Since The Force Awakens was released, fans have been wondering who Rey parents are and came up with many, many theories. Answers are finally coming this December. After The Last Jedi panel on Friday, the cast and crew were interviewed and Rian Johnson said Rey’s parentage will absolutely be addressed in the movie. At one point in the video when the journalist asked him if there will be clarification, he said “it depends …” before backtracking. It obviously doesn’t point to the confirmation of any theory but I’m sure it will launch fans into more speculation on some of the theories.

Another interesting interview is this one where Daisy Ridley talks about Rey and Luke and she mentions that when Luke sees her with his family lightsaber at the end of The Force Awakens, he doesn’t know who she is. The fact that he doesn’t who she is would suggest she may not be a Skywalker. One thing is sure is we will know the answer when The Last Jedi is released.
