Yesterday JJ Abrams lit the internet on fire when he claimed that Rey’s parents weren’t in The Force Awakens.
Today a new comment has come out to completely invalidate his previous comment. EW caught up with JJ Abrams right after he made the internet explode by suggesting that Rey wasn’t a Skywalker or Solo and he said:
â€œWhat I meant was that she doesnâ€™t discover them in Episode VII. Not that they may not already be in her world”
So now you’re free to continue to speculate on whether or not Rey is a Skywalker, Solo, Palpatine, or Binks as much as you want until Episode VIII comes out in December of 2017.
