Damn, Rey's story is really textbook Hero's Journey:

Call to Adventure: Obviously BB-8, secret plans etc.

"Supernatural" Aid/Mentor: Han & the Millennium Falcon

then it throws in a Refusal of the Call: Boohoo run away into the forest

Crossing the First Threshold: Using her powers for the 1st time, Kylo being something of a Threshold Guardian.

Belly of the Whale: Starkiller Base

Not that it necessarily means much, just fun to connect the dots.

That said the above makes up the "First Act", the "Second Act" including the Road of Trials and... Atonement with the Father. wink

Well, duh... yeah. So is ANH. So is Billy Elliot. A lot of movies are textbook Hero's Journey.

Hero's Journey is not SW property, you know. It belongs to mankind, because we've been telling stories like this for millennia.

Sure, Star Wars tends to follow it quite religiously/ literally though, a lot easier to spot, and an interesting way to predict future story.

It's also a lot more distinct here that in the PT...

On another note, Rey doesn't has a surname as it stands. If she turns out not to be Skywalker do you think they will invent one for her?

I noticed it on my second viewing well before it was announced (saw it again Friday morning OD). It is pretty difficult to here Yoda. But Kenobi saying, “Rey” is surprisingly noticeable (though “these are your first steps” is quite a bit harder to catch.

What? Yoda was the first I heard. Luke's scream. OB1's lines. But maybe all that is so engraved in my brain that it locked right into those familiar words and sounds.

Don't think it will be Luke's daughter now:

Because that just wouldn't be "satisfying" at all, and would instead just be so stupidly obvious that they should have just outright confirmed it in Ep.7, instead of making a "mystery" out of it.


Also given it's Colin Trevorrow saying this, could it be that we don't find out/get confirmation until Episode 9? Damn!

And doesn't sound like he's shying away from the Prequels. Sounds like there could be Prequel connections with the Sequels.

That's your opinion, I'd be satisfied. (please log in to view the image)

Yeah, it's not that clear. But it does look like they want to move beyond the Skywalker family. And in a way, that is honoring Lucas. he said after EPIII that the Skywalker story was done.

And even though Trevorrow isn't THAT specific, I do believe Rey is not a Skywalker. I woud certainly hope so.

I think maybe the obvious is true (she's Luke's daughter) but the revelation of her Mother will be more interesting.

Luke & Rey's theme are overlapped at the end credits to TFA, pretty cool:

But that's just saying: Rey's the new Luke. Not that they are related.

And Rey being OB1's grand daughter... that doesn't make any sense and would contradict the entire Jedi way of life from the canon.
