STAR WARS: It Sounds Like J.J. Abrams Definitely Had A Much Different Idea For Rey's Parentage

Rian Johnson made the controversial decision in The Last Jedi to reveal that Rey's parents were complete nobodies but comments from Simon Pegg point to J.J. Abrams having something different in mind...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was controversial for a lot of different reasons and while there's no denying that Rian Johnson delivered an awesome entry into the saga, the vast majority of fans are hoping that J.J. Abrams will be able to put the franchise back on track with Episode IX and deliver a fitting conclusion to this trilogy. However, will the filmmaker be able to undo some of Johnson's decisions?

After all, while Abrams can still use the Knights of Ren in some way, Supreme Leader Snoke has been taken off the table (as has any potentially major reveals about his backstory), while Rey's parents have been outed as nobodies who sold their daughter for drinking money. That's one twist which could still be changed, though, and based on remarks from Abrams' friend Simon Pegg, it definitely sounds like the director had something different in mind when he was working on 2015's The Force Awakens

Whether or not Abrams now decides to delve into Rey's parentage remains to be seen but it almost feels like a moot point at this stage and there are plenty of other plot holes he needs to touch on, including Leia's whereabouts, the aforementioned Knights, and how this story is going to wrap up. 

What do you guys think about Rey's real parents possibly being revealed in Star Wars Episode IX? Should it be left alone or is it up to Abrams to fix this twist? Let us know your thoughts below.
