Star Wars Episode IX May Make Internet Trolls Very, Very Angry
A funny thing happened subtly near the end of Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Rey and Poe met for the first time. Even though we as an audience had known them for years as two heroes fighting for the resistance, these two had never officially been introduced on camera.
Now, going into Episode IX, it will be interesting to see how the dynamic between characters develops as different people get some time together on screen. And according to a very un-reliable leak, we might see a few new duos form. According to a Reddit user who claims to have a source working production on the upcoming movie:
I also heard that the movie will follow 3 plot lines: Poe and Finn in a mission, second plot line would follow Rey and Rose goin in a 'adventure' of some sorts, and the last plot line would be from Kylo's perspective.. Trying to keep the FO in line and fulfill his plans.
Poe and Finn is a classic bromance that goes all the way back to the beginning of The Force Awakens. But two characters we've never seen have an adventure of their own would be Rey and Rose.
As some fans have pointed out, this is more likely some sort of opening section in the first third of the movie, given other leaks that have pointed to certain characters on set together. Plus, Kylo and Rey would naturally have some sort of climactic confrontation.
Regardless, it would be great to see Rose have a big role to play in Star Wars IX-especially after the shit those horrible trolls put her through this year.
