Rumored "Star Wars: Episode VIII" Script Leak Reveals Rey's Parentage--And It's Not Who You Think It Is
Is it time to go on Star Wars spoiler blackout already? Star Wars: The Force Awakens managed to stay relatively unspoiled, all things considered, but Episode VIII might not be faring as well. A leaked script rundown reveals several huge spoilers--all of the spoilers, really--including an Empire Strikes Back-esque twist.

Like many rumors, the leaked rundown comes from Reddit, so it's unclear how reliable the intel is. But if it's true, then Episode VIII reveals the answer to that burning question--who Rey's parents are--in the craziest way possible, in a moment that rivals the "I am your father" scene in Episode V. It would be insane and kind of hilarious if they did this, so my first instinct was to dismiss it, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense (it would also partially confirm this "crazy fan theory" that made the rounds a few months ago). You can read the full spoilers here, but click at your own risk, because if this is true, you might not want to ruin it.

For a few lesser spoilers, the script leaks reveal the return of Yoda, as well as confirming those rumors about Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker returning as a Force ghost. It also details the backstory of the rise of the Knights of Ren and the Jedi being wiped out, which is pretty much what you'd expect, and reveals that Kelly Marie Tran's character is a love interest for Finn with questionable loyalties.


Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently filming in England, Croatia, and the island of Skellig off the coast of Ireland. It is slated to come out in theaters on December 15, 2017.
