Tickets To The Rise of Skywalker

Hello All!

It’s been a while since I posted. I’ve just been so off in my own head, doing things, and haven’t had a lot I wanted to talk about here. I have been working on my current story, and continuing to do some querying(not enough, I admit), but I haven’t made a lot of recent progress on anything that I can actually talk about. Sure, the story is coming along, but I don’t want to drop too many details:)

So we got our tickets to The Rise of Skywalker the other day. I am very excited to see this movie, but also a little sad. I don’t want the Star Wars stories to end. Yes, I know we will always have more stories that will be told in this same universe, but it’s just not the same.

Still, our tickets are in a decent spot, so we’ll have a good experience, I hope. And we will bring our ear plugs just in case, since we will be going to the same theater that one other time had the volume cranked so high that it actually was hurting both my ears and my wife’s ears, and I suspect some other people in the crowd as well.

We will be having copious amounts of popcorn that day. Oh my gosh, is there anything better than movie theater popcorn? At least when it is fresh. Once I got popcorn that was so stale that it had clearly come from the previous evening, but other than that it has always been good. One time it was just incredibly spectacular, and we got 2 or 3 refills on our large bucket that day. That was for just 2 of us to share, so we probably gained approximately twelve pounds each from that popcorn, considering we added a lot of extra butter.

Can you tell I like popcorn?

Anyway, I’m torn between a couple of theories on who Rey is and whether she is the Skywalker in question for this movie. I used to be absolutely convinced, but now I’m not so sure. I’ve read some stuff about Palpatine having a secret base on Jakku, where he may have kept another child like Anakin was. Supposedly the rebels knew about the base (though maybe not about the force sensitive child), and were heading there when the remains of the Empire’s fleet met them there to stop them.

That was the Battle of Jakku, which would have taken place well before Rey came around. If the theory that this base had a force sensitive child within, then perhaps that child grew up to be a junk trader who had a child and then sold her off for drinking money. That would tie everything up nicely, because it would explain Rey’s strength and force abilities, while still leaving what Kylo said in The Last Jedi as a fact.

Just a thought. I’m overthinking all of this a lot lately. We’ve bought about seven or eight Star Wars shirts, a bunch of Star Wars plushies, Legos, and assorted other Star Wars items in the past month because we are so excited about this movie.


Everyone have a happy Thanksgiving!
