WATCH: New trailer and poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi as Adam Driver drops what could be a MASSIVE spoiler about Rey

October 31st, 2017 by Marc Comments

With Star Wars: The Last Jedi merely weeks away now, we’re in the final stretch now and with the story still well under wraps we’re alway sleeping our eyes and ears open (can you open your ears?) and tonight we have some cook stuff.

Ok, so first of all we have an international trailer and poster (above and below) that firmly puts the focus on the story of Daisy Ridley’s Rey.

Next, keeping with Rey, it seems that Kylo Ren himself, Adam Driver, may have given away some details about just who exactly Rey is in the grand scheme of things.

This is SPOILER territory folks so if you don’t want to know skip the next coupe of paragraphs:

Speaking to GQ Magazine, Driver said the following:

“I remember the initial conversations about having things ‘skinned’, peeling away layers to evolve into other people, and the person Kylo’s pretending to be on the outside is not who he is. He’s a vulnerable kid who doesn’t know where to put his energy, but when he puts his mask on, suddenly, he’s playing a role. J.J. had that idea initially and I think Rian took it to the next level [in The Last Jedi]. You have, also, the hidden identity of this princess who’s hiding who she really is so she can survive and Kylo Ren and her hiding behind these artifices.”

Wait, hold on… Rey is a princess?! If this is indeed true then we’d have to imagine that Rey is the daughter of Leia Organa-Solo. And if this is true, then she is the sister of Kylo Ren, or Ben Solo as he was originally named by his parents.


Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley as Rey, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Amilyn Holdo, Benicio Del Toro as DJ, and Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
