The Last Jedi: Daisy Ridley Debunks One Fan Theory

Rey's origins are easily the most intriguing aspects of this month's Star Wars: The Last Jedi since the second film of the new trilogy might finally reveal why her connection to The Force is already this strong. In The Force Awakens, she was already able to do the Jedi mind trick and pick up a Lightsaber from afar, all of which took some training from Luke. Numerous fan theories have since been made regarding Rey's origin and The Last Jedi will likely debunk a number of them.

Funnily enough, Daisy Ridley, the actress portraying Rey, has already debunked one theory.

During a press junket with Screen Rant, Ridley confirmed that Rey was not Immaculately Conceived, so she won't be Star Wars Jesus. It's definitely one of the more ridiculous theories out there since most of them just wonder if she is the daughter of Luke Skywalker or Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ridley admitted that this was the only theory she's read thus far, so it looks like the other ones still have a chance of coming true.

Screen Rant: Have you ever read a fan theory that has been right about your character?
Daisy Ridley: No.
Screen Rant: Really? Because the big question is about who are Rey's parents, right?
Daisy Ridley: I mean, I've read a fan theory about Immaculate Conception. In fact, that was the only one that I read because someone directed me toward it and I was like you should get to work. Immaculate Conception. Then someone told me that I was actually Snoke or something or other, and it was time travel and I do think it's hilarious that there's this like great character and everyone was trying to attribute it to another character.
Screen Rant: Yeah. Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Daisy Ridley: Oh, what? That I'm Obi-Wan Kenobi? No, I heard about Snoke.
Screen Rant: No, that you are Ben Kenobi's granddaughter is another theory.

Daisy Ridley: Oh. Oh. Oh. I dunno. The only one I read is about Immaculate Conception so technically I've never read a real one.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
