J.J. Abrams Knows Who Rey's Parents Are in 'Star Wars'

J.J. Abrams keeps on getting asked about Star Wars: The Force Awakens despite having loads of other projects to promote and the latest info he revealed is about Rey’s secret identity.

Daisy Ridley‘s character is shrouded with secrecy in the film and the audience is not told who her parents are.

“I know quite a bit,” J.J. told reporters at the TCA Tour on Tuesday (January 12), according to EW.

“Obviously it’s not for me to talk about in this moment because this is Rian [Johnson]’s story to continue now. The last thing I’m going to do is reveal something that he would be upset about. I want to make sure that Rian gets the courtesy that he showed me,” he added.

“My enthusiasm for Episode VIII is enormous,” J.J. continued. “I’m very much excited for and very jealous of anyone, especially Rian, who gets to work so closely with this extraordinary cast and crew, truly an amazing group. In that regard for sure, but I’m also relieved to have gotten a chance to do a Star Wars movie.”
