J.J. Abrams Reveals Major 'Star Wars' Secret About Rey's Parents

J.J. Abrams just revealed a major hint about Rey’s parents while speaking at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on Friday (April 15).

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens director revealed that Rey’s parents weren’t featured in Episode VII.

“Rey’s parents are not in Episode VII. So I can’t possibly say in this moment who they are. But I will say it is something that Rey thinks about, too,” he explained.

This seems to rule out the popular theory that Rey is the daughter of Luke Skywalker or Han Solo.

Fans will have to wait until Episode VIII hits theaters on December 15, 2017 for more information.
