Careful, lot of people are going to think the shirt is unironic. Probably the sort of people who are very loud, very often.

I thought murdering Snoke was an interesting direction to go in. It's as if Darth Vader killed the Emperor just to take over, plus the power dynamic between Ren and Hux and their rivalry could be neat to watch play out.

Also Snoke never felt like a legitimate threat, just a Scary CGI Chair Man.

Snoke was just an old shriveled up fossil that was only a matter of time before he died.

Well, none of them feel like a legitimate threat. Maybe Hux could have, but being used to literally mop the floor pretty much ruled that out. And Ren? Guy's not particular smart, has massive emotion and impulse control issues and Rey beat him already, twice, not to mention he'd be dead if she had been of a mind to kill him. I'd rather Scary Cgi Chair Man over Nazi Clown and Darth Emo, he was able to get Starkiller Base and the Supremacy built, as well as the rest of the FO's fleet, while infiltrating and weakening the New Republic and combating the Resistance. I don't like Snoke, not as a character, not as a villain, but at least he actually accomplished something.

Kylo Ren is just Zuko from Avatar, except he hates his uncle.

Rey is a cross between Katara and Korra. But maybe I'm just saying the first bit because Zutara makes a lot of sense for Star Wars.

If Anakin balances the force then Palpatine can't be dead. After all, Anakin's death would mean there's only one kind of force user and hence necessarily imbalance. Snoke wasn't actually very old, just very shrivelled. Alternatively, Leia is sufficiently force inclined that Snoke was around.

I imagine they'll do a Korra Book Two ending as well. Everyone thinks balance means light side only (analogue, seal off the spirit worlds) but really that's just dumb and instead balance means balance (analogue, open the spirit portals and merge with the physical world). This has to be true because I watched a fan theory video about it and in Star Wars fan theories are canon and what the story is going to be.

Corollary... Rey's parents are nobodies to avoid incest. It's further proof of the commitment to Zutara.

Point I'm not sure about... if we take Book Two of Korra as a literal guide... the force ghosts will cease to exist after balance is achieved. This is will be related to why we haven't seen Anakin's force ghost again.

Plus, midochlorians and religion are both inclined to reproduction. This is by analogy to selfish genes and also how religions like growing bigger. The Jedi are, therefore, the real bad guys of Star Wars.

Finally, chronological order is best order and Solo is best film.
