Who are Rey’s parents? It’s probably the biggest mystery to come out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Basically everyone’s a suspect — but now, we can chop a huge number of people off the list: every single character in The Force Awakens. At a discussion as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, J.J. Abrams was asked by a fan who Rey’s parents are. His answer, which you can see below, starts with the new information that her parents are not in The Force Awakens.
So neither Han, Leia, Luke or Snoke have any tie to the character, nor anyone else in the movie. Who do you think it is?
