The Last Jedi will hit theaters in December and Rey’s backstory – including her parentage – has been a huge talking point.
Warning – potential spoilers ahead.
Expert Mike Zeroh said: “Her connection tot he Force will be astronomical and will be a shocking twist.
“The Last Jedi will be filled with twists and turns. Rey’s connection to the Force will be among them.
“We did learn a number of months ago… there will be a key scene in this film where Luke Skywalker sits Rey down and explains her connection to the Force, and honestly what could come of that is a lot of things.
“It could explain who her parents are, what they’re capable of, and I think it could also tell us where Rey is going and her path.
“But her connection to the Force will be one of the shocking twists in this film.”
Daisy Ridley, who plays the character, had previously spoken of the number of surprises in the new movie.
“Everyone talks about how different the direction is to what people may have been expecting,” she said to Access Hollywood.
“That’s great, and a massive blessing from having three different writers and directors for the different films.
“People have an opinion of where they want it to go. Everyone has an expectation.
“Some are going to be fulfilled and some not. The surprise will be wonderful.”
