In other “Star Wars 8” news, readers might be shocked by the latest revelation that Rey is the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker. Reddit user LouEvilOne leaked the information, saying that the heroine could be Darth Vader.
The claims were supported, stating that Luke Skywalker will find out about it first, as the leaked script stated that the movie will reveal his hiding place to better understand the process of reincarnation. However, film director J.J. Abrams debunked the claims.
“Rey’s parents are not in Episode 7. So I can’t possibly say in this moment who they are,” Abrams told Entertainment Weekly. “But I will say it is something that Rey thinks about, too.”
Aside from the leaked script, the user also wrote that “Star Wars 8” will be allegedly entitled “Echoes of the Dark Side.” Well, the mystery of “Star Wars 8” will unfold when the movie hits the big screen on December 15, 2017.
