Right! How can the Emperor not be there? He's a presence in six movies, and if the new books are any indication, he will not be forgotten soon ... Or are we supposed to sympathize to some extent with everyone on the poster to some extent?
Empire's End Spoiler:

There's no Snoke, no Tarkin, no Jabba ... and a lot of people like those characters, especially the latter two ... wouldn't they be part of the history as well? Very interesting.

Actually I think that the emphasis on the poster is The Skywalker saga, not the whole SW universe.

They obviously wanted to make some balanace on that poster as well (Though I'am not an expert for that kind of art - however I'am still able to catch the glimpse of messages I think they're trying to send with it.
The Balance is one of them - that's why I think Hux and Phasma found their place on the poster - only to mirror Finn & Poe on the right.

(I'll definitely think that Jabba, Tarkin or if you want Qui-Gon most of them - bring more weight to saga, than Hux and Phasma.)

The Celebration poster is interesting, very soap opera-ish and it is good to see Hayden Christensen back on promotional posters, he is beautiful. I like that Kylo is underneath Han and their attack stance is so similar it says something about Kylo's shoot first think later personality, he is Han's boy. For me I see Rey very much in the same position as Obi, both in position beneath a pair of Skywalkers. Rey ends TFA very similar to the way Obi ended ANH, helping Leia, being a hope and delivering Anakin's Saber to Luke. And, cleverly the space romances are also parallel. Well played LF, well played.

As far as what Saber Kylo was holding in the pre TFA trailer, for this I default to the fan boys, if there are things they know it is  "pew pew pew", space ships and sabers. Pretty much many of them thought it was Luke's ROTJ green saber and we now know that Luke still has that Saber, and it's near twin is Obi's saber. So.

It would look like rey is the descendant of the skywalker line had they not cut it off with obi wan. He disrupts that visual line on the right.

Many points on that list really aren't plot holes, they're more a consequence of JJ's mystery box style and Kasdan's 'less is more' attitude on exposition. For example, why does Kylo take his mask off in front of Rey? Why does he lose to her, and struggle against Finn? How does Rey seem so powerful after no training? These are all explained if you understand from the movie that Kylo is weakened after killing his father and feels compassion for Rey, but that has clearly not been a widespread reading.

Agreed 100%. Maybe it's just because "Reylo" was more obvious to me than to others, but I didn't see Kylo unmasking for Rey first as a detraction to the story. Honestly that's one my most hated fanboy complaints (He should have only unmasked for Han!!! Ugh...). Same with the Mary Sue complaint. I have even seen that discussed at length here. If you look at it from the Reylo perspective, it explains everything. Not only was he injured, he basically let her win. Look at his face after it's been slashed by her. He looks more turned on than angry...

Yes! That's one thing I will never understand, why his last response doesn't get more attention from the general audience, because it's not an "I'll get you, Gadget" or even a "You better run NOW because you won't have a piece left by the time I'm through you" look. He doesn't even look angry. He looks awed. Even if we didn't have the Intimate Cam during the interrogation scene, Kylo's elevator eyes and innuendos, or the fact that he offered to train her instead of kill her, that shot of him lying in the snow staring at her pretty much sold me on the fact that they're going to be a thing.

I'm starting to wonder if Kylo doesn't like being seen without his mask on because he fears someone might recognize him.

I think the First Order (and most of the galaxy) doesn't know that Ben Solo = Kylo Ren. I mean, Poe in his interrogation doesn’t seem like he is aware of that. He could have taunted Kylo about it in the interrogation scene (especially that we know Poe is a Leia fanboy, so I could see him going along variations of “STOP MAKING YO’ MOMMA CRY AND BRING YO SORRY *SS BACK HOME”), but he doesn’t.

So if Kylo = Ben seems to be a big secret, that might be *one* explanation for the mask (among others).

BUT he did unmask for Rey, and that might not be just to peacock around her, it might also be a sign that he trusts her with his secrets, and that’s HUGE, considering it’s a given he wouldn’t give that level of trust to just anyone, and the fact that he despises liars and traitors brings that to a whole other level.

It always pisses me off when people complain about the unmasking. He does it in front of Rey because he feels she's different from the rest. He is interested in her, and he doesn't want her to be afraid. He already feels the strange connection between them (and Rey probably feels it too, since she saw him in the Forceback repeatedly.)

Or just the usual complaints of self-proclaimed experts in everything discussing down to the bolt that's not even shown on-screen but totally unable to read actors' performances. I see the first one and I am already out. I did not make it to 40 because seriously the author needs to learn how to watch movies.

I can understand unmasking complaints to a degree, because, while Rey is going to be his most important relationship in the series overall, Kylo only just met her in TFA and their dynamic has only just been set up. So, seen within TFA as an individual film, Han is a far more meaningful relationship so it feels right to many people that Kylo should have unmasked for him. I think that once the other movies are out and the importance of Rey/Kylo is made really obvious, the unmasking will be reassessed.

As for people not seeing Kylo's compassion for Rey, well in the film he doesn't really show any (he shows interest, yes, but compassion is not the same as interest). I know that many wish that Snoke's mention of compassion was in the film, but in the book it makes sense because, if memory serves me right, Kylo releases Rey from her bonds and gives her assurances during the interrogation scene. None of this happens in the film.

My observation of the poster is:

Obi-wan is in between Anakin and Padme - he didn't approve of their relationship
Luke is in between Han and Leia - which he was for a large amount of the OT
Luke is in between Kylo and Rey - is he going to stand in their way??? Wink

I understand the criticism, but at the same time there's no way to respond to it when you think about it. They way they present this Kylo/Ben (cruelty/vulnerability) dichotomy in TFA, it wouldn't really fit to leave the unmasking for the bridge scene, which is near the end of the film. And I just can't imagine Kylo keeping the mask on with Rey throughout, it was a very deliberate contrast with Poe and served an important purpose. Kylo doesn't show his real face to everyone, he was even reluctant to do so in front of his own father. The fact that it is a conscious choice with Rey is very telling and one of the key signs that the two will be important to each other in the future and will establish an emotional connection. I agree what we saw can't be described as compassion and we shouldn't pretend it is. Ever since their first meeting in the forest Kylo showed a peculiar interest in Rey, he wanted to have her on his side because of her enormous raw power. Yet I also think there's more to it, it may not be compassion, but they did connect when they explored each others'minds. None of the other characters share this type of connection. Kylo and Rey, whether they like it or not, understand each other better than anyone else ever could because they're both special and have suffered a great deal.

Ideally (for some people), if Kylo and Rey were meant to be portrayed as nothing more than enemies without a hint of romantic undertones, he should've kept the mask on and displayed a similar, even if toned down, behavour as he did with Poe. Kylo should've attacked Rey with all his anger the moment he saw the saber in her hand and tried to finish her off instead of waiting and staring at his opponent, allowing her to gain the upper hand. However, as we know, none of this happened because it's not what their dynamic is supposed to be like. There are just way too many deliberate choices, which point in a different direction.

^Mte, the point is not "why does Kylo unmasks himself for Rey?" (even if I think the answer it's pretty obvious), but that he does it immediately and without hesitation after her remark, while he couldn't care less about Poe's comment and was uncomfortable when Hux saw him. The only other person he unmasks himself for is his father so the movie wanted you to notice that he acts very differently around Rey and that he cares about her opinion. And to me the way it was filmed also says a lot about their future relationship.

Him killing Lor San Tekka makes sense after learning Kylo's current and past relationship with his family, I always thought that the main reason why he killed him is that San Tekka definetely hit a veeeeery raw nerve. Later in the movie we learn that Kylo is torn apart and trying to shun the light away, and here comes someone that reminds him that his belonging is not with the dark side and mentioning his family. That was him being in denial and not wanting to hear the truth (and showing him killing someone while you still don't know his story or who is parents are make it seem like he's your traditional bad*** evil guy who stabs everyone). He tries to do the same with Han, but in the end it proves to be his first steps in the right direction.

Oh, I definitely agree about the compassion thing. In the movie, he doesn't show it at all.

But I really don't get the "unmasking" complaints. It was obvious for me in my first viewing that he did it because Rey would be special to him in the story. It was a plot device, and a necessary one. Up until that point, Kylo was stoic, reserved and completely put together (except for his tantrum when Mitaka mentioned 'the girl'). His unmasking was at the perfect moment to make his duality explicit.

People just complain about it because they wanted him to be Darth Vader 2.0 and wear that mask up until the end.

I thought Kylo showed some compassion here:



It's subtle and kinda ambiguous but he seems to care. Also I think he removed his mask because he sensed that she was afraid.

@WhatGirl

I watched that scene recently with headphones, and right before the "Don't be afraid, I feel it too", you hear sort of a "ka-thunk" noise that's distinct from the other Force noises going on in the scene.

It got me wondering if that was their "Force connection" forming, and if the "Don't be afraid, I feel it too" was in reference to them feeling that connection forming...

@iseeanisland

I rewatched TFA recently and I think I know which sound you mean! That's definitely possible, I mean it's confirmed that they do have some kind of a connection so it may very well have formed during the interrogation.

And there's this:
The story possibilities are interesting if it was to turn out that Rey and Kylo have no blood connection. It has been suggested to me that the interrogation sequence between Kylo and Rey has ramifications for the  sequel. The possibilities…

I love how Rey and Kylo are the only ones with lightsabers. #forceusercouple #cuttingourweddingcake

@Xylo Ren

My observation of the poster is:

Obi-wan is in between Anakin and Padme - he didn't approve of their relationship
Luke is in between Han and Leia - which he was for a large amount of the OT
Luke is in between Kylo and Rey - is he going to stand in their way??? Wink
@Rogue Rey

How can you omit trifecta of C3PO, R2D2 and BB-8. Rolling Eyes

Also look at positioning of Finn's and Poe's heads looking at the same direction.

Kylo's lightsaber and Rey's lightsaber how they're placed basically like a two side of the coin.
