Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” broke so many rules in terms of the "Star Wars" universe that we will likely hear countless stories of the process.
Take for example this: In "The Last Jedi" Rey tells Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) that her family “were nobody.” With Ren adding that “They were filthy junk traders. [They] sold you off for drinking money. They’re dead in a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert.”
According to Simon Pegg, who seems to be close-knit bud of Abrams' from “Star Trek” to "Mission: Impossible," Rey's family history was supposed to be very different. Pegg said that Abrams had another plan:
“I know what J.J. kind of intended or at least was being chucked around. I think that’s kind of been undone slightly by the last one. There was some talk of a relevant lineage for her,” Pegg said. By “relevant lineage,” he surely means to say “belongs to some other recognizable member of the universe.” Johnson nixed it.
