Kanata’s Castle #36: Rey’s Reflections

by Kanata's Castle

Kanata’s Castle is back with Rey’s Reflections. In this episode, Becca and Devon take a closer look at Rey and how her character mirrors and parallels those that have come before her. When all is said and done, what is Rey’s role in the story? Well, be sure to sidle up to the bar and get comfy. That said, hang on to your drinks and enjoy the acquired taste that is, Kanata’s Castle.

A mirror reflects light. It reflects an image. A mirror produces an accurate representation of something else. A replica. Rey’s Reflections, in other words, Rey is a reminder of those that have come before: Han, Luke, Leia, and possibly, deeper down the line. She’s a Reality Check for the Big 3, without her none of them would be able to connect again (not literally, but figuratively speaking) and come full-circle in their story.
