Daisy Ridley, one of the stars of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, says that Rey isn’t satisfied with what Kylo Ren told her about her parents.
One of the first questions people had after Star Wars: The Force Awakens was about who Rey’s parents were. Then, in The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren told Rey that her parents were nobodies and it didn’t matter.
It turns out in Episode IX, Rey isn’t satisfied with this answer. Daisy Ridley told EW: “The parents thing is not satisfied – for her and the audience.”
She also went on to say: “It’s not that she doesn’t believe it, but she feels there’s more to the story. And she needs to figure out what’s come before so she can figure out what to do next…”
So perhaps, a big part of the next movie will revolve around Rey getting to the bottom of her parentage, suggesting Kylo’s words in Episode VIII were not to be taken at face value after all…
