Footage was shown at a shareholders meeting, some behind-the-scenes, some actual footage:

  • We saw a blockade runner in an abandoned looking hangar. An explosion knocking Stormtroopers in a starship hangar bay. Kylo Ren in a white room looking at the Vader helmet. Rey, Finn, Poe in Falcon cockpit. Lando briefly. Rey with Chewie's bowcastet. Finn in some abandoned looking ship interior.
  • Scott also says no mask for Kylo in that scene
  • He (Kylo) was in a room like in the rebel Blockade runner style, that bright white. And he's looking down as a box or container opens to reveal the charred Vader helmet. Again, he's not wearing a mask.
  • We saw a marketplace scene with Rey walking through and some aliens.
  • White room kind of looked like the interior of the Rebel Blockade runner. That bright white look. Scott says that the white room we saw Kylo in could be harkening back to Vader's meditation chamber is not a bad idea and might be it so maybe something in the structure of the room is similar to what he saw in the footage. MSW has also mentioned that Kylo's new ship is white.
  • Kylo didn't look sad so much as he looked pained. Looked like he was having a bad day.
  • Behind the scenes footage of Daisy doing wire work with a saber in hand, jumping and turning a somersault high up in the air with a lightsaber.
  • Kylo looks pretty much the same (hair, outfit), while Rey's hair looked mostly tied up
  • Besides Rey/Finn/Poe in the Falcon, there was someone else also but he didn't get a good look
  • Almost no dialogue except, just some saying we go together or in this together from Rey, Poe, Finn.
  • Poe walked into the cockpit to join the others; Rey was in the pilot seat.

Sounds like Rey is only getting more prominent and powerful by the day!

Rey Wars
Where the Reysistence battles evil that would foolishly seek to have harm done to her.

POSSIBLE leak of the names of the knights of ren....

kylo
kado
kane
zara
meka
sheru
haru

they all sound quite japanese (ren itself is japanese btw), quite a bit of a samurai influence there.

some of those sound female too

some are force-sensitive (thus likely to be ex-students of luke), and some are not force-sensitive

Sounds like Matt Smith's role in Episode 9 got cut out completely.

The way he says, "as far as I can tell, I'm not in ep9" suggests just that -- he was cast, they shot scenes, and then editors decided best to leave that character out.

Leak/rumor....

Kylo Ren and his knights are on Battu, and inside the Black Spire (described in the video above, that is part of the Galaxy's Edge theme park), and in there is a statue of a dude name Nihil Ren, who existed 1,000 years before, and who used to be called Darth Nihil, and he was apparently Snoke's master at some point in the distant past. Kylo and the KoR are all kneeling before the statue. Nihil Ren statue portrays him carrying a staff like Rey or Plagueis, with a lightsaber attached to it.

In Legends, there was a Darth Nihil, who was a Nagai Sith Lord.

Name is similar to Darth Nihilus

another confirmation.....Luke's x-wing buried underwater on ahch-to is back in ep9....but it's likely to be rey bringing it up from underwater, or, possibly not Luke's but a very similar looking one.
Lol if this happens.

There is no way they can make Rey seem human anymore, with adversities etc. It's the third movie now. Far too late. All they can do, which is what I believe they are doing, is to continue with Rey getting even stronger and infallible, BUT, just finding a sufficiently good reason/twist in ep9 WHY she's so powerful and perfect.

The thing is you can’t find a good reason as to why she’s so powerful. Anything at this point will come off as forced and natural. And even if they do find a good reason it won’t make the story or Rey’s character any better. It will just come off as an excuse for bad story telling.

They can’t go the midichlorian route as Anakin needing to train contradicts that and Disney are intent on dissassociating the new movies from the prequels.

It’s too late for the mind wipe theory as Luke or Leia would have told her.

Like needing to train also rules out it being passed on through genetics.
