@Xylo Ren I think Matt is being super nice and people were being nice to him. As long as you are nice and not rude about things I don't think any of the LF story group is going to be mean to you. Matt seems far more open and nicer to fans than Pablo is (sorry Pablo it is true) and is an all-around kind person. We aren't going to like everything Matt says over the next two years but as long as we are kind I believe he will return it. Plus he seemed to be having fun with everyone last night since everyone was being kind to him.

Yeah, Matt was on fire yesterday. king But I noticed that he didn't confirm that Reylo is canon, he said "Can't talk about EPIX"

Who knows how he or Story Group define "Reylo" confused

Well I mean technically they aren't together so they may just consider it to still be simply a ship by fans.

@special_cases

his response is very positive in my opinion - from the right point of view it's even fantastic. "can't talk about episode IX" as answer if reylo is canon? Between the lines you can read that means it will definitely be canon in IX that's why he can't talk about it Wink

Yeah, I’m sure the story group knows Reylo is ultimately, the romantic aspect of that their dynamic. I assume some form of Reylo will play out in Episode IX as there’s no other dynamic between Rey and Kylo except antagonists who have a connection, and what is the connection? They’re not relatives so what else could it be (especially after what happened in TLJ)? They have not just a Force connection, but an emotional connection. They can’t just ignore what happened between them in TLJ now. It’s too late. There’s no way they’re setting up a cold and uncomplicated scenario of emotionless Lightsider vs. Darksider against a Rebels vs. FO backdrop. That’s not going to be enough to drive Epsiode IX’s plot.

@special_cases
I've seen probably over a hundred story group related Tweets in this thread over the past two years and trust me, these are very positive responses. Matt is a lot less snarky than Pablo but you learn to read certain Tweet styles and senses of humour well. His answers remind me a lot of the support he gave to the Rey Unrelated theory and the Kanan/Hera pairing from Rebels after it was confirmed. Before the confirmation he would just say "I can't talk about future stories". Same goes for anything potentially relating to the Obi-Wan standalone. His vagueness about certain topics ended up indirectly pointing in clear directions.

Matt is always extremely open and honest and would not be showing support like this if these weren't his real opinions or if he didn't find some of these memes/jokes genuinely amusing. He is not a shipper. He's just a story group member who encourages the canon stories LF tells. Reylo happens to be a confirmed part of those canon stories now. You'll never see him Tweet about some crack pairing like Kylux. He has no obligation to respond to anything just as he had no obligation to throw shade at the Rey Skywalker theory as early as winter 2016. The famous "the Skywalker quota is filled by Kylo" and "Vader as Luke's dad would have been looked upon as a crack theory back in the day too" (comparing Reylo to dad Vader) Tweets came from him and was right on the money.

Basically these Tweets are incredibly encouraging because of collections of similar Martin Tweets that were all confirmed with TLJ's release. I can't fully explain why because you really had to see it for yourself. And maybe you did, I don't really know. Razz

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
Haha I agree. At this point, I've accepted that a lot of things really are orchestrated/intentional. Even dumb stuff like Rian's slurry of seemingly random red string (of fate) tweets turned out to be what we all thought. There's been a little shift since the SW Twitter's now infamous ship joke. It's not a big deal (just little acknowledgements of what's all, duh, in the story), and we won't hear extensive confirmations or explanations, but small things, sure. It's out there now.

I don't think your reaching at all. I actually had this same thought the other day. There's two things that make me think this:

1) According to the Art of TFA book, when JJ pitched the most recent version of the TFA treatment in December 2013, major studio head figures, KK, John Williams and even visualists were all present. I imagine the LF Story Group must have been too. This leads me to think that they were also present at JJ's pitch to Bob Iger for IX. Production starts in June so there's not a lot of turn around time. These boardroom meetings tend to have a lot of people as well. Even if they weren't there, it's been a few weeks now and it's possible they were notified in that time.

2) Episode IX has a code name (Black Diamond). In the Last Jedi secrets video, it was revealed that the story group came up with the Space Bear code name after discussing with Rian how Luke had taken himself into hiding from the wider galaxy. They clearly knew the plot of TLJ at that point. They might know IX too as JJ may have discussed it with them and may have helped come up with a code name.

@SoloSideCousin Box Office Mojo did an audience breakdown for opening night of TLJ. There was a ten percent jump of women going to see it versus TFA. More women also showed up in the weeks that followed. The audience is getting younger too: 37% of those who turned out opening night was 25 years old or younger. With Reylo being the most universally praised aspect (that even haters agree on), it doesn't take rocket science to see what is attracting the female portion of the GA. Word of mouth spreads quickly in this day and age (not to mention reviews). Disney's research/marketing team would definitely be looking to capitalise on this.

I remember well when Matt said he didn't "get shipping". He's not a shipper and he's also not a troll. I think he, personally, is not even a fan of Reylo as a romance. I think it's incredibly positive that he is liking Reylo tweets and it shows that our reading of the movie was correct.

An interesting observation I've made, is that the original favourite ship post with ' but not Rey and Kylo', generated at this moment in time 18k likes! Most of the likes on Star Wars Twitter posts average  around the 2-4 k with normally under 100 comments. The recent exception is the Maths pencil  post with the Dark Vadar theme. That had 19k likes, 86 comments and 4.1k retweets. The original favourite ship post had 2.1k comments ( comments of course we're invited) and 4.6k retweets.

It will be interesting if this new post generates as much interest. And it's primarily to do with Reylo! The Star Wars guys who oversee the Twitter account must have statically seen the benefit of teasing Reylo and the huge difference in traffic it made.
I only views posts as far back as the end of December, so I don't know if they've had such a huge response before, but the stats really jump up on the favourite ship post. I'm not really all that familiar with how Twitter works, i don't tweet, I really only had a recent re interest because of Emo Kylo Ren ..lol

I just checked this, Kylo/Rey tease tweet had 18k likes and 2k comments, and this new one without them only has 4k likes and 681 comments. And it's been up for 16 hours so I don't see much more traffic coming in.

Reylo creates a lot of buzz indeed! Wink

So many questions to Matt Martin. And quite a few trying to push him to confirm Reylo for IX. Please let it be. We don’t want the Story Group to get annoyed now. It’s all been peaceful since TLJ.







That one was liked by him. Funny one.

Never heard of that singer, but if it's a fullblown dance move, that's pretty impressive. They're in the pop culture consciousness now and in a really good way.

Also the Empire podcast comments comparing Luke and Ben/Kylo with their stances about the past and legacy - that's ripe for conflict between Kylo and Hux in IX. Because the former wasn't really interested in Imperial history or the First Order, just about latching on to his Vader lineage. And his offer to Rey was straight up burning everything down to start all over. Just that he's so insecure, he'll put himself at the top predicated on family lineage and try to appeal to her as she can be important by being part of his story. Which is what she rejects. But anyways, we know that Hux is all about restoring the Empire and the birthright he feels was denied to him (by Ben's mommy and daddy, no less!). He's the one who wants to bring back the Past and we know that Kylo is more vague about it because he's Mr Personal Interests and only sees the FO in service of his own needs. So there's some conflict right there on top of the truth of what actually happened with Snoke and "the gurrrrrl."
