If you are not a fan of the prequels you may like this observation …
When the Star Wars-themed toy packaging for Force Friday was released featuring Rey, Poe, and Finn in their Last Jedi outfits the internet was quick to point out that Ray is not only holding Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber but that she’s sporting a new hair cut. But what everyone missed was what she’s NOT wearing.
The Nuke the Fridge crew also noticed that Rey, being a Jedi in training, is not wearing a Padawan Braid. According to Star Wars Wikia, a Padawan Braid was a type of braid worn by Jedi Padawans (Jedi’s in training) who were of a species that grew hair on their heads, although some hairless Padawans fashioned braids out of silka beads and other materials. When a Padawan was declared a Knight, the braid was sheared off with a lightsaber. If a Padawan was expelled from the Order, the braid was ripped off, as happened to Ahsoka Tano.
Since Disney has taken over the Star Wars franchise, it seems as if the prequels, storyline-wise, do not necessarily exist.
