I made a video comparison between the force vision and the movie’s present events. There are so many parallels between Rey and Kylo Ren and I believe their fates are intertwined and future have been altered.
The first scene Rey and the audience are certain know happened in the past is seeing Rey as a child yelling “No! Come Back!”, while being held back by Unkar Plutt.
Parallels align perfectly between Rey’s past and the movie’s present storyline, specifically what has transpired on Starkiller Base (refer to the video 0:00 - 0:06).
Past: (1) Rey looks downward at her younger self yelling for ‘presumably’ her parents to “Comeback” as the ship flies away. (2) She is physically being held back by Unkar Plutt telling her to be quiet. (3) The sky darkens and sun turns to red. Red light shines on her face. Does it symbolize the dark side? In the book, it has been hinted that Rey resisted the dark side in the final fight against Kylo Ren, when someone (Snoke?) told her to kill him.
Present: (1) Rey looks downward at Kylo Ren, who faces his father on the bridge. Han Solo tells him to “Come home” with him. (2) Han Solo implies that Snoke is using and manipulating Ben. Figuratively Snoke has a hold on Ben’s mind and free will. (3) When Starkiller Base finishes charging, the sky darkens and the sun turns red. Red light shades his face, symbolizing that he has been consumed by the dark.
Rey and Kylo Ren want to go back to their parents. Rey held on hope that her parents will return one day, while Kylo Ren has believed its ‘too late’ for him to go back. Both paralyzed in the same spot for years. Rey in Jakku and Kylo in the dark.
The force visions then shows us a future event that does occur in the same movie, which is the fight in the snowy forest of the Starkiller Base.
The force vision’s future event have altered drastically (refer to the video 0:06 - 0:12). Now Rey is fearless, Finn fights along side Rey, and Kylo Ren is unmasked.
Future: (1) Rey finds herself alone in a snowy forest. (2) Panic registered on her face, she starts to run frantically, until a masked Kylo Ren comes out from behind a tree with his lightsaber ignited. (3) Surprising her, Rey falls backward and out of the force vision.
Present: (1) Rey and Finn run away from Starkiller Base. (2) They stopped running when they saw Kylo Ren waiting for them with his lightsaber ignited. He is not wearing his mask. The mask represents Kylo Ren’s identity, which he let go during his confrontation with his father. (3) Rey faces Kylo Ren and aims her gun at him.
The future has changed, based on actions both have taken in the course of the movie.
After experiencing the force vision, Rey’s first instinct was to run away. Then decides to help BB-8 escape, when the First Order attacks Takodana. When she finally faces Kylo Ren for the first time, still frightened, she move backwards (instead of falling) while fifinv her gun. Indicating that the future has started to shift.
Hey, Jeff. I recently moved out of my home State and traveled halfway across the country. I left my friends and family and i don't have anybody out here. I love watching your and Austin's videos because they are comforting to me and make me feel less alone. I feel like i might have made a mistake moving away, but i also feel its too late to go back, and that i felt i had nothing left for me there. Would you have any advice for me? Sorry for bothering you. And thank you for your time.
I’ve moved away from my friends too, I used to live in San Diego for a while. So I’ve done it both ways. I moved from my friends and family here in Washington to San Diego, and then I ended up making friends there, moving back here to Washington, and leaving some family and new friends behind too. It can be tough, but you gotta do what you think is best for you. I will say there’s no shame in moving back, it’s not like you have to be strong if you don’t like what you’re doing or where you’re at, but there can be something said for stickin’ it out and trying to make it work, trying to make some new friends and build up something that you actually enjoy. I would just use the internet to hang with my friends from back home and all that, and that would at least help. I would suggest being careful when it comes to ‘moving back to be with friends’ though. You have to figure out what YOU want to do. A lot of people move on a lot after school/college (assumption here), i’m only really close with the people I was really close with before all that, friends i’d been close with my whole life. But I did that, I moved back to be with my friends and was kind of left behind when everyone went off to college, and was stuck in my own shitty situation for a while. My advice would just be… figure out what YOU want, and how you’re going to do that, because you have to know that in order to be able to set yourself up for your future.
Words can’t even describe my feelings when the music starts at 18:48 in episode 31. Just the whole atmosphere leading up to the reveal is insane. I cannot stop watching that bit over and over again.
The way the music starts as the sun comes through the clouds and Mikasa is ready to attack… Reiners speech about being surrounded by idiots and how he was only a kid back then, and now he knows its too late to go back, Its heart breaking.
And then when the music shifts as he heals his arm… I’m almost in tears at how amazing the entire scene is. Mikasas animation as she slices in to Reiner and Bertholdt is absolutely flawless. And my god do I feel sorry for Bertholdt when he’s on the floor. That noise he make is heart wrenching.
There is only one flaw in the scene and that is when Reiner tackles Mikasa off of Bertholdt (which is one of the best parts btw) he still has his right hand, but I think that can be forgiven.
I think its good that anime viewers see the feared collossal titan in tears before he transforms because now they know hes just a scared kid. The energy crackling off Reiner and Bertholdt is incredible, and then the music changes to a theme we’re already familiar with from s1.
I just can’t get over this part of the anime. It might be my favorite part forever.
And I’m really hoping Robert McCollum and David Matranga can voice this scene as well as Yoshimasa Hosoya and Tomohisa Hashizume in the dub.
you’ve burdened yourself with the universe. don’t you know what that does?the universe will keep burning and dying and no matter how much you try you can never really save it. so you break and you bend and youACHE because you can’t mend what will never be safe. but oh, there’s a reason the universe let’s you try,because the starschoose you as theirA N C H O Rbecause the world let it be decreed that you look beautiful when you burn,that you look like amiraclewhen you mourn thatyou look like the universe collapsing.
