Spoilers and rumors haven't stopped churning ever since the news that "Star Wars" season 8 is in production. Now, no less than JJ Abrams, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" director, is attributed as the source of the latest spoilers. It seems that he has some clues as to the mysterious relationship connecting Rey to Kylo Ren.
Rey's Past Has A Lot Of Speculations
The internet has been buzzed with a lot of rumors and speculations regarding Rey's origins. Daisy Ridley confirmed that "Star Wars" season 8 will reveal who Rey's parents are and where she came from. Was she the daughter of Obi-Wan? Her reply is: "We will see in a year. Just sit tight on that question."
Details Provided By JJ Abrams Are A Bit Clearer
Daisy's answer is really vague. But thanks to JJ Abrams, "Star Wars" fans will get a clearer picture. In an interview with Cinema Blend, Abrams said "Star Wars" season 8 will focus more on the connection between Rey and Kylo Ren. He also said that although Kylo Ren has not personally met Rey before the events pictured in "Star Wars" episode 7, he nevertheless has heard about Rey before.
There are speculations that say the upcoming movie sequel will also show how Kylo Ren was able to hear things about Rey before she met her. And perhaps episode 8 will also show his thought processes when he actually meets her for the first time. Abrams also discussed a brief moment shared by Rey and Leia at the second half of "Star Wars" episode 7.
Some say a bond between the two can be felt, probably because of Han Solo and the Force. Since Kylo Ren is Han Solo and Leia's son, could it be that he has a connection with Rey too? Fans still have a long wait till the end of next year to get the big reveal. But keeping their ears on spoilers like this will make their wait more bearable.
