That said new trilogy, is also said to new questions. And Star Wars can bring a good small lot, mostly centered on Rey. And it is finally time to provide some answers.
If The awakening of the Force is more or less a remake ofA new hope, it is not necessary to believe, it still has brought its fair share of original material, including through Rey which has brought with it, several mysteries that we will now discover. It reminds us that a big discussion had taken place regarding this character, and that is still happening today, to determine its origins.
If from the beginning we present it as a young woman, abandoned by her parents on Jaku, and who are expected to return, his awakening to the Force and his mastery of instinctive power, suggest that it is in the end far more than what she believes. Various theories are, therefore, mounted, being sister of Kylo Ren, the daughter of Luke, granddaughter of Obi Wan, or even a descendant of the Jyn Erso of Rogue One.
So many possibilities, and a few false trails evident, that the production is kept to confirm or not aware that it is the biggest mystery of the saga and probably material for a big coup de theatre is similar to that of The Empire against attack. And we can expect that the Last of The Jedi to answer to this big question, as has been more or less confirmed Rian Johnson in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly :
“It is important for me to the extent that it is important for her. And for her it is important because it raises the question of where is his place in all this. That is what will define it in this story ? In the previous, it was said that the answer was not in the past, that it was necessary to look ahead. But yet, she goes on this isolated island to meet a hero of the past.
She could be satisfied with this answer, but I think she still has that hope to find the place to which it belongs. I think she still believes that the place where it comes from will define where it will go.”
If, on his side, Daisy Ridley also confirmed that Rey will find her answers, she is stalling, however, the impact this could have on it :
“You can always find the answers but this does not mean that it will make your life easier. It is not as if discovering that his parents were going to put everything back in order, still less in the universe of Star Wars. Yes, this is much more likely to change their view of things or at least allow him to move forward in a more orderly manner, but in the end what needs to happen will happen, regardless of his powers. So, in my opinion, this is much less important than what she may be thinking.”
Statements a bit mysterious and rather contradictory to the extent that this question has animated a lot of debate and contributes to the interest of this new chapter. The mountain attends her in birth to a mouse ? Response on December 13.
