Rey's parents

In a galaxy far, far away, one question reigns supreme for Star Wars fans: Who are Rey’s parents? It was one of the biggest mysteries raised in J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens, but will we find out the answer to the question in Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars: The Last Jedi this year, or will Abrams get to ask the question and answer it himself in Episode 9?

A new interview with Daisy Ridley, the actress who plays Rey, hints that the answer may be coming soon. Let’s take a look at her most recent quote on the matter and see if we can glean anything about when we’ll discover the truth about Rey’s parentage.

It’s no secret that the marketing for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been carefully composed to hide the film’s biggest secrets. In fact, there’s something to be said for how the modern trailer machine has gotten so good at selling these massive event films while leaving the biggest secrets and reveals hidden. There’s an art to it!

However, things start to get a little less controlled once you stray outside of the intended cone of vision. Specifically, international marketing tends to lean more heavily on the spoilers, hoping to cast a wider net over audiences that can sometimes be more fickle than predictable Americans. So before you take a look at the new Star Wars The Last Jedi international poster, which features a reveal that will probably be more effective in the actual movie, please note this spoiler warning.

Worst Episode of Stranger Things 2

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Stranger Things 2. Proceed with caution if you haven’t finished watching the new season yet.

The seventh episode of Stranger Things 2, entitled “The Lost Sister,” is the show’s largest divergence thus far. In it, Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) travels to Chicago to seek out her “sister,” a young woman named Kali (Linnea Berthelsen) who has “008” tattooed on her arm in the same place Eleven has her “011” and was also experimented on at the Hawkins Lab. The episode focuses on their relationship and doesn’t cut back to Hawkins or the other characters at all, and taking a quick glance at social media, it’s clear that the attempt to widen the show’s mythology did not succeed the way the Duffer Brothers hoped it would.

The showrunners have released a new statement defending the episode, and you can read their comments below. But watching that episode, I felt a twinge of worry about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That may seem a bit nutty, but I’ll explain why.

Star Wars live-action TV show

Lucasfilm has been flirting with the idea of making a live-action Star Wars TV show since the mid-2000s. Fifty hours worth of scripts were rumored to have been completed, and Disney acquired those unproduced scripts when they purchased Lucasfilm. We know the show had a working title of Star Wars: Underworld, and it would have taken place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, telling stories of an unseen side of the galaxy before eventually looping back around to reveal how Han Solo met Chewbacca, how Lando Calrissian lost the Millennium Falcon, and more. The show was basically scrapped, and at least some of those stories will be told in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

But the idea of a live-action Star Wars show remains intriguing, and it’s only a matter of time before one is given a green light. Might Dave Filoni, the executive producer of Star Wars Rebels, be leading the charge? Let’s look at some comments from a new interview with Filoni and see if we can read between the lines.
