The vast majority of the fandom feels The Last Jedi has unequivocally shut the door on Rey being the daughter of a legacy character, particularly Luke Skywalker. In this series, we’ll make the case that the movie does not close the door, but in fact makes the Rey Skywalker theory just as viable, and immeasurably more meaningful, satisfying and powerful.

Written by robotical712.

This was my first full theory regarding how Rey ended up on Jakku and what my full background theory evolved from. I posted this on the Star Wars Speculation subreddit on April 25, 2016:

The Last Jedi Soundtrack Leak: An Analysis

On reddit’s /r/starwarsleaks subreddit, someone has leaked the track titles of the The Last Jedi soundtrack. Despite a frustrating refusal to post photos of the track titles, they did post the track titles in the comments. Because the photos are solid proof that they have the soundtrack, we can say with confidence that this is the track listing for the Last Jedi:

The Fall of Ben Solo

Written by robotical712

I would like to say up front that I don’t think JJ’s statement in the commentary that Rey and Kylo haven’t met before TFA should be taken absolutely.

It’s based on where I think the ST is going thematically. This incorporates ideas developed in the previous three sections.
