Another crazy star wars fan theory, and I really hope it's accurate:

The tantrums and "emo" Vader-fanboying probably didn't help either.

Also, if Rey doesn't turn out to be a Skywalker, I will be pissed!!

So there's a new Chewbacca since Peter Mayhew is in bad health these days.

Also the scene was really fucking stupid

Why didn't it blow Ben away? No real reason

Being inconsistent doesn't make you a badass

I'm surprised he's still kicking to be honest

Last Jedi teaser:

http://www.theverge.com/2017/4/14/14870102/star-wars-the-last-jedi-trailer-released-2017-celebration

Not much to get me hyped, as this felt like true teaser... nothing really shown outside of quick snippets. The one thing I glean from this is that Luke is moving on from the Jedi ways, so perhaps he will teach Rey how to embrace her emotions but in a positive way.

It would be super devestating if Luke's latest student also falls to the darkside. But it sounds like Luke has learned from Ben Solo's fall. The Jedi are inherently flawed trying to repress people's emotions yet still expecting them to have a general love for all life. This creates dark Jedi. This gives rise to the Sith. And it ultimately leaves your light side powers muddled and weakened when morally gray conflicts arise.

And the OT showed us that Luke had to step away from what Yoda and Obi wanted to win. They just wanted him to outright destroy Vader and then move into the Emperor (that last part is implied but not stated outright). Instead, Luke sought to redeem his father, and while he didn't erase years of evil, he called Vader to drawing back into the light side a bit... enough to kill the Emperor and rekindle some humanity.

Being a stoic monk may work for some like Yoda, but it can't be the only way. Hell, the Jedi were nabbing kids up across the galaxy and drilling the Jedi way into their heads from toddler age. They were essentially eliminating any divergent thoughts on how to use the Force among people with real Force potential.

Luke can build a new way of thinking from the ground up. But it seems like Snoke is doing something similar with Kylo and the Knights of Ren... even though he seems to be doing a modified take on the Sith. No rule of two, as we know there is a group of Knights. And their end goal might be different... yet to be seen.
