Rey’s Costume Deepens the Last Jedi Mystery

Recommended Videos

The plot thickens after the news that Rian Johnson told the New York Times who was indicated by The Last Jedi‘s title. We received a box of Hasbro Star Wars toys—most pertaining to The Last Jedi—and I am VERY intrigued by the branding on a figure of Rey.

First of all, tiny plastic Rey looks badass and I cannot wait to see Daisy Ridley rock this costume, fighting staff, and lightsaber. But what immediately caught my eye was the description of the figure: Rey (Jedi Training)(TM). Here is confirmation that Rey is 100% undergoing full-on Jedi training with Luke. And if Luke is indeed the last Jedi, that means that something goes terribly wrong with their training—or it is cut tragically short for Reasons.

Will Rey ever become a Jedi? Maybe Episode 10 is called Star Wars: Rebirth of the Jedi. Star Wars: The Jedi Are Back, Bitches. Star Wars: I Bet You Thought You’d Seen The Last of Jedi. Star Wars: Just Kidding About that Last Jedi Thing NBD.

AND THEN THERE’S THIS. In the big box of assorted Star Wars toys that arrived in a Last Jedi-branded box, there are two figures of the same type: Rey—and Obi-Wan Kenobi. (*muffled sound of screaming*) Why would there be a random figure of Obi-Wan alongside Rey unless REY IS IN FACT A KENOBI AS I HAVE LONG SUSPECTED AND DREAMED? It’s not like old Obi-Wan is popular with the kids these days or an obvious choice to include in a box of toys all aimed at fans of this new generation of Star Wars. What are you trying to tell us, Hasbro?

REY IS A KENOBI AND I WILL DIE ON THIS HILL.

It is the high ground, after all.
