Snoke, Rey, Anakin, all created by Palpatine from his DNA?

They all don't have fathers. Does this mean Palpatine created them using his DNA?

Rey does have a father. Palpatine's son, I believe. I thought they showed a brief shot of him in TRoS but I could be totally wrong. I did hear something that Palpatine's son was actually a clone of him...probably something from a book or something I'll never read.

Palpatine influenced the midichlorians to make Schmi pregnant with Anakin.

Later he cloned himself and one of the clones apparently went rogue and found a girlfriend/wife who he got pregnant and that baby was Rey.

Really? Huh, I missed that. I just thought it was his son.

The prequel trilogy had a few fan-ficcy moments (Anakin building C-3PO; the "Chosen One" nonsense), but the sequel trilogy really picked up the fanfic ball and ran it down the field.

IIRC, it's not explained in the movie. It was in the novelization.

The real answer is Disney didn't come up with a cohesive story arc for three movies before they started making them, so it's all a clusterfuck that was highly disappointing. I can almost guarantee Snoke, Palpatine, Kylo, and Rey's storylines didn't end the way they were originally meant to.

I can almost guarantee that they weren’t created with any ending in mind.

With the exception of maybe Han Solo, who I can imagine Ford requested finally be killed off once and for all, I doubt ANY character, new or old, ended the way they were originally meant to.

Still boggles my mind that noone amongst the countless number of writers and executives and producers thought to come up with a cohesive story for this multi billion dollar franchise. I know a lot of y'all were defending it saying you don't need a plot road map to make a successful trilogy. Well where are those defenders now? Putting 5 mins of thought into a bare bones plot and communicating that to the directors sure would have helped this trilogy.

I knew the sequels were in trouble when they changed the force rules. In the original movies, it took years of training and inward struggle to truly master the force.

Rey was a real master when she blew up Chewie, eh?

At no point in the trilogy was Rey a fully powered Force-user completely in control of her powers. Was she good? Yeah, she was an offspring of a *massively* powerful Force user, just like Luke and Leia were, so it's not a stretch to accept Rey would be strong.
This is a known thing since 1983 when Obi-Wan tells Luke "the Emperor knew that if Anakin were to have any offspring, they would be a threat to him", the Jedi know that direct offspring will be strong in the Force. That's why they didn't have their own, instead just hunted down rando babies and stole them to train them.

Getting stuck on the idea that the Force had hard and fast rules is the path to madness. Star Wars is not sci-fi, it's fantasy. It's about good and evil and overcoming adversity, not the effects of technology on humanity. It's one thing to draw up ship diagrams and such, but when it comes to the meta-physical stuff, you gotta get your head into a different space (no pun intended).

Yeah I remember about a year before TFA came out I predicted on my friend's Facebook page that Han Solo would die because Harrison Ford was on record of wanting him to die. Then one of his other friends, who is a huge SW fan, almost got offended by the notion and started an argument, lol. Guess I ended up winning that one in the end.

This reasonable post will have Fanboys slitting their wrists. Remember Boys, "down the road...".
