Although fans still have to wait until 2019 to see “Star Wars: Episode 9,” they are now wondering what the next episode’s storyline would be. In fact, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” has left some loose ends that viewers are expecting to be answered in the next movie installment.

Warning: major spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk. Reports by Digital Spy and Hidden Remote provided most of the information used in this post.

Luke’s possible return

Before Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) died or disappeared, he implied that Rey (Daisy Ridley) would be the next Jedi. “I will not be the last Jedi,” he said while facing Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

With that, Rey would be the leading Jedi in “Star Wars: Episode 9.” However, it is now a big question who would be her trainer now that Luke is gone. This leads to a number of rumors that Mark Hamill will return in “Episode 9,” although it is not yet confirmed if Luke will be back as a force ghost.

Rey and Luke’s connection

Talking about Rey, the aspiring Jedi from “nowhere” still got no answers about her parentage. To recall, the moment she fell into the dark pit and saw multiple versions of herself, she saw a mirror and asked who her parents are.

The mirror revealed two reflections, so Rey thought she would be seeing her real parents. But the reflections later transformed into one, revealing her own identity. This scene was being compared to Luke’s sequence in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back,” in which he saw himself as Darth Vader, hinting their parental relationship.

With that, there are rampant theories that Luke might be Rey’s real father, in spite of Kylo Ren telling her that her parents are just nobodies.

Rey’s parentage

In an interview with Huffington Post, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson revealed that Rey’s parentage might still be revealed in “Star Wars: Episode 9.”

“Anything’s still open,” he said. However, it will be not up to him as “Star Wars: Episode 9” would be directed by J.J. Abrams and written by the “Argo” award-winning screenwriter, Chris Terrio.

“With all of these movies, Obi-Wan’s whole speech about a certain point of view always applies, so I think that you have to always think about the context of how information is given,” Johnson explained. The 44-year-old director also revealed that Rey’s life would be on its hardest point if she would learn the big twist about her parentage - like when Luke found out that his father is Darth Vader – in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

So, it would be easier for her to know that her parents are just nobodies from Jakku, and it is just her place in “Star Wars” world. Also, it would be hard for her not to have an answer about her real origin that Kylo Ren might use against her.

Lucasfilm has yet to reveal the official title of “Star Wars: Episode 9,” but it is set to be released on December 20, 2019.
