Although we learned about Rey’s parents in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi, director Rian Johnson has revealed that the door is still open and we will learn more about Rey’s origin the next movie.
The director’s latest comments came during his recent interview with The Huffington Post, where he commented on Rey’s origin. He said, “With all of these movies, Obi-Wan’s whole speech about a certain point of view always applies, so I think that you have to always think about the context of how information is given. But for me, dramatically, that’s why that reveal at that moment made sense.”
This is surprising considering Johnson previously said that Kylo Ren’s comments to Rey regarding her parents were correct. However, Johnson revealed that the latest twist made most sense. He said, “And same thing with Rey and her parentage. The easy thing would be, ‘Yes, your parents are so and so and here’s your place in the world. There you go.’ The hardest thing she could hear would be […] ‘No, you’re not going to get the answer. This is not going to define you. You’re going to have to find your own place in this world. Kylo is going to use that even as leverage to try and make you feel insecure, and you’re going to have to stand on your own two feet.'”
At the moment, we will have to wait to find out if there will be another twist related to Rey’s parents. However, at the moment there’s no certainty that the whole mystery is solve as J.J. Abrams will ultimately decide how to deal with the storyline in the upcoming movie.
