I’m still trying to figure out what kind of movie they can make if they don’t do anything more with her character. I heard a rumor that she’s going to have a kid in this one, but I think that’s Rey-lo fan fiction.
It's the exact same arc Poe and Finn will have too. Because really, what else do they have?
It's interesting how ESB enhanced the relationship between all the characters while TLJ did the exact opposite by splitting the main three good guys apart for the entire film. Why did they do that? Or to ask a better question, why did they do that only to have everyone back together at the end?
I don't think Rey will have a child. If the father is Finn or Poe (the only two real options), I think people would have wanted to see their relationship build up instead of tuning in on a couple of years of domestic bliss. if it's not Finn or Poe, I think people would want to know who he is and his background, and I don't think having him dead at the start would satisfy anyone.
And I still think that having Dead Fisher will be more distracting than having no Fisher at all. If they must, have Rey dream her voice during some Force Dream because she's f'ing dead at the start.
