Revan is a good choice, certainly from a profit standpoint. Merchandise, merchandise, merchandise. Not appearing in a movie doesn’t prevent him from being extremely popular. The only drawback I think would be that the old prequels weren’t so popular.
Well, I watched a video translating someone credible who saw the first 10 minutes in a showing in Mexico. They referenced a “new character” that made you like them immediately… maybe it’s him? Although, he seems more like a bad guy (or an ambiguous character), so maybe not.
I think Rey is the daughter of Luke and Maz, from Mark Hamill’s tweet. That said, he’s been trolling fans, I hope he was trolling us. I don’t want her to be Luke’s daughter. At the same time, Star Wars is the legacy of the Skywalkers. Leia isn’t really a Skywalkers, as she’ll never be a jedi. As such, Kylo isn’t really, either.
