STAR WARS: Daisy Ridley Insists That J.J. Abrams Devised The Secret Of Who Rey's Parents Are

The subject of Rey's parentage has led to one of the biggest fan debates in film history. Now that The Last Jedi is on the horizon we many get the answers and Daisy Ridley has provided some more info...

The Last Jedi is right around the corner, and after just a few years of new releases, Star Wars has already become part of the holiday season. The Force Awakens was only scratching the surface in what Disney would do with the property. But one of the biggest plotholes intentionally left unanswered was that of Rey's parentage.

During a profile on the making of The Last Jedi, Rolling Stone caught up with Rian Johnson and J.J. Abrams. It turns out that the latter spilled the beans in regards to the parentage, as well as when it was set in stone. 

Unlike almost everyone else in the world, Ridley has known for years who Rey’s parents are, since Abrams told her on the set of The Force Awakens. Ridley believes that nothing ever changed: “I thought what I was told in the beginning is what it is.” Which is odd, because Johnson insists he had free reign to come up with any answer he wanted to the question. “I wasn’t given any directive as to what that had to be,” he says. “I was never given the information that she is this or she is that.”

Lucasfilm had always played coy with the subject, and has caused confusion on multiple accounts. Some who worked on the film claimed that Luke was her father, while others denied those claims. Abrams made it clear that it was a tight kept secret, and that the answer was set well before the release of The Force Awakens, though it may not have seemed that way.

Hopefully we get these answers when The Last Jedi hits theaters in December.
