Rey was the star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens but her origins has still been kept under wraps by the directors. A lot of rumors about her origins have now surfaced online and we might finally get a hint about her lineage in the upcoming ?Star Wars 8?.
The reveal about Rey?s parents might not come until the last episode according to Episode 9 director Colin Treverrow, ?We?re going to make sure that that answer is deeply and profoundly satisfying. Rey is a character that is important in this universe, not just in the context of The Force Awakens, but in the entire galaxy. She deserves it. We?ll make sure that that answer is something that feels like it was something that happened a long time ago, far away, and we?re just telling you what happened.?
Rey is Obi-Wan Kanobi?s granddaughter?
There are several reasons why Rey might be Kenobi?s granddaughter according to Screenrant. One of the most notable speculation is that Obi-Wan had a child with government official Duchess Satine Kryze and that child?s offspring might be Rey. If this is the case, Rey is the grandaughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi
Satine had expressed love for Obi-Wan when she was the leader of Mandalore. She was then killed by Darth Maul in an act of vengeance, trying to get back at Obi-Wan for defeating him in the movie Phantom Menace, Screen Rant speculates. Obi-Wan also told Satine that he would have left the Jedi Order for her. This leads to speculation that they might have had a child secretly.
It is also certain the Rey received some kind of special training as she easily squared up to Kylo Ren, who is an active jedi trainee. This theory also leads to other groundbreaking revelations for the saga, suggesting that it?s the Kenobi lineage that?s meant to give birth to a more peaceful world.
Rey being the granddaughter of Kenobi is a big plot twist that will change viewer?s perception that Star Wars is the tale of the Skywalkers. If the directors decide to go with this path, then ?the whole direction of the saga might be changed.
