The director of Star Wars Episode IX Colin Trevorrow spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the Golden Globes red carpet about one of the big mysteries of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey's parentage. Trevorrow promised fans who were theorizing about who Rey's parents are that there will be a satisfying conclusion to the mystery at some point during the rest of the trilogy. Check it out below,
If you don't want to watch the video, Trevorrow said,
“I’ve seen all of the theories… What I do know is that we’re going to make sure that that answer is deeply and profoundly satisfying, because Rey is a character that is important in this universe, not just in the context of The Force Awakens but in the entire galaxy, and she deserves it. So we’ll make sure that that answer is something that feels like it was—it’s something that happened a long time ago [in a galaxy] far, far away, we’re just telling you what happened.”
Trevorrow also touched on how he's approaching Episode IX, saying,
"[Episode IX] is something that needs to honor a story that's been told over a period of 40 years. I don't want to ignore any of it, and I respect all of it. It's something I think the fan base is going to embrace."
“By the time we get to Episode IX, I look at that movie as one movie, as three movies, as six movies, and as nine movies. It’s something that needs to honor a story that has been told over a period of 40 years… Star Wars is a belief system, it’s not just a story and it’s not just a movie, and it’s something I take very seriously.”
Trevorrow also touched on the petition to bring back George Lucas and how he is collaborating with Episode VIII director. You can check that out here.
