I've become a big fan of two theories , that Rey somehow is Obi-Wans granddaughter. Also possibly that Kylo is actually deceiving Snoke in order to destroy him. At the end I kinda hope Rey gets turned somehow also, just for the twist.

Quote
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, J.J. Abrams has responded to critics who feel the film is a “rip-off” or “remake” of A New Hope, stating that:

“It was obviously a wildly intentional thing that we go backwards, in some ways, to go forwards in the important ways, given that this is a genre — that Star Wars is a kind of specific gorgeous concoction of George [Lucas]’ — that combines all sorts of things. Ultimately the structure of Star Wars itself is as classic and tried and true as you can get. It was itself derivative of all of these things that George loved so much, from the most obvious, Flash Gordon and Joseph Campbell, to the [Akira] Kurosawa references, to Westerns — I mean, all of these elements were part of what made Star Wars. I can understand that someone might say, ‘Oh, it’s a complete rip-off! What was important for me was introducing brand new characters using relationships that were embracing the history that we know to tell a story that is new — to go backwards to go forwards. We inherited Star Wars. The story of history repeating itself was, I believe, an obvious and intentional thing, and the structure of meeting a character who comes from a nowhere desert and discovers that she has a power within her, where the bad guys have a weapon that is destructive but that ends up being destroyed — those simple tenets are by far the least important aspects of this movie, and they provide bones that were well-proven long before they were used in Star Wars.”

I'm on-board the Rey Kenobi theory. It makes too much sense. I can explain further if anybody wants.

I'm a huge fan of Star Wars. I'd love to hear your theory, Sarkhan.

I definetly see it having to be his grandaughter, perhaps even one he didnt know about and that Luke somehow found in his travels. What are your thoughts Sarkhan?

Anyone who doesn't understand why Ep 7 was so similar strikes me as someone who doesn't really get Star Wars or who hasn't bothered to watch it a thousand times like a Scotsman.
