Speculation: Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Entertainment Weekly brought to the internet a few exclusive photos from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Luckily for everyone, these photos include a little information regarding the movie. Although it doesn't detail what WILL happen but it gives us enough dots to connect and get a BIGGER picture.
It’s a lonely existence scrounging for sustenance on a junkyard planet. Rey was ditched on Jakku by her family when she was a child and has no idea why — or why they never returned. “She’s been alone for a long time,” Ridley says. "When something occurs when you’re 5, you know what went on but you don’t understand the reasoning. She's hopeful for what lies ahead, whether that involves the past or not." So why hasn’t abandonment made her bitter, angry, and… prone to the Dark Side? “Hope makes people good, a lot of the time,” Ridley says. “You hope for a brighter future, and resentment is outweighed.”
This basically spells out that she is most likely an abandoned Skywalker kid. Something occurred when she was a kid and never understood the reasoning? Jedi battle? Hopeful trait? Luke.
Skywalker + Jedi Battle + Luke = Luke had to abandon her as a child after the death of her mother and has been spending the time since in exile.
Another idea is that she could be Leia's daughter? And was forced to abandon her at a young age.
"Rey, Finn, and Kylo, they all start off in a place where they have been led to feel like they’re wanting," says Daisy Ridley. In this sequence, first seen in the Oct. 19 trailer, she is spelunking through the heart of a long-dead Star Destroyer. "She’s never sat around a table and had a meal with someone else. She works to feed herself, and she goes to sleep, and she gets up again. It is a sad life," Ridley adds. "The film, for Rey, is a journey of finding out that no one is no one."
Rey, force sensitive. Finn? doubt so.
Some fans speculate that Rey's weapon of choice looks suspiciously like the staff lightsaber of Darth Plagueis, the Sith lord who served as master of Emperor Palpatine back in his Darth Sidious apprenticeship. Daisy Ridley has heard that guesswork, too. "I mean everyone is praying that it’s Darth Plagueis’s staff. But... it’s just a staff," Ridley says. "She’s a young woman in a galaxy by herself. It’s not primarily a weapon, it’s useful as well. It does all sorts of things roamin’ around Jakku. She uses it to defend herself. That’s really as far as it goes, unfortunately." Asked if it's electrified, like a cattle prod, and the actress tries — and fails — to stifle a laugh. "Cattle prod! No, she doesn’t have a charger!" she says. "It’s just a plain old staff!” (If it does turn out to have lightsaber capabilities, we'll be pleasantly surprised and forgive her for maintaining secrecy.)
We speculated that it could've been a staff lightsaber as well but well... it is just a staff.
Finn is wearing Dameron's jacket.
Poe Dameron ended up in the clutches of The First Order, and here he appears to be pretty roughed up. Whether he sustained these bloody injuries during his capture or they're the result of Kylo Ren's interrogation is still unclear. What this image reveals is that Dameron and Finn do meet before Boyega's character goes AWOL. All this does is raise more questions about why Finn ends up wearing Poe's clothes on Jakku — and how the X-Wing pilot goes from handcuffed prisoner to his return to the Resistance base.
I'm guessing that right here is when Finn meets Dameron for the first time and they exchange clothes. This makes it possible for Dameron to escape and Finn to RUN THE FRAK AWAY... sorta.. maybe but then Finn crash lands in his Storm Trooper get-up later on so we're guessing that they DO exchange clothes but Finn would obviously have a spare Trooper uniform around anyway.
We still don't know the exact nature of their relationship, but here we see the ex-stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) having a longer encounter with X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac.) What we now know for sure? These two have met before, and it was under particularly harsh circumstances.
So they met up in space, came back to the rebel base and went, "Hey Bro! Thanks for changing clothes with me and saving my ass. Wasn't awkward at all when we were just standing around naked for a bit."
Oh and BB-8 will be following Finn around alot more. (BB-8 is a boy by the way)
First Order soldiers take fire as they rush into battle from the gangplank of a troop carrier. Although Finn is no longer among them, Boyega says soldiers raised from childhood to serve this remnant of the scattered Imperial forces are fed propaganda about the heroes of the Rebellion. Unlike Rey, he has learned a lot about Luke Skywalker — but he has been taught he was a villain who destroyed the benevolent Empire.
Many have been conscripted and indoctrinated with hate and fear of what the Rebellion stood for. Why risk their lives for this cause? They've been taught that's all they're good for.
This basically means that Finn was taken in as a child and has lived as part of the First Order for all his life. Hearing stories of the Fabled Luke Skywalker the Trooper Slayer.
Finn would meet Dameron along the way and begin to question why he is going around killing ewoks. Not knowing that humans are an ewok's main dish of choice.
After meeting Dameron, Finn finds out that the ship is under attack and then tries to flee but gets shot and crash lands. Meets Rey and BB-8. Flees the First Order ships. Finds the Millennium Falcon. Bumps into Han and Chewie. Goes on a magical Jedi finding quest. MEETS KYLO. Gets his hand chopped off. Becomes a Jedi.
Knights of Ren. All we know is that they give Kylo his new name after joining their order. Who they are and what they want will be a mystery answered by the movie, but coming later this week on EW, we'll offer a little insight into Kylo's other Dark Side associates: Supreme Leader Snoke (played by Andy Serkis) and General Hux (played by Domhnall Gleeson.)
Knights of Ren = Sith Sect
Force sensitive people who are trained to kill. Not necessarily trained to use the force.
Well, that is all! We'll post more and connect the dots as soon as we get them.
