Star Wars: Episode 8 is going to dig deeper into the relationship between Luke Skywalker and Rey. As per a new theory shared by Star Wars expert Mike Zeroh, Rey can be the clone of Luke.

In the end moments of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Luke, and Rey are seen meeting each other at planet Ahch-To. When Rey hands over his lost lightsaber, she makes a sad face. Perhaps, Rey is missing a fatherly figure in her life. And Luke Skywalker fulfills it in Star Wars: Episode 8. Read to know more.

Luke Skywalker Is Not Rey’s Father

It is seen in the first installment of Star Wars trilogy that Rey considers Han Solo as a fatherly figure in her life. The actual mystery of her parentage is still concealed. Hence, when Rey meets Luke Skywalker at Ahch-To she might be missing having a father in her life. That can be a possible reason why Luke Skywalker can become a fatherly figure in her life.

In his video, Zeroh also says that Luke will make Rey strong enough. He might even train her and make her capable of fighting the dark side of the force.

Rey Is Luke’s Clone

A new theory discussed by the aforementioned source says Rey can be Luke’s female clone. To understand this better, the expert takes us to the incident of Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back.

In this above-mentioned film, Darth Vader slices off Luke’s hand with a lightsaber. Perhaps the DNA from this hand is taken and Luke’s clone is made. This clone is none other than Rey. If this is true then, Mark Hamill’s character will not be Rey’s actual father but his clone who might be trained by him.

Rian Johnson Talks Star Wars: Episode 8 Title

Rian Johnson has taken to Twitter to discuss what is the exact meaning behind the Star Wars: Episode 8 title. As per the director, the title means this is ‘the final Jedi’. It does not reveal much, but this can mean the end of the order.

He did not reveal whether the word Jedi is plural or singular. But made it clear to his fans that the words ‘last’ and ‘final,’ are synonymous in meaning.

Star Wars: Episode 8 will pick up right where Episode 7 has left off. It is going to reveal who is the last Jedi for its fans. Till then, fans will have to wait for Star Wars: Episode 8 to hit the theaters to know the real meaning. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to release on Dec. 15, 2017.

Felt so good to drop this into the cut this morning. (via @riancjohnson) #TheLastJedi
