    J.J. Abrams gives a big clue about Rey's parents in 'Star Wars'

    April 15
    NEW YORK


    J.J. Abrams just gave a big clue to one of the biggest mysteries in the "Star Wars" universe.

    Speaking at New York's Tribeca Film Festival on Friday night, the director of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens, said that the parents of the film's heroine, Rey, were not in the hit Disney (DIS) film.

    "Rey's parents are not in Episode VII," Abrams said to the audience. "So I can't possibly at this moment tell you who they are."

    The fact the character played by Daisy Ridley can use the film's all powerful Force has fans of the saga speculating that she may be the daughter of "Star Wars" characters like Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia and Han Solo.

    However, Abrams' comments appear to take those characters out of the running seeing that they were all in "Force Awakens."

    Since opening in December, "The Force Awakens" has shattered box office records before going on to make more than $2 billion worldwide.

    The next film in the series, Episode VIII, is set for release on December 15, 2017.

    Maybe Episode VIII will have a character tell Rey, "I am your father," but until then fans will just have to keep guessing.

    He corrected his statement the next day, saying what he meant was the identity of Rey's parents wasn't revealed in the movie. Which is a dumb thing to say, because we all already knew that.

    Interesting story. I don't want to believe him though, I still think its Luke.

    Too bad you didn't tag this thread tho... I've never been to the sports forums before! Is this worse than the hoochie bin?

    Things tend to move a little slower here in the Sports Forum. While it would be considered rude to just delete the tag less thread, the Sports Forum has a very liberal "inclusive" vibe.

    @Flabo you are welcome to hang out as long as you like, just remember to tag any thread you create at the Stern Forum.

    Anything Star Wars is a popular topic here at the shed, allow me to summons one of the leading authorties about this subject for his opinion:
