This view of Rey reminds me of the way Athena is often depicted. Athena was the Goddess of war, courage, and wisdom. It wouldn’t be a stretch to wonder if that isn’t the arc of her character at least as she’s been portrayed so far.

It’s also the first time they’ve shown her in a way that presents her physical beauty. I know these are family friendly films for the most part, so they’ve not really made an issue of how beautiful Ms Ridley is. This shot, however, is almost Greek Goddess-like with a chiton, off of one shoulder, being blown to the side in a way that accentuates her shape. A marked change from the scavenger tough girl we met a few years ago.

And yes, I’m aware I’m reading WAY too much into a one-second shot in a trailer. 😉
