    My issue with this is, Obi Wan had a bond with Luke. He sacrificed himself for Luke. And with the PT we learn that he was actually watching over him from afar his whole life. This gives those force ghost scenes a lot of oomph.

    But Luke barely met Rey. She was there all of 30 hours. He gave her two out of three lessons on why she shouldn't be a Jedi. And after attacking him, she stormed off the island like a churlish, self destructive child, never to see Luke again. She doesn't even witness his sacrifice on Crait. Call me jaded, but this is not a force ghost reunion I'm excited to see. As for Luke and Kylo, he didn't have much to say to him when he was on Crait talking to his face.
    That was before Yoda chewed him out, before he re-engaged with the universe, etc. I think after we saw what Luke did after Rey left, him manifesting to Ben is a distinct possibility. I can almost see a dynamic like between Luke and Cade in the now-defunct Legacy comics.

    I'm so sorry, but I can't help but think about this...

    I can't listen to the entire vid as I'm at work now, just checked the title. It's on record that JJ wanted TFA to end with Luke levitating massive rocks and floating above the ground while meditating when Rey finds him. Simon Pegg also said that JJ had brief outlines about the sequels and Daisy also said that JJ had specific ideas about Rey's lineage. Mark even said about Colin Trevorrow that they really saw eye-to-eye regarding Luke's role in Ep 9, so my assumption is that Luke's fate changed after Colin was fired. Unless they really agreed on what kinda Force-ghost he would be.
    Colin told Daisy the ending of IX and it had her in tears. He promised fans a "profoundly satisfying answer" to Rey's background. And Mark has also said, in relation to the floating rocks and his Jedi robes, that JJ had a completely different vision for Luke than Rian did. He says it here, at 28:46.

    Me and my friends threw on TFA last night before we went off to see Solo. Watching it felt like I was watching a video of my ex-girlfriend. So painful to watch now after TLJ. RJ really created a cancer for this franchise. So sad.

    Are you sure, because both felt like really horrible fan films. Just because one made a bigger turd sandwich to eat doesn't mean the other one is delicious.

    Ha, I know many people didn't like TFA but I fell in love with it. Well, I fell in love with the new characters, Rey, Finn, Poe. The story was just an obvious rehash of ANH but I really like where JJ was taking us. Oh well.

    Kinda pricey for a 40 page digital download. I bet Bryan will read it and tell us all about it for free.

    I really hate what Rian Johnson did to Star Wars. He is such a smug douchey bastard too. Has a very punchable face.

    Drew McWeeny loved TLJ. I'm not paying to read someone's 40 page thesis of why TLJ was the SW movie we all needed but didn't want.

    What makes this guys opinion , or anyone else’s who ‘ enjoyed ‘ TLJ seemingly more valid or interesting , than those who didn’t !? .

    Is RJ so hard up for recognition now ? He’s already got a reputation that I for one believe he’s deserved after foisting his ‘ take ‘ on SW ...
