According to a user on Reddit, the captioning throws up some interesting possibilities in terms of who exactly Snoke and Luke Skywalker are talking to at key moments.

“The former is the combination the word ‘女’, which means female and ‘尔’ which means you; while the latter is gender neutral that can be used to indicates female and male, but mainly used for male.

“This means that when Snoke says ‘When I found you’, Snoke is talking to a female character, which in my opinion is most likely Rey at this point.”

It was assumed, given the editing of the clip, that he was talking to Kylo Ren – but does this prove Rey is the subject of his rousing speech?The poster continued: “After that, near the end of the trailer, when Snoke says ‘Fulfill your destiny’, the ‘you’ the subtitle wrote is now ‘你’, which means that Snoke talking to a male character now.“So at this point, Snoke is not probably referring to Kylo or other male characters.”

There’s more – when Luke Skywalker says “This is not going to end the way you think”, it was previously thought he was talking to Rey. Indeed, Star Wars theorist Mike Zeroh had a whole theory suggesting Rey had a physical altercation with him in the lead-up to that moment.
