J.J. Abrams gives hint on Rey’s parents in Star Wars

We all know that there has been a massive amount of talking regarding who Rey’s parents are in new Star Wars movies. With her being a Jedi and being able to find Luke, most began to assume or at least hope that her father is Luke. Well, if you are one of those people, then I’m sorry to tell you that that’s not true! And J.J. Abrams has just confirmed it.

“Rey’s parents are not in Episode VII. So I can’t possibly at this moment tell you who they are,” says Abrams at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival this past Friday.

That certainly crosses off Luke, as well as many other potential parents, off the list!

I’m aware that most fans have been speculating whether or not Luke was her father or not, I’m so happy that it isn’t! (Am I the only one?) What are your thoughts and opinions on this? Were you hoping that the story continued on with the Skywalker family? Or are you happy that we’re branching off a bit?
