Star Wars fans probably walked out of the theater from The Force Awakens with a couple of thoughts swirling in their heads. In addition to their general awe (or disappointment, as the case may be), audiences are left wondering what next steps are in store for Rey (Daisy Ridley) and exactly what role Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) — who makes only a brief wordless appearance in the film’s closing seconds — will play in her journey to becoming a Jedi Knight.

More specifically, the film implies that she is going to Luke not only to bring him back to assist the Resistance in the struggle against the First Order but in the hopes that he will provide her with the training she needs to fulfill her destiny. One of the most popular talking points in the aftermath of the film’s release has been the question of Rey’s parentage, namely whether Luke himself is her father.
