Anthony Breznican (@Breznican) - reporter for Entertainment Weekly - usually reports on the facts only for Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But after viewing the teaser for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, a theory began to develop regarding who Rey's parents are. (

Anthony joins BB-N8, Samuel the Hutt, and The Bow Tie Jedi Guy to lay out all the details and make his case. But the conversation goes well beyond the galaxy far, far away. We discuss Kurt Vonnegut, GI Joe and Seprentor, and much more, including his recounting of a conversation with George Lucas about life and fatherhood and the motivation behind one of the most famous moments in Star Wars history!
