I’m very curious about the character “Mara” that Keri Russell is portraying in Episode IX (BTW, her actual character name may not be Mara, but it’s currently her production code name). Might we see her in flashback scenes where she turns out to be Rey’s mom? Or, was she one of Luke’s students at his Jedi Academy and close friend of Ben. And she ends up being selected as Kylo’s elite Knight of Ren? I’m hoping this is the case. Would be cool to get a scene where Rey battles Mara and the other Knights of Ren.
Do you think the training or lack of in TLJ was appropriate? I think it would have been great to see Luke pass on his knowledge to Rey much like Yoda did him . Perhaps showing her flaws in her thinking and attitude as was taught him.
