“Star Wars 8” is set to reveal that Rey is the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker. This, the movie’s leaked script seems to suggest. Could the “Force Awakens” heroine really be Darth Vader in her past life?
“Rey is the reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker,” LouEvilOne claimed. According to the said Redditor, Luke Skywalker would make the discovery. “Star Wars 8” will find Luke travelling to his hiding place “to better understand how the [reincarnation] process works.” There, he would learn that “the spirit of the chosen one is reincarnated by the Force every time the universe is thrown out of balance.”
According to LouEvilOne, this theory might just explain why Rey is “so crazy powerful” with the Force. “Anakin blew up the Trade Federation donut ship by himself when he was like 8 years old,” he explained.
The Redditor also claims that Episode 8 will be called “Echoes of the Dark Side.” However, these bits of info is yet to be confirmed. The “Star Wars” franchise is known for its many shocking plot twists. If proven true, Rey as Darth Vader’s reincarnation would surely be a huge plot twist.
Meanwhile, “The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams recently debunked a theory regarding Rey’s parents. “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.”
Who are Rey’s parents? Is she really the reincarnation of Darth Vader? Fans will have to wait for Episode 8’s release to find out. “Star Wars: Episode 8” is set to hit the big screen on December 15, 2017.
