Since we are close to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (December 16th, 2016) and the first anniversary of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (December 18th), I want to tackle a point of strong discussions in this new era of Star Wars: Rey’s parents.
During this year many discussed and tried to guess who are the parents of Rey: some says she is the daughter of Luke, other say Obi Wan is the father/grandfather and other speculate she is the descendant of Palpatine.
To me this question is second to another question that must be answered first: is she really the daughter of some famous Force sensitive??? Not necessarily since Force sensitives can frequently come from non Force sensitive parents.
Disclaimer: while I am very passionate about Star Wars, I don’t claim to be an expert of its lore; the following points are just my personal opinions on elements I personally noticed; on top of that, this article is meant to be just a personal “thinking out loud” and not a formal treatise on the subject. Therefore be mindful if you find parts that you don’t agree with or error/missing information (and since I am not a professional writer, the fact that some paragraph is a little bit … “convoluted”).
