Rian Johnson says Rey’s Parents Is Actually ‘Still Open’
quote:

In an interview with HuffPost, director Rian Johnson reflected on the reveal, explaining that it was “the most difficult thing dramatically for Rey in this movie to hear.”

“The easy thing would be, ‘Yes, your parents are so and so and here’s your place in the world. There you go.’ The hardest thing she could hear would be [...] ‘No, you’re not going to get the answer. This is not going to define you. You’re going to have to find your own place in this world. Kylo is going to use that even as leverage to try and make you feel insecure, and you’re going to have to stand on your own two feet.

Anything’s still open, and I’m not writing the next film. [J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio] are doing it,” he said.

She’s obviously the reincarnation of the force ala Aang.

If you’ve seen the Last Airbender, it makes the cave scene pretty clear and explains her “powers”

Really.....because the way he just nonchalantly revealed it made it seem it was easier than that.

re: Rian Johnson says Rey’s Parents Is Actually ‘Still Open’
this is exactly the type of fake intellectualism that so may writers were praising

irrationally deconstructing stuff just to do it is silly because it has no meaning by the very nature of the deconstruction

however, you add in even more support of your work being devoid of any value when you pussy out of that deconstruction

People really seem to not even like it, they just say they like it to spite the haters.

It was pretty obvious Kylo was just Giving the best answer to persuade her at that moment. He doesn't know anything about her parents, neither does Rey.

Hilarious watching posters melt from one of the oldest tricks in storytelling.

People didn't want to believe Vader was Luke's father


We are told by 2 people with force powers, maz and kylo, rey knows the truth about her parents just doesn't want to accept it.

Obviously this can be changed. I think they have changed rey's origins several times since 2013.


As of this moment though she is no one.

Maz told her she, rey herself, knew the people she was waiting for, her parents, weren't coming back. But someone could, luke.


The whole mirror scene with rey was to tell her all that mattered was her. She was basically the person that raised herself. She isn't defined by where she came from, or who, but where she is going.


Kylo makes rey say the truth about her parents. Then lays it on thick after that.


They can change it. It will be hard timeline wise for Luke to be her father. Or for her to be a solo.




I'm telling you from development in late 2012 to 2014 she has been obi wan's decendent, she has been a solo, and now she is no one. That's the way Disney decided to role with it. As I said, obviously it could change but I doubt it

For all of TLJ’s flaws this “reveal” was executed well with the pit and Kylo lying. I just wish we would have gotten more development and conflict from Rey as a result of this revelation than was let on on screen. Have her display extreme internal conflict and temptations towards the dark side. Have her join hands with Kylo in the throne room. There was no follow through at all with the “reveal.”

That’s what I assumed too.

Yeah, but even when I first watched it I thought it could still be an open question. Slightly open, for a future writer to explore.

Another thing Rian shat all over. To Rey he is just a crazy bitter old guy she spent like 3 days with. He does nothing mesmerizing and the only advice he gives her is basically suicide.
