‘Star Wars Episode 8’ Will Reveal Rey’s Parents, Hints Daisy Ridley

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a huge success in 2015, but one of the biggest questions from the film is, ‘Who are Rey’s parents?’

Could Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII provide some answers? It’s possible, according to Daisy Ridley.

During an interview with Vulture, the actress was asked if Rey is related to Obi Wan Kenobi.


“We will see in a year,” Ridley said. “Just sit tight on that question.”

Ridley seems to be hinting that fans will find out in Episode VIII.

There have been several fans theories about Rey’s parents.

Some think she’s Obi-Wan Kenobi’s daughters. Many believe she’s a member of the Skywalker family. Others think she could be connected to Jyn Erson, a character in the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Speaking of Rogue One, Ridley also revealed that she’s excited to see the film, even though she knows the ending.

“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 die what happens – I know the ending, but I have no idea what happens in it.”

Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Oscar Issac and Lupita Nyong’o also star in the Force Awakens sequel.

Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters December 15, 2017.
