The revelation of Rey’s lineage in Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been one of its biggest points of contention. It was a question raised in The Force Awakens, hotly debated in the years after, and played as a red herring in the movie itself. However, when the answer finally came, some viewers felt the payoff was a…
Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have a Blu-ray release date yet, but here’s your first look at one of its deleted scenes.
You’d think the internet would be talking about Rey and Star Wars comics this week thanks to the release of IDW’s Forces of Destiny: Rey comic, inspired by the female-focused animated series. Instead, it’s because of Marvel’s Darth Vader comic, and it’s for some weird reasons.
Every Jedi master takes a different approach to the young Force-sensitives who seek them out for tutelage, and Luke Skywalker is no exception. As great as it was to see what sort of teacher Luke would be, there was one part of his getting to know Rey that was truly disturbing, and in the worst possible way.
There are a lot of questions coming out of Star Wars: The Last Jedi—like, a lot of them—but one of the biggest stems from a discovery about Rey’s mysterious past. Was it genuine, or a devious con to get Rey to turn to the Dark Side? Technically, it was real... but it could become fake later.
When Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released, it’s going to be a little like Rey Groundhog Day. We’ll either find out who her parents are—or we’ll find out that we have another two years of speculation on our hands.
But that doesn’t mean she won’t.

In what is probably the saddest piece of The Last Jedi news we’ll actually get before the movie drops, ladies and gentlemen, I regret to inform you: Rey, the new hero of the Star Wars saga, has no time for porgs.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of all the fabulous new toys just waiting to drain our wallets of their precious monetary fluids.

It’s nearly time for a new Star Wars movie, which means we’re even closer to emptying our wallets all over some new Star Wars toys in the run up—and the show for The Last Jedi is kicking off a little early at Comic-Con with the change to get not one, but two new figures from movie.
Remember the outcry over the lack of a Rey token in Hasbro’s The Force Awakens edition of Monopoly last year? Well, there’s bad news—the new, Rey-inclusive set is not available in US toy stores. But the reason appears to because no one wants The Force Awakens Monopoly at all.

The second episode of Lucasfilm’s new webseries Forces of Destiny is out, and it’s another cute entry featuring Rey and BB-8. It’s also another entry set in the 12-or-so-hour-long period between them meeting for the first time and heading to Niima Outpost to try and find the little droid’s owner.
Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber is no more—at least namewise, that is. It turns out, internally at Lucasfilm, the marketing team no longer views this weapon as one owned by the fallen Jedi... but instead, it’s now officially Rey’s weapon of choice.
Late last night, Lucasfilm and Disney announced Forces of Destiny, a new animated series/merchandise line focusing on the female heroes of the Star Wars galaxy. The idea of new stories with these characters was already fascinating, but now that we know even more about the series, we can’t wait until it arrives.
Rooted in the visual imagery of classic ships like the Millennium Falcon, Star Destroyers, X-Wings, and TIE Fighters, The Force Awakens didn’t get much of a chance to really give us some new iconic vehicles for the Star Wars saga. But one great new design it did give us was Rey’s Jakku Speeder—and it’s getting a…
Back in last July, we learned that whatever hairdo Daisy Ridley was sporting as Rey was somehow so important that Lucasfilm felt it needed to be hidden, even when Ridley was just working out. Now, thanks to a picture of empty toy packaging, this great mystery of our time has been solved.
Warning: This could be nothing or it could be everything. Sometime in the past few months, the official Star Wars database entries for Rey and Kylo Ren were updated. Admittedly these get updated fairly regularly, adding detail as plot points slide from being considered spoilers to becoming simple facts. But these last…
