Thanks to a recent update in the Star Wars Databank on Starwars.com, it appears that Lucasfilm has indeed confirmed some type of mysterious connection between Daisy Ridley's Rey character and Adam Driver's Kylo Ren character. Are they family? Were they both in the academy together when they were just padawans? What is the connection?
Our guess is...... they are cousins, that they were both being trained by Luke Skywalker until something tragic happened, something so powerfully bad that everything Skywalker was building was destroyed. Along with the destruction was the obvious separation on purpose or not of Rey, Kylo, and Luke, plus any other participants. Will we find out in The Last Jedi, probably not the full story until Star Wars: Episode IX?
The update to both Rey and Kylo’s entry calls attention to a strange and mysterious connection between the two. But what could that connection be? Since we don’t actually have the answer, all we can do is put the puzzle pieces together and speculate.
