According to a new rumor, it will be revealed in “Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker” that a more or less unfaithful Han Solo dad is the heroine Rey. But the rumor was denied by high authorities.
The question about Rey’s parents just doesn’t let some people go, and the directors JJ. Abrams (“Star Wars 7” and “Star Wars 9”) and Rian Johnson (“Star Wars 8”) did their best to keep it that way. In “The Force Awakens,” Rey (Daisy Ridley) doesn’t know who her parents are. In “The Last Jedi,” Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) first urges her to admit what she’s always feared, that Mom and Dad aren’t big names, and then she is directly told that their producers were junk dealers. He sold his daughter and now they are dead. But this revelation leaves a back door open.
Kylo, who is trying to convince Rey right now to take her side and therefore has an interest in making her feel lonely and vulnerable, could have lied. Or maybe he was just misinformed. In an interview with Collider at the premiere of the movie “Star Wars 8”, Rian Johnson said that perhaps the last word was not said on this, and after the release of the first trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” JJ. Abrams with the words quote: “We take into account what happens in ‘Episode 8’. But to the story [von Reys Eltern] heard more.“
The latest rumor about Reys’s parenting
Jason Ward from Well Connected Fan Site Making Star Wars spoke on a podcast about the rumor that Han Solo (Harrison Ford) was Rey’s father (via Reddit). How to protect yourself? Twitter He added that he was not sure enough that this rumor was true and therefore, unlike other rumors, he did not publish it on his website.
The rumor, which was of course circulating online, says: Rey is Han’s daughter, but not Leia’s daughter, and therefore is not a Skywalker. When Leia began training with Luke, she separated from her husband, who later got into the bunk with another unknown woman and fathered Rey. Ben Solo knew about the matter, though not necessarily because of Rey, and got angry and sent Luke about it.
Anyone who has read the newer canonical “Star Wars” books “Last Shot” (about Han and Lando) and “Blutlinie” (about Leia), both, at least in part, between “Star Wars 6” and “Star Wars 7 ”play, anyway doubts may arise about this rumor. Han and Leia have a long-distance relationship, but it is very intact. And “Bloodline” is set just six years before “The Force Awakens.” That doesn’t have to mean anything, after all, the relationship between the former princess and the smuggler is not at the center of the story here or there, so we listen to “Star Wars” guru Pablo Hidalgo.
Why is the rumor rubbish?
Pablo Hidalgo works for Lucasfilm and is considered one of the greatest connoisseurs of “Star Wars”. It belongs to the so-called group of stories, which ensures that everything fits into the new “Star Wars” stories and that there are not as many contradictions between movies and books / comics / video games as in the past. Hidalgo also repeatedly reports on “Star Wars” discussions on Twitter and now wrote about the Reys-Papa rumor:
“That doesn’t fit the timeline. Han and Leia were together until about five years before The Force Awakens, before everything went to hell, and Rey is [in Star Wars 7] 19“
