You can speak for yourself, but you don't speak for "the fans" any more than me or any other single person.
I'm not the one saying that though. Johnson says it himself with the way he structured the movie. The fans want to know who Snoke is? Fuck it, he's dead. Don't care what they want.
The fans want to know who Rey's parents are? Fuck it, they're nobodies, unimportant.
The fans want to see the dramatic moment when Rey hands Luke back his lightsaber?
Fuck it, let's turn it into a comic moment and have him toss it over his shoulder.
