What's up Star Wars fans? You want some cool news, well here you go! During a recent screening of her new documentary The Eagle Huntress, Daisy Ridley revealed some cool tidbits about Rey!
While briefly speaking with the good folks over at Vulture, the actress seemingly revealed that we will find out who Rey's parents are in the upcoming Rian Johnson directed Star Wars: Episode VIII. The highly anticipated sequel is currently set to hit theaters in December next year and while this has been a major speculation point, no one has come close to confirming as much.
Here are the cool comments from Daisy Ridley via StarWarsNewsNet:
First Daisy shared her excitement about the upcoming release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
“I am just excited to see how it is, because I have heard it is so so different, and its own thing. I have no idea what happens – I know the ending, but I have no idea really what happens in it.”
Ridley revealed that she hasn’t been following the fan theories about her lineage very closely. When asked by Vulture if Jyn Erso from Rogue One was Rey’s mother, she said:
“I mean, I think 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. I mean it could happen, especially in a galaxy far, far away.”
When asked about another popular theory, Daisy remained coy and said that we should just sit tight for one more year to find out about her lineage.
Another possibility is that Rey is related to Obi-Wan Kenobi. This theory is supported by her Kenobi-like costume, dexterity with Jedi mind tricks, and love of solitude. What does she think about that? “We will see in a year,” Ridley said. “Just sit tight on that question.”
