Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Episode VIII of Star Wars, It was released three years ago, but there is a scene that continues to divide the fans of the saga. It is about the moment when Rey (Daisy Ridley) goes into a cave in Ahch-To during the guardianship of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). There, the heroine experiences a strange sensation when she sees herself reflected in a mirror. What was writer / director Rian Johnson trying to show at the time? The director recently spoke with USA Today on this matter and, although he has wanted to keep its meaning open to the understanding of each fan, he has commented that it is a moment of self-determination for Rey.

Rian Johnson on the cave scene after asking if he sees Ben: Similar to Luke entering the cave in The Empire Strikes Back, is open to your interpretation. He did not want to be final about her so as not to take away what you captured from her”Comments editor Sariah Wilson on Twitter. “She sees [la escena] as if Rey had to do with who she has to connect with and answer to herself why she has been looking for answers in Luke. She wants to know her place in this story and is looking for people to find it. He likes that it is left open to interpretation ”, he adds.

For Johnson, the mirror scene is “An internal experience” of the protagonist. According to the director, Ben, the character played by Adam Driver in the final trilogy, is one of the people Rey looks to for an answer. Also in his parents.

As you may recall, in the movie scene the heroine asks to see her parents and, although a human figure appears, when her face is shown it is about herself. “I thought I was going to find answers here. I was wrong”says the protagonist. Actually, it wouldn’t be until Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker when she and the fans discovered, through a ‘flashback’, her parents.

His identity was one of the great mysteries of the last trilogy. Kylo Ren told Rey that her parents were junk dealers and that they sold her to get money to buy alcohol. However, the son of read (Carrie Fisher) y Han Solo (Harrison Ford) was wrong. Her father was the son of Emperor Palpatine and the couple abandoned her on Jakku when she was a child to protect her..
