Pinoy Lucas Films & Disney artist confirms Rey Skywalker! [UPDATED]
UPDATE: (June 22, 2016) The camp of Mr. Rodel Gonzalez reached out to us and stated that the alleged “Rey Skywalker” artwork was mistakenly labeled by the printer and was corrected immediately. We are attaching their official statement below.
“We would like to clarify that Mr. Rodel Gonzalez is a Disney Fine Art artist and is no way involved in production, storyline or has prior knowledge towards any Star Wars or Disney film. The alleged “Rey Skywalker” piece was mistakenly labeled by the printer and was corrected immediately. It is unfortunate that the said mistake was deemed as any confirmation of the character’s lineage in the article posted. The said piece is an original study work of the artist and has no official title and only named Rey to identify the character. Mr. Gonzalez does interpretative art for Star Wars which means that it does not necessarily have to be from an exact footage, scene or storyline but used only as an inspiration for his creative freedom thus his work does not confirm nor influence outcome or history of the movies.”

An art exhibit in Solaire potentially reveals that the female protagonist in the new Star Wars trilogy is indeed actually a Skywalker.
My sisters were browsing through the exhibit when they contacted me about this specific theory being confirmed. Beneath the painting done by Rodel Gonzalez, the only Filipino licensed by Disney & Lucas Films, lies the title “Rey Skywalker”, and is for sale in the exhibit for Php120,000. Seeing the credibility of the artist and following all the speculation on Rey’s lineage, it is hard to deny that she may actually be a Skywalker.
Now this would allow for a lot of implications. Luke is most likely her father who left her before the movies, and the person off to kill all of the Jedi could actually be her
half-brother cousin. If you wish to see it for yourself, or buy the rather amazing painting, it is still on until June 30.
Update: Sorry ’bout that. Kylo Ren is not Rey’s half-brother.
