The Rumor Mill: Rey's Parentage From Star Wars. Part THREE!!!
Ya ya I know! Another post or rumor about this dang girls parentage. Now, as I've stated before, I don't like posting too many of these rumors or theories because some seem so far-fetched and to be honest just foolish. But, this one caught my attention and really stirred my imagination.
If you'll all recall a while back, about the beginning of the year, when all the rumor mills were stirring and speculating that Rey could be a Kenobi, in fact Obi-Wan's granddaughter. Those theories all stated that Kenobi hooked up with Duchess Satine from Mandalore during the Clone Wars Era. The big problem with that was that she was killed off during this period. Meaning, that it was impossible for her to briefly meet, hook up sexually with a man who took an oath against such acts, then carry and conceive a child. The time line was just far too short. Which leads me to another possible theory.
Katee Sackhoff of Battlestar Galactica and Riddick fame has made a public announcement that she had voiced her Star Wars role again for the Disney series "Rebels". Well, there was only one role she voiced and that was Bo-Katan Kryze in the clone wars series. Now, she and Kenobi weren't as close as Satine, but since Disney purchased all of the rights to Star Wars they've been rewriting history, deleting events and characters, and reintroducing old favorites as well (like Thrawn).
Where does this take us you might be asking? Well, it opens that door back up to the possibility that Rey could be a Kenobi. Bo-Katan was the one who helped Kenobi escape from Mandalore, and if there is going to be any possibility of Kenobi hooking up with another woman it might possibly be her. I'm not saying that I believe or trust this in any way shape for form. I don't have any evidence to back it up, it's just a theory. A theory and rumor that I am after all starting. I'm only feeding this beast because I love the idea of Rey being a Kenobi. I find that Rey being a Skywalker is just too dang obvious and I feel like Disney is looking to pull the rug out from underneath us when her true parentage is resolved. In short, I'm hoping for some originality to this new saga.
I'd love to get a big discussion going about this. Lets talk about it, give me your thoughts. Could Kenobi break his sacred oath he took with the Jedi? Could he have been attracted to such a powerful warrior woman?
C'mon folks, talk to me. I look forward to your thoughts!
