In one of the biggest Star Wars 8 News revelations yet, Rey’s true parentage will soon be revealed! Daisy Ridley has issued a cryptic statement which more or less confirms the fact. There are several theories regarding Rey’s relation to the Solo families, Obi-Wan Kenobi or even Skywalker.
The multiple new faces in Star Wars: The Force Awakens left considerable intrigue in their wake, particularly with regard to Daisy Ridley’s Rey. Her relationship to famous family trees in the series has given rise to immense speculation. There are also theories on whether Rey can be linked to the protagonist of Rogue One: A Star Wars Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones).
Bringing the force abilities of Rey into the mix, several theories have come up regarding her connections to Solo families, Kenobi and Skywalker, according to the Screen Rant.
Daisy Ridley Gives Rise To Major Speculation
Star Wars 8 news alerts indicate that this riddle may finally be solved in Episode VIII. While promoting The Eagle Huntress, narrated and executive produced by her, Ridley did not deny or confirm her relationship with Obi-Wan Kenobi. She preferred, instead, to state that “We will see in a year…Just sit tight on that question,” notes Yahoo! This hints at the revelation of Rey’s actual lineage in Episode VIII when it premieres next year.
Ridley also talked of how she knows the ending to Rogue One but does not possess any idea of what actually happens in the same. She was also caught off guard with a question about Rey’s possible link to Jyn Erso.
Her take was that, “historically it wouldn’t work, because she is…Darth Vader is there…so she would ultimately be my great-grandma; no she would be my grandma.”
However, she also stated that “it could happen, especially in a galaxy far, far away.”
It remains to be seen whether this becomes the focal point of Star Wars 8 news revelations in the future.
Several theories also place Ridley as the daughter of Luke Skywalker or even as the granddaughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi. It appears certain that Rey’s parentage will impact the remainder of the trilogy and the galaxy in general. The ultimate revelation as to Rey’s true family was labeled as “deeply and profoundly satisfying” by Colin Trevorrow, the director of Star Wars: Episode IX.
The impending revelation is expected to induce a flurry of reactions. It can be assumed that one of these theories is likely to be proved right. For now, fans await the 2017 premiere with bated breath!
