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.

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.”
