What I want to see in TLJ:

Kylo dealing with the repercussions of killing his father



Rey dealing with the after effects of succumbing to the Dark Side - because let's face it, that's exactly what she did
Finn dealing with the repercussions of turning against the FO

Luke and Leia revealing their flaws as people

Guys I am so freaking JAZZED over that interview! This is literally the best, most informative, and most vindicating interview thus far regarding everything! He's completely validating everything we've theorized/hoped for about Kylo Ren and the """"importance""" of Rey's origin.

I'm on cloud nine right now, especially with what he's saying about Kylo! What a great start to the day!

I really do, and I'm excited as all get out at what we can bring to the table.  I love his comments about Kylo, and anyone would be a fool to see redemption is not a given at this point.  Still, he's lying through his teeth that he has complete free reign.

I had the luxury of attending DragonCon this weekend.  My favorite panels were the ones with the new canon authors, including Claudia Grey, Timothy Zahn, EK Johnson and Delilah Dawson.  These authors kept saying no one talks about the Story Group, as a joke, and that's really what LF wants to convey.  From LF's perspective towards the audience, knowing that the SG is working behind the scenes is kind of like seeing the little man behind the curtain, taking away the magic.  It's silly, I know, but I think that's what they're going for.  At least for me, knowing the SG is in place gives me comfort that we won't get so many freaking plot holes this time around, and much less contradiction.  I'm not dumb enough to think these stories magically create themselves on their own, which is what LF seems to want to portray with Plotgate.  

Keeping on this same topic, I attended a panel about Disney's purchase of LF and what it means for the franchise.  The majority of the topic centered around Star Wars land: Galaxy's Edge at both Disney theme parks in the US.  I'll tell you as a Disney park fan already, I'm excited as hell about this.  If you stay at the SW themed hotel, you get a completely immersive experience as if you yourself are in the GFFA.  I can't write up all of the details without being too long winded, but know that they do not want you seeing or remembering a hint of the outside world while you're there.  You are no longer yourself but instead an assigned character when you check in.  There are no signs for the rides or even wait times.  You have to look for the rides yourself, which will not exactly be obvious where they're located.  It sounds utterly fabulous!!!

I think the same rules apply to the Plotgate debacle. They're trying to keep that magic going without spoiling the fact that this is still a business with employees in the real world that keep everything moving.  I don't exactly agree with this method as all it did was shake everyone's faith in the writing, even those outside our group.  Still, the picture is becoming a bit clearer and all I can do is accept it is what it is.
@IoJovi

Lucasfilm have a 'vision' for this trilogy. JJ had to follow it, Rian is following it (however vehemently he may deny it) and Colin Trevorow just got fired for not wanting to follow it.

No way in hell have they not planned and mapped out the endgame, even if what happens in between is up to the individual directors.

cheers cheers cheers

The part about validating what were were theorizing - that's your "creative freedom" right there. He understood TFA and took it from there so why wouldn't he have a relatively free reign when he understands where the story is going? OTOH, if you don't than highway, I guess.

@soulluos wrote:This sums up Rian's treatment of female characters pretty well. You should all be worried actually.

Rian Johnson's career up to pre-TLJ really doesn't care for women. Zero female leads. Breaking Bad that he also worked on briefly is a male power fantasy.

Brick - psycho girlfriend
Brothers Bloom - 'manic pix dream girl'-friend & nearly mute woman (Bang Bang)
Looper - mom to psycho child



People should have been keeping a closer eye on him than 'Home Base' Trevorrow. It's less obvious but the problems have always been there with Johnson. This is why you have to hope the studio controls him more than he'll admit.



If Rian has free control, I will guarantee you that Rey get's shafted.
@soulluos

I am feeling this a tad bit, Reylo are co protaganists, I always thought that from first viewing, in fact I felt that Kylo was the more important character because of Han and Leia's concern for their son and knowing that Kylo was the Skywalker immediatly made him important to the overall saga. Yet that was all JJ's doing and had nothing to do with RJ.

I'm not getting that from Rian at all. I know that there's a headhunt on other forum where Rian's CV about female characters wouldn't have been questioned if he'd said that Rey and Finn were two halves of the protagonist (like Rey and Kylo) or the heart of TLJ (like rey and Luke). I know you are not one of them but there's a significant double standard going on in some circles so I'm calling them out.  Very Happy

Looper also features an Asian woman who barely talks.

Home Base is so crass that it's hard to take Trevorrow seriously, even though I want to be forgiving of what appears to be a student film.  I think that although Johnson's films don't feature women as leads, the films themselves are nonetheless complex. I just watched Looper and found it quite riveting, even though I can't usually make it through gun-laden action films.

@vaderito

Funny how these 'concerns' are popping up now. Its been more than a year since filming wrapped on TLJ and even longer since Rian was announced to be the director of TLJ. At least with Trevorrow people had every right to be concerned and they were from the get go.

Kathy Kennedy and Bob Iger seem pleased with what Rian has done with TLJ. Don't see the need to be worried.

@soulluos The poster also believes in Soloist (Anastasia crap) so he definitely does not inspire respect around here. I'm sorry that I don't find his worry of Rian credible in any way cause I haven't seen any reason why I should. He went as far as citing Rian's younger sister as a proof that Rey is a Solo. That's some next level of reaching.

It's OK to post other people's thoughts for discussion sake, though, but if they are not credible they'll be called out like Zeroh, MoviePilot, Helmet Faker, etc.

@Mana Concerns always pop up when Rey and Kylo are mentioned in the same sentence or packaged in the same toy box or whatever. Nobody blinks an eye at Rey sharing the heart of the story with Luke but it's a definite slight on her status as a main protagonist if she and Kylo are two halves of the whole. Rolling Eyes In the meantime, people who always raise those concerns have been known for plotting how Finn should hijack the story from Rey and be revealed as the true hero. Like I said in another post, uproar over Relatable Kylo had nothing to do with Kylo but with sinking headcanons, theories and ships.

Vanity Fair, EW, Empire and the recent NY interview, does Rian directly talk about Rey? Never. And if he does, he changes the subject to Luke or Kylo. This is supposed to be Rey's story, why not talk about her a little bit? Rian just doesn't give me any confidence that he can do Rey's character justice. At this stage, Colin has talked more about Rey than Rian does.

Not to mention that nobody (I don't mean nobody here, but "elsewhere") seemed especially interested in discussing Rian's repeated emphasis on Robert Bly last spring. I said back then that Bly's focus on the male psyche and male wounds is a bit of a concern, and fans had better hope Rey gets her fair share of "respecting the shadow" and coming to terms with it. Otherwise she's effectively sidelined, as other characters get the interesting psychodrama.

Instead, said fans have been keen on keeping Rey as far away from all shadow and darkness as possible. Heaven forbid should even her pinky finger touch a shadow of any kind.

I'm not concerned at this stage. If Rey becomes an on-looker in her own story, then I'll complain. But these people who are panicking now are completely oblivious to the classic heroine's journey, so no wonder they're panicking like mad.

@soulluos

You will find that on this forum we've talked quite a bit about Rey coming across as a prop to Luke's drama in these articles. Marketing has managed to make Rey sound like Luke's fixer, and Rose like Finn's fixer, though this wasn't at all the impression we got of Rose at SWC. Before Empire Kylo was hardly even mentioned, so that wasn't much of a concern.

Even Daisy talks more about Luke than Rey. Don't you think this might just be because anything else to talk about would be too big a spoiler?

But he talks about Rey,  it's just that he talks about Rey in the same sentences with Kylo or Luke. But he actually talked about Rey as much as he talked about Kylo. So did Daisy. Didn't she say that Rey cannot understand how could Kylo kill his father? That's no different from Finn being talked about in the same sentence with Rose and vice versa. No slight on Rey whatsoever, it's just that some people turn a blind eye when she's connected with Luke but raise a stink when she's connected with Kylo.

And Rey Skywalker is the best way to get Rey sidelined and make Luke the big bad*** hero who needs Rey to help him get his groove back.
Its been 84 years and still people are pushing for that theory.
Rey and Kylo being two halves of a whole is all about Rey needed to integrate with the shadow in order to complete her heroine's journey....but naaaaah thats sexist

@soulluos

I understand your concerns but to be fair, Rian hasn't talked about Kylo at all until the EW article. And the times he's talked about Kylo, he's bringing up Rey - not the other way around. I'm more concerned about Luke and him overshadowing Rey's journey but like what others said, LF seem happy with what Rian has done and they're obviously not afraid to interject when they think the director's vision doesn't align with theirs. Wasn't the orginial screewriter for TFA fired because he focused too much on the OT characters? I think someone brought it up on here. Why would they go as far as firing a guy for that but then accepting it in their director/writer for TLJ? I think they use Luke and Rey's dynamic as a safety blanket. People are hyped for more Luke and what happened to him and it's easy to talk about it, it's safe. Mark himself said that it's no longer his story, that he's not the focus. I'm just hoping it abates your concerns a bit, I do get it.

@soulluos

It's not a one sentence and he cannot answer questions he isn't asked. I'm sorry to say but all magazines seem to obsess over Luke so they ask about him and get a handful of quotes. So on the scale of who gets talked about way more than anyone else, it's Luke. Not Rey, not Kylo, not all characters combined but Luke. Luke and obligatory Carrie/Leia tributes.

There's no slighting Rey just media's interest in Luke puts him at the forefront of director's quotes.

Vanity Fair, EW, Empire and the recent NY interview, does Rian directly talk about Rey? Never. And if he does, he changes the subject to Luke or Kylo. This is supposed to be Rey's story, why not talk about her a little bit?
@soulluos

But he talks about Rey,  it's just that he talks about Rey in the same sentences with Kylo or Luke. But he actually talked about Rey as much as he talked about Kylo. So did Daisy. Didn't she say that Rey cannot understand how could Kylo kill his father? That's no different from Finn being talked about in the same sentence with Rose and vice versa. No slight on Rey whatsoever, it's just that some people turn a blind eye when she's connected with Luke but raise a stink when she's connected with Kylo.
@vaderito

Yeah, he talks about Rey, in one sentence. And of course Daisy is going to talk about her own character.
@soulluos

To be fair there was a whole EW article dedicated to Rey's background and what that might mean for her going forward where Rian, Mark and Daisy all talk about Rey.

Also, Luke seems to be the focus this time around because the fans want it that way and the magazines cater to that need.

Guys, please stop quoting the lifted post from another forum.  I've probably edited 20 posts now in an attempt to remove it from our forum.


Thanks for your help.
