'Spoiler Alert!' Adam Driver May Have Revealed A Clue About Rey's Identity!
Since the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of the biggest and probably most frustrating story-lines has been the identity of who Rey's (Daisy Ridley) parents are.
Well, we may be a step closer to figuring that out! It seems that Ridley's costar, Adam Driver, has given a clue as to where the mysterious Jedi in training may come from!
Adam Driver, who portrays Kylo Ren (born Ben Solo), recently spoke with GQ about the highly-anticipated premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and in the interview, he may have let slip a little fact about Rey's apparent lineage.
"You have, also, the hidden identity of this princess who's hiding who she really is so she can survive and Kylo Ren and her hiding behind these artifices," said Driver about Ridley's character while discussing the film and the 'connection' that Rey and Kylo share.
Did Driver just confirm that Rey could be a 'princess'? If that's so who exactly could her parents be?
Many fans have speculated that she is the long-lost daughter of Luke Skywalker, or perhaps even the granddaughter of Obi-Wan Kenobe (Luke and his father Anakin Skywalker's friend and mentor).
It could be one the biggest clues we've gotten or a strategical ploy to throw us off. Nonetheless, we won't have to keep guessing much longer. The Last Jedi is set to be premiered in theaters on Dec. 15.
The movie will pick up directly from where The Force Awakens left off, where Rey discovered the whereabouts of the legendary Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). From the previews and trailers released, it is to be assumed that Skywalker will take Rey —albeit unwillingly— under his wing and show her the ways of the force. Kylo Ren will be recovering from his battle with Rey from the previous film and will continue to struggle with the dark force that has consumed him.
Star Wars, was first released in 1977, with the first film of the franchise being A New Hope. Following the film came the release of The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi. In 1999, a prequel series was created to showcase the back-story of the original film's main villain, Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker), and how he came to be.
Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and the late Carrie Fisher all reprised their roles in The Force Awakens and Fisher, who died last year will also be featured in The Last Jedi alongside Hamill.
Ford's character, Han Solo, was killed in The Force Awakens, but will have his own spin-off film, titled, 'Solo'.
Driver also spoke about the backlash he feared receiving from the die-hard fans of the series when his character murdered Solo, (Kylo Ren's father).
"When I watched the premiere, I felt sick to my stomach. Immediately, I thought I was going to puke. I was holding my wife's hand, and she's like, 'You're really cold. Are you OK?' Because I just knew what was coming-I kill Harrison Ford-and I didn't know how this audience of 2,000 people was going to respond to it, you know?" he stated.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters on Dec. 15!
