[Spoilers for The Final Jedi, however come on]
The perfect resolution author Rian Johnson made in Star Wars: The Final Jedi (in addition to the porgs) was for Rey’s mother and father to be “filthy junk merchants,” in response to Kylo Ren, who offered her off for “consuming cash.” They have been remarkably unremarkable. It was a pleasant twist on a Star Wars trope, the place everybody on this humongous galaxy seemingly belongs to the identical (Skywalker) household. However with three phrases — “they have been no one” — Johnson thrillingly undid all of the fan theories, and there’s no cause for Rey’s mother and father to be introduced up once more.
To cite the brand new Han Solo, would that it have been so easy.
“Something’s nonetheless open, and I’m not writing the following movie” Johnson mentioned when requested if Rey’s linage will reemerge in Episode IX (I imply, Kylo might be mendacity…). “[J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio] are doing it. With all of those motion pictures, Obi-Wan’s complete speech a couple of sure viewpoint all the time applies, so I believe that it’s a must to all the time take into consideration the context of how info is given.”
From Simon Pegg’s viewpoint, Johnson made a mistake.
“I do know what J.J. type of meant or not less than was being chucked round,” the Prepared Participant One star (who performed Unkar Plutt in The Power Awakens) mentioned on the Comfortable Unhappy Confused podcast. “I believe that’s type of been undone barely by the final one. There was some discuss of a related lineage for her.”
Let the previous die, J.J. Kill it and delete the “Rey’s mother and father” draft, if it’s a must to.
