From Slashfilm - November 29, 2017

Ever sinceStar Wars: The Force Awakens decided to keep the identity of Reys missing parents a secret, fans have been wondering just who the heck these unseen characters are. Are they pre-established characters within the ongoingStar Wars saga, or are they individuals we have yet to meet? A new interview with the cast and crew ofStar Wars: The Last Jedi reveals were one step closer to learning the identity of Reys parents, and curiously enough, the answer might be more obvious than any of us thought.
