All I can think when they say things like that is that it MUST be something to do with Luke's portrayal. It's the only thing at this point that would be super divisive to old fans, and Mark Hamill and other things have hinted at it too. Something's going down with Luke that's going to split opinions big time.

I'm loving these developments. TFA does have a lot of flaws but it offers so many interesting possibilities. I follow J.J. and his work for years and I admire his ability to bring out the best in the actors. So yes, I'm glad he's finishing what he started with the young cast.

I can see both of these being divisive for certain old school fans, but not something JJ would disagree with (based on TFA/commentary/interviews).

It's probably a multitude of things. Finn and Rey having little interaction, the likelihood of Luke no longer being the golden child, let alone the main hero, Finn falling for Rose, and last but not least, Kylo not being an irredeemable monster and *gasp*, falling for Rey.

I get giddy when I see the fanboys panties all tied up in knots. I can't wait!!!

As for the December pushback, I'm not shocked at all. While the wait sucks, I'd rather have a quality movie, and I'm glad they're taking their time.

I think so too. It doesn't even have to be something drastic like Luke being evil; any less-than-flattering portrayal is going to upset some hardcore fans.

I'm actually quite amazed about what gets people ruled up, especially among the fanboy contingent. You're right, it doesn't even have to be Dark!Luke. All it has to be is Luke no longer being the main Jedi hero that saves everyone, and they'll lose their sith.

Why should the person happy with JJ coming back to direct when Luke had no screen time at all in VII? I bet it's about Rey.

@Moonjump05

I agree. It all depends on the person who talked to them. Maybe Rian's film was too complicated in this person's opinion. Maybe Kylo is too sympathetic. Maybe Rey ends up liking Kylo too much. Maybe Rey flirts with darkness too much. Maybe Luke ain't perfect. (Even though JJ didn't do anything with Luke, people might tell themselves JJ would be better without any logical support at all because Rian makes Luke too antagonistic for their taste and JJ never did something like that). Maybe there aren't enough space battles. Maybe they don't like Finn being ambivalent about the Resistance. Maybe Kylo's awesome TIE blows up too fast. Or maybe the MF gets trashed. There are a million possibilities here.

Here are my thoughts about why episode 8 might cause division with certain fans:

1. Rey is not Luke's child
2. Luke is messed up, disturbed, corrupeted...not the shinning happy hero from the OT
3. Kylo will be redeemed, because.....FU, we want a new vadar.
4. Jedi/Sith/traditional force user is more murky.
5. Finn and Rey will not be the couple of the trilogy.
6. Rey and Kylo will become allies.

Did I forget something?

There's no way JJ disagrees with Rian version. KK calls the shots so if TLJ is good for her than it's good for everyone else. Besides, JJ probably had enough input anyway, so that confirms agreement.

I'll take number six a step further. Blatant UST between the villain and the heroine. It doesn't even need to be a kiss. Romantic attraction can encompass more than just that.

It's probably one or more of Dark!Luke, Dark!Rey, or Reylo. Plus Lighter!Kylo.

Given Mark Hamill's statements about disagreeing about the choices surrounding Luke, it makes sense to start there.

I mean, if Luke starts out cranky, but then sees the light, agrees to train Rey and goes and saves the galaxy, what part of that would Hamill disagree with?

@IoJovi

as if Luke linger on an island somewhere in TFA while the galaxy is in real trouble, isn't a hint enough for them that he is in fact NOT the hero they're hoping for?

I don't think he will be full dark or evil in TLJ but I think it's no longer his responsibility to save the day.
In the trailer he says "It's time for the Jedi to end..." and I agree with him. At least for the Jedi Order we know from the Prequels with all the
stupid rules of "no attachment" no "fear" or "anger" and whatsoever... that's not how a healthy sentient being works. You can't suppress your natural feelings forever without consequences for your mental health.

I know it's not canon anymore, and I hated the character anyway- but maybe some of the EU readers remember Vergere?
She said something I can't forget: "This is the shameful secret of the Jedi: There is no dark side. The Force is one. The Force is everything and everything is the Force. The Force does not take sides. The Force does not even have sides.”

This makes sense to me. The Force is supposed to be an energy field all living beings produce - why should it have "sides"?
My theory is that its easier to manipulate/use this field if you act out of anger/hate/fear but it's also harder to control. And that's why
the Jedi "invented" that rule about the "dark side" and "the light side" - in order to prevent force sensitive beings to lose control and get addicted to the power the could wield.
That would be a great new "reveal" about the force and also open the way for "grey" Jedi... but it's just one theory. Maybe I'm totally wrong Confus

@Night Huntress

This makes a lot of sense.

In a way, the Force then is not really different from a lot of super powers portrayed in all fiction. Emotions will affect your control. I.e., Raven from Teen Titans. Given that she is half demon, she's technically all Dark Side. So she meditates to control her emotions and reign in her power. When she lets lose, she gets all tentacle-y and demon eyed, but when she's calm, she can use her powers for helpful things. As with Star Fire, her happiness lets her fly, while her righteous anger makes her starbolts.

Same goes for Harry Potter, his anger at Bellatrix for killing Sirius allowed him to fully use the Cruciatus curse, because you really gotta 'mean it', whereas before he couldn't because he didn't feel the needed emotion.

The Force as a lore just had always been the Light and Dark to the eyes of most fans. So the idea that it is just one entity might be difficult to accept since in their childhood, the Light is Good while Dark is Bad.

RE: the bolded

This had always been my view of the Force. I mean, if it is part of the natural world, it doesn't make sense that it could have a 'good' and 'evil' side. Nature doesn't work that way. Trees, rocks, rivers, stars, comets, etc., don't have 'good' and 'evil' sides. They just are. They do what they do. Sometimes what they do involves destruction and death, but that's not because they're 'evil'.

Part of my excitement after watching TFA was that the SW movies might finally be moving towards 'the Force is one' viewpoint.
