When Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters worldwide on December 15, actress Daisy Ridley will reprise her role as the mysteriously powerful in the Force, Rey, whose parentage and past is just as much or even greater a mystery.
Ridley recently spoke with Yahoo Japan regarding her role in the film and seemed to reveal a couple of neat secrets about her character, including Rey’s relationship to Luke Skywalker. You’ll have to forgive us, as we’re taking our quotes from Google translate, so it may seem a bit wonky.
Ridley seems to confirm the answer to whether or not Luke is Rey’s father will, in fact, be revealed in The Last Jedi, an answer fans thought they might not get until Episode IX.

"Whatever the answer is, I hope everyone will enjoy that moment. I knew the answer from a few years ago, but the story that Ryan Johnson co-authored was so wonderful as I can not imagine myself, honestly I was very moved."
If Luke is actually revealed to be Rey’s father, the pay-off in the theater for fans will be too emotionally immense to record. As for the use of lightsabers in The Last Jedi, Ridley says there will be much more than in The Force Awakens.
"It will be a fair amount. I adjusted to try to overcome my limit both physically and mentally. When I always stop it, I feel like I can go two more times. I feel I was able to become stronger with my own will."
Regardless of who Rey’s parents actually are, I’m sure that when the answer will be revealed, the wait will be more than worth it.
