Rey & Kylo Ren's Relationship...

That is true. I love that there is a whole new group of female Star Wars fans. Also, a lot of the female fans, either on reddit, podcasts or Tumblr, also tend to have some really great analyses on the movies and characters.

I agree, but I believe that it is important to make certain things that you are a fan of appealing to some audiences to understand why you love it. When I first discovered “Reylo” about a month after I saw The Force Awakens, I didn’t think it would happen and dismissed it as typical fangirl shipping. It wasn’t until a year later (before The Last Jedi came out) that I saw Vincent Vendetta’s Reylo theory video (the video I posted earlier on this thread). I saw his Rey Kenobi theory, and I was surprised with the amount of detail and research put into it. He mentioned that he would be making a Reylo theory video, which got me interested based off how good I thought his Rey Kenobi video was. Once I saw his Reylo video, I was surprised, shocked, yet also won over and liked the possibility that this could be where the story could go. I left all expectations at the door when I saw The Last Jedi, and by the time when the two touched each others’ hands, I was shocked that Lucasfilm was indeed heading in this direction. I thought it was done so well that I eventually became a fan of this “Reylo” story. Unfortunately, I think fangirls, in some way, should understand that if you want to try to convince and win fans over to believing Reylo will happen, then I think creating fan art such as both characters wearing the slave Leia costume will not help. I just hope that this whole “Reylo” thing will be viewed with interest and potential to the Star Wars story, rather than an Internet shipping meme.

John Boyega wrapped as well today…

https://twitter.com/JohnBoyega/status/1096502278155108357 - ‘That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. JJ thank you for making my dreams come true.’

Along with the same picture JJ posted earlier.
 

John Boyega apparently got more positive responses to his tweet than J.J. Abrams did from people.

Maybe it feels a little asexual for guys, but I know plenty of girls who are getting a lot out of Rey and Kylo Ren! Haha.

Most of those fangirls who love “Reylo” apparently were not huge fans of the original trilogy prior to viewing The Force Awakens for the first time. Not being biased or anything, but it does say something about why many fans are turned off from a Kylo Ren and Rey romance in the sequel trilogy.

Wish there was a way to do a poll on this site.

Do we think that’s:
A. Jakku
B. Tatooine
C. Jedha
D. Some new desert planet

Most likely it’s Jakku, but it could possibly be Tatooine. I don’t know how Tatooine could make its way into the sequel trilogy, though. What country was this wrap up picture taken? Tatooine was shot in Tunisia, Jakku was filmed in Abu Dhabi.

Jordan, which is why one of the options is Jedha.

Were the scenes on Jedha in Rogue One shot in Jordan?

Yes, in Wadi Rum, which I believe is the same place IX shot.

It would probably make since to go to Jedha. It’s a planet that is known for its history with the Jedi, and Rey is possibly going there to learn more about their history, or something. It seems like the final scene that was filmed involved something between Rey, Finn, and Poe. Is it possible that reshoots have been scheduled?

I don’t know exactly how they will portray Ben’s redemption, but I definitely see it happening, and I think Rey will play a part of it. I think it will be romantic love that puts the galaxy back together.

It’s a theory I’ve heard often (even literally my mom said this was her theory after she saw TLJ) and while I don’t have anything against it, personally I’d be surprised if it happens in an explicit “Rey and Ben are a romantic pair and will live happily ever after” way.

I doubt it will happen. Other than that scene where Rey and Kylo touch hands, the rest of the sequel trilogy seems weirdly asexual to me, at least in the traditional sense. Like it’s something that purposely being tiptoed around.

Rose kissing Finn was asexual?

Rey &amp; Kylo Ren's Relationship...
Time

RogueLeader said:

Yeah, arguably one of the biggest themes of the entire saga is redemption. And I think with redemption also comes to question of forgiveness.

Both Darth Vader and Kylo Ren have done terrible things, but I think a big part of Vader’s atonement was his son forgiving him for what he did. Leia struggled with ever being able to forgive her father for what he did, and now she is ironically having to come to terms with that in the form of her own son.

I think an optimistic theme of these films is that it should never be too late for someone to do the right thing. To turn back. Obviously the question of forgiveness has been debated for ages by politicians, philosophers and religious leaders. But I think for Star Wars, it definitely does take the route of even the most evil people are capable of being forgiven for their sins.

And regardless of your own opinions regarding forgiveness, we have to acknowledge that the evil acts committed by those who are later redeemed in these films are sort of exagerrated for drama. Darth Vader murdered countless people, even children, but this is a fairy tale, so we shouldn’t equate his atonement to that of a mass murderer in real life. These horrible acts within the story are meant to be analogous to the common mistakes people make in everyday lives.

I don’t know exactly how they will portray Ben’s redemption, but I definitely see it happening, and I think Rey will play a part of it. It was romantic love in the prequels that tore the galaxy apart. And I think it will be romantic love that puts the galaxy back together.

I’m not that against the idea. I just don’t think it’s marketable to put the main hero in a relationship with the villain that killed Han Solo and was the primary antagonist of the previous 2 films. It’s not impossible, but there has to be a good reason to go in that direction, and it would piss off a lot of people.

Luke still forgave his father for the past twenty years of disaster and chaos he committed. Even Padmé forgave her husband for what he had done before she died. I believe that Ben regrets killing his father. The audience is supposed to view him in the same way Rey does. Feel more sympathy with him and hope that he will return from the Dark Side.

Zachary VIII said:

A Reylo type relationship required Kylo to be less evil in TFA and for Rey to join Kylo in TLJ. It’s infeasible to squeeze it into IX at this point with how the previous 2 films have been.

It can still be included. The Force Awakens gave a subtle beginning, and The Last Jedi was much more clear in the representation of their relationship. It’s actually quite impressive how Lucasfilm was able to do so much with their relationship with such little time in Episode VIII. Plus, the film left off with an open ending as to whether Ben will remain on the Dark Side, or return to the Light.

Looney Tunes: Back in Action - A.C.M.E. Edition (Released)
Time

Looney Tunes: Back in Action is a film that fans of Looney Tunes felt a bit mixed on. It was a box office bomb and Warner Bros had made production difficult for Joe Dante and the rest of the crew. This is an edit made by me in an effort to help the film improve in terms of comedy, and to be be both an homage and satire of what made Looney Tunes so memorable, iconic and funny. Sources from other Looney Tunes properties were also used at various points in this edit.

Spider-Man 3: Symbiote Edition (V3 WIP) (VFX NEEDED)
Time

This project fixes Spider-Man 3 into a more focused film that closes out Sam Raimi’s trilogy, while continuing the storylines that left off from its predecessors.

While I don’t dislike Spider-Man 3, it certainly is not all that great and is a real mess in terms of its story and plot. It feels too unfocused and there are too many subplots that are either unnecessary, or gets in the way.

Sandman is completely removed, as his character doesn’t serve a purpose in this film, and the purpose he did serve retcons the first film in being Ben Parker’s killer. Peter’s nightmare as the symbiote attaches itself to him is now focused on his fear of losing MJ and Harry still following in his father’s footsteps.

Harry’s memory loss has been slightly altered to the point where he doesn’t remember his fight with Peter at night, yet still knows about his friend being Spider-Man and the outcome of his father. His feelings towards Peter start to brighten in a sense where he decides to trust him on his word, only for the spirit of the Goblin to motivate him again.
This alone adds conflict in Harry’s character, mirroring Peter’s in the film. Peter still thinks he doesn’t know anything regarding Spider-Man and the Green Goblin.

Eddie Brock and Gwen Stacy are no longer a couple, as Eddie instead tries to hit on her, only for her to be stolen from Peter later on. The majority of humor involving Emo Peter have been removed to come across as being serious.

You can send me a private message to receive the link to this edit.

I am currently planning on updating this project to V3, however I need help in VFX for the shot of Venom grabbing Peter, by adding MJ in the background to retain continuity since Sandman is gone. Also, if it’s double, maybe someone talented with deepfakes could fix some of the digital close-up shots of CG doubles of the actors like Tobey Maguire.

Here is a video by the now defunct YouTuber, Vincent Vendetta. He has posted Star Wars theory videos. This is a truncated version that I edited down from his Reylo theory videos that he posted back in 2017, before The Last Jedi came out. Check it out, it’s worth it.

Apparently he ditches it halfway through.

There’s no way Ben would go back to wearing a mask. The way he destroyed it in The Last Jedi perfectly shows how he is ditching the Darth Vader impersonator he’s been acting like and becoming his own force.

I also think it’s interesting that Lando is wearing the same yellow shirt he wore in Solo.

I don’t see anything wrong with someone disliking the Sequels, or any of the Star Wars films, as long as they’re respectful about it. These disagreements cause a lot of good debates and can inspire people to try to create fixes for perceived problems. There are plenty of people here that like the Prequels, and those that don’t. There’s no reason why it should be any different for the Disney films.

I totally agree with you. It all comes down to approach, behavior, and attitude. We all have our likes and dislikes.

Does anyone thinks that Episode IX could bring the fan base back together, or will it still just make many mad? It makes me annoyed how critical and harsh people can be.

It will be impossible for it not to make a significant portion of the fan base mad. Which portion? We will have to wait and see.

It’s almost as if the prequels cemented a good chunk of the fan base into a negative hateful state ever since. It’s best to be known for what you love, not for what you hate. Being known for what you hate paints yourself in a unappealing way that turn others off from your thoughts and opinions. The point is, always stay positive and hopeful for good things to come in the near future.
