Daisy Ridley Debunks Fan Theory Regarding Rey's Parentage In STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII

Rey's parentage in the Star Wars universe is still a mystery after the events of The Force Awakens, though speculation continues. Actress Daisy Ridley has now ruled out one fan theory...

Rian Johnson's untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII is just over a year away from release, but it hasn't stopped fans from speculating about one of the biggest unanswered questions from The Force Awakens: Just who are Rey's parents? Not much has been provided in terms of evidence, though theories have mainly focused on Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, or even Obi Wan Kenobi as candidates.

One of the more recent theories is that Jyn Erso, the protagonist of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, could actually be Rey's mother. In an interview with Vulture, Rey actress Daisy Ridley debunked the theory due to the gap in the character's ages. “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,” Ridley said, though she was quick to not dismiss the theory entirely. "I mean it could happen, especially in a galaxy far, far away." 

Despite the lack of link between the two characters, Ridley said she is still very excited for Rogue One“I am just excited to see how it is, because I have heard it is so so different, and its own thing,” Ridley said. “I have no idea what happens – I know the ending, but I have no idea really what happens in it.”

As for finding out who Rey's parents really are, is it possible that Episode VIII will give us the answer? "We will see in a year," Ridley said cryptically. "Just sit tight on that question."

Star Wars: Episode VIII releases on December 15, 2017.
