Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lingering Question

Deadpool creator Robert Liefeld tweeted something interesting this morning! He wanted to know Twitter’s thoughts on an interesting topic: “what are your best Rey’s parents theories again?” It’s definitely interesting speculating til we get a real answer.

My guess/theory is that since Star Wars was originally a story about the Skywalkers, that it will continue to be about them. I’m still with the theory that Rey is Luke’s daughter. Why? The simplest answer, is when Maz is telling Rey about the lightsaber and says, “That lightsaber was Luke’s and his father’s before him and now it calls to you!” That is the thing that sticks in my head most when it comes to the parental lineage that is Rey’s. The rest of everything seems to get muddled up. But Daisy Ridley, the actress that plays Rey, stated that:

“I thought a lot was answered in ‘The Force Awakens’. Then after the screening I went for a drink with my agent and everyone, and we were chatting away and I realized that oh, in their minds it’s not answered at all!”

So what are your theories? Who do you think Rey’s parents are? Does it even matter in the grand scheme of things?
