I'm still kind of shocked that we didn't get 'awful evil bastard who betrayed his parents and will stop at nothing to thwart Rey the true Jedi and the Beautiful Friendship Gang" marketing. That's at least what I expected and instead we got two awkward teenagers are wildly infatuated with each other and sneaking around. Not that I didn't expect that story because it had to go in that direction based on watching TFA plus the supporting information like JJ's DVD commentary. And common sense about how that type of character would be handled when one of the main writers and actors involved invoked their own relationships with one of their sons. It was just such a surprise after the SW fandom echo chamber kept insisting it was meant to be something else. Moral of the story, all of my secondary and university literature teachers: 2 versus SW BNFs and geek industry journalists*: 0

*Who are now jabbering on about "end of the Skywalker Saga" means "Kylo will die." Versus those of us here who have noticed all these repeating themes about Han's name and legacy. Including an entire standalone movie. How are these people considered experts when my high school English department would've flunked them for relying on fandom trivia instead of actually reading the films as a narrative?

Although it doesn't directly have to do with shooting or marketing, I remember around March-April 2016, Daisy liked some Reylo fanart on Instagram. It was also around the time when JJ let it slip that Rey's parents were not in TFA. Daisy commented "what can it all mean?!" on a Reylo post which she wasn't tagged in, implying that she was most likely scrolling through Reylo posts to see what other people thought about it. Looking back on it now, it seems like it fits the timeline of her heading to Ireland and filming the force bond scenes with Adam.

For those that are curious, or want to reminisce, here is what Daisy liked:

Fanart of Rey and Kylo close together (I think this is the first one that she liked).

Fanart of Rey taking Kylo's helmet off while he's shirtless. Smile

A picture joking about Rey and Kylo cutting their wedding cake.

I also remember how the official Star Wars account on facebook posted a picture of Rey and Kylo fighting and captioned it with "and together, we can rule the galaxy." They deleted it some time after, I think. A bit too close to foreshadowing Kylo's proposal to Rey in TLJ?

And in June 2016, Lucasfilm chose Erik Maell's bridal carry art for SW Celebration.

I wonder how Rey and Kylo's dynamic will be presented this time around.

LF has been having a grand old time marketing the Rey and Kylo parts of TLJ, even before the movie came out.

In the aftermath, the casino and Resistance subplots went by the wayside, and now it seems the throne room scene, and especially the thigh grab, are on or in everything. All the imagery and advertising they use is Rey, Kylo, and Crait. Even Luke and the early space battle took a backseat.

And remember a few months ago when there was a Reylo montage at a John Williams concert alongside Han-Leia and Anakin-Padme and there was an online meltdown? Terrific stuff. I do expect a nation-spanning meltdown when IX comes out, but LF hasn't been squeamish about Reylo marketing since last September/October, so I actually have high expectations.

Reading this whole thread in one go, I can't believe we will live this rollercoaster all over again next year. We had too much drama (and, Gods help me, I loved every single bit of that torture).
