to just like we do. And this usually means characters that may be powerful, but that also have depth, obstacles, and flaws to deal with. I see very little of this with Rey (or most of the new trilogy characters for that matter), which I think is a large part of the reason it feels like this new trilogy is just boring and lacking a soul for the most part. Ironically Kylo is the most interesting aspect of this new trilogy for the most part, because he's at least gvien some depth and flaws.



The problem with the trilogy is the way they are making it. The story is not consistent because every chapter is written and directed by someone else. Its a trilogy torn apart by different visions.

Interesting. I see Lando, Leia.. so that’s good. And if the laugh at the end is Palpatine they kimd of redeemed the trilogy, it was always weird that there’d be someone else that’s that powerful. Palpatine and Vader would’ve known, with Palpatine being perhaps the most powerful Force user ever.

She's going to jump over that advanced tie and slice the cockpit in the trailer guaranteed.

Obi-wan and his high ground be damned. Rey making Anakin "super sayain medi-cholrian count chosen one" Skywalker look like a padawan.

She's a Mary Sue. Indisputable

Jedi Master = Advanced Tie.  M'kay.

Corrupted Anakin fighting against a Jedi Master, who knew him best, who was stronger than him, while Anakin was incredibly emotional, thus making him weaker.

Prophesy is often a duel edged blade.  Anakin did exactly as his 'chosen' status was supposed to do.  Balance the force by killing most of the Jedi.

Emotional Anakin weaker? Tell that to Dooku. Whom he sliced through like butter. The same Dooku that fought yoda to a stalemate.

Butter. Go YouTube the dual.

I'm sorry. As great as Obi-wan is, he's no where near Anakin. I'm sure making the transition from light to dark played a part... But not enough. He's literally a child of the force.

No way Rey has the natural ability or connection to the force to outperform Anakin. In any facet of the Jedi arts.



The trailer looked pretty average. Nothing too revealing there.

That name though, wow is that a shit name! Skywalker has already risen! Twice in fact with both Anakin and Luke. That title makes it sound like a prequel or something



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I didn't like TLJ so I can't say I have real hype for this one. I didn't detest the movie as much as some people do but it's probably in the bottom 3 in my SW list though.



Excited for it.


I didnt like TLJ as much as previous films but thats fine - I still enjoyed it and will continue enjoying the series as it goes forward.

Huge Star Wars fan.
