    I don’t see how Luke was an instant-Jedi. Aside from his piloting skill, which is merely an informed attribute until the very end of the movie, he’s not obviously talented or gifted. He nearly gets himself killed at the cantina and has to be rescued by Obi-Wan, and he only barely manages to deflect one blaster bolt with a lightsaber in a practice situation.

    Rey, on the other hand, begins manifesting Force skills all over the place in some blatantly contrived situations. It seems clear to me that the creators wanted to sell her hard, and frontloaded her with awesome regardless of how plausible that was in the story. Which, of course, makes her not awesome.
