The best part was seeing Luke again as a “Jedi”, and seeing the main protagonist being a girl (albeit an awfully written character).
And it is a shame she wasn’t well written. I liked the way Daisy Ridley portrayed Rey, and in a vacuum I’d argue she’s a good character. But everything about her is so underutilized, that at least in TLJ it felt more like she was there to be an earpiece for Luke and Kylo to vent about their problems than the central protagonist of the trilogy.
Nevermind that the films felt so disjointed that it wasn’t clear if she even had a character arc to go through.
