    STAR WARS: Daisy Ridley Confirms There Were Plans For Rey To Be Related To Obi-Wan Kenobi

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker 's big twist with Rey was not well-received, with the reveal that she's the daughter of a failed Emperor Palpatine clone (making her the iconic villain's daughter and grandaughter) landing with a thud for most fans. Her later decision to dub herself "Rey Skywalker" also failed to hit the mark, but there were once very different plans in place for the character.

    Rey Kenobi? That might have been the true parentage of Rey revealed in Star Wars: Episode IX , according to Daisy Ridley , who revealed that the Star Wars teams toyed with several ideas for Rey's origins before settling on making her the granddaughter of Emperor Palpatine.
