@Kylo Men

Who is main protagonist or not is decided by perception and not necessarily what's meant. For example, while Elizabeth Swann is meant to be the main protagonist in the first POTC, audience perception is that Captain Jack Sparrow is. Never mind that she is realistically and by intention the main lead, people feel that he is and then sequels catered to that idea.

Finn is deuterologist aka secondary protagonist to Rey's protagonist (or main protagonist). The phrase main protagonist is also used for multiple protagonists to distinguish them from supporting characters. So it's tricky. But there's no doubt that Rey is above everyone.

That said, Rian's quote about why Rey and Kylo inspired him wasn't about their status as protagonists but about something entirely different. How some people came to a conclusion that Rian was slighting one character is a big question mark. They sure made Finn sound like a third wheel in that twitter exchange, though.

Basically, they lost because they lost their sith over a simple statement that seemingly goes against their headcanons and beliefs and all possibilities of a rational discussion went down the drain with them. 

2kids in a playground

kid 1: "Your mama is fat"

kid 2 wouldve lost if they went on a mama defensive rampage. Kid 2 would win if they come up with a mama redeeming clap back.

@ISeeAnIsland wrote:Another NYT quote that I haven't seen discussed much yet here:

Nothing like that. But it’s the second film in a trilogy. The first film got these characters here. This second movie has to dig into and challenge these characters. I wanted this to be a satisfying experience unto itself. I didn’t want it to end with a dot, dot, dot, question mark.

Now, that sounds like we're not getting too cliffhanger-ish of an ending. We'll see, of course.
@ISeeAnIsland

Yes, I really hope this is true, but then we might have different ideas of what a dot dot dot question mark is. For me it would be question mark on any of the characters being alive and question mark on main characters' motivations. Actually thinking about it, the second one is more important to me. Enigmatic Rey as mentioned in the introduction by the journalist will hopefully not be a walking enigma anymore. And if redemption is in the cards for Kylo, a tangible sign that he is on this path.

I have to laugh reading every RJ interview lately. He really insists on saying he was free to take the story wherever he wanted, no specific plotlines to respect. Sometimes I am thinking that he knows about PlotGate and trolls. Also directors of big franchises usually love to say how free they were so maybe it's part of their contract to cater to a cool image of the producing company Smile

But after reading this article, I was thinking how that full freedom in creating the story could work. It's true that the best ideation workshops are the ones where you leave all the restrictions at the door and just go wild with ideas. Then you can go back to restrict the ideas based on the reality of your situation and sometimes also laws of physics Razz Maybe that was the process. So one part of me can now even believe in the blank white board. And not care about the potential flip side of it, but more about the positively crazy stuff that might have come out of this freedom. Maybe because I love ideation workshops and free brainstorming and think they can produce the best ideas. Lucky LF people. I do not attend or facilitate workshops anymore, but it's ok because they've become very restricted and boring.

Funny what he says about there being fewer paths possible than you think in explaining why Luke is on the island. I am intrigued now...

I so freakin dig his new look. Such a Prince. H-beating

I hope that they don't dwell much on his piloting skills. It's too generic considering how many characters can fly. It's nice to know but focus on what defines him and makes him unique which is this. Prince, Knight, One Half of the Light and the Dark.

Just saw someone elsewhere point out that Rey has what looks like Luke's compass behind her in this coloring book: http://mummiesandlightsabers.tumblr.com/post/165056377044/i-bought-this-tlj-colouring-book-today-and-took

They mentioned that Kylo has a different version behind him... what if Luke's compass leads him to see that the two of them together are the 'balance'?

@kroi Great catch! To compare, this is the compass (top):



so it's the same thing. But assuming both Rey and Kylo have the compass behind them, it would be two sides of the compass cause they look different.

It's probably nothing significant, just a cool image to color, but you never know.

It points to the thing you want most in the world - Captain Jack Sparrow

Yeah, the thing is none of the other characters have the compass design in the coloring book... not even Luke!

I cant help but think that if Ben Solo was a good pilot, then Han's spending time teaching other kids to fly - as mentioned in Bloodline - must have really hurt Ben.
I wonder if for all his talk that Han would have 'disappointed' Rey as a father, what he really felt was that he'd disappointed Han. Sad

@motherofpearl1

I understand flying as an emotional significance but I just don't think it should be too much of an emphasis beyond reminiscence/remorse/a cool action scene. IMO, characters are unique when their singular skill is well defined and piloting is generic in a movie full of pilots and it already is Poe's singular skill so it shouldn't be Kylo's. Likewise, lightsabers and the Force become generic among too many characters who have them (PT), so one has to look for other singular skills to make characters more unique.

Not sure where to post this, but I've been on vacation for the last two weeks with limited internet access. Can someone catch me up on what's happened. Last I'd heard Trevorrow had been kicked to the curb. What juicy news have I missed?

@Tex

These past two weeks have literally been amazing.

JJ Abrams is now confirmed to be writing and directing IX.
Rian made a series of tweets spanning over several days that point specifically to Kylo's redemption. No ifs ands and or buts.
Two days ago someone asked him what song he would use to describe Kylo and Rey. It's a John Lennon song that's basically about seeing the pain and tradegy one hides behind a facade. I posted it in the Reylo Playlist if you want to look. The song's title escapes me at the moment but that made me scream to high heaven.

Reviewing the tweets thread is probably going to give you the best recap. I'd start at least 10 pages back as we got some really good ones.

Right? I'm still amazed people think they're related. From a writer's perspective, that would be very lazy. I'm still pretty sure she's a Kenobi. But I know they're not related. It's just too taboo and obvious. Considering how the whole Luke/Leia thing went down, if they were related, they'd have avoided any sexual tension between them like the plague. If I remember right, wasn't Daisy's initial audition the interrogation scene? That's pretty much a chemistry read right there. I wonder why... Wink

@Tex - until proven otherwise, I'm going with the argument that some of it was her idea because pre-paternity reveal, she joked to Rolling Stone magazine that if there was going to be a sex scene, it should be Vader and Leia where he'd do "awful, kinky things to her that she'd love and afterwards they'd be in bed with her asleep and him smoking a cigarette." And around the time she signed on for TFA, before it was announced, she was on Craig Ferguson's old show joking with him about Star Wars porn. With a lot of heavy breathing and "when you feel the Force, you really feel it. You also need lubricant." Like tell me she wasn't cracking jokes about that during production, writing, and the screening she did with the two leads, one of whom plays her son.

Glad to see your okay, I've been getting some interesting reports from relatives there about the aftermath.
