Did The New "Star Wars" TV Spot Give Away A Secret About Han Solo?

Like father, like daughter?

A new TV spot for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped Sunday morning.

The force is calling to you... Check out the first official TV spot for #StarWars #TheForceAwakens. https://t.co/tsKiEvZAK7

We get a couple of glimpses of new footage here, which are mainly some shots of Rey (Daisy Ridley) being a badass. For example, here she is being pursued by and fighting Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)...

But, wait? Is it just us or does the trailer STRONGLY imply that Rey is the daughter of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher)?

"I have lived long enough to see the same eyes in different people," Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o) says as footage of Rey bleeds into a shot of Han Solo. "I see your eyes. I know your eyes."

We also get a shot of her flying the Millennium Falcon in a way that would make "Dad" proud.

We weren't the only ones left with this impression...

There is no doubt in my mind now that Rey is Han and Leia's daughter. And she can fly the Falcon like her Dad and Chewie. #TheForceAwakens

"I have lived long enough to see the same eyes in different people" THE FRAME WENT FROM REY TO HAN I SEE YOU STAR WARS

I am getting the feeling that Rey is Han and Leia's daughter. I have the feeling Han hands the Falcon off to her. #StarWarsTheForceAwakens

NEVERMIND REY IS DEFINITELY HAN AND LEIAS DAUGHTER

There's at least one important question about this theory, though:

BURNING Q re: THE FORCE AWAKENS: If Rey turns out to be Han & Leia's daughter, will they explain how she ended up with an English accent?

  1. So, what do you think? Is Rey the daughter of Han and Leia?
