I feel like Rey is a character foil to Anakin and Ben is a foil to Luke.
With Rey and Anakin:
They are both born in barren desert with no future until a set of extremely unlikely circumstances gives them an opportunity to not be starving-work-til-they-die or be a-slave-til-they-die. However the foil occurs with how the opportunity affects their ability to USE their newfound power. No one told Rey she couldn't protect Finn and while Luke criticizes her choice to go to Ben he doesn't stop her. Anakin, however, can't go back to his mom (but he *could* you object NO not only his opportunity to be more i.e. become master is threatened he's told by every mentor he can't be a JEDI if he lets his emotions determine his actions). This contrast highlights the difference between support vs. assimilation, and how environment affects our ability to become who we want to be. The assimilative nature of the Jedi, denies validation to Anakin's experiences as a slave (and completely justified skepticism of the government since he was born, I repeat, A SLAVE) and how that would reasonably affect his decisions. Palpatine sees Anakin's need for validation and he manipulates this need to groom him into an abusive relationship to become vader.
With Ben and Luke:
They are both children of legacy with extreme potential for power. The difference? Family and a secure sense of belonging. The quote that stands out to me is when Uncle Owen says "he has too much of his father in him". Uncle Owen knows the danger of Darth Vader but Luke is NEVER denied support or a home. However Ben is denied support, he wakes up to Luke holding a DRAWN lightsaber over his SLEEPING body. Unlike Uncle Owen, Luke Skywalker gave up on Ben, only for a moment that he immediately regrets, but one moment is one too many. In that moment Ben loses any security (that's already being challenged by intrusive thoughts) that he has support or a place to belong. That threat his life, by Luke f-ing Skywalker no less, makes Ben perceive his belonging in the Republic (if any) is conditional, and that insecurity is what Snoke manipulates to groom Ben into an abusive relationship to become Kylo.
I think this makes sense? Thoughts? Critisms? I wanna know what people think, but when I google I don't see any conversations about this. Anyway, this contrast really comes through in TLJ and I think Rey and Bens characterization not only adds to the themes of the OT and PT but develops complex nuances that enrich the lore and give a sense of future to the SW universe.

Conversation
Yes, mother.
Leia: Never underestimate a droid. *walks away*
Rey: Yes, mother.
Leia: *turns to Rey* What did you say?
Rey: I mean... uh... uh... yes, master.
Leia: You're a terrible liar, daughter... I mean... padawan, apprentice, Rey.
Luke: *comes from Force heaven* Just adopt her already.
Rey and Leia: ...
Luke: I'll bring the papers.

They didn’t have to be star-crossed!!! They weren’t Anakin and Padme or Romeo and Juliet! Ben and Rey deserved a happy ending!

When your name is Ray it’s incredibly fun to watch the sequel trilogy and respond to characters when they say Rey because here I am every time a character yells my name like:

Hi! Just wanted to announce that, in the year of our Lord 2021, I am still bitterly disappointed over how the sequel trilogy ended and how Ben Solo’s arc was handled.

My friends were trying to get me interested in some new Star Wars content lately, and I just can’t anymore. They all agree the ST ended poorly, but then say, “But this show is going to be different...” I mean, I get it. Who I am to squash someone’s enthusiasm for something? However, I just don’t think I’m interested in Star Wars with the way they ended things, and I’m incredibly salty that a billion dollar conglomerate like Disney could leave things like that. 
Right now, TROS is the ending of the story. It’s so depressing & Disney saying Ben Solo is now at peace disturbs me. It’s not like Darth Vader, who had some good times before being manipulated into the darkside, and was a much older man. Ben Solo was canon targeted from childhood, never made peace with his family & died at 30 years old. It’s absolutely heartbreaking. It makes the original trilogy tragic because Han & Leia’s only child, the last Skywalker, was essentially targeted by the same dude Luke/Vader killed. This means Luke a) didn’t bring balance to the force, and b) Palpatine sort of... won? And I’m so sick of the argument that Rey was saved from the darkside because she turned on her lineage. She found out Palpatine was her relative in the third movie. She was never a legitimate flight risk for going dark, especially in comparison to someone like Luke who battled those feelings for 3 films. Also, why would the Skywalker family care more about saving Rey then their own son/nephew? It’s story decisions like this that make me very hesitant to trust Disney again. I get that they wanted to branch out from the Skywalker family, but that didn’t mean destroying their family... if Ben Solo was stained with Darth Vader’s legacy, and the disgrace of Anakin Skywalker, why is Rey blessed with that mantle? Why is Rey allowed to shed her darkside heritage so easily?! There’s no thoughtful or thought-provoking answers to these questions, and that’s what Star Wars should be. It dabbles with right vs wrong, light vs dark. A balance in both.
Tumblr media
Full disclosure, I will be finishing the Mandalorian series because I started it before TROS came out. I also want to see the Obi-Wan series because I grew up watching the prequels. I’m just not sure if I’m interested in more Star Wars content if DLF is only capable of telling stories between the PT & OG.
