>literally no mention or hint of them in TLJ

Why did they get completely dropped as a plot point?
Did they not do well in focus groups?
>>
Because Rogue one squad shoud be Knights of Ren, but Disney ruined this idea because it's too dark for average audience.
>>

they are present when Snoke is telekinetically lifting Rey and the knights will prepare her for carbon freezing

>>
>>88866195
No one is obsessing over them for being "epic"; they're pointing out how they were introduced in TFA with zero context or explanation, how Disney made a big deal about them in marketing prior to TFA's release with hundreds of "WHO ARE THE KNIGHTS OF REN???" articles and shit, and how now this entire plot point has apparently been dropped entirely from future entries in the series - thus implying that Disney has no idea where they're really going with these movies, and that the Knights are destined to be a shitty JJ Abrams mystery box that will never be opened because he himself never made an answer for what their deal is.

JJ is a fucking hack. I would've been fine with the bigger death star, but that movie dropped to a 2/10 for me when we went right back to a rag tag group of x-wings taking on the empire (first order). I couldn't believe they actually destroyed the new republic

listen shithead, without referring me to tie-in books, where was it explained (I want transcript or webms or clips)

They are in aligned with the current ruling political system/entity in the galaxy. Why are they the resistance? It's such an obvious rename to get sympathy votes just like the Rebellion, only the Rebellion made sense because the Empire was the dominant and established power in the galaxy.
>the First Order
aside from the opening crawl, how does a remnant of the Empire manage to build weapons bigger and stronger when the Empire was at the time the status quo? And why exactly is the Order demanding representation from the New Republic? The actual government that overthrew the Order's parent organization?
>New Republic
Where is their fleet? Why can't they rein in the Order? Why are they even considering representation to the Order? This is like legitimizing neo Nazis into government. Where is the capital located? Was a name given at all?

Autistic fuckhead. The trilogy should be cohesive. If you want to discard the only good things about TFA then fuck off and make a gay little spinoff movie. They're more interesting than DUDE REMEMBER RED GUARDS?
>>
>>88865773
Just wait until it turns out Rey pulled a Revan, (bitch in back with spear), none of the Knights of Ren know each other's identities for some stupid reason, and during the genocide of the Jedi she gets head injury. Luke decides to wipe what was left of her memory utilizing the force and ditches her on Jakku. Luke gives her parts of his memory on Tatooine and splices it with her actual past I.E. parents ditching her.

Disney appeases all the Star Wars fans by alluding to Revan arc, "muh plot twist," and "force awakens" refers to normie becoming a Jedi. Mary Sue is basically Hitler, gets chosen by the force (a la chosen one), and redeems herself.

Snoke tortures Rey to bring back her memories at end of movie (that's the twist).

Snoke's Praetorian guards in TLJ

Are you a fucking shill? The Knights of Ren were trailerbait. People were pumped to see them not some ugly Mary Sue act bland.

The Knights of Ren were designed by Hasbro, they watched Naruto episodes for inspiration. JJ had to find a way to put them in the movie no matter what, he used that dumb flashback gimmick. Now you're hyped, you want to know about these knights don't you?

She was Snoke's strongest apprentice my man. He thought she was dead until the "awakening" happened.

Of course she was. And Snoke just abandoned someone like that on a desert planet for shits and giggles.
>>
>Rey was a knight of Ren at age 8, before she was dropped on Jakku

seems legit
>>
>>88870437
Good effort, but the timeline doesn't make sense at all. Kylo's betrayal occurred around 6 years before TFA (they only bothered explaining this in the fucking Bloodline novel).
>>
>all these Rey is le evil xD 'facts'
She was dumped on Jakku as a tiny young girl, we literally saw this in TFA, she never left the planet until TFA.

Rey is 19 in TFA, Kylo turned and ruined Luke's academy 6 years prior to TFA.

The timelines don't match up for Rey to have been involved in those incidents.
>>
>>88870665
>>Reason the Knights of Ren aren't around is because Luke killed
See>>88870437

Luke believes that she is the "chosen one." However, she has clearly turned to the dark side if she helped Kylo and friends do in the Jedi academy. Luke is conflicted, because if he kills her he kills "the balance to the force" and fucks fate up, however, she is highly dangerous.

Luke wipes her memory and ditches her on Jakku. Luke believes that the force will sort things out, which apparently it does when "Mary Sue" arrives as a good guy in TFA.

It's stupid writing. Thank J.J., Disney, whoever for this one.

Shit job with timelines is my subjective interpretation. She was young when she did all that shit. She was Snoke's most promising apprentice. Yes, it would have been more believable to make her older for massacre, but at same time how could you fully explain Luke sparing her?

He has to force fuck/torture her to get her to remember what happened. She lost 1 vs 1 to look (barely). J.J. was smug about Rey beating Kylo 1 vs 1 because Rey was trained just like Kylo was by Snoke.

The prequels are the definition of bland. Every single fucking thing is either beige or silver. Clothes, ships, buildings, droids, aliens.. BEIGE. The prequels are shit and so is your taste in films. Nuwars has yet to prove itself but the prequels were, are and always will be a colossal failures.

>A year ago, maybe even more than that, my producer Ram [Bergman] and I sat down with the folks at Lucasfilm and said, ‘OK, this is what we’re going to reveal here and there, and this stuff we’re never going to reveal until the movie comes out.’ We came up with a ‘no-fly list’ of, under no circumstances is this shown or that shown. It is a fascinating process. It’s something that for me, just having been a fan my whole life, suddenly being behind the curtain and seeing how it works and seeing how deliberate it is, has been really fascinating.”

JJ's major sin besides the diverty SJW shit is not knowing when to stop. He's like "well this would look cool let's do that" never mind if it has any bearing on reality, is feasible, makes for a good story, etc.
