New Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker images released

We're into the final stretch before the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the film that will finally bring the Skywalker Saga to a close, and we're about to get buried under a deluge of SW-related content everywhere we turn.

Over at EW today, a new article has not long popped up interviewing the cast along with the release of a batch of new photos from the film. Of course, fans will be analysing every word spoken by the stars and director hoping to gleam any clues and hints about what's about to go down in film number nine.

In the EW piece, Daisy Ridley does talk about the hotly debated lineage of Rey, saying: “The parents thing is not satisfied — for her and for the audience. That’s something she’s still trying to figure out — where does she come from?” She went on to say: “It’s not that she doesn’t believe it, but she feels there’s more to the story. And she needs to figure out what’s come before so she can figure out what to do next…”

Whether or not J.J. Abrams will retcon the idea planted by Rian Johnson in The Last Jedi, or continue with the same idea remains to be seen. We don't have long to wait as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in UK on December 19 and a day later in the US.
