    Welcome back to ScreenRant! Quick warning: There will be major spoiler and rumor discussions for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We’re talking some pretty big stuff. Possible plot twists -- the movie ending -- and a deep dive into the world of midi-chlorians. Still here? Good! Let’s go!

    In The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, Rey has not only served as our main protagonist, but brought on a lot of confusion along the way. Is she a secret Skywalker? Why were her parents nobodies? Was Kylo Ren lying? Well, thanks to some plot leaks and new trailer footage from The Rise of Skywalker, we may finally have some answers as to why Rey has no parents and how the character is truly connected to Anakin and the whole Skywalker family. After the Force Awakens was released, Star Wars fans were left with one major question: who were Rey’s parents?

    And now with the release of The Rise of Skywalker, we may finally learn why Rey’s were not revealed in The Last Jedi. The reason is she has none. Until the movie comes out, we will not have all of the details, but we can break things down and branch out to cover all of the different options. No matter which path we go down, they all lead to the Dark Side -- specifically with Palpatine. And some of the huge footage released at the D23 expo helps build on this theory. What accumulates to about two seconds of footage has some huge implications. We see Rey wearing one of the evil hooded cloaks and holding a red dual-bladed lightsaber. The shot seemingly confirms that Rey’s dedication to the side of good may have only been temporary until Palpatine entered the picture.

    Let’s dive head first into the swamps of the Dagobah and unravel this mystery!
