There are only a few days left before the world is treated to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Critics are raving about the movie on social media and are understandably avoiding spoilery language like it's the sands of Tatooine (it's rough and coarse and it gets everywhere). That means most fans will have to wait to learn the possible answer to Rey's parentage, the single biggest mystery in Star Wars right now. Internet theorists have been trying to crack this nut for two years now, with tons of theories circulated about Rey's origins. There's a strong possibility that the answer will finally be revealed in The Last Jedi, so let's take stock and look at all the possible answers.

I don't think that Rey (Daisy Ridley) needs to be connected to a past character for her origin to be important, but part of the fun of fan theories are the dots (no matter how thin) that people connect to reach their conclusions. Some make a lot of sense. Others not so much. These are all the biggest theories about Rey's parents that you need to know before seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Just for the sake of caution, I'm throwing up a SPOILER WARNING just in case any of these actually ends up being true. At the moment, these are just theories.

Luke Skywalker

She's Luke Skywalker's Daughter

The single most obvious and strongest theory is that Rey is the daughter of Luke Skywalker. Rey's connection to his lightsaber, her exile on a desert planet, her natural skills as a pilot, and her strong connection to the Force all mirror Luke pretty closely. It's entirely plausible that Luke fathered a child in the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and then hid that child on Jakku to keep her safe from his enemies. However, this is all fairly predictable, and The Last Jedi is apparently filled with surprises. Plus, we don't exactly have much of an emotional connection to Luke impregnating a character we've never seen or met.
