Star Wars: The Last Jedi took the story in unexpected directions (to the chagrin of some), and it left some questions unanswered. Is Finn a Jedi? (Probably not.) Was Han Solo a dumbass? (Possibly.) Will Carrie Fisher’s scenes just be interview outtakes of her holding her dog Gary and dropping F-bombs? (We hope so.)

Um, anyway, another long-running question is, who are Rey’s parents? The Force Awakens set it up like it would be a huge reveal, only for The Last Jedi to suggest that masters of the force can come from humble beginnings, like the broom-moving slave kid on Canto Bight and Rey, the purported daughter of junk traders. But were Rey’s parents really who Kylo Ren claimed? (“They were filthy junk traders. Sold you off for drinking money. They’re dead in a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert. You come from nothing. You’re nothing. But not to me.”)
