@skrishna Tonally TLJ reminded me a lot of the Harry Potter franchise (and I think that's a good thing). But your last couple paragraphs (Rey breaking the familial/organizational cycles) may be my favorite things about it.
Esp. since Kylo Ren is obsessed with ancestry and the ancient Sith "apprentice kills master, takes new apprentice" cycle.
