At the point when we initially met Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there was a lot of riddle encompassing exactly what her identity was. Flashbacks gave her family abandoning her on Jakku, and afterward there was the way that she had the option to yield the Force with extraordinary capacity and quality. Promptly, fans started guessing: would she say she was covertly a Skywalker? Obviously, presently we know the appropriate response: No. She wasn’t. She was really a Palpatine – a contort that despite everything leaves a terrible preference for my mouth. Yet, was that consistently the arrangement? There are a lot of signs that the new Star Wars set of three was amassed a tiny bit at a time, without a reasonable guide showing where the story would go. Be that as it may, as indicated by the new craftsmanship book The Art Of Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker, there was unquestionably some early conversation about Rey’s ancestry.
In the as of late discharged Rise of Skywalker craftsmanship book there’s a statement from 2014 from LucasFilm Story Group part Pablo Hidalgo that grabbed our attention:
“I like the possibility that she will be our Skywalker, yet she’s not a Skywalker. At that point, for our purposes, ‘the Skywalker’ is actually an illustration. It doesn’t need to be something that is straightforwardly associated by blood.”
The statement is alluding to Daisy Ridley’s Rey, and brings up a couple of issues. Is this demonstrating everybody knew from the hop that Rey could never be associated by blood to Luke and Leia? Assuming this is the case, does that show they despite everything realised that Rey would take up the Skywalker name before the finish of the adventure? Is it safe to say that she was continually going to be a Palpatine? Or then again was that a very late curve concocted by J.J. Abrams when he came back to the arrangement after The Last Jedi?
You can peruse this statement any way you’d like. To me, it seems like the choice was made at an opportune time that Rey was a sub/surrogate for Luke, since she’s the principle character of the film. All things considered, I do believe it’s intriguing that before The Force Awakens even opened, the choice was made to not have Rey be associated by blood to the Skywalker ancestry. That successfully implies each one of those fan speculations were 100% off base from the hop.
All things considered, the possibility that the Skywalker name turns into an allegory – and something that is not legitimately associated by blood – fits into the inevitable end to the arrangement, where Rey relinquishes the Palpatine bloodline for good and receives the Skywalker name. Truth be told, it nearly makes it sound like there was an unmistakable arrangement for how the set of three would end from the earliest starting point.
In any case, that is still difficult to acknowledge. The wild irregularity in the storyline from Force Awakens through The Rise of Skywalker doubtlessly proposes that the set of three was deficient with regards to a through-line. Further entangling issues was the dismissal of Colin Trevorrow and (a large portion of) Derek Connolly’s unique content for Episode IX, titled Duel of the Fates.
At last, the main concern is by all accounts that while the direction of the new Star Wars set of three changed after some time, Rey was never planned to be a Skywalker as it so happens. What’s more, truly, that is fine! It’s simply really awful they wound up making her a Palpatine at last.
