Abrams Knows Who Rey's Parents Are In 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

JJ Abrams knows exactly who Rey's parents are but he's not going to spill the beans.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' fans have been theorizing about the detail deliberately set up but left out of the film.

"I know quite a bit," Abrams teased when asked about Rey's lineage at an event meant to promote his project 'Roadies'.

"Obviously it's not for me to talk about in this moment because this is Rian's story to continue now. The last thing I'm going to do is reveal something that he would be upset about. I want to make sure that Rian gets the courtesy that he showed me."

Abrams is of course referring to Rian Johnson, who will direct Episode VIII, that is meant to continue the story.

The director admits he would've loved to have directed the next film knowing what's coming but "I’m just incredibly relieved that the movie is out, that it was well received."

"I am very much excited for and very jealous of anyone, especially Rian, who gets to work so closely with this extraordinary cast and crew. Truly an amazing group, so in that regard, for sure. Honestly, I'm also relieved to have gotten the chance to do a Star Wars movie."
