It is no sudden that Rey has such preternatural Force powers, as per Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker writer-director J.J. Abrams. Four years post making her grand launch as the Jakku scavenger-turned Jedi in being trained; Daisy Ridley will replay her role as Rey for the third time in upcoming month’s The Rise of Skywalker.
Along with this, serving as a conclusion to the trilogy she and Abrams assisted kick off with 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Rise of Skywalker will wrap up the larger Skywalker Saga post nine movies launched across forty-two years. For the huge part, though, The Rise of Skywalker is thought to focus on bringing the series trilogy’s tale to a close and, in the process, giving a fitting payoff to its heroes’ adventure so far.
In Rey’s part, that implies not only providing the matter of her parents to rest at the verge, but also going through her greater purpose in the universe, and what the destiny holds for her.
There is also the ongoing question surrounding her ability to utilize the Force and get new skills exceptionally fast – a matter Abrams says has been deliberately left unanswered, up to this part.
In a larger interview with Rolling Stone regarding a variety of Star Wars-related topics, Abrams was questioned about Rey and how she not only experiences gifted in the types of the Force, but seems to things faster than either Anakin or Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies before her time. Naturally, Abrams was comfortable in his answer, but made it proper this was done on purpose:
Yeah, spooky, right? [Smiles] It is a fair point. It is not an accident.
There is a reasonable chance (okay, a more than reasonable one) The Rise of Skywalker will launch something very important regarding Rey’s past if it includes her parents or not.
