SPOILERS: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Director Says The Truth About Rey's Parents Is Actually "Still Open"

Star Wars: The Last Jedi definitely seemed to put the mystery surrounding Rey's parentage to bed for good, but director Rian Johnson now suggests that there could be more to the story. Take a look...

In one of the most divisive moments of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren reveals the truth about Rey's parents: they were drunks who sold her off, and are now laying dead in a pauper's grave somewhere.

Not exactly what fans were hoping to hear, but it did finally give us a definitive answer after all of the theories and speculation... or did it?

Rian Johnson has previously stated that, as far as he's concerned, Kylo was not lying (Rey did seem to know the truth herself, after all) - but that doesn't mean that Episode IX won't take things in another direction. Here's what the director had to say on the matter during an interview with The Huffington Post:


"Anything’s still open, and I’m not writing the next film. [J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio] are doing it. 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. But for me, dramatically, that’s why that reveal at that moment made sense."

What do you guys thunk? Were you satisfied with the reveal, or would you like to see the mystery reopened in Episode IX? Sound off below.
