Is this true?

No, he did not get confused and no, this is not a plot hole. In both books it is explained that Rey learned non-human languages, including Wookie and astromech binary, from her interactions with off-worlders. Also she herself notes in her survival guide that she managed to get a computer working at her wrecked AT-AT. She used it to study droid-speak and alien languages so that she could better communicate with people in Niima.

You should check them out. They're great books.


i can believe that, and like the idea as well. however i dont like having to read some book in order to detail an important bit of character info that should have been part of the movie. i dont mind it as much here, since it's not a major plot point. i also read second hand accounts that rey spent a lot of time on ship combat sims, which explains why she can fly the falcon and presumably many other ships. again though, i should not have to find this out from something other than the film.

I assume someone else already mentioned this down below in the thread but if not I'll just comment that Finn didn't understand BB-8.

while that's true, it has nothing to do with the post you quoted.

in the OT and PT, the audience was left to infer that r2 units cannot be understood without text or protocol droid assistance. the 2-way voice communication between rey and bb8 is truly a first.

It's funny because I was literally just watching ESB, and happened upon this scene:

This tells us that Luke(at least) was unable to decipher R2's bleepy-bleep w/o some form of third party translation.

yeah i assumed it was something like this myself. Where they have picked up sort of an ear for a bunch of languages by being around them so much. Kind of like how Han can understand chewie, and had no problem understanding greedo's Rodian in ANH, or jabbas hutt speak in ANH and RotJ.

Cool Theory possibly explained

So after a long discussion with the airmen at my squadron about how does ray and a select few people understand the droids we narrowed it down to binary. In a New Hope, Owen asks if C-3PO understands the binary language of moisture evaporators as well as Bachi..........so if Rey understands the language of binary (since she is a mechanic) then she could understand BB-8 to an extent. BB-8 would be using an updated version of binary/code that can explain why Rey doesn't understand R2-D2, and C-3PO interprets for him. Now luke does understand R2-D2 to a certain extent, as seen on Empire strikes back when they are on Degobah. Just a thought.

To be honest I don't care how Rey understands BB-8. Or Poe for that matter.

However comparing that with Luke and R2 on Dagobah is silly. Luke's more talking to himself than R2.

R2 is the movie's way of physically manifesting Luke's inner monologue. And penchant for beeps.


Also, does anybody else think Luke looks like William Macy in the middle panel?

the point was to show that luke did not understand R2's language.
