The first question that came to pretty much everyone's mind after The Force Awakens was, "Who are Rey's parents?" And seemingly everyone has a different answer. Star Wars fan theories assert everything from Jar Jar Binks being a Sith Lord to Boba Fett being Supreme Leader Snoke (though there are better theories revolving around The Last Jedi), so there are of course many hypotheses about Rey's origins.

Rey will be training with Luke in The Last Jedi, but the nature of their relationship is far from straightforward. She could be his daughter, or his niece, or the reincarnation of his mentor or father. There are a staggering number of possibilities, so let's dive into all of them.

Here are a bunch of fan theories about Rey from Star Wars, and from whom (or what) she may descend.
