Ridley's statement to USA Today has opened up the solved mystery once again in which she said that the director (JJ Abrams) has said that the question about Rey's parents will be answered in The Rise of Skywalker and at the end of the film, we would know what the deal was.
"Genre-wise, it's different from the other two, which will become clear when the film comes out", she said.
While we won't know for sure until the movie hits cinemas, one clue may lie in upcoming Star Wars movie's name; The Rise of Skywalker.
Eish! Freak hailstorm engulfs Mexican city
The governor of Jalisco state, where Guadalajara is located, said he witnessed deposits of hail that were one meter deep. The build-up was up to five foot (1.5m) thick in parts, with the tops of vehicles just peeping above the ice.
Ridley was recently a guest on the Happy Sad Confused podcast where she compared the Throne Room fight in The Last Jedi to a new action sequence in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Speaking of send-offs though, it would be remiss to not want to know exactly what is going on with Rey's parentage and the source of her incredible force powers after The Force Awakens teased something special only for The Last Jedi to take all of that promise away.
There is a lot of speculation about the relationship between Kylo Ren and Rey, with many fans suggesting that they may be brother and sister.
"If people hold something incredibly dear and think they know how it should be and it's not like that", she added.
Wimbledon Match Preview: Kyrgios vs. Nadal
Barty next plays British wildcard Harriet Dart on Saturday in a showstopper nearly certain to be scheduled for Centre Court. Not quite in keeping with the famous Wimbledon etiquette, in the SAME game, he looked to catch Nadal out yet again.
This revelation disappointed many fans, who had been led to believe Rey - like Luke Skywalker before her - would carry on one of the main Star Wars lineages by being either a Skywalker, Kenobi, Solo or Palpatine.
Abrams said earlier this year that The Rise of Skywalker aims to offer a satisfying conclusion not only to the new trilogy that began with 2015's The Force Awakens, but also for the entire "Skywalker Saga" that began in 1977.
Then the actress discussed Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.
Disney Race Bends The Little Mermaid
The original 1989 animated hit followed the mermaid princess Ariel as she sought to fall in love with a human prince on land. Menken wrote the film's original music, including the songs "Under the Sea", "Part of Your World" and "Kiss the Girl".
Also in the interview, Ridley talked about an epic lightsaber battle between Rey and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) that's coming up in Rise of Skywalker. "I feel people are going to be satisfied". But if Ridley is saying that Abrams plans to answer that question (again), it seems likely he's prepared to retcon Johnson's decision.
