Why Rey's Family History May Not Be That Important In The Last Jedi, According To Daisy Ridley

Written by 

It's hard to believe, but it's been almost two years since J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens hit theaters, and started a new trilogy of films. The Force Awakens introduced a new trio of protagonists to join the OG heroes, and the biggest breakout hit was the Force sensitive scavenger Rey.

Rey's parents left her on Jakku at an early age, making the subject of her parentage a major source of discussion following the film's release. While The Last Jedi will likely explore more of Rey's backstory, actress Daisy Ridley doesn't think it actually matters that much in the long run. Rey is in the Resistance for the long haul, whether or not she finds out her parents.

You can always look for answers and that doesn't mean that the rest of your life is so easy. It's not like, oh, I know who my parents are so now everything falls into shape, especially in the Star Wars world.

Days Ridley's statement to EW makes perfect sense. Even if Rey somehow reunites with one or both of her parents, it's not going to change who the character is. Her issues of abandonment and her inherent tenacity aren't going anywhere.
