JJ Abrams Reveals A Clue About the Identity of Rey's Parents (UPDATED!)

UPDATEEntertainment Weekly caught up with Abrams, where he clarified his comments.  Abrams told EW, "What I meant was that she doesn’t discover them in Episode VII. Not that they may not already be in her world".  So she could still be Luke's daughter...

ORIGINAL STORY:
One of the big questions about the sequel trilogy is the identity of Rey's parents.  It's the big question fans were left wondering after seeing The Force Awakens, and it's one that likely won't be answered until Episode IX.  One of the few people who knows the answer is The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams, and he dropped a hint about their identities during an interview at the Tribeca film festival.  Abrams was being interviewed on stage by comedian Chris Rock when a young fan asked the question, "Who are Rey's parents?"  Check out the video of Abrams answering below,


Abrams answer of "Rey's parents are not in Episode VII", seems to shoot down many of the theories about her lineage.  A popular theory among fans was that she is Luke Skywalker's daughter and this answer from Abrams seems to put an end to that theory.  The question remains, however, who are they and have we met them before?
