Plenty of questions are left to be answered in Episode IX, and Star Wars fans can only hold out hope that it will deliver. From Rey's true heritage to Lando Calrissian's return, these are just some of the biggest questions fans have going into The Rise of Skywalker.
One of the biggest mysteries within this new trilogy has centered on Rey, an extremely talented Jedi in training who, one might assume, comes from talented stock. Much like Luke Skywalker, who ended up serving as her mentor in The Last Jedi, Rey clearly comes from a storied family, and in The Force Awakens, it seemed like the next one or two installments might clear up who her parents truly were and whether or not she was a Skywalker, a Solo, or a member of another powerful legacy clan.
In The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren broke the news to Rey that she was nothing but the child of, quote, "junk traders" but naturally, most fans don't believe that a Jedi with such natural talent who seems poised to take up the lightsaber of someone like Luke Skywalker came from a clan of nobodies. Will The Rise of Skywalker reveal that she's actually a Skywalker? All we can do is wait and find out.
Introduced in The Force Awakens, Maz Kanata has left audiences curious since her first moment onscreen. A wise being who is apparently over a thousand years old, Maz is as inscrutable as she is sarcastic and endlessly endearing. Keep watching the video as we discuss the questions The Rise of Skywalker better answer!
