J.J. Abrams Rey's Parents

We all know the story by now: Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced us to Rey (Daisy Ridley), a young woman who was abandoned by her parents on Jakku to live the life of a scavenger. She’s eventually swept into galactic action, but the question of her parentage loomed large over the film.

Star Wars fandom spent two years speculating about who her parents were, until Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi gave a definitive answer: they were no one of any importance. But now Simon Pegg, who played a role in The Force Awakens and is a longtime collaborator of writer/director J.J. Abrams, says Abrams’ initial plan for Rey’s parents was very different. Read More »

That’s why it was such a tragedy that they were kept apart in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But don’t worry, Finn-Rey shippers. That dynamic that you loved so much in Force Awakens will be back in Star Wars Episode 9.

jj abrams episode 8 story

With a massive franchise like Star Wars, you would expect that Lucasfilm wants the entire story planned out. But after Rian Johnson‘s radical, controversial The Last Jedi threw Star Wars tradition out the window, fans began wondering if there even is a master plan.

The answer: there might have been a plan once, but not anymore. According to Last Jedi star Daisy Ridley, when Abrams signed on to direct 2015’s The Force Awakens, he also mapped out the entire story for the new Star Wars trilogy. But the original JJ Abrams Episode 8 story was scrapped by Johnson.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

rey and poe romance

There are plenty of delusional Star Wars fans out there, and I like to think that I’m not one of them. But — and don’t judge me — I kind of ship Rey and Poe. Yes, I know they shared barely more than 10 seconds together in Star Wars: The Last Jedi! And yes, those 10 seconds basically consisted of them introducing themselves! But gosh darn it, if they don’t look cute together.

And I’m not the only one who read way too deeply into their brief but flirty exchange. There’s a whole set of delusional Star Wars fans who are secretly hoping for a Rey and Poe romance and their clamoring for a love story has finally made its way to Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Daisy Ridley. But I’m sorry DameRey shippers, she won’t give the answer you were looking for.
