Daisy Ridley Says The Rise of Skywalker Will Reveal Who Rey’s Parents Are

Do you want to know who Rey’s parents are? Apparently we will know by the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker according to Daisy Ridley.

It’s one of the biggest mysteries heading into Star Wars Episode 9. Forget the Emperor’s laugh for a moment, because Daisy Ridley is intent on bringing back one of 2017’s hottest water-cooler conversations: who are Rey’s parents? This all comes off the back of Ridley revealing in a recent interview that everything will be cleared up by the end of The Rise of Skywalker.

“[Director J.J. Abrams] did say the question [over the identity of Rey’s parents] will be answered,” Ridley told USA Today. “So, at the end of the film, you know what the dealio is.” No, that’s not a typo. She actually said dealio.

If you thought the identity of Rey’s parents was revealed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then, no, we’re not playing Jedi mind tricks on you. Director Rian Johnson’s film did actually answer the mystery, but in a roundabout way.

During a bit of Force bonding between Kylo Ren and Rey, the Sith Lord reveals that Rey’s parents were actually… no one important. Specifically, that they were “filthy junk traders, who sold [Rey] off for drinking money. They’re dead in a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert.”

So who do you think Rey’s parents are? Let us know your thoughts on social media.
