AceShowbiz - Rey's (Daisy Ridley) parentage has been a major topic of speculation since the beginning of the new Skywalker saga. Now, an alleged leaked detail of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" has surfaced online, sharing shocking new theory of the identity of Rey's parent.
According to the rumor originally posted for MakingStarWars.net, [SPOILER ALERT!] Rey's father is none other than Han Solo (Harrison Ford), who is also the father to Ben Solo a.k.a. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). The theory says that when Han and Leia (Carrie Fisher) became estranged years before the events in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", Han had an affair with a mystery woman, who gave birth to a child, Rey.
It's also said that Ben Solo learned of the affair, which triggered his violent reaction. This led to him being sent to Luke for training. It's not mentioned though if Leia knows about Han's affair and/or love child.
Rumor has it, Han's old friend Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) has an important role in unraveling the identity of Rey's parent. He will reportedly tell Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Isaac) the secret, but Rey will hear about this from another source. While there's no word on who the mother is, it's noted that Rey's mother is definitely not Keri Russell's new character Zorri Bliss.
Should this be true, it means Rey is not a Skywalker, but has a strong tie to Ben Solo. This explains her instant connection to Han, whom she saw as a father figure, and her complicated relation with Ben a.k.a. Kylo.
Adam Driver recently talked about the change of dynamic between Rey and Kylo, after she attempted to bring him to the light in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". "If you were the product of those two people, two very strong personalities who seemed to be almost more committed to a cause than anything else, what's that like?" he told Entertainment Weekly of Kyle being the son of Leia and Han Solo. "How do you form friendships out of that? How do you understand the weight of that? And if there's no one around you guiding you, or articulating things the right way ... it can easily go awry."
He added, "I think there's a part of Rey that's like, dude, you f**king had it all, you had it all, that was always a big question during filming: you had it all and you let it go."
The third and final film in the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy, "The Rise of Skywalker" is scheduled to hit theaters across the nation on December 20. J. J. Abrams is back to serve behind the lens.
