Who Is Rey's Father
Who Is Rey?
We are first introduced to Rey in 'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens'. She has become a key role in episode VIII as well. This trend will likely continue into episode IX. So, who is Rey exactly? She's a force sensitive who has, as of now, unknown parents. Rey is an important character, but we have no idea where she comes from yet. But, there are a number of good possibilities. And, the recent leak could be a huge red herring. So, who are they? It should also be noted that Ben Solo's (Kylo Ren's) apparent revelation to Rey was likely just some taunting to bring her to the dark side of the force.
Is One Of Them Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Obi-Wan Kenobi was a Jedi knight. Many of the Jedi did not engage in love interests. This is part of the Jedi code for multiple force sensitives. However, we know that Obi-Wan would have stopped being a Jedi for Satine Kryze. Knowing that something like this is indeed canon, we have to wonder if Obi-Wan Kenobi actively had intercourse. We are aware that not everyone in the Jedi order were completely celibate. There is a good possibility that Jedi like Obi-Wan may have had children, even if they were unaware of this at first. The power that Rey displays could also be indicative that she is the daughter of a powerful Jedi master. We will hopefully discover the truth very soon.
Was It Luke Skywalker Who Had The Child?
Luke Skywalker is one of the most famous characters in the entire series (which includes ten movies so far). We, as the audience, are still only beginning to learn and understand everything that Luke did between 'Return of the Jedi' and 'The Force Awakens'. Who knows; perhaps Luke had at least one love interest. And, maybe that woman had a child from him and din't tell him. His running away and turning his back on the force may have kept him from realizing the truth about her. I presume that we might discover the reality behind Rey's origins, but who knows?
Is Han Solo Rey's Dad?
First of all, we definitely know that Han Solo has had love interests. We know of his former girlfriend in the film 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' and in the original trilogy in Leia. Han is not a force sensitive, and wouldn't know if he had a child that a former lover could have hid from him. Leia could have been aware if Han had cheated on her, but she may be unaware of Han's previous children - especially if he didn't know either. I personally feel as though Han Solo is a bit of a stretch, although I consider him a possibility.

Is It Qui-Gon Jinn?
Qui-Gon Jinn seems to me to be a very real possibility. Qui-Gon was not an average Jedi, and it seems completely and certainly possible that he may have had sex. Qui-Gon isn't the kind of Jedi who strictly followed more conventional rules, but who certainly had a place to stand. Some people consider him to be something of a "grey Jedi". That is to state that he was less about the sides of the force, and more just about the force as a source of revelation and guidance. Such a Jedi could most definitely have had a child under the right circumstances. It would explain why Obi-Wan isn't seemingly aware of Rey's origins, and why no one else has anything to say (since the Jedi were almost extinct after order 66. I highly suspect that Qui-Gon may be Rey's actual Dad. Even if this is so, then who would the mother be? For this, I simply do not have an answer yet.
Could Rey have been born of a virgin like Anakin Skywalker, or perhaps from no womb at all? The midichlorians were responsible for the virgin birth of Anakin. Could a similar occurrence have happened for Rey? Is it possible that the midichlorians may have made her without the necessity of a womb at all? This kind of thinking seems more in the realm of the 'Star Wars' canon. The midichlorians have done such things in the past. Is it something that is becoming more common? Is it already more common than we think? Let me know what you all feel in the comments below.
