    You go dude!!:) I hope that there's more to Rey's parents than two alcoholic losers, but I refuse to get my hopes up for now. However, if the spoilers after the first premier of Ep. 9 that get leaked all over the internet reveal that there's something more significant about Rey's parents then I will be back here to celebrate with you. Until then, keep up that fight!:D

    I think she's a random girl as anti-climactic as that reveal was. I think people are fooling themselves thinking that'll change. Then again, if different I'll eat crow.

    Regardless if she's a nobody or a Skywalker (or Kenobi ect...) there's going to be a portion of the fan base that will be disappointed again after EPIX. As of now, all these theories are head canon because there's enough for JJ to go on to go in any direction he wants. Any writer worth 2 cents can spin that whichever way and make it seem plausible.

    As for JW, it's not impossible that Disney even asked him to make this comment. Even if the average fan enjoyed TLJ, for the average fan, there isn't much of a hook for EPIX. By having JW put Rey's parentage back into question won't turn any fans away and has the potential to draw more in. It's a win/win for Disney

    Crush on Rey,and deep love to Luke is common to millions.
    How to resist the call of heart,honest and pure,to finish it all within family.
    Though I use my brain to, I always watched Star Wars with my heart,like millions.We need food for our hearts.There is simply nothing more valuable they can offer to us(in the last chapter of Skywalker saga) than this giving us father-daughter resolution,a perfection.

    Using TLJ as an example for thought out plot twists isn't really a good idea either. If anything IX has the potential to make the twists less meta (deliberately misleading fans) and more in tune with the actual story.

    I really hoped so much for years that Rey is Luke's daughter, but I gave up hope. Rey is sadly a random. What a terrible waste. :(

    Well, in this case Star Wars will be lost for me.
    Reylo (another word for Rey Random) is thing I can not accept, because they have gone with Kylo's butchery (including his own father) to far,and I would never want my daughter to love such man. No anyone's daughter.
    I will hold my hope until the last moment in my belief they can not make such thing ,its not moral.

    McD, the ST isn't about ancient prophecies and bloodlines of destiny like the PT was.

    I loved the PT, and really enjoyed the idea of bringing the Force into balance and seeing how Anakin pulled it off. But that story's been told. The ST is going a different way. If the OT was about heroism and the PT was about destiny, then the ST is about choices.

    Kylo Ren would have inherited the Falcon, Vader's lightsaber, Chewbacca's companionship, Han's and Leia's final parental affection, and the ancient Jedi texts if the ST was about bloodlines. Instead Rey got all of those things. She didn't even try to get them, they just came to her. Kylo tried his hardest to get them and lost them all to Rey, a complete nobody. The lesson is that bloodlines don't count nearly as much as the choices each character makes.

    This is Star Wars and still a main sequence trilogy about Skywalkers, not a separate trilogy.

    The will of the Cosmic Force was manifested in creation of Anakin.

    Rey random is destruction and trashing of the will of the Force, of its decision of creation of Anakin .

    There is will of a man, and choice of a man, and there is will of the Force, and choice of the Force.

    There is error of a man, should there be error of the Force to?

    If the man is weak, should the Force be weak as man?

    Anakin was chosen, by the will of the Force, and his son Luke was also chosen (said so in "rebels").

    And now this line dies in missery...because man has failed and thus Force has failed to bring true chosen one?

    Because personal choces and weaknesses are greater than the will of the Force ?

    Because randomness and chaos is true Lord of the Universe, not the Force?

    Did Force failed with Skywalkers, so a randomnes must took over the game now?

    Thats trashing of the Force, and of Skywalker saga,and by this of Star Wars as we knew them.

    Rey should be final chapter in the will of the Force that started with the creation of Anakin, and resulted in the Last Skywalker.

    Rey's story should show the magnificence of the ways the Force can be victorious designer of the history, and has a will greater than the man, instead of polithicaly "correct" ode to randomness( randomnes which ultimately fails to explain unseen powers of random person Rey -by the way.)

    Rey shuld be Skywalker that will write the last word in this epic.

    My favourite theory pre TLJ was Rey Kenobi, my second was Rey Random. I am happy with the reveal that Rey is random (obviously not as happy as Rey Kenobi, but oh well). As a fan of Rey Random, i do not believe that Rey random = Reylo. I am not a fan of Reylo either (at least not a romantic version of Reylo, a mutual understanding i believe is the way to go, as seen in TLJ there was nothing romantic about their relationship, it was only growing to understand each other better).

    I'm sure we will get Rey Random and this just leaves me with not caring for this character, especially how she was handled in TLJ. This movie made me reject her completely. :(

    Desert bride born random but whataya know not with random destiny but predestined to fix last patricidal Skywalker of the failed Skywalker /Solo family.(which would be sole cheapest reason why would she be made lonely forgiving random girl against a patricidal but good
    looking,mass murderer).

    Vomit.

    My DVDs,and entire memorabilia would go into trash and later years of my life would be Star Wars free.

    Maybe for good...who knows....

    Still, 2 years to that end,for now I refuse to believe.

    So Rey Skywalker would make you care, even if nothing else in her character changes? Come on, it's just a name. She can be a Skywalker by spirit. Names don't make people!

    It is my oppinion and for me family is much more important. No problem if you disagree and prefer a random. For me Star Wars was always about family, that's why I came into this franchise and not for big explosions, spaceships or blaster duels.
