“Star Wars” just confirmed that there’s a very mysterious “connection” between Rey and Kylo Ren

When there’s no breaking Star Wars news, fans start pouring over every detail available hoping to find more information. That’s how someone discovered confirmation of a mysterious “connection” between Kylo and Rey. At some point in the last few months, StarWars.com updated the bios of Rey and Kylo to include some interesting clues as to what the deal is with the two characters.

Ever since The Force Awakens introduced Rey and Kylo into Star Wars canon, we’ve been speculating as to their connection to each other. Plus, how they are connected to original characters that we love so dearly. Once we discovered that Kylo is the son of Leia and Han, we started to wonder: How does Rey fit into this, and who are Rey’s parents? Force Awakens was light on those answers, and we still have so many questions!


That’s why when Heroic Hollywood noticed an update to both Rey and Kylo’s official StarWars.com pages, they took note. So what changed? Rey’s bio now reads as follows:

On Takodana, Skywalker’s lightsaber called to Rey, who experienced a Force vision. She rejected this call to destiny, but was captured by the dark side warrior Kylo Ren, with whom she shared a strange connection.

Okay, so we knew Kylo and Rey shared some sort of connection, right? But what could they possibly mean by “strange” connection?! Interesting word choice, StarWars.com! Here’s an excerpt from Kylo’s page:

 But he was intrigued when he captured Rey, a Jakku scavenger whose Force abilities were raw but very powerful. A mysterious connection seemed to link the two. 

So now this connection is strange and mysterious. What could this possibly mean? Could the connection be something we haven’t even thought of before? The next Star Wars film that could possibly help answer some of our many questions is The Last Jedi, which will be in theaters December 15, 2017. So feel free to wildly speculate and look for more clues until then!
