The Rise Of Skywalker' Rumor Might Reveal Rey's Father
A new rumor for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker might reveal Rey’s true parentage as the saga concludes.
Potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ahead!
Rey’s parentage has been speculated by fans ever since her introduction in The Force Awakens. In The Last Jedi, it is revealed that Rey is a nobody with Kylo Ren saying they were drunk, junk traders. The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has said the revelation in that film was meant to mirror Luke’s in The Empire Strikes Back, with Rey getting the answer she didn’t want. Despite The Last Jedi revealing Rey as someone with insignificant parentage, J.J. Abrams has teased that The Rise of Skywalker will further explore the plot point.
A new rumor comes from a Making Star Wars Patreon exclusive, where it is said that Rey’s father might be Han Solo, but not Leia Organa’s daughter. The revelation could also come in a scene with Lando, Poe, and Finn. It is also said that Keri Russell’s Zorri Bliss is not Rey’s mother. Making Star Wars’ Jason Ward went on to tweet that this is still very much a rumor, so take this all with a grain of salt. You can check out the Reddit post containing the details of the rumor below:
