Stop the press!
Might there have been other plans for Rey’s parentage; plans altered by The Last Jedi?
Speaking of The Force Awakens, actor Simon Pegg told the Happy Sad Confused podcast, “I know what J.J. kind of intended – at least what was sort of being chucked around.
“That’s kind of been undone. Slightly. By the last one.
“I don’t know. I DON’T KNOW,” exclaimed Pegg — who suddenly sounded like he might wish to have the previous statement back — before adding that his character, “Unkar Plutt,” was the scavenger’s actual father.
So, is Rey “somebody” or “nobody”? You be the judge…
BTW: The entire podcast is excellent, but the piece about The Force Awakens/The Last Jedi may be found around 37: 30. JB
