Charles Rose: They were your kids?
George Lucas: Yeah, well they are. You know, I loved them. I created them. I'm very intimately involved in them. And, obviously to sell them off to...
Charles Rose: You sold them.
George Lucas: I sold them to the white slavers that take these things and, and uh (laughs)

You, uh...apparently don't get the idea that Rae is the new cool jedi kid on the block that is the latest to get ALL the power....
Piloting...resisting mind tricks...uncanny mechanic skills....all traits of strong jedi.
Wow, do you see feminist agenda in the clouds?
How could almost everyone in this thread forget how hard it was for Luke to become proficient as a Jedi (see the video below)?
Anakin began his Jedi training when he was a child (at the age of 9 years old, see the link below). In Episode 1, Anakin did show some abilities related to the force but he had little or no conscious control over them.
When Episode 2 begins Anakin is 19 years old. So, he had had about 10 years of Jedi training before he had achieved the mastery of the force we see from him in that film. The original trilogy and the prequels are consistent on this point, both Luke and Anakin had little or no conscious control over their force abilities until after they received proper training.
The facts above are consistent with what we hear from all the experienced Jedi in all six films, training is a requirement to become proficient in the ways of the force. It could be that Disney just decided to change all the rules that Lucas had established. I'm not saying that the theory I proposed in the original post is absolutely right.
But, it's as if most of the posters in this thread never saw the first six films.
That is not an appropriate response.

Anakin, Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Palpatine... all Jedi and Sith, things came easy for all of them. Amazingly good at anything. Smart, charismatic, piloting, politics, physical combat, ranged combat, surviving in extreme environments with nothing, unnatural intuition. What do they all have in common? A strong connection to the Force, why should Rey be any different?
It's an epic fantasy realm where anyone, children, male, female, 2 foot tall aliens and gigantic aliens can be equal in connection to a mysterious force that gives them unlimited powers.
This blogger is a massive idiot. Can't say what that makes anyone who takes his/her (equality you know) bait.
