Will Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Reveal Who Rey’s Parents Are? Director JJ Abrams Responds

One of the biggest questions about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is if the sci-fi film will address Rey’s parentage. We still don’t know, but now director JJ Abrams has teased that there is “more to the story” than what we’ve seen so far as it related to who Rey’s parents are.

Abrams was asked directly by ABC News, “Are we going to find out who Rey’s parents are?” Abrams responded by saying he intends to have The Rise of Skywalker end in a satisfying manner, and that’s important given the film is the end of not only the new trilogy that began with 2015’s The Force Awakens, but also what’s known as the Skywalker Saga that began in 1977. He went on to say that The Rise of Skywalker will “honor” The Last Jedi, but it remains to be seen if viewers will find out who Rey’s parents actually are.

“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 [the discussion surrounding Rey’s parents is] one of the things that’s been out there. I don’t want to say that what happens in Episode 8 [didn’t happen],” Abrams said (via IGN). “We have honored that. But I will say that there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.”

In The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) told Rey (Daisy Ridley) that her parents were no one of significance; they were only “filthy junk traders,” according to Kylo Ren. Because it was Kylo Ren who told Rey this in the midst of an tense, emotional scene where he was trying to manipulate her, many have wondered and theorised that Kylo Ren might have been lying or obscuring the real truth about her parents.

The Rise of Skywalker comes to theatres in December, so we’ll find out soon enough. The movie is said to be the last one for some time, as Lucasfilm is putting the series on “hiatus.” You can check out the first teaser trailer for The Rise of Skywalker in the embed above.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
