For others, Episode VII lacks originality. No matter what we think, it is always important to listen to the father of Star Wars: George Lucas himslef. He explains his feelings on the new episode of the Star Wars franchise in a hour-long interview with Charlie Rose. This article provides a summary of the interview and a link to the video interview.

This sounds crazy right? The only reason I'm giving this theory some (very little) credibility is because J. J. Abrams said that the new trilogy is about the Skywalkers. You could say that Kylo Ren is a Skywalker by extension, but that would be a stretch. Continue reading to find out about this fan theory. Take it with a grain of salt, and of course, this article contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
