Rumours of a Star Wars reboot have been rife since The Rise of Skywalker was released in 2019. Since then, the likes of YouTube leakers Mike Zeroh and Doomcock have claimed Rey (Daisy Ridley) will be making a return in a reboot of her character. The latest rumours continue to suggest she will be starring in the next Disney project and perhaps even appear in the next season of The Mandalorian after a time jump.

The news follows a report from Giant Freakin’ Robot whose “trusted and proven” source claims Rey will be making a comeback in the coming years.

While the publication couldn’t confirm the capacity of the character’s return, they were eager to explain it could be anything from a new film to a Disney Plus series.

At the moment in Star Wars canon Rey is the one final remaining Jedi Knight, after the death of both her master, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), and her lover, Ben Solo (Adam Driver).

Inverse seems to think Rey’s return could happen in the highly anticipated third season of The Mandalorian. This would follow the arrival of young Luke Skywalker.

In the final moments of The Mandalorian season two, a 20-something Luke takes Baby Yoda (Grogu) away to train him in the ways of the Force.

Canonically, fans already know that his Jedi Temple will ultimately be destroyed by Kylo Ren decades later before the events of the sequel trilogy.

The notion of Rey making an appearance in this series opens a lot of doors to the franchise but also prompts a number of questions.

At that point in the timeline, Rey would either be a baby or a toddler, meaning a Daisy Ridley-led Rey would require at least a two-decade time jump.

The publication pointed out that this isn’t a massive issue for The Mandalorian, however.

Baby Yoda is already 50-years-old, so another 20 years would not require him to look any different.

Similarly, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) spends most of his time in the series with his helmet on, so he could simply act older to rectify the time change.

Alternatively, the series could utilise the oft-forgotten World Between Worlds. 

The World Between Worlds is a fracture in time, space and the Force introduced in the TV show Star Wars: Rebels season 4.

Within this ethereal plane time travel is possible by any Jedi using the Force. This means Rey could certainly find her way into the current Mandalorian timeline without jumping forward 20 years.

However, considering The Mandalorian has only just introduced its first on-screen Jedi in the form of Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), it might be a bit of a stretch to start utilising time travel.

Meanwhile, Zeroh recently posited that Rey would be making a return in her own Disney Plus spin-off show.

Zeroh’s track record of getting rumours correct is not perfect, but the Disney and Star Wars leaker recently posited Daisy would go on to star as Rey in a TV show where she protects her son, Cade Skywalker.

He explained that Rey would immaculately conceive Cade – similar to Anakin Skywalker’s birth – and begin the next generation of Jedi Knights.

With another film trilogy coming from Disney in the near future, setting up a new young hero may be on the top of the franchise’s priority list.

The Star Wars saga is available on Disney Plus now.
