    Not that we know of; and we don't have to see Rey's parents in order to learn more about them.

    Correct but it would be cool to see the complete vision of her abandonment. Maybe in a book one day. It seems the most interesting stories are being told in books and TV.

    TRoS can easily tell Rey's full story through dialogue; 'shunting' it off to a novel is completely unnecessary.

    I know they could. The question is will they.

    Given that I don't think we're going to see flashbacks to her story in TRoS, I would say that the answer is "yes".

    Making her parents anyone else would not technically retcon TLJ. It was a "Truth"? spoke by one of the villains, and one who can't be trusted as we saw that he was not only capable of betraying his family but also his new mentor. The main problem is that these 9 films are supposed to center on the skywalkers. right now the sequels center on Rey, whom is as of now, "Not a Skywalker". Okay that's fine but then this should be its own individual story about Rey that has nothing to do with the skywalkers. I believe that if Luke Han Leia and Ben were not skywalkers but instead new character specifically created for the sake of this story that the story would largely remain unchanged. There is as of now no reason to make these films part of the skywalker saga. It would have been better to make a brand new fresh story rather than drag the OG characters through the mud like they have been. the skywalkers being in the films does not make it about them. It's clearly Rey's journey which makes it about her not the skywalkers. she could have found Jake Starkiller instead and her story would be unchanged. She could be in the force rivalry with Roy Parbat son of Republic leader and Military general/former pirate, the story would not change. Think of it like this. you are reading harry potter and you get through the 7 books and a new one come out starting a new trilogy and it called Harry Potter and the Trolls of Scotland. The main character is this wizard that may or may not be the daughter of Ron and Hermione. There are hints thrown there that he could be, red hair genius wizard. But Harry has vanished and Ron is a divorced from Hermione. Hermione is the minister of magic. Hermione is relegated to a role that is an equal playing field to Cornelius fudge and Ron has a huge roll trying to teach this wizard how to dual and is killed by Hugo is actual son who is trying to resurrect Voldemort. The lead role is a random person who happens to cross paths with Ron but really has nothing to do with Harry. Should the story really be called Harry Potter and the Trolls of Scotland. No, it should be called Trolls of Scotland: A Wizard's Tale or something else. Its part of its own thing.

    This trilogy is just as much about Kylo’s journey as it is Rey’s. As RJ said

    “I think Rey and Kylo are almost like a dual protagonist[.] You identify with Rey, but also you identify with Kylo in a way that you never did with Vader. I know I do. Because if these movies are about adolescence, Kylo is that anger of adolescence and that rejection of the parents, and wanting to screw over your dad; and that’s something that all of us, to some degree, can identify with. And the idea of there being a bad guy who you identify with as much as you do the protagonist in some way, that’s really interesting.”

    Kylo is a Skywalker that is why this is part of the Skywalker saga. Even if you don’t view Kylo as a protagonist, the trilogy is still just as much about his story as it is Rey’s.

    That truth was not spoken by Kylo, but by Rey herself ("They were nobody"), people too often forget that. When Kylo said his "filthy junk traders" spill the whole thing was played as if he was echoing what Rey already knew.

    But the story is not over. Rey appears to have repressed memories about the people who brought her up and about her childhood. Those people who abandoned her may not have been her biological parents, maybe there is some drama surrounding her real parents, or maybe the junk traders were her real parents but their "selling her for drinking money" can be explained, clarified or even justified...

    Lucasfilm is aware of the apparent contradiction of having Rey - someone whom they've established as not being directly related to the Skywalker family - be the protagonist of the final Trilogy in an episodic Saga that is ultimately all about said family, and I feel confident that they will explain that apparent discrepancy... hence my opinion that she could potentially be of the Skywalker line through a sibling of Anakin's mother, Shmi.

    Personally, I maintain there is no discrepancy. Unlike previous saga trilogies, ST has two main protagonists, one a Skywalker descendant who represents the old and with who's arc the Skywalker Saga comes to an end, and another protagonist unrelate to that "mighty Skywalker blood" who represents the new and through who's arc post-Skywaker Star Wars is to be set up.

    So yeah, Rey is a nobody, I'm sure, powerful in her own right and the dawn of the future wave of Star Wars stories (which will not necessarily be ABOUT her, but will nonetheless take place in the shadow of whatever she & Ben achieves in RoS).

    By making Rey the protagonist and making her not a Skywalker it gives them flexibility to make movies down the line with Rey in it and it not be part of the Skywalker saga

    They already had that flexibility. They can make whatever movies they want. But its been stated countless times that 1-9 are the skywalker saga. if this is the end of it then the next trilogy can start its own numbering it wont need to be episode X-XII. in fact taking away the necessity of keeping with the numbers as they are allows for more flexibility of era. they can go backward or forward centuries. Episode X would have to fall in the ball park of 20-30 years (at the most) after episode IX an would need to deal with the next generation

    And that is what they are doing. However, if you make Rey a Skywalker and then in 10+ years if they want to make more movies continuing Rey’s story then it would technically be a continuation of the Skywalker saga and then IX will not be the end of the Skywalker saga. If she is not a Skywalker then if they want to continue her story they can and the Skywalker saga would still be finished.

    Not sure what the obsession with ending the Skywalker saga is other than marketing hype. In my opinion, they will leave open the possibility to return to the Skywalker story if the other films fail to capture audiences.

    They are going to leave it open to do more stories about Rey, Finn and Poe. This obviously will be many years in the future (10 at the soonest). At that point the Skywalker story will be over. Palpatine will be defeated for good. The Skywalkers will no longer be around. In the meantime we get completely new stories with new characters from either different time periods or different parts of the galaxy

    They need to take the stories either FAR into the future or FAR into the past. More adventures of Rey, Finn and Poe don't excite me all that much. I want to see the Origin of the Jedi and Jedi/Sith wars or something completely different set in the future.

    I suspect we will at some point end up seeing movies set place far in the past. Very possibly the next set of movies by Benioff and Weiss. However, while you are not invested in the new characters, there are many who are so any projects taking place in future times will likely involve them if some of those actors are willing to return.
