Rey’s Parents Star Wars 9
One of the biggest mysteries in the Star Wars franchise was seemingly solved in The Last Jedi, when Rey learned her parents were nothing but lowlife junkers who traded their daughter to get off the planet.
While some fans were naturally disappointed in the reveal, the idea fit with the theme of this trilogy that the Force is open to anyone—not just the powerful Skywalker family. In a new interview with The Huffington Post, director/writer Rian Johnson explained that his decision created the hardest possible thing for Rey to deal with, as Luke did in The Empire Strikes Back.
“The easy thing would be, ‘Yes, your parents are so and so and here’s your place in the world. There you go.’ The hardest thing she could hear would be […] ‘No, you’re not going to get the answer. This is not going to define you. You’re going to have to find your own place in this world. Kylo is going to use that even as leverage to try and make you feel insecure, and you’re going to have to stand on your own two feet.’”
But Johnson also kept the mystery alive, saying, “Anything’s still open, and I’m not writing the next film. [J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio] are doing it.”
Certainly this would create an interesting bait and switch, but also go against Johnson and Abrams’s theories about the Force in this series. Hopefully we’ll know in 2019.
