'Star Wars' Reddit Fan Proposes Theory About Rey's Family

Now that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is only a few weeks way, fans are getting excited to get answers.

One particular theory, posted by Reddit user The_Playboy, is making the rounds.

This person proposes that Rey (Daisy Ridley) is actually royalty.

“The royalties played always large part in the Star Wars universe,” he/she writes. “In the prequel era there were thousands of star systems with monarchic government. Before the Galactic Empire, many planets (for example Naboo, Mandalor, Lasan) were ruled by royal families.”

The user continues, “I think Rey is from a royal family, from a planet unknown to the audience. The First Order invaded Rey’s homeworld, and wiped them out. Maybe a group of loyal guards escaped with the young Rey, and left her on Jakku for her own safety.”

Of course, this is all conjecture. A lot of fans believe the Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) character in Rogue One will turn out to be Rey’s mother.

We’ll find out more when the film hits theaters on December 16!

    Hopefully something simple and cool, unlike the first movie (which was meant to be an adventure and turned out a complete mess, despite some of its brilliance, unfortunately :))

  • kgbme

    err MOST of the brilliance – someone had, seriously, fucked something up in there and the final product is LACKING

    OKay, if Buzzfeed is also going to write abut it at least 3 articles – than it is a scam to widen the Star Wars storyline to other possible ‘royal connections’ to make ¥ € $ / 43 more movies.

  • tom

    stop the insanity,disney is ruining the series with many sequels,prequels,stand alone movies to recoup their investment.the real star war fans are just too stupid to realize that.

  • casualsuede

    Makes no sense, why would royalty leave their own on a planet, where she is basically right above a slave in rank?
