Fan Theory That Connects TFA With The Prequels

If you’re steadfastly avoiding any and all spoilers, you might not want to watch but a fan has some really interesting theories on a possible connection between a new character in TFA and the prequels. No, it’s not about Plagueis:

At the very least it’s an interesting coincidence. I won’t post more than that here in the event people are keeping spoiler-free.

    Sounds a little convoluted, though I’d love for some Padme references in TFA. I used to think Kylo was the son of Han and Leia but now I’m putting my money on Luke. Having him be Leia’s son would probably make it feel too close to the EU, with Jacen and Jaina, for Disney’s liking. Any prequel reference is welcome. I mean, if the author of Aftermath, not even gonna say that jerks name, can rag on the PT but still pay homage to them, I can see Abrams doing the same. I’ll take what I can get at this point TBH.

    Sounds logical to me that Ren would be a Skywalker and the way his birth is explained in this video makes a lot of sense.

    This is all wishful thinking. The new film will be a very simple story and have zero prequel references. I am certain of it.

    And sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, as Sigmund Freud might have once stated… I’m thinking that Kylo Ren is really just the result of Abrams and Kasdam brainstorming some cool new monikers. Not that that’s bad, but who knows if that much time and effort was put into one name when they were world-building like crazy in this script and this movie overall.

    I refuse to believe Kylo is a Skywalker/Solo, and if he is, that’s terrible casting. He doesn’t look ANYTHING like any existing character, and even his black hair, unless it’s supposed to be dyed, won’t work at all, if he’s supposed to come from a family of blondes and brunettes.

    Unless Luke somehow got hold of a black-haired and VERY goofy-looking woman, and Kylo looks just like mom. O_o

    It’s just not plausible.
