I'm wary of speculation after TLJ. I had a theory about Rey that fit with the SWU as we knew it, and also explained her strange natural proficiency. And then Rian Johnson blew it all out of the water. So, we'll see. But I'm not going to waste any more energy trying to figure out the ending of a story I can barely motivate myself to care about any more.

Umm, Solo, takes place 15 years before Ben (Kylo) was even born. So Qi'ra is about 37 years older than Ben and 47 years older than Rey.

No, I was reffering to Rey's age - hence she couldn't be the result of the trist between Solo and Qi'ra.

Oh. Well mid-40s is pushing it for women to have children, but it does happen here on Earth so it could happen in Star Wars. I'm not a proponent of this fan theory - I'm just saying it isn't impossible.

And you said she doesn't seem much older than Ben. I wouldn't have guessed you were talking about Rey because she is 10 years younger than Ben. Adam Driver is about 9 years older than Daisy Ridley. I don't think she looks older than him at all.

I have no idea who the actors are or their real ages. I have never been good with names, or dates, or times, or people, or places, or signs. To me, they look like about the same age in the film. This is how I know I am getting old. This also is an excellent demonstration of how individual perceptions can have degrees of difference.

So I guess Solo blu-ray sales have been better than expected. I have it on blu-ray and digital download, plus I can stream it on Disney Movies Anywhere.

Yeah, this is good news. From the moment I entered the Uptown theatre to see Solo and saw that it was nearly empty, I always felt that Solo wasn't given nearly enough credit as a good Star Wars movie. I'm glad to see that those of us who liked Solo were proven right in the end.
