Luke Skywalker's Theme Mixed With Rey's Theme From Star Wars

How John Williams Gave the Most Subtle Hint About Rey's Parents in Star Wars

Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hit theaters back in December, and it left a handful of lingering questions in its wake. For instance, who is Supreme Leader Snoke and where the heck is Daniel Craig? Perhaps the biggest mystery, though, is the identity of Rey's parents. There are a few theories out there, but this tiny detail seems to lean subtly into one: that Luke Skywalker is Rey's father. While many have noticed the similarities between Luke and Rey's respective themes, John Williams took it a step further by combining them in the original soundtrack for The Force Awakens, sneaking it into the end of the credits. The result is seamless, beautiful, and awfully telling. Listen in the clip above, then find out everything we know about Episode VIII.
