After all, while Abrams can still use the Knights of Ren in some way, Supreme Leader Snoke has been taken off the table (as has any potentially major reveals about his backstory), while Rey’s parents have been outed as nobodies who sold their daughter for drinking money. That’s one twist which could still be changed, though, and based on remarks from Abrams’ friend Simon Pegg, it definitely sounds like the director had something different in mind when he was working on 2015’s The Force Awakens.
Whether or not Abrams now decides to delve into Rey’s parentage remains to be seen but it almost feels like a moot point at this stage and there are plenty of other plot holes he needs to touch on, including Leia’s whereabouts, the aforementioned Knights, and how this story is going to wrap up.
What do you guys think about Rey’s real parents possibly being revealed in Star Wars Episode IX? Should it be left alone or is it up to Abrams to fix this twist? Let us know your thoughts below.
