Are all of the Knights of Ren force-capable? Are there many of them? We don't know as it wasn't discussed at all. 

Yeah it's one of those things that was mentioned, not really relevant to TFA's plot and will be expanded upon in future films. I got the impression it's a small group of dark side users. Separate from the Sith who were eradicated. Maybe the Knights of Ren are ancient but went into hiding when the Sith came to power? Who knows.

Villains of the week for the next half dozen movies.

Maybe they're an offshoot of the Knights Who Say "Ni". Be a lot scarier.

Kylo's being set up as the main antagonist for the ST, but it is beneficial to Disney and the franchise to expand on the pool of villains for future films and other projects. The problem with the Sith is having only two of them was limiting and it's easy to see why they would want to move away from that.

This money-grubbing soul less approach to story telling is just saddening. Focus on telling *one* good story at the time and then take it from there. (Sadly prevailing in tv land too with the 'let's milk this show for as long as we can, making up - mostly redundant - stuff as we go...)

I've said for some time my main concern is the sequel trilogy. They can crank out as many Anthology films, TV shows or side projects as they want, but the ST needs to be done right. The Force Awakens was a good start (disagree if you want) and I feel like they will pull it off.

Once we finish the ST? That's when I will start to get worried. I'm hopeful they take a break from the main storyline timeline and don't just jump to the next trilogy. Tell some stories at other points in the universe. I can easily picture them doing a KOTOR trilogy or something along those lines.

Man I read a lot of stories with Vader vs Fett and they've literally grounded out a real grudging respect for each other.

Not a word of it.

So Rey is Luke's daughter, right?

Apparently Star Wars monopoly had too many quotas to fill.

That's the theory and IMO what the movie heavily hinted at. No one knows for sure and it could all be a giant red herring. Personally I would be surprised if she is not a Skywalker.

Ah, found it. They left out Rey? That does seem pretty damn tone deaf. She is the new main hero afterall. Even if the game is limited to 4 players, there is no reason they couldn't have included more than 4 tokens in the box.
