Star Wars: Is Luke Skywalker Rey’s Father?

Ever since The Force Awakens hit theaters in December 2015, there have been a few huge questions fans of the series have been asking themselves. Who is Supreme Leader Snoke? Why did Luke Skywalker disappear? And, perhaps the most divisive: who are Rey’s parents?

Probably the biggest fan theory is that Rey is at least somehow related to Luke, if not his daughter. The story clearly pointed to Rey having some connection to the Skywalkers during The Force Awakens, specifically when she was called to Luke’s lightsaber at Maz Kanata’s bar. Add to that her Force sensitivity and it’s hard to just simply tell fans “no,” despite J.J. Abrams’ insistence.

Rey being Luke’s daughter is currently being listed at +225 at online book Bovada. Rey being fathered by anyone aside from Luke is coming back at -350.

Of course, there are plenty of other theories out there on the internet. One of the bigger ones is that Rey is a Kenobi. Aside from sharing some sensory similarities (clothing, accents, etc.), Rey also hears the voices of Obi-Wan when she picks up Luke’s lightsaber. If The Force Awakens is virtually a retelling of A New Hope, Rey fighting Kylo Ren would mirror Obi-Wan and Darth Vader’s battle.

There are other ridiculous theories out there – I would suggest you choose not to rot your mind on the deep annals of Reddit seeking them out. Fans will try their hardest to uncover this mystery until The Last Jedi comes out but the safe bet right now is that Rey is connected to someone in the Star Wars universe we already know.

Will Luke Skywalker Be Identified As REy's Father?

Odds as of October 10 at Bovada
