I don't watch to reach, but I do feel like this was an indirect reference to the Reylo debate. It cannot come at a better time, to be honest.
@thescavenger
I agree. To go along with this, he also liked a couple tweets about not understanding why people harass and "anti" ships. Clearly a reference to predominantly Reylo.



I'm somebody who's been in this from the beginning for the canon story alone. I don't really get "shipper" culture or things like fanfiction because appreciating and analyzing the real story and characters is all that interests me, but good gosh, I would never waste my time going around telling other people what they can and can't do or like. Like wth? Idgaf what other people do with their time so long as they aren't trying to hurt or control other people.

@MyOnlyHope Absolutely. I feel like I'm an analyser above all things. In that sense, I do appreciate good well-founded debates in terms of the storytelling, even if it's against the relationship.

And as much as shipping culture surprises me, they're all in good fun and let people express their creativity. But wow, I didn't realise people actually waste their time hating on something. Who has time for that?

The level of character analysis and understanding has gone up so drastically with TLJ that I'm regaining faith in people's ability to think and open up their minds on a daily basis. This is an excellent exchange. Thank you!

A great exchange. Rey never loses her agency as a woman in her relationship with Kylo and I think that is the only way they can tell this story. The contrast between Reylo and Anidala is so clear and obvious.

@MyOnlyHope @whisperingwillow And it means something coming from Arthur Chu, who's mostly Internet famous for figuring out how to game the scoreboard on Jeopardy (though he'll never beat Matt Jackson for my most favorite contestant ever). He's got pretty rock solid geek creds and is somebody who's taken on the racist/misogynist trolls of Twitter and especially in geek/fandom spaces. So it means a lot reading his thoughts going in this direction (which many of us here are of the same political bent as him and this is the thought process we went through).

@EchoBase
I am highly appreciative of Matt and Pablo's sense of humor concerning Reylo. It's just great to know that LF employees are hanging around cracking jokes about Kylo walking around shirtless waiting for the Force bond to kick in, liking BATB Reylo parody videos full of thirsty Rey and Kylo, and trolling about Kylo's wet glove. They're seeing all this for the hilarious angst-fest it really is. Just ha.

@Kylo Rey - that's a great catch. Because coming from Chu, who's done battle with MRAs and Gamergate types on Twitter (they HATE him), it's not just some fan brushing away an argument because it interferes with what their take/wish list for the story. He's done the work and if he's looking at this film (and he wrote a Think Piece after TFA came out about how it was about angry/disaffected millennials) with those conclusions, it holds a lot of weight.

And for anyone, who's never watched the game show Jeopardy!, this is Arthur Chu, who was a bit of a villain you rooted for by figuring out how to game the system while using the rules of the game


Although my favorite champ will always be the awkward but incredibly enthusiastic Matt Jackson

He might want to take that location stamp off of his Tweets, lest rabid fans start hanging around Corte Madera (posh Marin County town that's next to the infamous San Quentin State Prison) hoping to corner him for more answers.

1. Matt can't comment on reverse Anidala Wink Wink Wink

2. Matt liked a tweet from a girl who describes Reylo as powerful and two equals (he's @missingwords)

3. Rian also saw the Reylo musical and commented "OMG"

@Xylo Ren
A couple other good likes. Smile



No surprise reverse Anidala is one of those "things". I wasn't willing to take a stance on that potential trajectory after TFA (it was always a possibility, I just didn't feel like we had enough information to say for sure), but the overwhelming number of actually meaningful visual and dialogue parallels in TLJ solidified my confidence that yes, that's what they're going with beyond a shadow of a doubt. If we've learned anything from Pablo and Matt over the years, it's that you know when the answer to a question is really a "nope, try again". Both tweeted out enough reassuring anti-Reylated (emphasis on Rey Random) information between VII and VIII for all of us to rest easy. Not to mention all the "we'll sees," "I can't talk about the future" and "go with what you saw in TFA" concerning things like the Force bond, Kylo being the "one who could still come back/ the belonging that lies ahead" and Kylo's sexuality lol. Good times.

It’s so interesting how Matt Martin is liking so many Reylo posts, etc. lately. It totally looks like he’s been “let out of the box,” lol.

Total conjecture here, but since JJ recently turned in his story treatment for Epsiode IX, I wonder if the Story Group is now fully aware of the  direction of the next movie and that’s influencing (even subconsciously) Matt’s interaction and interest in Reylo on Twitter... also he’s such a nice guy, I’d think if Reylo didn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell, he wouldn’t be paying so much attention to it as that inadvertently provides false hope.

Okay, I sound like I’m going waaay out on a limb here, but still...

@Kessel

Actually I think that you make a pretty good argument. If Bob Iger approved the treatment, and if Reylo has garnered a lot of new fans, especially women, they may have made the decision to encourage the interest. I don't know what marketing research says on this subject, but I wouldn't be surprised if a female audience interested in romance responded to different marketing tactics than a fanboy audience concerned with fights and explosions.
