As Star Wars season approaches, more and more compelling fan theories are being discussed. After Star Wars the Force Awakens, fans were left with many questions surrounding the new characters and their origins. Now that the trailers have been released for this December’s Star Wars, hardcore fans are pulling facts from whatever source they can to piece together a theory. After coming up with a theory, fans will find it exciting to find out whether they were correct or not when the movie hits theatres. With most of the theories covering characters Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Rey, and Snoke, there are a lot of possibilities for how the story could play out.

The first, and most questioned theories revolve around the origin of Rey, the story’s new character. As one of the only characters alive in the universe to use the force, there are only a couple options of who her parents are. Theorists believe that either Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, or Obi Wan Kenobi are the father of Rey, with the mother unknown as of now. according to The Film Theorists and The Ranker, The character most likely to be Rey’s father is Han Solo. This is backed up by the fact that Rey may have received her ability to use the force from Han Solo’s wife Leia. Star Wars fan Max Johnson commented on this theory, “I would be surprised if Han Solo wasn’t Rey’s father, there is too much evidence for this theory.”

After theorizing about Rey, fans wondered what correlation Luke Skywalker had to the title of the film. As a main character throughout the series, Luke seems to be taking a dark turn from what can be seen in the trailers. Fans theorize that Luke may actually be a villain in the film. In a teaser for the movie, Luke explains that, “It is time for the Jedi to end.” fans believe that, along with the title, that Luke may join the dark side and that Rey will be the Last Jedi.

With so many unanswered questions, we can only wait until December to find out the truth as we get closer and closer to the end of the Star Wars story. Although there are a few plausible theories out there, the number of longshot theories greatly outnumbers them. While fans continue to ponder what path the story will take, there is no changing what the film crew has in store for viewers, and we can only hope that the path they take is a surprising one.
