Fans have understandably high expectations of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" as the follow-up to "The Force Awakens". Some believe that Rian Johnson's "Episode VIII" could feature a major plot twist that is set to be more shocking than Darth Vader admitting he is Luke Skywalker's father in "The Empire Strikes Back". Will "Star Wars 8" finally confirm that Daisy Ridley's character is actually Rey Kenobi? Or is there a more jaw-dropping reveal that could change everyone's "Star Wars" beliefs this December?

There is little doubt that "The Empire Strikes Back" had one of the biggest plot twists in cinematic history. After all, everyone believed that Luke Skywalker's father was killed by Darth Vader because that's what Obi-Wan Kenobi told him. However, the epic lightsaber duel between Luke and the villain led to a dismembered hand and that unforgettable line: "No, I AM your father." But is it possible that "Star Wars 8" plans to outdo "Episode V" with its own shocking plot twist? Is Daisy Ridley actually playing Obi-Wan's granddaughter Rey Kenobi?

CeleBeat has previously reported on Daisy Ridley being introduced as Rey Kenobi at the Star Wars Celebration although Lucasfilm had no comment about the possible leak. Some believe the identity of Rey's parents (or one very particular grandparent) is set to be the huge plot twist in "Star Wars 8", confirming that old Ben actually had children of his own. However, there is another more shocking theory about Luke Skywalker that could change everything in "The Last Jedi".

There have been speculations that Luke Skywalker might not be as good as everyone assumes in "Star Wars 8", as per CeleBeat. There is a possibility that Luke may have turned to the dark side following the slaughter at the Jedi temple and has intentions to use Rey Kenobi for his own evil purpose. The true plot twist will finally be revealed when "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" premieres on December 15.
