Star Wars: The Force Awakens holds many secrets and hinting at the past and future of the franchise. One mystery that remains unsolved, however, is Rey's parentage. Who are Rey's parents? Were they random Jedi studying under Luke Skywalker? Is Luke the father? Is Obi-Wan involved somehow?

Well, better take out your Blu-ray of The Force Awakens because, according to Rey herself, , the answer is right in the movie itself.

During an interview with Time Out for her documentary The Eagle Huntress, Ridley was asked if she would feel relieved once Episode VIII lifted the veil off the mystery that is her parents. The actress gave this intriguing answer:

"I thought a lot was answered in 'The Force Awakens'. Then after the screening I went for a drink with my agent and everyone, and we were chatting away and I realized that, oh, in their minds it’s not answered at all!"

She continued to tease us by saying

"I think curiosity is a wonderful thing. And I do find it quite funny that people keep asking about it. Just yesterday a guy asked to take a picture with me, and went, 'Is Luke your Dad?' And I was like, 'Chill out, you’ll see!'"

As time went on after was released, I began to speculate that her parents would be individuals we had never seen before in the Star Wars universe. But, when asked about whether she was excited to see audiences with their jaws on the floor by the reveal, Daisy gave us another heart-stopper:

"I'd love to see the look on people's faces. But with answers come more questions, and there's definitely going to be enough to keep people going for another two years!"

This answer got me thinking about earlier this year, when a portrait of Rey came out, naming her "Rey Skywalker." It could have been a mistake on the artist's part or simply 's subtle way to tease us hungry fans, but Daisy's comments do make it seem as if her parents have already been seen in the universe.

One thing's for sure, though. After this, there will be a lot of fans going through the film trying to find the answer. Will anyone be able to do it before Episode VIII comes out?
