rey's island

The big questions coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens are who Rey’s parents are and where she comes from. Daisy Ridley‘s character even quips that its “a big mystery” early on in the film, and there are certainly a lot of theories going around to who it might be. One piece of evidence that many fans seem to be holding on to comes from John Williams‘ score from the film. We’ve posted about this in the past, but fans have analyzed Rey’s theme (the best song from the new movie) and have drawn some conclusions from that piece of music.

But did John Williams even know who Rey’s parents were when he wrote that piece or orchestration? If not, surely Oscar-nominated editor Maryann Brandon must have been told when she was helping J.J. Abrams shape the flow of the story in the editing room, right? The answer may surprise you — find out after the jump.

Like with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, production on Star Wars: Episode 8 has managed to keep its veil of secrecy almost completely intact. Other than distant photographs of the sets being constructed in Ireland and blurry photos of aliens and stuntmen in Dubrovnik, Disney and Lucasfilm’s investment in extensive security (which reportedly includes drones designed to take down other drones equipped with cameras) has paid off. So far. Filming isn’t done yet.

Our best look at the film’s sets so far have come from director Rian Johnson, who occasionally shares behind-the-scenes images on his social media. Now, he’s shared two new images and announced that filming had officially reached the halfway point.

star wars bloodline

A steady stream of Star Wars novels have been published since Disney wiped out the original expanded universe and started rebuilding the larger canon from scratch, but only a few of them have felt like required reading. The upcoming Star Wars: Bloodline is being promoted as something more than just another story set in this beloved universe – it sounds essential to understanding the state of the galaxy as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Now, it’s been revealed that Star Wars: Episode 8 director Rian Johnson contributed to the novel in some capacity, which is an intriguing prospect. It certainly sounds like the seeds of the next movie will be found here.
