3 Burning Questions from Star Wars VII

Spoiler Alert: If you have not seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and do not want any spoilers, click away from this article now.

The seventh Star Wars, The Force Awakens, has come out. It is one of the highest grossing films of the year, although with such a great movie come many different questions that fans have theorized about. These are some of the many questions fans asked after seeing the movie.

Who is Supreme Leader Snoke?

As Darth Vader’s master was Emperor Palpatine, Kylo Ren’s master was known as Supreme Leader Snoke. Fans have started to wonder who Snoke is. Some have wondered if Snoke is a sith lord known as Darth Plagus who looks very similar to Snoke. Darth Plagus was referred to in Revenge of the Sith by Chancellor Palpatine. He was known to have the power to bring people back to life, but according to legend he was killed in his sleep. Also, the tale of Darth Plagus took place over fifty years before The Force Awakens.

Who is the man who gave Poe part of the map to Luke Skywalker?

In the beginning of the movie, an old man gives Poe Dameron part of the map to Luke Skywalker, but people are now wondering who he is. He was killed by Kylo Ren when the First Order invaded Jakku, so we don’t get to see him much, but when Kylo Ren says he will kill him if he doesn’t him where the map is he says “You may try. But you can not deny the truth that is your family”. Hearing that line says that he could possibly be a relative of Kylo Ren.

Who are Rey’s parents?

One of the most common questions fans asked after seeing The Force Awakens who are Rey’s parents. There have been many possibilities. Rey could be the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia. She’s an expert pilot and knows about fixing ships like Han and She is very strong with the force like Kylo Ren. Also, when Kylo Ren is looking into Rey’s mind, he says, “And Han Solo, he seems like the father you never had”.  What if he is the father she never had. Another theory is that Rey is related to Obi Wan Kenobi. This theory doesn’t have as much evidence as the others, but in Rey’s force dream when she touched the light saber in Maz Kanada’s bar, you hear the voice of Obi Wan Kenobi calling to Rey. The final possibility is that Rey is the child of Luke Skywalker. She is strong with the force, she’s an expert pilot, and she has a bunch of Rebellion antiques.

Hopefully some of these questions are answered when Star Wars episode VIII and maybe even Star Wars Rogue One.
