STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Will Reveal More About Rey's Parents Says J.J. Abrams

A lone girl on a desolate planet, eeking out survival thanks to the destruction wrought from a previous war between the Jedi and Sith. It seemed destined that Rey would have some sort of connection to the original Star Wars trilogy, but director Rian Johnson's decision to subvert that (and many other) expectations led to the reveal that Rey's parents were junk traders that sold their child. However, persistent Star Wars fans refused to believe Kylo Ren and continue to make YouTube videos insisting that he was lying.

Well, The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams just provided a bunch of fuel to that fire. Speaking to ABC News following the Star Wars Celebration, The Force Awakens director revealed that the subject of Rey's parentage isn't a closed matter.

"I will say that we knew, going into this, that this movie, it had to be a satisfying conclusion. And we were well aware that that’s one of the things that’s been out there. I don’t want to say that what happens in Episode 8 [didn’t happen]. We have honored that. But I will say that there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.

There will be no less than 100 new YouTube videos on Rey's parents by the end of the week.

What do you make of Abrams' comments? The first remark that Episode IX has to be a satisfying conclusion seems to be a hint that The Rise of Skywalker will attempt to appease the diehard, lifelong Star Wars fans who went on to thrash The Last Jedi.
